Calling all Phoebe Waller-Bridge fans! We’ve scoured the net to find the Fleabag dress of your dreams…
As a rule, we do not aspire to copy Fleabag’s life choices. Her wardrobe, on the other hand, is a thing we do envy.
The show may not have set out to make any fashion statements, but Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s striking wardrobe choices (such as her iconic backless jumpsuit) have prompted viewers to rush from their televisions to their smartphones in a desperate bid to track them down for themselves. So it should come as little surprise to learn that, in the two weeks since the finale of Fleabag’s second season, Lyst has reported that online searches for red dresses is up by 38%. And, yeah, it’s all thanks to the gorgeous, floral number that Waller-Bridge’s character donned for the last episode.
Speaking to The Guardian about the standout wardrobe choice, the show’s costume designer Ray Holman said the red dress was “perfect for Fleabag… slightly inappropriately short hemline and good ethics”.
Naturally, this is something we’re all keen to emulate.
Sadly the exact dress, which is from ethical clothing brand Reformation, is no longer in stock. But don’t let that get you down, because you can still achieve this perfect summer look with another gorgeous red tea dress-style frock.
With that in mind, we’ve found a selection of red summer dresses, all of which feature a flourish of florals and that tea dress silhouette we love so much.
Shop our ideas below and get yourself a slice of that Fleabag magic.
Faithful The Brand
We love these adorable puff sleeves (a trend that’s been blowing up recently) and, even though this dress isn’t strictly tea dress in shape, it still nips in at the waist, which scores serious fashion points from us.
