80s Retro Styled Cobalt Blue Nautical Cotton Knit Trapeze Tea Midi Dress

by Holy Cats! Vintage Store

Lovely and stylish 40s inspired Cobalt blue tea midi dress from probably the 80s. The dress features a scoop neckline with a back and white bar trim, a 3/4 flared sleeves. The dress has a trapeze silhouette and can be worn with or without a belt (the one presented in a photo gallery is not included and is just as an example of styling). It beautifully flares from armpits to hem and has a pull on style. A material tag is cut off so my best guess is the dress is made of cotton and viscose blend with a bit of lycra or elastane (3%-5%) as the knit fabric is stretchy. Has a nice weight to it. 

Estimated fit sizes UK12-14/US8-10/EU40, but please check out measurements below to ensure a great fit.


  • Shoulders 15"
  • Bust 36"
  • Waist free (up to 43")
  • Hips free
  • Length 47"

The measurements provided are taken with the garment lying flat, fastened. They are the actual measurements of the garment and not the measurements of the person it will fit. Please allow 1" each way for a better fit.

Style tip: pair the dress with a thin retro style black belt (as shown) and heels for a more polished look or wear it without belt with army boots for casual loose everyday Grunge wear. Would look great with wedges! Perfect for wedding guest attire, Easter, 4th of July Celebration, vintage themed events or as a cocktail dress.

Excellent vintage condition and looks unworn. No holes, stains, tears, rips, runs, odor or arm pit issues or other notable flaws. Buy with confidence! Clean and ready for wear or gifting. Gift wrap available! We recommend dry clean only. Learn more about vintage care
