An example of a Tent Dress City Style- A tent dress is a dress that hangs loose from the shoulder to below the hips, and does not have a waistline. Typically it is worn without a belt or elastic so that it can hang loosely.

This is another example of a tent dress. There are no darts and it is flares at the hem. I love the black ruffles at the bottom that really emphasize the flare.
