The Tallahassee Tale

In the summer of 2016, we launched a soft cotton jersey dress in a range of unique prints. 3 years on, the Tallahassee has become a Weird Fish staple. We caught up with our Design Director, Beth, to find out why a summer holiday evolved into our favourite summer dress…

Shop Tallahassee

‘I was packing for a trip to Tallahassee in Florida. It was going to be hot and as a sun worshipper I was excited to soak up some vitamin D. Packing however was not going well. My bed had been submerged by a sea of clothes. I’m organised when I pack, I knew I needed outfits that were perfect for exploring Cascades park, visiting Lake Overstreet, going out for dinner, going to museums, shopping… essentially, I was trying to cram most of my summer wardrobe in my case.

When I was back at work, this experience kept nagging at me. I wish I’d had something that was comfortable, completely versatile, and vibrant, generally to complement my lifestyle. 


Summer makes me think of sundresses and cooling cotton is the perfect fabric for warmer weather. Comfort is key to all our designs, so the shape is designed to flatter and the soft fabric will make it feel like a favorite from day one. Prints require minimal accessorising, so in my opinion they’re always a winner. I can complete the outfit by adding a pump or sandal and a block colour bag. For the summer, prints are the perfect way to add a vibrant pop of colour.’

Since 2016, we’ve created 18 exclusive Weird Fish prints for the Tallahassee dress. Pair with pumps for a day look or a heel for an evening look. Wear it to lunch, on the beach, at the bar. Whatever adventure your summer weekend holds, the Tallahassee is ready.

This year, The Tallahassee is available in 3, fresh new prints. Catch your favourite today. If you love this dress, why not try our super-soft cotton jersey Paw Paw t-shirt, or if our Malmo skirt if you love our prints? This fabric is undoubtedly a Weird Fish winner.
