Dresses with sleeves are now blooming in the stores both online and off, and although there’s a huge choice of sleeveless dresses, if you’re anything like me you want sleeves throughout the autumn and winter months and also dresses that flatter everywhere, so not your body-con knit version that won’t do anything for a few extra curves.
Every mainstream designer is now producing their version of the wrap dress, but I find that many of these have skirts that are too full and so add width to the hem I’m not looking for. I love dresses that are slim and sleek, that have a bit of ruching at the front, preferably a v neck as it tends to be more flattering, and…….yes……..sleeves.
Stay away from too much fabric, full skirts, frumpy prints and make sure that you get the length right on your dress. It’s worth every moment (or penny) getting a dress shortened if you want to look sexy rather than frumpy.
These are all from the new collections – most are wrap or fixed wrap which again is very flattering. All my kind of dress. Have I? No not yet……………
