Dresses with sleeves



I've decided to create a new regular feature - it doesn't need explaining. Suffice to say that dresses with sleeves look slicker, hide wobbly triceps and are the reason why Diane von Furstenberg is a very wealthy woman.













From the top: Libelula, Hobbs, Mary Portas, Hobbs, Diane von Furstenberg.

I agree...the green dress is gorgeous! I have learned to wear jackets and cardigans with sleeveless dresses...but I no longer go completely sleeveless.

Love that green dress. I get overheated really easily (must be my age) so I'm afraid I bare my arms most of the time. x

Yes, sleeves look good on dresses, especially at this time of the year.
I like something over my long arms.

What a good idea for a regular feature -- and what good choices you've made. I love the 2nd (Hobbs)for cut/shape, not as sure about print/colour.

Vix - or because you're a hardy northener (?!)

Materfamilias - I think you'd look fabulous in the spotty dress. Go on be brave!

I love sleeved dresses, not because I don't like baring my arms but because it keeps me warm! Love that green dress.

The green dress looks so easy to wear, I don't know the brand, off to source!

great idea - I need frocks with sleeves - because it's so damned cold as much as because of my wee bingo wings!

I'd also prefer the green dress! It is more appealing and does really hide your big and fatty triceps! lolz!

Oh joy, dresses for chicken wings! I love the red dress but the skirt is a bit too short for me, my arms and knees are both better hidden.

Northern Snippet said...

Totally agree with you,but I'm always looking for a proper long sleeve(to the wrist) not a cropped one which I think make you look out of proportion.

Thanks for all your positive feedback - more dresses with sleeves coming soon!
