Dresses with Sleeves Challenge Day 6 – Wrap dress with a difference


over 50s style imageArticle by Ceri Wheeldon

Wrap dresses can be elegant and flattering at any age- but a great option for women over 50. This one from Coast at John Lewis has a little extra detail – a waterfall hem overlay.

Again, great for summer parties or a day at the races.

    I have found two wonderful dresses with sleeves recently. Both are from Mary Portas at House of Fraser and both are more or less the same style. One is in a thick stretchy fabric and the sleeves reach the elbow. The second is in a lighter weight but still stretch (and slimming) fabric with sleeves a couple of inches shorter. They are both great for the over 50s who don’t want to show too much upper arm – or any at all!

    I also found a lovely wrap over dress with long sleeves from Pepperberry, a shop that caters for women with a larger cup size than average or, as they say, “with your boobs in mind”.
