Dresses with Sleeves – make the sleeves interesting.


glamourous dress with sheer sleeves imageArticle by Ceri Wheeldon.

It might be tempting to think of wearing dresses with sleeves once we reach our 50s as an easy way of simply covering our arms – and bingo wings!  Don’t think of wearing sleeves as a compromise. Sleeves can also add a glamorous feature to a dress.  Sheer sleeves in lace, net, or ‘spot lace’ as in the dress I’ve selected here, can provide cover for the arms, while making the sleeves ‘less heavy’. Great for evenings where you want to add a touch of glamour, and where less is definitely more!

This particular dress by Michaela Louisa has a mock wrap front with flattering draping, I think of it as a classic with a twist!
