Dresses with Sleeves – with added vintage drama – day 3 of new challenge


Article by Ceri Wheeldon

What could be better? Dresses with sleeves are far from boring! I love both monochrome and vintage inspired prints, so when the two are combined to create a stunning , sophisticated dress like this one by Damsel in a Dress, it goes straight to the top of my wishlist.

The abstract top combines with a solid block skirt, with the clever placement of the abstract print creating the illusion of a smaller waist.

This dress is lined in a stretch jersey to provide a sleeker silhouette.

Great for wearing now, but would also work well for spring – ideal to wear as a guest at a wedding!

The Ditta Dress by Damsel in a Dress is available at John Lewis . £129

    I am loving this section with the dresses with sleeves. It’s a fab idea Ceri and the shapes are flattering for the midriff area where little wobbles inevitably appear post menopause. Thank you!

      Glad you like them Fi. I am having to hold myself back from ordering them all. I ran a similar challenge over the summer and bought far too many!
