I previously ran a ‘Dresses with Sleeves’ challenge where I featured a dress a day for 50 days. I keep being asked when I’ll do it again – so here I am. Day 1 on the 2014 Spring/Summer Dresses with Sleeves to look stylish over 50 challenge! Last time I was far too tempted by the dresses I selected – and needed to buy a bigger wardrobe as a result – I’m hoping I can be a little more restrained this year – as does my bank balance.
I will try to include a variety of styles – and prices. Do let me know which are your favourites – and please feel free to add your own styling tips to the comments!
For Day One I just had to choose a dress in FabafterFifty pink to get us started!
This Hot Pink Michael Kors Wrap Dress £165 with long sleeves has a deep ‘V’ neckline (which helps elongate the neck), and pin detail at the waist which gives a waterfall drop effect. Ideal for spring weddings, but equally can be dressed down for work or lunch with friends.
Flattering for most figure types, definitely a winner!
I would accessorise with a clutch, such as this Michael Kors Michael Kors Berkley Black Clutch bag , £195 a pair of heels, I love these fuchsia court shoes from LK Bennett LK Bennett (£180) and a statement necklace such as this Gold and Rose Cabochon Statement Necklace (£36) .
All of these are available from House of Fraser
