Dresses with Sleeves – a dress that flatters in Day 4 of the challenge

Anyone for spots? There is absolutely no need to avoid pattern in our 50s (and beyond) .This grey spotted dress has ruching around the waist help  to draw the eye in and help disguise extra pounds around the middle. The three quarter length sleeves are incredibly flattering and the ideal length to draw the eye to the waistline and elongate the lower half of the body. The slight scoop of the neckline helps to elongate the neck and the cut of the dress allows for movement. All in all a winner.

I would wear with a pair of kitten heels and understated jewellery and the spots create enough impact without adding anything that will create a look that is too ‘busy’.

The Sandwich faded spot grey dress is £82 from John Lewis
