Day 9 2014 Dresses with Sleeves Challenge – something for the weekend


Lauren Capri navy and white £130Article by Ceri Wheeldon

A more casual dress with sleeves for day 9 of the challenge. Casual does not just mean jeans! This nautical look dress is a fabulous alternative to jeans. A striped dress can be casual grownup dressing at its best.

The dress has a flattering boat neck, buttons on the shoulders, three quarter length sleeves,  and a belt to create a more feminine silhouette. I particularly like the back on this one.

Back of dress

The wider stripe on the top enables the narrower stripes on the lower half create the illusion of a smaller bottom. Very welcome in my case!

Best with ballet flats or even traditional deck shoes.

This dress is from Lauren by Ralph Lauren and costs £130 from John Lewis
