Women over 50 ‘do’ glamour so well. You only have to look at celebrities over 50 on the red carpet to see how they can they really set the standard when it comes to glamour. With or without wearing dresses with sleeves!
But how easy is it to find a dress that is age appropriate, looks glamorous AND covers those arms?
I came across this dress with sleeves from Coast – I think it’s fabulous. I love the chiffon sleeves which have a wire style frill hem for glamour and movement.
Fabulous and fun. Very ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. With hair and statement pearls and earrings this dress could not fail to bring out your inner Audrey.
If you have a wardrobe full of shift dresses and don’t want to invest in another black dress, you can always look to add sheer sleeves to an existing dress. You can now buy sleeves that can be worn under your dress – and for a touch of glamour wear crystal cuffs such as these ( I have bought similar at a French market) for a fabulous evening look.
The dress is £135 from Coast
Sleeves £32 from Marisota
Cuffs from Marisota
