Dresses with Sleeves 2016 : Day One : chic and simple monochrome


Post by Ceri Wheeldon

black and white dress with sleeves

Back by popular demand! I have received so many requests to relaunch this series, so here is the first Dress with Sleeves for 2016 – not sure I’ll get to 50 dresses this time around – but will do my best!

 

I have chosen this simple, monochrome shift dress to start this series – I think the lace detail at the hem and sleeves give the dress a more contemporary look. Great for dressing up- or down. The sleeve length is just below the elbow – so covers bingo wings while keeping the look ‘fresh’.

 

Wear with flat pumps for relaxed daytime look or heels for heels for a more formal occasion. I love pointed toe flats – I think they are so much more feminine than pumps with rounded toes.

These pointed flats from House of Fraser would be great .

Monochrome always looks fresh and chic.  Sold via the Little Black Dress website ( they sell dresses in lots of colours other than black!),  this is a fabulous dress  and currently a bargain at the discounted price of only £34!
