Style pick by Ceri Wheeldon
I know I previously undertook a Dresses with Sleeves Challenge – where I tried to find a Dress with Sleeves a day for 50 days. It was incredibly popular and I have received lots of requests to do this again. I know I made a half hearted attempt a while ago to do it again, but I had so much going on in my life that I couldn’t quite get excited about clothes….but as I am now moving onwards and upwards again I thought it would be a good time to once again make a bid for the Dresses with Sleeves Challenge. I hope you like my choices!
Also I will be adding some non ‘dress’ style picks and some video styling tips and picks over on the Fab after Fifty youtube channel – so do look out for those!
Dress Number One
The ‘cold shoulder’ trend looks as though it here for a while…and it is a look that can work for us. The Cold shoulder dress is perfect for keeping the upper arms covered, and unlike off the shoulder dresses you are still able to wear a normal bra – a distinct advantage as we reach out 50s. A fun and sexy twist on a dress with sleeves. I liked the zip detail on the back of this one, and the sleeve length makes it perfect for wearing a statement cuff.
This Black Cold Shoulder dress is by Shubette , costs £130 and is available from House of Fraser
