The recent dresses with sleeves campaign was incredibly popular. And it seems it didn’t go unnoticed by some of the retailers of the dresses I featured.
One of my favourite dresses was by Ceme London- and it seems quite a number of Fabafterfifty readers agreed, as Ceme noticed many of you clicking through to buy from them.
As a result they have contacted me to offer FabAfterFifty readers a discount of 20% off their new collection ( with and without sleeves!). You just need to use the code FAF20 at the checkout.
I have been flipping through the Ceme website and I my own wishlist is quite long- although ironically my favourite is without sleeves this time!

We all want to look stylish and sophisticated over 50. We can still be colourful and add a bold colour to our summer wardrobe.
For Day 49 of the Dresses with Sleeves Challenge I have chosen a bright yellow shift dress with a cut out design. This is not a dress for anyone wanting to fade into the background!
This impeccably tailored dress features a round neckline, cut-out detail across the chest, panel detail at the waist and cutwork on the hem. It also has three-quarter length sleeves and a concealed back zip. Dramatic!

Putting on the glitz is great at any age, so why not a touch of sparkle to your wardrobe in your 50s.
For Day 48 of the Dresses with Sleeves Challenge I have selected a plain pale grey wrap effect dress with a touch of diamante around the neckline. This dress from Shubette is in jersey, has a zip fastening and three quarter length sleeves. With this dress you can sparkle inside and out!

Totally understated elegance, a shift dress with sleeves can be very stylish option over 50.
For day 47 of the Dresses with Sleeves Challenge I have chosen a pale grey lace and embroidery dress by Karen Millen from House of Fraser. With ¾ length sleeves and a scalloped edge on hem and cuffs, this is an ideal dress for daytime special occasions.

Weddings and summer events such as race meetings offer great opportunities to wear something a little special and look stylish over 50 – with or without a hat!
For Day 46 of the Dresses with Sleeves Challenge I have to confess to cheating (sorry!) as I have chosen a pink dress with a bolero jacket by Sublette. This knee length dress mixes floral with plain to great effect. The jacket would also look great over a plain grey or black shift dress.
