Long-Sleeved Dresses

A long-sleeved dress can take you through so many occasions, day and night, especially if you don’t like showing off your arms. Finding shapes to suit your silhouette can be an overwhelming mission, though, so stick to our simple guidelines the next time you’re shopping.

Curvy

This dress will hug you in all the right places and glide over the parts that need a bit of ‘concealing’. We love the wrap style that will enhance your waistline and the deep V to show off your neckline. Add a belt in the evening to make it more dressy and try a pair of ankle boots in the day for more of a rock-chick look.

2

Flat-chested

This dress is perfect for the flat-chested among us – the ruffles on the front will create a bit of volume and the busy print attracts the eye to the heart motif. Add a long chain necklace for another layer of interest and finish with knee-high boots for a 70s take on the look.

3

Petite

Petites can afford to opt for shorter lengths which show off your legs and create a longer silhouette, but then we like to cover up the rest for a chicer look. We love this knit dress, which will be a versatile everyday staple in your wardrobe. Keep it casual with trainers or add a trench to smarten it up.

4

Tall

If there’s one style that all tall women can wear, whatever their body shape, it’s a billowy maxi dress. We love this white chiffon number – wear in the winter paired with a fur gilet and flat riding boots, or in the summer with tan sandals.
