Fashion team’s edit: the best dresses with sleeves

11 images

Hate showing your arms? We hear you!

 Thankfully clothing brands have picked up on one of our biggest style worries and are currently producing a wealth of beautiful and flattering long-sleeved dresses.

And the best bit… many of these dresses are perfect for all shapes and sizes. Better still, they’re not all about covering your shape in tonnes of material.

Everywhere we look there are hoards of great sleeved designs for every figure, so we can all finally have our pick of this season’s pretty trends and fill our wardrobes to bursting point.

Maybe it’s the Duchess of Cambridge effect (Catherine has often chosen long-sleeved dresses for public occasions). Or maybe designers have simply realised that dresses with sleeves, whether they’re evening dresses or special-occasion day dresses, make us feel so much more confident about our shape. Either way, we’re sold on this style.

Whatever your body shape or budget, there’s a long-sleeved dress for you that will flatter and impress. From printed shift dresses with sleeves to special occasion styles, there is a figure-fixing number for all in our round-up of the best high street and designer pieces available now.

& Other Stories dress with sleeves

Starting us off is this fabulous printed dress from & Other Stories (above and top).

Available for £110, this dress is perfect for your busy upcoming summer social calendar. Wear with some sliders for an evening out on holiday, add a cream blazer and gold heels for a wedding,  or wear now by layering a pink roll neck underneath and adding some ankle boots.
