We’ve rounded up the best 10 long sleeve dresses online now that cost £30 or less.

When it's freezing outside it’s hard to know what to wear, especially in the evening. How do you feel and look glamourous when you’re wrapped up in tons of layers? The easiest way to update your wardrobe is with a long sleeve dress, one that you can wear now with knitwear and tailoring, and later in the year, when the weather thaws, by itself. Even better if you can find a great long sleeve dress on a budget! So we’ve rounded up the best 10 options under £30.

Long sleeve dress edit

Trying to decide what kind of long sleeve dress is best for you?

The most on-trend prints this season are polka dot, animal and florals, and these are good options if you’re tired of an all-black look. However if you’d rather go timeless, go for plain, minimalist style dresses. Darker colours such as navy and grey tend to work best.

Polka dot long sleee dresses

Polka dots are a classic and never date. Big or small polka dots both work, New Look has a great selection, we like this long sleeve dress with oversize ones and the ditty dots too.

Minimalist long sleeve dresses

How to style your long sleeve dress

Wear your long sleeve dress with thick opaque tights, a natty blazer and your favourite ankle or knee length boots to keep you toasty. If you’re someone who really feels the cold, size up and then add a lightweight merino wool roll neck underneath.

When the weather warms up, ditch the tights in favour for a pair of casual trainers, or if the weather allows sandals!
