Few things can be worn all year round, and of those things, we love long sleeve dresses the most, especially when they are beautiful, comfortable, and well-made! These pieces make getting ready for an important daytime or evening event a breeze, and they offer much-needed warmth in fall and winter. Here’s everything you need to know about long sleeve gowns – occasions to wear them, the trend, the best designers of gowns with sleeves, and more.
Best Styles and Occasions to Don Long Sleeve Dresses
We’ll tell you everything about the best long sleeve dress styles and occasions to wear them. But first, a few words about the trend. Silk and satin long sleeve dresses can be worn in spring and even in summer, but in fall, we’d recommend a warmer fabric like velvet, unless you want to drape a shawl over the dress. However, that would certainly take away from its appeal. The reason long-sleeve gowns are as popular as they are is that they’re a great way to keep looking fabulous despite the temperature drop. These dresses inject texture, vibrancy, and color in every different look.
Just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean you have to compromise on color! While bluesand purplesdo dominate fall palettes, colors like off-white, blush and turquoise are still very much in. Complex patterns on long-sleeve gowns are all the rage this fall and winter.
As for styles, the trend is surprisingly versatile. You can choose from one-shoulder long sleeve, bare midriff long sleeve, see-through sleeves, and more. No occasion is too formal to wear a long sleeve dress on – you will stun at a gala, ball, or any other red-carpet event. It’s equally acceptable to wear one at more casual events like prom or homecoming. However, do take the dress style into account.
Best Designers of Long Sleeve Gowns
New York Dress features collections from many great designers, but Terani, Portia and Scarlett, and Janique deserve special mention.
Many women have shone in breathtaking long sleeve gowns by Terani Couture and Portia and Scarlett. The latter has ravishing mermaid gowns with sweetheart necklines and long off-shoulder sleeves, perfect for any formal occasion. The mermaid silhouette draws attention to natural curves, flaring down from the knees into a sweep train. Another delightful design is that of the high-collared sheer mermaid gown with lace appliqué. No woman will be a wallflower in this revealing dress. The long, sheer sleeves augment a fitted high-collared high-back bodice. The dress flows from a mini skirt into a long sheer skirt. Astounding lace appliqué adds the final touch.
Janiqueis one of New York Dress’ latest arrivals, and long sleeve dresses are where the designer truly shines. Their lively, classy pieces with fitted bodices sculpt the torso with a bow accent neck and zippered back.
