Amazing dresses with sleeves

All of the spring dresses we've been featuring recently have had something in common (aside from being absolutely gorgeous, obviously). None of them have had any sleeves. Where are all of the nice dresses with sleeves hiding? We found them! All of them.


Zara are quickly becoming solely responsible for the sorry state of my bank balance. It's because of dresses like this lace number. Great sleeves, fabulous trim, and £49.99 seems very reasonable for what I'm dubbing your wedding fairy outfit.



Oooh, hello Mango. Now, the styling of this paisley dress needs a little work. That 90s sash needs to go (a tan leather belt would be much better). And those shoes, let's change those for these wedges. BUT, despite styling issues, this is a very lovely dress indeed.


Warehouse are making me very happy with this pleated dress. I promise it looks just as gorgeous from the front, but the back detail is fantastic. It's £65.


If you're a size 8, please buy this gorgeous People Tree dress. It's absolutely perfect. And it's in the sale so it's just £37.50. The red option is £30.



This might be the most perfect dress I've ever seen on ASOS, and it's only £42. If you've invited me to a wedding this year, expect me to be wearing this to all of them.


And this ruched midi dress might just come a close second. It's £38 and absolutely perfect for the stupid weather that no one can dress for successfully.


Time for something a little more colourful! I do love a bit of yellow. I can't wear it, but that doesn't stop me from coveting all things sunshine. This yellow Oasis sundress is £48. Mardy face model's own.


I love the bright orange streak in this silk navy dress. I do not love the price, French Connection. It's £145 so I'm going to have to watch your sale like a hawk.


This black mini dress is £30! That's more like it, FC. Take note, mango. This is how you do a sash.


Flamingos! ASOS, you're spoiling us. This pink-legged print dress is just £35.

Hooray! Warm arms! Seen any gorgeous sleeved dresses recently? Share with me, I want to lust over them all in an unseemly manner.

  1. I ordered this sleeved dress on Monday evening and I'm currently sat at my desk tapping my fingers waiting for the delivery man :)

  2. The blue flowery and black ASOS dresses are lovely! *sits on credit card*. Why don't more brands make dresses with sleeves? Such a no-brainer really...

    1. And only available in a size 8 now! Some of our DS shoppers are much less restrained than you, Gill!

      I still couldn't find a single nice dress with long sleeves. Cold wrists everywhere.

  4. The blue dress with flowers on asos? I bought it last week and am returning it! It's a very strange fit - and is actually a top and skirt attached together with buttons. And, sadly, it is nowhere near as vibrant - more a flat, dull navy. :(

    1. Awww, what a shame you didn't like it. They mention in the product description that it's got a buttoned waist, but it's a shame it's not as vibrant.

    1. Hope you find something in these options, Cara! ASOS can actually be searched by sleeve length - very handy!
