Minidresses With Long Sleeves

If We Could Raid Alexa Chung's Closet, We'd Take This Dress


Every week, we bring you the best shoppable fashion and lifestyle stories from our partner Lifestyle Mirror. Today, we're sharing Taylor Davies's post about long-sleeved minidresses.

There's something inexplicably cool and sexy about a long-sleeved mini dress. And all it takes is one look at Alexa Chung to understand what we're talking about. It's all about the contrast of showing miles of leg and covering, well, everything else.

You can rock an ultra-flattering mini like this no matter your body type. Accent curves with a dress with a fit-flare skirt. Or embrace your boyish frame in a simple shift. The point is: You're free to embellish with great accessories like a statement necklace or earrings when your legs are on display and your arms covered.

Need another reason to love the long-sleeved mini? It's a year-round go-to party dress. The long sleeves make it seasonally appropriate in the winter with or without tights—just look at Gwyneth Paltrow's Valentino frock from the Golden Globes. From the Marc By Marc Jacobs shirtdress that reminds us of a chic Marcia Brady to the bodycon off-shoulder LBD from The Row, there's a cute mini dress to suit your style. Now put on a little Rod Stewart and get shopping. We're talking to you hot legs!
