The Look: Sleeves

3 Jan

With all the chatter about Nicole Richie’s long sleeve Marchesa gown, I decided to take a closer look at the sleeved gown. There is a lot of BAD out there, but there is also some gorgeous as you can see! A sleeved gown can be elegant and sexy if you pick carefully. A lace or sheer sleeve is usually your safest bet because it prevents it from looking too matronly or heavy. If you want to opt for a more solid sleeve, then make sure there is some other wow factor to the dress, such as a plunging neckline or sexy back like on Kate Hudson’s dress below. Many designers have shrugs that go across the best and down into sleeves, like with Ivanka Trump’s gown – then at the reception you can take it off. Any way you go, a sleeved gown can really make a statement for a fall or winter bride.
