Style Tips: Styling a Long Sleeve Dress

Yesterday I showed a bunch of long sleeved dresses and as promised, here are a few ways to style them.  I chose one dress in particular, but these are so general that they can be done with any dress.



Outfit 1 - Over a Button Up
This is so easy to do with a long sleeve dress (as long as it works with the neckline) and provides another layer for warmth.  You can very easily do looks 2, 3, and 4 with a white button up underneath as well.

Shop Outfit #1:
Shirt: Old Navy
Dress: Old Navy
Tights: Target
Necklace: J.Crew Factory
Shoes: Forever 21


Outfit 2 - With a Blazer
Go with a neutral blazer, or get playful with a colorful one.  I chose a sleeker bootie to streamline the look a little more.  Plus, a fun windowpane scarf!

Shop Outfit #2:
Dress: Old Navy
Blazer: Choies
Tights: Target
Shoes: DSW
Scarf: Forever 21


Outfit 3 - Under a Cardigan
I love the look of a dress with a thicker cardigan.  But, since all that drapey-ness needs an anchor I added a statement necklace.  If it needs more, add a thin belt to pull together the look.

Shop Outfit #3:
Dress: Old Navy
Cardigan: Old Navy
Tights: Target
Shoes: Forever 21
Necklace: J.Crew Factory


Outfit 4 - Under a Pullover
This is a great way to get mileage out of your dresses.  Wearing a pullover over them will make the dress function like a skirt.  People won't even know you're wearing the dress again, and they'll think you just have a new skirt.  ;)

I said earlier that you could add a white button up to any of these looks, but I think this one will look especially cute with one!

Shop Outfit #4:
Sweater: Target
Dress: Old Navy
Tights: Target
Shoes: H&M


Have a fantastic weekend!

  1. I have several long sleeve dresses and could never figure out how to style them correctly. I now realize that I didn't have the right shoes. I need to purchase a pair of booties!

  3. I ordered a couple long sleeved dresses from Old Navy recently - thanks for the styling tips! I wouldn't have thought to wear a collared shirt underneath. Genius. :)

  4. These are all such great ideas! I have recently become infatuated with my navy 3/4 sleeve ponte dress, and any one of these looks would definitely work with it. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. I just saw the sweater over a long sleeved dress and tried for Christmas. I love that it completely changed up the dress! Definitely doing that on again.
