Wedding Season – Sleeved Up

Location: Vida Downtown – Dubai, UAE

For part 2 of ‘what to wear to a summer wedding’, I wanted to try something a little different. At first, it didn’t seem like a big deal but I noticed that long sleeved dresses don’t get as much love as they deserve.

When it comes to evening dresses, everyone quickly migrate towards the sleeveless, strapless and low cut pieces which isn’t bad but can be predictable. A long sleeved dress can look so demure and sexy without showing skin.

Thanks to Designer-24, I found this beautiful Christian Siriano dresses with fitted long sleeves. The sleeves balances out the length of the hem making it sophisticated and chic. A rule I always try to follow is to make sure my outfit is balanced.

I wanted to keep the look quite monotone as the dress is so beautiful, I didn’t want anything fighting it for attention. My silver Prada platforms were the perfect choice. I kept my accessories minimal with silver Dior Tribales earrings and turning my Chanel WOC into a clutch.

As for my hair, I made sure it was in a slick(ish) ponytail to balance {there it is again} the high neckline.

So below is a little edit of long sleeved dresses I think would look amazing for a summer wedding. Some of them can also be dressed down with flat for a daytime look.

Look out for the 3rd and last part of this feature coming right up!
