One Trend You Need in 2017 :: Long Sleeve Midi Dress

Saturday, February 04, 2017 Simone Foster 12 Comments


Hi everyone,

My favourite dress style that seems to work all year round ( in different textures) -  the Long Sleeve Midi dress, is the one dress style you should trend for 2017. A versatile dress style and a favourite amongst celebrities for 2017. this is the one look you need. Even Victoria Beckham was inspired trending this dress style for her SS2017 collections.


I found this midi rib dress during an H&M sale and the earthy Burgundy tone just had me at " hello".



To be honest, I picked up this dress whilst out shopping with my son. As everyone knows, kids hate being dragged around from store to store. So with the constant bugging " Mom, can you please hurry up....mom can you please hurry up....." I just grabbed this off the rack seeing it had such a " future" and without trying it for fit, just rung it up at the cashier. After all it did have a big red label on the price tag!!


Thinking I am used to H&M sizing chart what could go possibly wrong, and there I set off a happy gal. But when I got home, it somehow literally hung on me like a potato sack - a little wider at the neckline and certainly just a full straight on drape down the length of my body. A little disappointed at first, I badly wanted to style this dress and of course with money spent it just had to be worn ( at least once perhaps!). Love the sleeves which was a little flare at the cuffs. So ended up belting the dress and wearing it slightly off shoulder on one side and voila.... this is the look today.



An easy look to wear to work and perfect match with my Berry Red Ankle Booties and Goyard St. Louis. Threw on a coat for cooler mornings and evenings and wore it with High Cut Leather boots for colder days. Alternatively check out Victoria Beckham styling a similar rib dress from her collection below but layering with a striking coloured shirt underneath for cooler days.
