Dresses with long sleeves
Before you begin your story, you want to slightly deviate from the standard introduction and share with you some interesting facts about dresses with long sleeves and the two most expensive dresses in the world. Then we, of course, will talk about what kind of dresses with long sleeves are and with what they are best combined.
So, the first fact will be devoted to the Cannes Film Festival 2011. Or rather, the beautiful guests of the film festival, who were wearing long sleeved dresses. According to the media, it was 2011 that was a record year for the number of dresses with long sleeves. Heroes of the red carpet flaunted in dresses of different types, styles and lengths. But they were united only by one, but a significant detail of the dress – a long sleeve. Until now, fashion critics can not understand and understand why this particular year was the year of the “long sleeves”. Long sleeve dresses were chosen by actresses Ashwaraya Paradise, Jane Fonda, Uma Thurman, Sarah Jessica Parker and many others.
The second fact will be dedicated to the actress, style icon – Audrey Hepburn. Probably, it is not a secret to anyone that Audrey Hepburn was the muse of the great couturier, Hubert Zivanshi. All the outfits of the actress, for roles in the movies and in life, are the work of Givenchy. We all remember the elegant black dress in the floor from the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany”. And her outfits from the films “Funny Face”, “Sabrina” and “How to Steal a Million” – did not leave many indifferent. The wedding dress of the actress, which maestro Zivanshi sewed to her, did not go unnoticed either. The wedding dress of the actress was very unusual, and at that time created a real sensation. Audrey Hepburn was wearing a straight dress with long sleeves. The dress was pale pink and just above the knee. At that time, they didn’t allow themselves to simply wear such a dress, let alone go under it. But the fact remains. Audrey Hepburn became a pioneer and introduced fashion into simplicity and elegance.
One of the most expensive and famous dresses in the world are two dresses: one belonged to Marilyn Monroe, the second – Audrey Hepburn. I think you guessed about exactly which dresses in question. World famous white flying dress Marilyn Monroe, from the film “Seven Years of Desire.” And no less well-known black long dress Audrey Hepburn, from the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany.” Marilyn Monroe’s playful dress is priced at $ 3 million, but not for sale. But the legendary black dress Audrey Hepburn in 2006 at an auction fell off with a hammer for 807 thousand dollars.
When we talk about dresses, the first thing that comes to mind is a little black dress. This dress does not have to be a long sleeve. But I can not ignore the creation of the legendary Coco Chanel. One can talk endlessly about the advantages and advantages of a little black dress. I can only say one thing: a little black dress should be in the wardrobe of a modern woman. This is a must have, which has remained popular and relevant for many years in a row.
Dresses with long sleeves are worn at any time of the year. Depending on the season, only the fabric and the texture of the dress change. For autumn and winter dresses with long sleeves characteristic warmth and comfort. Therefore, we prefer knitted woolen dresses, tweed, and warm knit dresses. In the spring and summer, we turn to flying dresses made of silk, cotton and light denim.
Dresses with long sleeves come in completely different shapes, styles and lengths. Tulip dress, shirt dress, trapeze dress, straight dress – they can all be long sleeved and have different lengths. Short or long, casual or weekend – this in no way affects the length of the sleeve. When choosing a dress with a long sleeve, carefully watch that the sleeve is not too long for you or, conversely, short. Also pay attention to how exactly the dress is – on the figure or not. Choose only those styles of dresses that emphasize your figure.
The style of the sleeves of the dress does not remain without attention either. The long sleeve of a dress happens a different cut and a style. Straight sleeves style, flashlight sleeves, bell sleeves, bat sleeves, raglan sleeves and deflated sleeves. All these styles look great on dresses with long sleeves. Especially gently look long sleeves made of silk and chiffon fabric.
