Summer Dresses with Sleeves
Free-spirited ladies push through the crowd of shoppers, laughing and carrying delicate shopping bags. Their dresses look like they’re made of sugar and spice and everything nice – vintage and defined. While others are wearing shorts and fanning themselves, these ladies are cool and calm with sheer sleeves and feminine romantic allure. Summer dresses with sleeves are deceptively light and airy, creating the perfect cool combo.
Rose-Colored Dresses: In love of all things rose-colored, summer dresses with sleeves wouldn’t be complete without this summer tone. In traditional Nataya style, this dress gives poise and vintage flair to every lady with a modernized waistline and delicate rosettes. Ideal for weddings (your own or as a guest), afternoon picnics, bridal showers and engagement pictures.
Blue Babes: If you missed our blog on blue bridesmaid dresses, we’ll tell you again – we love our blue pastels! Made from chiffon and silk, you’ll want to wear it every day of the season. Summer dresses with sleeves certainly don’t need to be “fuddy duddy” or even boxy. Fitted sleeves and layered skirts create their own fanned effect to keep a lady cool. The Blue Pampered Doll Dress is especially appealing with off-the shoulder style. Look for this design when you’re searching for summer dresses with sleeves and you’ll be seductive and sweet at the same time.
Titanic Gowns: The titanic-era gown has always been a favorite of ours. This new titanic dress is fitted slightly at the waist and complete with sheer overlay. Summer dresses with sleeves, contrary to popular belief, do not need to be modern. An absolute favorite for mothers of the bride, vintage bride weddings, and Downton Abbey watchers, this is one of our favorite new old-time designs.
Gothic Summer Love: In case you thought we forgot about Jane Austen, we didn’t. Reminiscent of the lovely reaching green moors and afternoon tea in Suffolk, the empire-waist romance of the Gothic era is complete. Fancy enough for weddings, formal tea parties and brunch but with a comfortable and easygoing air, take this style to your next event.
Lady in Gold: While the sun shines brightly in the summer months, the metallic and shimmering threads of gold are ideal for summer dresses with sleeves. To wear gold in the daytime, focus on elements of the clor rather than a modernized sheen of metallic fabric. Light ivory or white go well with elements of gold. They will add a defined depth that captures the light and is ideal for afternoon formal events or engagement photos. Also great for an impromptu elopement, second wedding, or an elite brunch engagement, we can’t get enough of this style.
The sun can be harsh in the summer months. Instead of dressing down, dress up! With the right elements, summer dresses with sleeves smooth your arms and waist while still keep you cool and comfortable. Feeling fancy in the latest vintage inspiration, you won’t so easily say no to summer engagements. You’ll know just what to wear.
