Which is the best dress to wear is probably the first thing that many women wonder after receiving a wedding invitation. While there are a number of styles available in wedding wear, you might want to don a modest outfit. If funky and ultra modish is not the thing you would like to opt for, then why not checkout the variety in dresses with sleeves to wear to a wedding which are classy and elegant?
Dress Styles for Wedding Guests
The huge variety in wedding wear offers you dresses in almost any type. If you are attending a wedding and have decided to don a sober look instead of a modish look, then you have a lot of options to explore in decent dresses. To start with, let me tell you that dresses with sleeves instantly add a touch of elegance to the outfit. Apart from wedding wear outfits with sleeves, make sure that you browse through the various options in sleeve patterns. This can help you design a nice dress by choosing the best sleeve pattern and adding it to a sleeveless dress.
Go for a nice body fitting, full length gown with a side slit which is graced with a lovely short cap sleeves. If you have picked a lace gown then simply add lace cap sleeves without any lining, hence keeping them semi-transparent. Next pattern that you can consider opting for is a lovely strapless cocktail length dress in baby pink or sky blue. A knee skimming dress or a loose pleated dress, both can look great with a fitted bodice. Further, add a sheer jacket with ¾th sleeves. Adding a lace shrug with short sleeves to wear a sophisticated look is a good alternative to a simple jacket. Bolero jackets are also amongst the popular add-ons to such wedding dress. Jackets with sleeves can also be added to thin-strapped dress.
Another good pattern is a knee-length dress with full sleeves. Make sure you add semi-transparent sleeves and not the opaque ones. Two-piece dress with short balloon sleeves also look beautiful. If you want to give a fashionable touch to simple dress, go for ¾th sleeves with an off-shoulder pattern. Tea-length dress in organza look beautiful and give you a charming and 'out of the crowd' appearance! Flashy color like magenta, dark colors like brown, or a soft color like lemon yellow can be suitable for such an outfit.
Colors and fabrics must be chosen rightly so as to make the dress pattern look even more beautiful. Single colored, one-piece dress looks extremely sophisticated. A single colored piece can be spiced up by accessorizing it with colored trims and borders. A navy blue dress can be played up with white or silver piping for neckline, a bottom hem and sleeve hem line as well. You can add tiny ruffles to the hemline of the sleeves and the bottom hem.
When you add sleeved jackets to strapless or thin-strapped dresses, there's a lot of scope in experimenting with colors and combinations. A plain dress can be adorned with a sequined fancy jacket having long sleeves. Shrugs or jackets can be chosen in a shade darker than that of your outfit or a muted shade which is further made attractive with embellishments. Another idea is to have a self printed outfit with plain jacket. Many also opt for outfits with minimal prints which can be graced with plain jackets.
If you choose to wear a dress with a jacket, be careful while choosing the jewelry. In case you pick a single colored dress with sleeves, the same can be accessorized with diamond or pearl jewelry in the best way. A clutch bag and suitable pair of footwear is all that you require to finish this classy look!
