Creating the right balance right between casual and formal attire for our little ladies can be tricky no matter what the special occasion is, but this is especially true when it’s cold outside.
While it may not be the time of year for sleeveless and strappy designs, this season is all about sleeves! Whether your princess has a festive party, wedding, christening, birthday party or a bar mitzvah event to attend, embrace long sleeves to keep her both warm and stylish.
Below are five of our favourite long sleeve dresses to wear this autumn and winter.
1. Fluted Sleeves
When it’s cold enough to dress in long-sleeves, it’s time to embrace the season’s colours. This wine birthday dress with a fit and flare silhouette is the perfect shade of red to wear at Christmas parties and events. We especially love the fluted sleeves as they’ll keep your little one warm while also adding a stylish flair. This dress also has a flower motif complete with gold accents and a luxe velvet detail to complement the bodice.
