Long sleeves are back in style!
Here are some of the stunning dresses that have recently captured the media, bringing a fresh focus back to the elegance of modest fashion. In these past months there has been quite the hype about the two recent royal weddings. Even a couple months past, these fairytale dreams come true are on everyone’s minds.
Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex after her wedding in England on March 19th wore a dress designed by Claire Waight Keller. The young director of the French fashion and perfume boutique, Givenchy, is known for her work with Hollywood and her simple, sophisticated, and elegant designs. Meghan Markle’s wedding dress lived up to the designer’s reputation. With long sleeves, a boat neckline, and no flourishes or extra furnishings in sight the dress was the epitome of elegance topped only by the joy in Meghan’s smile!
At Alessandra de Osma and Prince Christian’s wedding in Peru on March 16th Allessandra’s wedding dress also sported long sleeves and a high neckline. Designed by Jorge Vázquez, yet again a modest and graceful dress captured the attention of the fashion world.
But don’t despair…white is not just restricted to wedding wear. White dresses are really versatile. A white maxi dress is great for summer days and occasions that call for something a bit more elevated. Lace may be too formal but embroidered cotton eyelet takes the white long sleeve summer dress in a sweet, romantic yet refined direction; a great look to dress up or down.
Weddings were not the only popular events to have showcased renewed trends of modest fashion. The 2018 Oscar’s red carpet was rich with color, glam, style, and plenty of long dresses with long sleeves and modest taste. The red carpet never ceases to amaze with the sheer variety of styles and fashion on display, so here we have chosen a few favorites to highlight.
