The Sleeved Maxi

I went into shopping beast mode when I saw this dress at Zara. My eyes landed on it, and within seconds I was sprinting to the fitting room, sleeved maxi in hand. The Victorian vibe and pleated texture are everything. A true standout in a store always brimming with amazing things.

Don’t shy away from a sleeved maxi in fear of looking too “fancy”. They’re great for holiday parties, yes, but they can be toned down during winter for work, dinner or drinks with a faux-fur vest, a leather jacket, or a slouchy cropped sweater thrown on top with casual ankle boots (I suggest my favorite pair by Dune London—they run true-to-size).
