We love a classy Stop Staring black dress, and one with sleeves is exactly what we want this time of year.
You can't have too many black dresses. Or too many Stop Staring dresses. Or too many black Stop Staring dresses!
An elegant dress with sleeves is not as easy to find as you think. This one combines a stretch fabric with wonderful a retro inspired silhouette, and the result is a fabulously flattering dress that is also surprisingly practical.
A boatneck and 3/4 length sleeve give the top half an effortless chic feeling, but the sweet and discreet satin bow on the left shoulder adds a dash of femininity without feeling silly. A tapered waist band panel sits high on the natural waist, and joins the pencil skirt. The skirt section has a smoothing central front panel, with subtle ruching down the side. This texture adds some softness to the clean lines of the dress, and also makes it a rather flattering shape as the panel acts as a smoother for the tummy. The higher waist on this dress, combined with the just below knee hemline, will elongate the body and make your legs look long.Yes, even if you aren't blessed with legs up to 'there' !
When your little black dress with sleeves works this well, it will force you to take a stern look at the rest of your wardrobe. You have been warned.
This Stop Staring dress runs true to size. Most ladies wear between two sizes, so with this fabric order the smaller for a more va-va-voom wiggly fit, or the larger if you find your size can fluctuate a lot.
This dress will suit all shapes, but pear shapes should snap this up immediately as the shoulders help to balance out your top and bottom halves!
