trend watch: LONG SLEEVE PARTY DRESS

A long sleeve party dress is the perfect addition to any winter wardrobe and since we've got a few cold months left ahead of us here are some fun long sleeve dress ideas...


Amber Heard, Olivia Munn, and Paris Hilton were all spotted looking sleek and fabulous in simple long sleeve dresses.  This elegant look is understated and can easily be dressed up or dressed down.


Right now on Badjoan.com we have the Long Sleeve Basic Dress by Lizzie Parker.  This simple piece is a great addition to your wardrobe!  You can wear it dressed up with heels and fun jewelry, casual with flats, warm it up with tights and boots, or layer it under a vest or sweater!  This dress normally retails for $98 but we have it on sale right now for only $42!  Plus it is available in Red, Grey, Brown, and Navy.

Here are a couple easy outfit ideas...


Paris Hilton kept accessories to a minimum by choosing just one large, fun ring!  This is a great way to draw attention to one stand out item.

Here is how to put together this look:
- Long Sleeve Basic Dress by Lizzie Parker - Retail $98 / Sale $42
- Antique Shield Ring by Rich in Friendship - Retail $50 / Sale $12
- Daisy Wheel Heels by Seychelles - $95



Olivia Munn also stuck to simple accessories with some gold stacked bracelets that she layered over the long sleeves.

Here is how you can put together this look:
- Long Sleeve Basic Dress by Lizzie Parker - Retail  $98 / Sale $42
- Cleopatra Bracelet Set by Rich in Friendship - Retail $45 / Sale $14
- Ritzzz Heel by Dollhouse - Retail $64 / Sale $38.99

So cute, I like the first one, it reminds me to the one Diane Kruger wore to the MET gala (although that one was white).
Have fun tomorrow night!

Beautiful looks (but definitely not one I could pull of without a crapload of spanx). It is definitely a chic look.

I love the idea of a long-sleeve party dress. It especially makes sense in places where it gets cold!
