Short sleeve dresses should be a staple in every woman's wardrobe. They come in all sorts of fabrics, colors, and prints — there is something to fit every occasion.
When you're heading to the office, slip into a dress with a straight, knee-length skirt. You'll look professional and chic. Want to head out for a night on the town? Shop brands like Bisou Bisou and Nicole by Nicole Miller; you'll find short sleeve cocktail dresses that will turn heads. Other short sleeve dresses are perfect for wearing to church on Sunday or for a weekend brunch with your besties. Need something a little more formal? Choose an elegant evening gown.
Short sleeve dresses aren't limited to a specific season, either. In winter, snuggle into a comfy sweater dress. Add a belt to give your look a beautiful shape! In spring, choose something with a bright floral print, and add a lightweight cardigan or shrug for a touch of extra warmth. When summer rolls around, wear a short sleeve dress with comfy sandals or a fabulous pair of heels. In fall, choose a dress in one of the colors of the season—rich red or purple are great autumn picks!
"Short sleeve" means different things to different people. Something with a fitted sleeve that stops just above the elbow is modest but still stunning. Cap sleeves show a little more arm. Loose sleeves that flutter a little are flirty and are an alluring part of any warm weather ensemble.
You can also choose how much leg you want to show. A short sleeve mini dress shows off your figure and gives your appearance a modern edge. Something with a midi-length is appropriate for those times when you want to stay covered. An ankle-length dress with a slit in the side or a flared bottom is ideal for special occasions.
