I find maxi or midi dresses with sleeves hard to find. Each Spring I search for that one special dress that is easy to wear, versatile, adaptable and flattering. A challenging task as I like my dresses long so that they cover my legs. This year I have found one that totally fits the bill. A navy star print long-sleeved maxi dress from Hush.
A lot of other women also seem to think that it is a flattering and versatile dress. It is selling very fast with only a few sizes left. However it is worth saving the link in your browser and checking back at regular intervals, that is how I was able to buy mine. Trainers from FitFlop.
It felt lovely and very feminine putting on a dress after all these weeks of wearing joggers, jeans and trousers every day.
In the photo above I have added my Theory navy blazer which I have had since 2016 and have worn multiple times. It is expensive however it must rank as a classic as it is still in stock. A black clutch bag finishes the look. You could add a pair of low heeled pumps for a dressier occasion; if we ever get to attend one.
You can see me wearing the same blazer in 2018 with a pair of pattern trousers, which are also still in my wardrobe.
The same style dress in mid blue/bird print pattern. It is also selling fast but worth checking back for possible returns. I have searched other brands and come up with similar maxi and midi dresses which are shown at the bottom of this post.
I bought both dresses to try on and have decided to keep the navy colourway. The mid-blue was lovely however I felt that the navy version was more practical and co-ordinated better with the rest of the items in my wardrobe. I already have a blue cotton dress which I bought from Cos last year. With the addition of a chunky sweater I can transform my navy dress into a skirt for the winter.
MeandEm currently has a sale which includes some of their lovely feminine maxi dresses.
