Good morning everyone, today’s post is about how to style the maxi long sleeve knit dress. I usually go for a midi or a mini knit dress, so I thought I would try a maxi instead. The long sleeve knit dress was spearheaded by Jacquemus last year and was seen on bloggers, street stylers, influencer and of course on the high streets too.
It is the perfect time of year to try the maxi long sleeve knit dress. Depending on where you are you can either layer your dress up or leave it minimal like I have done here.
So I am somewhat excited about wearing this long sleeve maxi knit dress. Initially I didn’t think I was going to get to wear it at all over here in Dubai, but as it is much cooler at the moment I took the opportunity to do so. This long sleeve maxi knit is from Zara, it comes in a high neck and is just super soft and comfy. Now I have gone for a minimal look here but if I was in a much colder environment I would layer this up by throwing a white teddy coat draped over my shoulders. Then I would add some knee high boots in either tan or brown which I would match in colour with a belt to cinch in my waist.
Speaking of shoes here I have teamed my white long sleeve maxi with my white Superga sneakers/trainers. These make the look more casual and dressed down, I just wanted everything to look simple yet sleek.
Moving onto my bag and I opted for my basket bag from Loewe, basket carryall bags are the perfect get-away staple. The bag is fresh, light and versatile with a rustic feel and a market vibe, ideal for strolling around in style from the beach to the city. This hand-woven basket bag has been crafted from palm leaves and has been enriched with high-end classic calfskin details. It works beautifully here with my long sleeve maxi knit dress.
On to my sunglasses and staying with white I grabbed my Illesteva pair. This white Isabella sunglass features a cat-eye frame, tinted lenses and a brand logo on the internal arms. My pair is sold out but you can find the black version HERE.
Finally for the finishing touches and completing my look I am wearing my M.A.C. lipstick in the shade Topped With brandy. My current go to nude which I wear with my Chanel Coco Rouge lipstick in the shade Adrienne. I tend to wear this just at the centre of my lips to add some dimension.
