HOW TO STYLE A MAXI LONG SLEEVE KNIT DRESS

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.

KNIT DRESS

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.

WHITE SNEAKERS/TRAINERS

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.

BASKET BAG

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.

WHITE SUNGLASSES

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.

FINISHING TOUCHES

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.

    Wow I would not think you would be able to wear a dress like that in Dubai either, it looks super warm. I am a big fan of winter white and this dress looks great on you. Love the minimalism great for pairing with fun accessories.

    That is a really nice dress, and I really like how it stands on its own. I think if I was into dresses that it the type of dress I would be into. I love how you styled everything together, and you look beautiful Lovely. 🙂

    What an awesome maxi dress! It looks so cosy and I like how you paired it with summery accessories! I actually don’t have any long sleeve maxi dresses, it’s not quite cold enough for them here in Brisbane, but I do have a few long sleeved shorter dresses that are staples! 🙂

    Hope that your week has been good and you have a nice weekend ahead of you! There’s a lot of smoke again around here but we are safe from the bushfires.

    I don’t think that I have ever seen a parachute dress to be honest, but I LOVE that color, and it looks so beautiful on you!
