What to Wear Wednesday: Easy Traditional Dress

In these in-between seasons it can become problematic to find the perfect dress for both the weather and season. Sleeveless dresses are better for warmer weather, and you may not want to layer a sweater over it. Colder weather dresses may be too thick, or look better with tights underneath. Enter the 3/4 sleeve dress – perfect for any and every occasion.

I recently got this 3/4 sleeve pointe dress from Land’s End and couldn’t be happier. I needed something to take me from winter to late spring and this does the job. It’s a thicker material while not being overly warm, which is perfect for the in-between weather. The sleeve length and silhouette make it very classy. I feel like this is definitely that “1960’s first lady” style I love. Overall, it’s very lady like and appropriate for any age.

I also love that this dress can be worn to so many places and occasions. It can easily be dressed down with a silk scarf and flats, or dressed up with pearls and heels. Everyone needs a dress that’s this easy to grab when you’re unsure what to wear. I wore this to church this past Sunday, but I’d wear it to a wedding at this time of year.

The above dresses are all ones I’d consider both transitional and versatile. That sleeve length on a dress is really something that should be in everyone’s closet, especially if you live in a climate with unpredictable weather.

    After seeing your post I bought this dress in blue. I don’t know that it looks quite as lovely on me as it does on you but it is a really wonderful dress. Thanks for posting about it.
