There are some great new sleeved frocks at Anthropologie that look fresh. Wear them with hosiery and boots, or over skinny jeans or cigarette pants as a tunic. Pop a jacket or coat (or both) over the top and Bob’s your uncle. 

  • Yael Dress: I loved the subtle pattern on this dress, which looks like a false plain. Formfitting but not clingy. Knitted, comfortable, and a good length.
  • Ondine Hanky Hem Shirtdress: A mauve and blush casual roomy high-low dress that's gorgeous with cognac accents. It's just fitted enough, and great with tall boots too.
  • Moonflower Dress: A structured '60s inspired shift that's fun to wear over skinny jeans.
  • Janie Swing Dress: Feminine and dressy in an on trend relaxed way. Great elbow-length sleeves.
  • Jersey Midi Dress: A fit-and-flare midi is beautifully '70s when worn with knee-high boots. It's fun with short booties for a "just flattering enough" effect.
  • Embroidered Peasant Dress: Boho fabness. Smocking looks quite fresh right now, and I like the red stitching. Can also be worn over black cigarette bottoms.
  • Modernity Silk Swing Dress: Mod, sack-like and dramatic. You have to be at peace with how the inside of the pattern shines through to the front from the back lower hem. Retro, graphic and modern.
  • Dori Cable Sweater Dress: The A-line silhouette on this sweater dress makes it quite flattering. Cozy and casual.
  • Homestead Shirtdress: I liked this dress best of all. The asymmetrical length drapes beautifully, and the flare swooshes in an elegant way when you stride. They also had me with the plaid.

It’s hard to find a casual dress with sleeves and sufficient hem length that doesn’t suck the living daylights out of you. Good job Anthroplogie for creating styles that fit the bill.
