With so many new-season dresses to choose from, we anticipate our obsession with effortlessly chic throw-on frocks will continue well into the winter months. That said, the easiest way to justify this purchase is to opt for a long-sleeved dress—be it knitted, cotton, sequinned or silk. You can pair one with tights and boots to keep you covered when the temperatures begin to drop or wear it with strappy sandals while it's still warm outside. Whether you're after an evening dress for a major event or are looking for a great shirtdress that's useful for work and the beach, we've got you covered. Long-sleeved dresses have been reworked to align with all of the major autumn/winter 2018 trends. Our favourite varieties this season are ultra-eccentric ones covered in prints as well as knitted minimalistic iterations. Keep scrolling to shop our picks.
