Long Sleeve Maxi Dresses To Kick Off Your Spring Wardrobe

Mar 19 2018by Kate Russell


The mornings are getting lighter and the evenings are staying a little sunnier for a little longer. This means spring is truly on the way and that means investing in some pre-emptive maxi dresses to kick off our modest spring collections.


Here at Modisme, we love to see the long sleeve maxi dresses online that start to nudge their way in around this time of year. It’s still a little chilly, so layer yours with a chunky knit or leather jacket and team with leather biker boots for a perfect, trans-seasonal look.


Here are some of our current favourites.


Keepsake The Label Dress | harrods.com | £225



This Keepsake The Label, floral maxi is feminine and flirty, incorporating both frills and a pretty, spring print. Perfect to be paired with a roll neck for extra coverage.


Ganni Maxi | Selfridges.com | £190


Polka dots are always on trend and this Ganni maxi dress in casual chiffon is the perfect look to take you from the office straight to a dinner with just a change of shoes. The wrap design is super flattering on all body shapes and the cropped length allows a statement shoe to steal the attention.


Borgo De Nor Dress | ounass.ae | £560


This Borgo De Nor maxi dress will certainly get you in the mood for summer. We’re obsessed with both the bright colour palette used and elegant, floral print. Worn beautifully with heels during the evening, you can toughen this look up instantly with a leather jacket and ankle boots.


L’agence Shirt Dress | ounass.ae | £480


Shirt dresses are eternally both useful and stylishly chic. This L’agence shirt dress features deep side splits and can be worn unbuttoned from the navel to the floor to team with simple jeans.


Preen By Thornton Bregazzi Dress | matchesfashion.com | £965


The relaxed, yet overtly polished shape of this Preen by Thornton Bregazzi dress allows styling to be equally relaxed. The cropped, above the ankle length lends itself perfectly to an ankle boot and an oversized, chunky knit thrown over the top would pair elegantly.


Missoni Maxi Dress | Nordstrom.com | £2227.20


The patchwork print on this Missoni maxi dress is almost too good. The simple, elegant crew neck shape paired with the fabulous metallic thread running through the fabric ensures there’s nothing plain about this modest design. Keep accessories super simple with a classic-shaped leather jacket, just in case.


Wear your spring maxi early by styling it with either a chunky knit over the top, a simple roll neck underneath or throw an edgy biker jacket over your shoulders to keep out the cold. Until it’s time for espadrilles and sandals or even sneakers, team your dress with leather ankle boots to keep you stylish and cosy.


We love this super chunky, funnel neck knit by All Saints at Selfridges. The cropped and loose-fit style wont disrupt the flow of your maxi dress, but will keep you snug if the temperature drops. This leather jacket from The Row is chic, simple and perfectly feminine with collarless neckline and cinched waist detail. Finally, choose the perfect ankle boots that will transition through all seasons; these Alexander McQueen’s are simple with just enough added detail to make a statement.


The Row Leather Jacket | harrods.com | £2150

All Saints Jumper | Selfridges.com | £168

Alexander McQueen Boots | harrods.com | £1120
