Insomniac Sale Picks: Dresses with Sleeves

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Ria requested a few picks for dresses with sleeves, so here we go:

karen kane wrap top pleated dress

Wrap Top Pleated Dress – was $108, now $39.95

The wrap is faux and hits fairly high, which is great if you’d prefer not to show cleavage or have a bust that doesn’t fill out traditional wraps. The tulip-shaped skirt is vented for easy movement, and the stretchy rayon is fluid and comfy. Available in sizes XS- XL. Also available in black in 0X and 1X.


Anouk Dress – was $96.20 to $133.20, now $81.77 to $113.22

I adore the details on this dress, from the graceful V neckline to the row of buttons to the tie-back self-belt. It’s got a slightly vintage feel, but could be updated quickly with a blazer and boots. Available in this gray print, as well as navy and green versions of the same print in US sizes 2 – 18. Size availability varies by color. (This printed dress has a similar shape and is available in 4X.)


Ponte Zip-Back Dress – was $98, now $58.80
with code BRSAVE40

Long-sleeved sheath styles are tagged as hot for the season, but there have been relatively few filtering through the malls. This ponte sheath is a great option, however, with full sleeves and a classic cut. Available in sizes 0 – 16 in navy, hot pink, black, and winter white. Size availability varies by color. Also in petite and tall. (This long-sleeved sheath comes in sizes 14W – 24W.)

michael kors logo pin wrap dress

MICHAEL Michael Kors Wrap Dress with Logo Pin – was $130, now $104.99

I don’t usually go in for branded flourishes, but this wrap dress is just too fabulous to pass up. Especially since the pin is teensy. The hemline may be high on some – 40″ length – but will work beautifully with tights for fall and winter. Available in 1X – 3X in this print, and 1X- 3X in red. (Also in XS- XL in red, teal, black, and brown at $120.)

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for dresses with sleeves:

  1. Land’s End – Loads of classic options in 1/2, 3/4, and full sleeves. Great plus size options, too!
  2. Modcloth – Mini, midi, and maxi styles with 3/4 and long sleeves, including this chevron/stripe beauty.
  3. Karen Kane – One of my favorite lines of all time, Karen Kane consistently stocks dresses with sleeves in standard and plus sizes.
  4. Boden – Bless this British line, they always seem to stock a few sleeved frocks. I’m lusting after this fit-and-flare.
  5. Nordstrom – Never forget Nordstrom for dresses with sleeves! One of the only vendors that calls out 3/4 and long-sleeved dress styles.
  6. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! It’ll be hit or miss, for sure, but considering how rare sleeved dresses seem to be, it’s worth a look. ( can help you locate stores near you.)

    Ugh, that Boden dress is pushing all my love-forties-style-day-dresses buttons. But they don’t appear to ship internationally:(

    Thank you! The BR dress is great. I also recently found some good options with sleeves at Talbots.
