Style over 50 : Some of the best red dresses with sleeves for stylish women over 50 | Fab after Fifty

Style Picks by Ceri Wheeldon

Red is the colour associated with love and romance. As we approach Valentine’s Day I thought I would highlight a few of the red dresses available currently – although I have to admit that I struggled to find many that I liked – and when I added sleeves into the mix it became even harder.

A lot of the dresses this season suggest more ‘little house on the prairie’  than ‘Fab after Fifty’.

When I added sleeves into the mix it became even harder!

During our 28 day Lockdown challenge we talked about the psychology of wearing red – it doesn’t have to be reserved just for Valentine’s Day.  I used to wear red a lot when I was a headhunter – in fact  I signed some of my biggest deals when wearing a red suit – somehow wearing  the colour red instils confidence in me. If you have an important meeting or call to make add a pop of red and see how it makes you feel.


If only there was a wedding to go to! I think this dress is perfect for a spring wedding. It is vibrant, has sleeves, and just screams ‘chic’.  The sleeves are a flattering length-  they draw the eye to the waist with the effect of visually slimming the hips with a lovely ‘tulip’ finish. Currently in the sale at John Lewis

This is a fabulous print – who can resist the hearts? A great sleeve length (covers those bingo wings) , and a midi length a-line skirt. Fun and stylish this a winner. Currently reduced to £90 at Closet London.

Another Gina Bacconi dress – this one has full length sleeves and a dramatic asymmetric hem. Again  it’s in the sale at John Lewis.

I couldn’t resist sharing this dress from Ghost – very ‘ Duchess of Cambridge’ in style. The white collar is a flattering addition as it helps to ‘lift’ the area around the face – think of it as a mini light ring for selfies! Again available from John Lewis

This dramatic poinsetta red £225 ghost dress is  not sleeveless but the boat neckline provides a little extra coverage so that you feel less exposed. I loved the shape of the back! Ghost is available from John Lewis.
