Since a long-sleeve dress covers up a lot, you can get a little more creative with your coiff. "A braided ponytail doesn’t take away from the shape of the dress because it has more going on in the back than the front," says Cole. A half-up 'do is a no-no with this dress, though — Cole says it will compete with the dress since there's a lot going on up front.
"I love the mystery of a long sleeve," muses Rose. "I would accessorize this based on how form-fitting your outfit is. If you're going for a more bohemian belle, layer on the jewelry. If your look is more form-fitting and tight, go for large statement pieces. This is a great time to wear Wonder Woman bracelet cuffs."
