22 Long-Sleeve Dresses To Wear All Weekend

It's official: Long-sleeve dresses are everything and more in L.A. right now. We're not speaking of any one style in particular. Take, for example, the Twiggy-influenced mod mini long-sleeve dress, which pairs perfectly with retro tennis shoes for a "Yes, I always dress this cute for coffee" coffee date. No need to take it off after the sun goes down; instead, test it out with a cool pair of Chelsea boots, and voila! — you're ready for a night of music at the Greek Theatre. There's nothing we love more than a good multi-use piece we can live in all weekend. After all, this is L.A.: Who wants to change outfits mid-day?
Of course, we haven't forgotten about the equally versatile, bohemian, long-sleeve muumuus, à la Mary-Kate. Or, toasty turtleneck sweater dresses that have long winter walks along Malibu's beaches written all over them. From striped to slouchy, brightly patterned to pale, vintage-inspired to modern and fresh, the long-sleeve dress can do no wrong at the moment — at least in our eyes. Ahead, we've rounded up 22 of the best we could find. And, yes, we want them all, desperately.
