Three basic long-sleeve dress styles are:

  1. Sheer Sleeves: Of course, this is quite sexy and youthful and makes you stand out by offering a modern look.
  2. Low Necklines, Short Hemlines: Low necklines and short hemlines are a fine contrast to a dress which may be considered bit modest and offers it a sense of balance.
  3. White and Colored: You can wear a white long-sleeved cocktail dress or a colored one. You just have to be careful with the accessories for both these which should be different. As white is not a bold color, you should pair it up with bold-colored makeup and accessories like bold lipstick, royal blue or black heels, red belt, and so on, while choosing a color for your long-sleeved cocktail dress, consider your personality which should reflect in the color, e.g. bold colors will make you noticed in a good sense and muted colors will cause a calming effect.
