+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: June 12

Whether you need to dress appropriately for your office, or you just aren’t comfortable going sleeveless, cap-sleeve dresses are a great choice.  Here are a few to keep your shoulders covered while maintaining a summery look.

4.collective Cap Sleeve Dress ($285)

(I honestly can’t tell you if this dress is long enough for work.  The picture says no, but the measurement of 35.5″ long says yes. It’s difficult to account for the height of the model.)

Hill Staffer


Calvin Klein Cap Sleeve Dress ($128)

This one is my favorite.

Evan Piccone Cap Sleeve Dress ($69)

Plus-size? This blue dress is a bit more of a weekend dress, but it’s lovely.  Petite? This double-weave cap sleeve dress has a really unique shape.

    Great post! Cap sleeves are perfect for the summer heat. They’re just this side of sleeveless so they work in the office. And the bright yellow is very cute!

    I own the 4. collective dress. I am under 5′ 2″ and and a 0 is the perfect length. Not too short, not too matronly. The neckline is above my collarbone though and isn’t the most comfortable.

    Just bought the white one– thanks! I think I need a necklace for it.
