The classic elegance of a sleeved wedding dress has remained a timeless touch in wedding gown designs for generations. But are sleeved dresses a modern-trendy look of today? The answer is yes! And they are returning in 2023 with more extravagance than ever before.
Sleeves, particularly long sleeves, might seem more conservative, but countless wedding designers have now proved that these can be equally sexy, fashionable and on-trend.
In addition, sleeves are suitable for every body type and style. And, if you want to show off a bit of skin or you’re worried about the summer heat, then an off-the-shoulder silhouette or removable sleeve style may be the answer.
