You can never go wrong with long sleeve black dresses (or a long sleeve black dress), especially as we transition from winter to spring. We were treated to early spring in January, and low and behold winter decided to arrive in late February in sunny California. It’s been in the 20s (at night) and all I can think about is living in long sleeves as I’m curled up on the sofa in my Barefoot Dreams blanket! I recently purchased this gorgeous black drape front dress from Nordstrom and I can’t wait to wear it. This beautiful dress is so flattering on every body type and the best part is it is under $60 with free shipping. This is one dress I know I’ll wear throughout the year, especially since I can dress it up or down with pumps, slides, or my studded Golden Goose sneakers.

This season there are quite a few gorgeous long sleeve black dresses to choose from in a wide array of styles. I love that they’re so versatile and can be dressed up or down with jewelry, shoes, handbags, and accessories. They’re perfect for every occasion – from brunch with friends to wedding guest season, date night, vacations, birthday celebrations, anniversary parties, and more. A beautiful long sleeve mini dress will look fab with an embellished bag and pumps, that same dress will also look amazing with knee high boots and a clutch! 

Today, I’m excited to share 20 of the best long sleeve black dresses for every occasion! I hope you love them as much as I do.
