With lots of events on the horizon, it’s always nice to have a few go-to dresses in your closet that you can wear for the holidays and beyond. It’s hard to find long sleeve dresses that aren’t sweater dresses, but right now Nordstrom has quite a few!
I styled two great options for fall/winter weddings, business casual work parties, bridal showers, etc. They would even work for church on Sunday with a different shoe.
Maggy London Floral Print Long Sleeve Faux Wrap Midi Dress (8) // Sam Edelman Kia Ankle Strap Sandals (8) // Kendra Scott Clove Multi-Strand Necklace // similar Kendra Scott hoops // similar gold minaudière
This Maggy London faux wrap midi dress features brushstroke blooms and a tulip skirt, and I love these vibrant colors this time of year. It’s a one-and-done way to get that tone-on-tone monochromatic look with shades of red that is so on trend right now.
The silky fabric feels really nice against the skin, and the long sleeves with two-button cuffs are such a pretty detail. I also appreciate the faux wrap styling with a zipper closure in the back, so you just slide it on and zip it up without having to futz with tying a wrap dress.
I love how the model is wearing a bright pink shoe to match the dress, but I went with a more subtle gold sandal. If it’s too cold for sandals where you live, you could definitely do a dressy pump. Or these d’Orsay pumps would work for a lower heeled version.
My second outfit is similar; I just swapped out the dresses. This one is a little further out of my comfort zone, as I don’t usually wear ruffles, but I think it works.

The color palette is really pretty for this time of year, and all winter long. It also has a faux wrap styling and long blouson sleeves, and I like how it ties off to the one side.
These Sam Edelman Kia Ankle Strap Sandals are my go-to for dressy looks. They’re comfortable to walk in, and I love the cylindrical heel. They also come in a bunch of other colors, and they run true to size.
As with the look above, I wore delicate gold jewelry and carried a gold minaudière to complete the look.
I also rounded up some more long sleeve floral dresses at Nordstrom, in case one you want some more options:
