Dress Du Jour

Bodycon gets long sleeves and an ultra-short hemline for the holidays.
Dress Du Jour Bodycon gets long sleeves and an ultra-short hemline for the holidays.

What's short, long and tight all over? It may sound like a naughty Kris Kringle gift, but the style set would know that we're talking about this season's dress du jour - the long-sleeved, bodycon mini dress.

A spin-off of the bodycon phenomenon that also spawned bandage dresses and skirts, this hot trend takes advantage of the cooler Christmas weather by covering up the arms and hiking up the hemline for a subtly sexy look. Taking their cue from Balmain's sparkly options and Preen's sexy cutouts for fall this year, fashionistas are rocking the long-sleeved mini dress with sequins, lace, and sculpted shoulders.

If you've got legs up to here, let this week's ladies show you how to work the dress and show off those stems in pieces we picked out for you. Click on!
