It’s possible to experiment with colors, but allow us to remind you that black is the primary color of elegance. The sequins will ensure that the dress features a vintage theme, and the sleeves themselves are short.

If you prefer a long sleeve dress, don’t let that be a dealbreaker. Instead, add long satin gloves as an accessory, and you are good to go.

Those who prefer to experiment with colors could choose long flapper dresses in pale pink or cream.
