While every celebs are trying to stand out on the red carpet with a pop of color, furry texture, or barely-there none of them caught my attention. In my opinion, what the stars wore to the pre-premiere cocktail casual event at the Cannes are just as gorg. Not to mention, the semi-formal attire is an appropriate look that's easy to wear.
The dress trend that's feminine, elegant and casual is none other than a long sleeved frock with short hemlines. Think Kate-middleton dress - modesty from top to bottom. It's a versatile dress that works with nearly any silhouette.

For a dressy event look at Emma Stone and Diane Kruger for inspiration. Emma Stone's black lace sleeve dress with ruffle skirt detail is something you would wear to a musical or symphony concert. Diane Kruger's Dolce & Gabbana dress with rose sequin design is extremely chic and would be perfect for a spring/summer wedding ceremony attire.
If you're hitting the dance floor Charlize Theron and Amy Poehler got the right ensemble for you. I just realized strappy heels is also a popular trend among the stars.
After all the fashion inspiration from Cannes, you're probably ready to slip on this trend. Here are some long sleeve dress RTW pieces you can actually wear to work and beyond.
