I think the biggest reason that this look is making its' way back is the Royal Wedding. As much as we all love our strapless wedding gowns, that is not as formal a silhouette as sleeves are. And Kate must be completely proper in her dress that day which more than likely means sleeves. Given her fashion choices in the past, I don't see her going with the Leg of Mutton sleeves that Princess Diana rocked on her wedding day.
*Disclaimer - I love love love Princess Diana's dress! What girl didn't want that dress growing up?! But it is slightly dated...
Here are some of the fabulous dresses that were shown at Spring Market this past weekend!
