A long-sleeve floral dress is an essential piece of any transitional wardrobe — a fact recently reiterated by Helen Mirren on an evening stroll in Santa Monica. 

The actress was spotted looking elegant and comfortable in a blue long-sleeve dress covered in a playful white floral pattern, making a case for the versatility and convenience of the silhouette, especially as temperatures begin to cool. Walking hand-in-hand with her husband, Taylor Hackford, Mirren paired the dress with bright cherry red ballet flats and matching headband.

Though seemingly simple, the timeless impact of a long-sleeve floral dress in the fall can’t be underestimated. While the extra fabric on the arms brings the practicality of the changing season, the floral prints and designs embody the feeling of levity and softness that is the last days of the summer. 

Dress them up with a jean or leather jacket, or take a page out of Mirren’s book and play up the accessories — no matter how you style floral dresses, there are endless options for just about every style and budget out there. 

In preparation for life post-Labor Day, read on below for some of the best Helen Mirren-inspired long-sleeve dresses for fall, starting at just $26.
