Retro dresses with long sleeves
At Mondo Kaos we have a very large selection of vintage styles and retro dresses, so to make it easier for you to find exactly what you are looking for, we have divided our vintage style dresses into categories.
In this category you will find dresses in many different cuts, all of which have in common that they are dresses with long sleeves.
A long-sleeved dress can be great in the colder months, or perhaps for formal occasions, or at work. It could also be that you do not feel like showing arms. After all, we are all different, and some prefer to highlight other advantages. Therefore, we also have a category where you can search just for long-sleeved dresses for your needs.
By long-sleeved dresses, we mean everything that covers the upper arms comfortably, because it is our experience that this is what women most often ask for when they want a long-sleeved retro dress. The sleeves of the long-sleeved dresses can be elbow-length, ¾ long-sleeved or it can be long sleeves that go all the way down to the wrist. The long-sleeved dresses can have puff sleeves, they can end with cuffs or roll-ups, small details, or just simply, depending on the style of the dress in question.
When you search in the category long-sleeved dress, you will be sure to find a dress that reaches down over the upper arms or longer.
If, on the other hand, you want to search specifically for, for example, a long-sleeved swing dress, you can advantageously go to the category swing dresses, and head there as you will find here exclusively swing dresses.

Denmark's best selection of high-end Retro dresses
Granted. It is a bit charged and subjective when we claim that we have Denmark's best selection of high-end dresses in the retro style, but even though the announcement is subjective, it can easily be true anyway.
Whatever type you are, you should be able to find at least a dozen high end dresses that are just right for you! We have a really large selection, which contains great variety in terms of style, color, prints and price.
We even have a good selection of plus size retro dresses. We have all our dresses in minimum xl, most in 2xl but very many we also have in 3xl, 4xl and even 5xl. This is because our dress models are dressable for just about all sizes as well as shapes.

Why do we call our dresses "Vintage" & "Retro"?
As you may have noticed, we use both the terms 'vintage' and 'retro' for our dresses, but is there really a difference between a vintage and a retro dress?
It is actually there, however, there is not a clear definition, so we will here try to give ours.
Vintage refers to clothing produced in about the year 1920 and up to 1980 - this can be homemade or in small or large productions. Since our dresses are not produced during this time period, we describe the dresses as "vintage inspired", as that is exactly what they are. They are inspired by the fashion of the decades 1940, 1950 og 1960.
The term Retro came into being in the 1960s and refers to something from "the past" - and since our dresses are just inspired by the fashion from 1940, 1950 and 1960, we also describe them as Retro dresses.
Actually, there is the term "Repro", which is probably the term that best describes our dresses, as repro comes from "reproduced" - ie dresses that have been produced again.
However, we know that not many of our customers use the term Repro, but instead describe our dresses as "Retro dresses" or "Vintage dresses" and therefore we have chosen to do the same.
Are you looking for more than just a dress?
A retro dress can easily be combined with shoes with a modern look. In fact, something beautiful, exciting and interesting can actually emerge in the dynamics between the dress's stylish vintage style and a pair of brand new, modern shoes or stilettos.
However, it is also beautiful to walk the retro plank all the way out and wear retro clothes from head to toe. If this is your plan, you can find all types of retro clothing with us.
