Opt for arm coverage.
It is absolutely possible to cover your arms and remain tasteful, elegant and on trend.
Choose long or 3/4 length sleeves that offer you coverage at your comfort level, and seek out luxe fabrics and detailing - like illusion lace, subtle sequins, or shimmering opalescence - that elevate even a simple formal dress or evening separates piece into a sophisticated statement. 
Consider an evening dress style that incorporates a shawl or includes a stunning jacket, to give yourself the option to add drama to your look.
Do not take the plunge.
Turn heads with a neckline that adds interest while remaining modest. 
Explore a sweetheart cut or an evening gown silhouette that features layers of translucent and opaque fabrics for an exquisite and polished finish.
Play with hem length.
Experiment with different formal dress hemlines to add glamour or to focus on movement and ease. 
Stay at knee length for more casual comfort and try tea length and floor lengths to achieve refinement while flattering your favorite figure attributes.
Pair it with a pant.
Well-fitting dressy pants can be a great alternative to an evening skirt or formal dress.
Some beautifully meld tailoring with comfort and include options like elastic waistbands.
There's no need to stick to the classics, either. 
Try a tulip hem or a fly-away or go for a clean evening pants silhouette in chiffon or stretch crepe.
There are endless possibilities to pair with evening separates that fit the occasion or your mood.
With so many evening wear choices that offer just the right amount of comfort and coverage, you're guaranteed to be on the best dressed list for years to come.
