An outfit for a snazzy charity event with long sleeves. HELP!

I'm currently searching for the perfect outfit to wear to an event mid July. It's a big charity event in Cheshire, however I'd like something with full length sleeves and to reach my ankle. Been looking at maxi dresses (don't think I can pull them off) floaty jumpsuits, and wide leg trousers with tops. But nothing standing out for me. Budget is around £200. I usually shop at Cos/Zara/monki/&a Other Stories etc. I LOVE Cos, but couldn't pull off a full head to toe number of there's, owing to the fact I'm not a size 8 and 5,10!

I'm 5ft5 and a size 12. I've got ginger hair and usually wear a red lipstick, and looking for either something simple or something statement!

PLEASE HELP! Feel like I've trawled the entire internet!

It's a maxi I know but colour would be great with ginger hair://www.theoutnet.com/en-GB/Shop/Product/Saloni/Mary-flocked-chiffon-gown/728894??

Have you looked at frock and frill?

@DandelionAndBedrock never heard of them before - trawling their website now! Thank you!

@aniceearlynight that is glorious. Totally my style and £2 under budget - are you an actual stylist?!

Aw you are so nice Redrobin. Not a stylist but quite good at shopping sometimes (years of practice!). Hope you find something great to wear.
