SLEEVE IT TO ME
You better be-sleeve it (hahaha sorry we couldn’t help it) when we say that statement sleeves should be your new best friend.
We are seeing them everywhere and on everyone - our favourite It Girls, street style bloggers, influencers, celebs and models are all sporting this chic look - and for good reason. We love statement sleeves because they take an ordinary outfit to the next level, are super flattering on everyone and look phenomenal at any age.
There are bell sleeves, flare sleeves, fringe sleeves, batwing sleeves, frill sleeves, lantern sleeves, bishop sleeves and pagoda sleeves – and that’s just to name a few. Phew, who knew there were so many different types of sleeves?! Because there are so many ways to wear sleeves, we’ve rounded up our favourite styles based on dresses, tops and jumpers.
The simplest of dresses can be jazzed up instantly with a statement sleeve. We know how hard it is to find dresses that you can wear to work but that aren't, you know... boring. Sleeves are the perfect way to stay nine to five appropriate but be chic enough to stand out. And because they have that wow factor you can easily transition from desk to drinks and dinner without needing to change your outfit!
When a top has a statement sleeve, it takes it from a ‘meh top’ to a top-notch top. You know what we mean? When wearing a statement sleeve on top, we always wear a more structured piece on the bottom (e.g. skinny jeans) so we don’t end up getting lost in a sea of fabric.
Everyone has a collection of their favourite cosy knit jumpers for winter, but they can all start looking very similar, very quickly. Stand out from the crowd with a knit jumper with a statement sleeve. Jump to it because it’ll keep you super warm and super stylish at the same time!
