Hot Trend: Statement Sleeves

You’ll be turning heads for sure

Slay away in dramatic statement sleeves this season. Long gone are the times where statement sleeves were only suited for Diana Ross and princesses. Oversized, bell or ruffle sleeves will get you noticed for all the right reasons. This exciting trend is not only sexy and whimsical but will definitely make heads turn your way.

Cascading sleeves are a fresh way to make a daring, yet very stylish and bold, statement. There are multiple silhouettes, which can be worn very differently, but we love them all equally and cannot wait to rock this trend.

Here are various ways to wear these multiple silhouettes.

1. Bell sleeve

A bell sleeve gives a playful touch to any ensemble. The shorter bell sleeve featured here gives this simple black coat a modern feel that is sophisticated, flirty and on-trend.



Irina Lakicevic rocks a dramatic bell sleeve blouse and tassled leather bag to perfectly pull off a beautiful casual look.



2. Ruffled sleeve

This is a more sophisticated and minimal take on the ruffled sleeve. Olivia Palermo achieved the right balance between the volume of the jersey and effortlessness of the skirt. She polished off the look with a tan heel and belt.

Harper and Harley’s Sara Donaldson opts for a more office-appropriate ruffled sleeve look. This is a perfect outfit idea if you’re feeling uninspired by your work wardrobe.



3. Oversized sleeve

A fun, easy and uncomplicated look. Leandra Medine from Man Repeller chose to rock denim shorts with her oversized bubble sleeve. Perfs for the summer!



Need an ideal special-occasion look? Look no further. Pair an oversized sleeve with a simple bottom,  like this printed midi-skirt. Dramatic yet classy.
