This season, it’s all about statement sleeves. From bell-shaped and extra-long to balloon and cold-shoulder, attention grabbing sleeves are stealing all the spotlight. So, to make sure that you’re not left in the dark, we’ve rounded up the top 10 sleeves trends to invest in right now.
One of the key trends to come out of recent fashion weeks is bell sleeves. Fitted on the shoulder and flaring out wide toward the wrist, the bell sleeve is the same as it always was, yet totally different.
While bell sleeves look sleek and chic, bishop sleeves appear soft and feminine. Most commonly spotted on lovely dresses, bishop sleeves compliment the outfits to which they belong while remaining a standout feature in their own right.
Despite having a similar silhouette to bell sleeves, flounce sleeves tend to be slightly more subtle and feminine. The style is created by attaching a separate piece of circular-cut fabric to the sleeve. This creates a ruffle effect that gives flounce sleeves their flare.
To up the ante on flounce sleeves, consider trying statement-making, ruffle sleeves instead. These sleeves are loud, fun and attention-loving. They were spotted on the streets of the recent Spring/Summer 2017 fashion shows, and we haven’t been able to get them out of our heads since.
They may not be practical, but extra-long sleeves are totally in fashion at the moment. Appearing oversized and stretched out, these extra-long sleeves have made a cool “rough around the edges” statement for many fashion week outfits of late.
