How To Wear the Statement Sleeve

Numerous fashion magazines and bloggers have said the number one trend for 2017 is the statement sleeve.  With the fascination of the cold shoulder sleeve and the bohemian look, designers have taken the humble sleeve and made it flared, flounced, ruffled, belled, elongated, embellished…every variety imaginable!  It is new, on-trend, exciting, and fresh!  Dresses and tops both sport lovely, romantic, and modern sleeves, making this season’s top trend a must have for every wardrobe!

Bell Sleeve

All the statement sleeves are very romantic and add drama to any outfit.  The voluminous bell sleeve provides a cool retro vibe to any wardrobe and will instantly update your look.  Bell sleeved dresses will pair equally well with sandals, wedges, or heels, while tops can adorn denim, white jeans, or flowy linen pants.

Flounce Sleeve

Flounce sleeves are similar to bell and ruffled sleeves.  They are created by attaching a separate piece of circular cut fabric to the sleeve.  This creates a ruffled affect that gives flounced sleeves their flare.  Small flounced sleeves are the perfect, casual, on-the-go tops.   Wear with jeans and low-heeled shoes for an elegant, everyday style.

Cold-Shoulder

We have definitely discussed this mega trend!  This is perfect for women who like to bare a little less skin.  Cold shoulders are modern and chic and have the benefit of being more practical than off-the-shoulder tops.  This style is gorgeous when paired with long, flowing silhouettes and of course your favorite denim.

Off- the-Shoulder

Trending for some time now, we are very familiar with this sexy look! The sleeves of this great style have scalloped edges, ruffles, pom-poms, bows, or a combination of the above!  Tops pair superbly with any style of denim, white jeans, or loose and flowy linen pants.

No matter how you decide to style your statement sleeve look it is a trend to embrace during the spring and summer season!
