If there’s one trend you’re going to associate with 2017, it’s the statement sleeve. And we’re not just talking shoulders – ohh no. From bell-bottom denim jackets, to bishop sleeved blouses, and bow-laced wrists… your future Facebook memories will thank you.
10 reasons to believe in the sleeve
By Elizabeth Odey, 16 April 2017
1. For classic days
Forget bell-bottom jeans – 2017 is all about the bell-bottom sleeve. But still made from jean. We’re on board.
2. For chilly days
When mid-winter hits = commit to the knit. Keep the trend rolling through snuggle season with this wrist-bow wonder.
3. For boss-lady days
This silky shirt is an easy way to inject a little new-season goodness into your 9-5. Water cooler compliments, guaranteed.
4. For eating-out days
The messy-girl solution to statement sleeves? Two words: Black mesh. You can thank us later.
5. For sunny days
The cold-shoulder crushing continues (and we’re quietly stoked). Puff up your life, and slip into this.
6. For trendy days
What happens when you combine two of the season’s hottest trends into one sweet style? This gingham, frilled sleeve dress, that’s what.
7. For serious days
Is it a shirt? Is it a jacket? Whatever way you look at it, it looks damn good. Utilitarian styling + a chunky bow = sleeve perfection.
8. For big-occasion days
Places to go, people to see, photos to post? This jacquard jacket is your perfect plus-one.
9. For minimal days
If you’re a no-frills kinda gal, this deep blue dream has your name all over it. A subtle ruffle sleeve is minimal fuss, maximum potential.
10. For lazy days
So your Sunday sofa sessions just got stylish. Thoughts? Well, if this bell-sleeved sweat is involved, then we don’t mind one bit.
