Statement Sleeves

Stement Ruffle Sleeves

We love classic with a twist, don’t we? Lately shirts with a statement sleeve have been ticking all my boxes, from bell sleeves to ruffled sleeves, there’s something out there for everyone. This post by Who What Wear has a pretty comprehensive guide to this years’ top statement sleeves and is well worth a look. Since I am a mother of three and a typical day doesn’t include wafting around in fabulous sleeves, I have opted for the ‘diet’ version of statement sleeves that suits my lifestyle. Do have a look at my Pinterest board if you are looking for something more exciting.

I have chosen a ruffle/ fluted style sleeve from Mango, it’s practical and I’ve worn it with skinny jeans and trainers, red wedges and white jeans which feels very St Tropez! and with a denim skirt and leather sandals. So far so versatile.

I originally fell in love with this top from J Crew which was pretty much sold out online the moment it hit my Instagram feed but Warehouse has now swarmed in with a hybrid of both (see below).

ASOS has a pretty good selection of statement sleeve tops although the vibe is quite boho. Still, perfect for the summer. I’m tempted by this one…
