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…
Have you been tempted by statement sleeves this season?
