Trend Report: Statement Sleeve


The statement sleeve is one of this season's biggest trends. Whether it be a trumpet, a ruffled or a balloon sleeve, a statement sleeve is easy to incorporate to an everyday outfit. While the exaggerated sleeves on the spring/summer 2017 catwalks featured huge ruffles and wide cuffs, the high street versions are much more wearable, providing a practical way to wear the trend.

I find statement sleeves an easy way to bring a little variety to your wardrobe, it’s flattering on virtually everyone, and it can be done as big or conservative as you would like to wear it.  They can add a unique feature to an otherwise basic outfit, and elevate something casual to something a little more interesting. An easy way to add a little drama to your sleeve is to opt for a trumpet sleeve, it adds a hint of fun to an otherwise pretty basic weekend top.

Whether it is a ruffle sleeve or a cutout sleeve, a statement sleeve is best worn with a simple bottom, which allows the sleeves to be the focus. 

Here are a few of my current favourites.

1.  Woolworths - Witchery Bell Sleeve Top R 359.00 
2.  Big Blue - Cara Bell Sleeve Top - Ivory R590.00
3.  Mango - Cropped Cotton-blend Sweater R849.00
4.  Next - Vero Moda Stripe Bell Sleeve Blouse R402.00
