Statement sleeves are BIG for spring.
Words by Amy Lewis
When it comes to Spring 2018 fashion trends, we can’t wait to get started. But if you’ve been holding off for the cold weather to pass, we’ve found an incredible new micro-trend you can start wearing right away.
Statement sleeves. Or more specifically, puffy statement sleeves.
Fashion bloggers and Instagrammers are all over it already, and if you love a classic white shirt, you’re bound to love it too.
To nail the trend, the key is to marry a white shirt or blouse with a voluminous sleeve, with more fitted pieces—think straight leg trousers and pencil skirts—to strike the right balance.
While puff sleeves made a small impact last summer, they look set to take over in much grander style this season.
For inspiration, look to Parisian fashion Instagrammer Anne-Laure Mais, aka Adenorah, or models on the runway at Isabel Marant (above).
