EVERY­ONE’S WEAR­ING... STATE­MENT SLEEVES

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

No­body ever claimed that fash­ion should be prac­ti­cal and this lat­est cuff di­rec­tion is any­thing but. Think over­sized and OTT sleeves and you’ll be bang on trend. Whether you go for bell (as in bell shaped), bishop (widens from the lower arm and gath­ers at the cuff), batwing (gives the ap­pear­ance of un­der­arm wings) or bal­loon (puffed out and wide) — if it starts with a ‘b’ and it’s ex­tra long in length you’re onto a win­ning look. Ruf­fle sleeves are also mak­ing a come­back. Choose from lay­ers of ruf­fles that com­pletely cover the sleeve or be­gin at the el­bow or cuff. Off the shoul­der sleeves and cold­shoul­der de­signs con­tinue to reign for the sea­son ahead. Just a glimpse of ex­po­sure grabs the eye and al­ways looks sexy. If you pre­fer more of a la­dy­like fin­ish, choose a flounce sleeve (cre­ated by a sep­a­rate piece of fab­ric at­tached to the sleeve to give the ma­te­rial more flu­id­ity). What­ever style takes your pref­er­ence, make sure it’s loud, fun and has a stand­out fac­tor. Lastly, don’t for­get to pare down the rest of your look to bal­ance your sil­hou­ette.
