On Our Radar

NICHE Magazne - - From The Editor - by Jen­nifer Costanzo

Now that sum­mer is be­hind us, it is time for change. With the days get­ting shorter and the nights get­ting cooler, you can't reach for that cold shoul­der top any­more. How­ever, there is a new trend in town and it is the ex­ag­ger­ated sleeve. The sleeve trend started with the cold shoul­der and one shoul­der trend and now it has trick­led down to give us the state­ment sleeves.

The state­ment sleeve was seen on nu­mer­ous fall run­ways, from J.W. An­der­son, Ba­len­ci­aga and Gucci, to Si­mone Rocha and Anna Sui. The ex­ag­ger­ated sleeves are a nod to the Ro­man­tic pe­riod where fashion de­sign­ers have re­worked old styles for the mod­ern era, mak­ing at­ten­tion­grab­bing sleeves steal the fashion spotlight for fall. The trend quickly made its way to the streets, seen on mod­els and blog­gers alike. It is not only for the

cat­walk, but also the high street, which caught on to the style al­most the sec­ond it left the run­way mak­ing this trend an ac­ces­si­ble one for all.

For an in­stant fashion for­ward look, pick up a top or sweater for fall with an in­ter­est­ing sleeve and it will in­stantly trans­form your look. This trend is per­fect for the cooler sea­son be­cause it is the per­fect party piece, es­pe­cially when the hol­i­days hit. The trend, although at first glance may seem a lit­tle over the top to some and im­prac­ti­cal to oth­ers, it re­ally doesn't have to be.

From bell to bishop sleeves, to flounce and ruf­fle sleeves, there is a state­ment sleeve for ev­ery­one. This sea­son the bo­hemian styles have gone and in­stead the ex­ag­ger­ated sleeves are mod­ern and ut­terly chic. From sleek dresses, to cool tops and even knits, the ex­ag­ger­ated sleeve adds a unique dose of fashion to even the sim­plest of out­fits. Re­mem­ber though to keep the rest of your out­fit min­i­mal. A sim­ple sil­hou­ette in a neu­tral color pal­ette paired with an at­ten­tion-grab­bing sleeve is all you need to fin­ish the on trend look.
