Today’s outfit post is one of my favourite as it’s about my current favourite trend: Statement Sleeves. Statement sleeves are such a big hit this season, from being on a basic tee to a party dress, it can instantly up your outfit game. A sleeve that is perfectly cut and tailored adds a different level of drama to any outfit. Perhaps this is the reason that this part of a garment has become an area of experimentation for designers of late.
And there are so many options when it comes to statement sleeves- billowy to bell shaped, ruffled to extra long. The more fun you have with the sleeves, the more playful your look can be.
I have been lately wishing for that perfect statement sleeve outfit and this blue dress from Sassy Stripes is just so beautiful!
This dress is the perfect mix of classic and trendy style. Ruffled statement sleeves with that basic silhouette is what makes this outfit speak trend and sophistication at the same time. Sassy Stripes has such glam and trendy pieces to die for. The major element of this outfit- its ruffled sleeves definitely sets the outfit apart from the crowd.
The voluminous sleeves of this season is inspired by the Edwardian period. Back then, Bishops sleeve or the Ballon sleeve were in highlights. The sleeves were gigantic in proportions. The size of the sleeve was highlighted by belting the waist against simple gored skirt, that flared to balance the massive sleeve.
Contrary to the past, the sleeves today don’t need any extra elements to define it.
With sleeves as this dramatic as in this outfit from Sassy Stripes, the silhouette of the outfit doesn’t need any detailing. The overall outfit is not only elegant, it is comfortable as well.
I bet you will love this look as much as I loved shooting it.
