Make a Statement with Sleeves

Posted on

This season, it’s all about the statement sleeves! Sleeves these days don’t just come in long or short. Now there are many shapes and sizes from billowy, bell, flute, extra long and more. We are loving it! Statement sleeves are perfect for adding some playfulness to your look.

The best part about this trend is that it is not bound by season. You can wear flare sleeves with shorts, pants, lighter fabrics and as the weather cools down the trend can be seen in knitwear. Your go-to outfit of jeans and heels just got a major upgrade by swapping your blouse over for a statement sleeve. Embrace the trend with these key styles below.


Flute sleeves are fitted on the shoulder and flare out wide towards the wrist. This trend was huge in the 70s with the hippy movement. Now it has come back with a modern update adding interest to an otherwise ordinary outfit. The flute sleeve is a versatile item and can be paired with a casual style like jeans and a low-heeled show. Or you can opt for a dress with fluted sleeves paired with pumps for a more dramatic look.


The balloon sleeve top will amplify any outfit. The style is wide at the sleeve but comes in at the wrist, adding dimension to any outfit. The Balloon sleeve will add a feminine touch to any outfit.

Refine your look with a feminine trumpet sleeve. The trumpet sleeve features a bit more volume, pleats, and layers than other sleeve styles so it will add a romantic feel to any outfit. We recommend styling this tucked in with a pencil skirt or slim line pants to balance out the sleeves.

Add a statement to your knits with some detailing like ruffles or playful tie sleeves. This will provide a feminine and playful look that will refresh your wardrobe. Wear this trend with jeans and sneakers for effortless weekend styling. 

What type of sleeve with you be embracing this season?
