Last year we saw the statement sleeve make a trend and I’m happy to say it’s still going strong! Not only is this look amazing for fall, it’s going to take us right on into spring as well. This is one trend that I just can’t get enough of – whether a dress or a top – let your sleeves do the talking for your outfit and make a statement!
From dramatic bell sleeves to ruffles big or small, statement sleeves are so fun right now! This Chelsea28 shift dress I had the pleasure of wearing for our Thanksgiving meal, complete with Spanx lace tights. Haha – everybody wears Spanx to Thanksgiving right? I found this dress so versatile in all the different ways to style it that I had a hard time deciding on which look to go for. I really like the detailing in the sleeves and the elastic at the bottom is really appreciated, when I adjusted the sleeve it stayed in place. I’m 5’8″ and found the length of the dress the shortest I’m willing to go, but I felt like the tights gave me more coverage.
So what are my favorite ways to wear a statement sleeve? Dresses are easy, but tops need a little more thought. My favorite way to pair statement sleeve tops for fall & winter is with skinny jeans – it’s a no brainer. Cropped pants are another great option. Tucked into a pencil skirt is another look that you can take from the office to date night depending on how you style it.
I’m pretty much in awe right now of all the gorgeous options now with statement sleeves, some are big and bold, others have a more modest sleeve – either way I’m am loving these! My outfit details are below plus I’ve found so many more drool-worthy dresses and tops for you!
