FW16 trends are sleeve-specific. To achieve the most stylish and relevant look, you should either roll your sleeves up or pick the right ones. They contribute to the modern silhouette creating new shapes and volumes. Let’s shop for details that make the difference!
Sleeves with a wide hem, flare or frill are part of the romantic look lately infused with sporty elements. Bell sleeves are gracious and dramatic. They offer you comfort and ease of movement. This Sacai Quilted Bomber Jacket is the perfect athleisure example. For extra volume, style it with flared pants.
Since last season, street style stars have been rocking the extra-long sleeve. It’s a cool element, and a fashionable exaggeration. For Parisian chic, pick the Jacquemus Gathered Long-Sleeve Shirt with epic draping on the sleeves. The result is effortless and sculptural. Others accentuate the detail through elongated cuffs. Check this Ports 1961 Tassel Detail Shirt that combines austere and playful touches in a unique way.
In the summer we did off-the-shoulder and in the fall we transition to the ‘cold-shoulder’ trend to keep on showing off some skin. Shoulders have been lately elevated by designers into another ‘erogenous’ zone and that means we still want to use this sultry detail. For a cozy & sexy feel, try this Maje Manu Cut-Out Ribbed-Knit Top.
The blouson sleeve is retro and majestic, with a gathered cuff, either elastic or banded. It evokes 70s-inspired bohemian allure and a luxury feel. When crafted from lace and trimmed with velvet, opulence reaches a whole new level. This Sacai Lace-Paneled Blouse is a very strong attention-grabber! Check also the Kenzo Printed A-Line Silk Dress to be layered over a turtleneck.
A Little Shorter
With sleeves this season, you either go too long or three-quarter-length. Shorter sleeves reveal your statement jewelry, including chain bracelets, golden cuffs, or your favorite watch. It looks as if the designer run out of fabric, yet it is very flattering and smart. That was the twist Kate Moss added to her Equipment Lake Pajama Top. It’s also a signature element at the Diane von Furstenberg New Jewel Wrap Dress and the Michael Kors Ribbed Knit V-neck Cashmere Dress .
