Statement sleeves have become the staple shirt for every fashionista’s wardrobe and they are anything but a passing trend! Designed in a vast range of prints, patterns, and silhouettes, the statement sleeve is our number one must-have for the season. With so many exaggerated bell sleeves and stand out styles coming in daily, we hope this roundup of our faves inspires you to give this trend a try.

Sleeve Envy

It’s all about the exaggerated sleeve and there are so many options, from bell to billowy shaped, ruffled to extra long lengths – the list goes on and on! All these statement sleeve styles are making a bigger appearance in fashion this year, and we are OBSESSED!

There are so many fun ways you can add this trend into your daily wardrobe; one of our go-to looks is to pair it with your favorite denim jeans, accentuate with a timeless, bare-it-all ankle strap high heel sandal, and glam it up with gold hoop earrings like the ones shown above.

Whether you’re hitting the town with your girl group or on the hunt for the perfect date night outfit, this trend is just what your closet needs. Because the focus of the outfit should be on the sleeves, it looks fresh and chic to keep your accessories minimal and classic when you wear statement sleeve anything.

Bell sleeves were popular back in the 70s and they’re finally making a comeback this season in a major way. If you’re looking for the easiest kind of statement sleeves to pull off, bell sleeves may just be what you are looking for. If you’re searching for the right sleeve, but aren’t into the flowing look, just look for structured materials. Updated for 2017, the new bell sleeve is chic and modern, which will give a sophisticated vibe, while still being so on trend!

Flare and volume is what this fall is all about; the fussier the sleeve, the finer the outfit! While this post is all about the statement sleeves, the outfit below features two other major trends to know this season. The first are dramatic cat eye sunglasses, which have been popping up everywhere, and we LOVE the look.  The other trend we are calling out in this post is the black (vegan) leather skirt. We love the staple because it’s perfect for transitioning into fall. Complete the ensemble with a pair of cool, heeled ankle boots, and you’ve got a perfect outfit for the season.
