There are four statement sleeves we love right now at Chasing Case! They're an easy way to add interest to an otherwise basic outfit. And, they’re surprisingly comfortable and easy to wear. Whether it’s a Bell Sleeve, Open Shoulder Sleeve, Off Shoulder Sleeve, Ruffle Sleeve, Flutter Sleeve or Billow Sleeve. The list of trending sleeves goes on! Here’s the low down on our favourites.
Bell Sleeve – this one’s a classic sleeve trend which has had a big revival in recent seasons. This style is more fitted in the upper arm and tends to flair from the elbow giving the effect of a bell. Pair your bell sleeve with skinnies, like our High Rise Super Skinny Jean. The narrow leg of the jean will emphasise the sleeve and make it the focus of your outfit.
Off Shoulder Sleeve – perfect for showing off a little more skin during the warmer months, the off shoulder sleeve is hot right now! We love it because it draws attention to a subtle showing of skin without creating an over the top feel. The off shoulder silhouette also comes in many variations – short sleeve, long sleeve, flutter sleeve, just to name a few. This versatile style means you can wear them for a fashionable everyday look or dress them up for special occasions. Be sure to check out our Off Shoulder Lace Top for some off shoulder style inspiration.
Flutter Sleeve – the flutter sleeve is a less common variation on the statement sleeve. Yet, it's equally as wearable as some of it’s more popular cousins. More generally seen as cuff detail, the flutter sleeve adds a feminine edge to any outfit. We love it for it’s understated style and suggest it as a good starting place if you’re new to statement sleeves. We love the flutter sleeve featured in our Off Shoulder Sun Dress.
Billow Sleeve – one of the more extreme sleeve trends, the billow sleeve starts at the shoulder and continues to a tight end on the wrist. We love it because it hides any part of the arm you may not want to show off while making your wrist look small compared to your arms. It’s a really flattering style as seen featured in our Billow Sleeve Dress in mustard.
When styling a statement sleeve always remember – the fussier the sleeve, the simpler the outfit.
