Summer 2017 has been the season of the statement sleeve – whether they feature fringing or ruffles, bell shaped or extra long; they’re all on our fashion radar. The statement sleeve trend kicked off with off-shoulder tops that were sported on anyone and everyone, before quickly expanding to include a variety of lengths, volumes and textures. Be(sleeve) us, this trend is going nowhere.
They’ve been spotted on the Looker app multiple times, with our Lookers pulling different styling tricks out of their sleeves time and time again. Take a look at our favourite statement sleeves, as styled by you.
Put a quirky spin on a classic white shirt like Andrea by going big and bold with a structured arm. The extra wide sleeves paired with a ribbon necktie create a Blair Waldorf feel and who didn’t want her Gossip Girl wardrobe? (or boyfriend…).
Pair your frill sleeves with SS17’s most popular shoe: the mule, and you’ve got yourself the perfect combination of Looker-approved trends. Liven up classic black with a pop of colour – Tinu’s yellow trousers are the ideal summery hue to accompany her flamenco style ruffles.
We’re up in arms over Agnieska’s understated modern look. The monochrome colour palette and Gucci belt add a luxe touch while the exaggerated sleeves and straw bag polish off the look to perfection, thanks to their status as some of the summer’s must-have pieces.
If you’re in the minority of people that haven’t yet invested in an off-shoulder top, it’s time. Nikita’s slouchy sleeves and shredded hem create a casual vibe while her black accessories and dark denim add a classic touch. Mixing and matching on trend pieces with your wardrobe staples are a fool proof fashion formula.
Simultaneously channel Becky and a young Dolly Parton by rocking fringe detailing. Embrace your inner cowgirl by pairing your fringe with denim, high fives all around if you double up on fringing via your trouser hem. We’re suckers for a good bit of fringe.
Summer brights + an off-shoulder top with plumped up sleeves = your summer style woes, sorted. Do like Chloe and pair yours with velvet, fishnets and faux fur to nail a hat trick of trendy textures.
