Every girl has some sort of body hang-up. Mine is my 34GG bust (yes, GG). Over the years I’ve become an expert at diverting attention away from my bust, but every now and then I make an exception in the name of a new fashion trend.
Right now, it’s all about the exaggerated sleeve, and the options seem to be endless… Ruffled sleeves, flared sleeves, billowy floaty sleeves, bell-shaped sleeves…the list goes on.
I found this leatherette bell sleeve top at Zara (where else? lol) and thinking it might draw too much attention to my upper half, I was a bit hesitant. I took it home anyway and after trying the top with a few of my favourite items, I knew that it was a great purchase! It ended looking better than I thought it would with my faded distressed jeans from Zara and when I added my gold block heels to the mix, I was pleasantly surprised at how cute and fab I felt in my new look!
What are your thoughts on the statement sleeve trend? I’ve included a few inspo photos of girls that have done it right in the gallery below as well as a few of my favourite statement sleeve items for your shopping pleasure.
