Fall 2017: Statement Sleeves

With NYFW ending, I'm more inspired than ever! I always love seeing the dramatic runway looks and figuring out how to incorporate the trends into my everyday wardrobe. One style we started seeing this past spring were bell sleeves, this style has evolved into the dramatic sleeves we see today called "statement sleeves." Statement sleeves can be anything from oversized ruffles, dropped-shoulder seams, rows of fringe, extra-long arms, split-seams, cutouts, frayed edges, billowing elbows and more! The options are endless, and as you may have already noticed- this trend is everywhere. They can be seen on knits, woven's, dresses, sweaters, or jackets. While statement sleeves will definitely be a staple this fall, they are also being forecasted for spring/summer 2018. Here are some of my favorite spring/summer 2018 looks from NYFW:

My favorite part about statement sleeves is how you can easily transform basic pieces from boring to fun! Most of the pieces I own are fairly simple, but with the addition of a fun sleeve it easily takes your outfit up a notch. I'm showing you a long sleeved t-shirt dress with a tiered bell sleeve. I got so many compliments when I wore this outfit! 

 Not only is this dress super cute, but it's also soo soft and comfy!
