Dramatic Sleeves

Dramatic Sleeves - Shein top, Emporio Armani sunglasses, American Eagle jeans Primark floral bag, Zara wedges.

My sleeve game is quite strong and evident in this post. This is the most dramatic I have gone in the sleeve department. This lavender top with its billowy sleeves or ‘lantern’ sleeves as they are called is not something everyone would love. I wasn’t completely sold on this at the beginning. But some part of me was curious to give it a try. With these dramatic sleeves being the first thing you notice, I thought my look is done best when it’s the only feature of the outfit. The design of the puffed sleeve transports me back to the ancient Victorian era. So I balanced it out with jeans and wedges to give it a modern and feminine touch.

    Oh I’m so in love with those amazing sleeves need to find tops with them on such a statement of it’s own.

  • I can’t wear something like this .It will make me look like a balloon.You look stunning though .I adore the bag and shoes though !

  • David Elliott

    The colors are really pretty. And I have to say that you look amazing. Although I am not sure I like the billowy sleeves part. I will have to think about it for a while. I am not sure how I feel yet.

    Yes, those sleeves are awesome! I really love the look. I wouldn’t have thought it would look good…but it actually does. And you did a great job by adding the blouse with jeans, something simple on the bottom doesn’t distract from the billowy sleeves. Nice.

    I’m not a huge fan of the new dramatic sleeeves, but THIS one I like. I like the price even more and I’ve already added it to my cart.
