September 3rd, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Trend Alert: Statement Sleeves and How to Wear Them

Statement sleeves are by no means a new trend, but with the arrival of fall and cooler temperatures, we’ll be wearing more sleeved tops and layers. A voluminous sleeve adds a unique flair to your fall and winter wardrobes. A statement sleeve is so much easier to pull off than other typical avant-garde trends that are reserved for red carpets and Instagram influencer content.

From big and bold to subtle details, a piece with statement sleeves is a fun way to break up the monotony of the fall uniform of sweaters and jeans and add a bit of drama to your look.
