I for one, have totally and utterly fallen under the spell of this trend – and happily so!

It’s no surprise that the whole world has gone crazy for a good, exaggerated, sleeve. Everyone and their dog are getting a slice of the sartorial action and I for one, have totally and utterly fallen for this trend! I wrote here about I don’t often dabble with trends too quickly (but when I fall for one, I FALL HARD!) I guess it’s fear of not being able to work it into my wardrobe or get a nice, lot of wear out of an item. In my opinion, there’s nothing worse than something sitting in my wardrobe, unworn and admittedly, unloved. However, after concluding in my end of 2016 trend post, that big, bold sleeves were in fact, my absolute FAVE trend of the year, I have a feeling that this is one trend that’s here to stay (Or at least, definitely for this gal!)



My Top picks



I mean, if the Tudors loved this trend, it’s got to be a classic, right?

I’ve (not so ashamedly) fully committed myself, my wardrobe and quite possibly, my life to the statement sleeve hype! My Pinterest pretty much consists of dreamy, Scandi, Interiors and sleeves! Flared, bell, embellished, cuffed – all the rules about buying two of the same thing have totally gone out the window. I’m repeatedly finding myself in the Zara changing rooms, rails weighed down with countless shirts.



In my books, I’ve loved this trend for just over a year and so for me, that’s a long, lasting, relationship blossoming right there.

The thing I love most is that it’s so versatile and everyone and anyone can rock it, all year round. Now that’s what I call a piece for LIFE. I LOVE a good multi seasonal piece and I feel like I have such a collection growing that it almost justifies a whole, dedicated YouTube Video! Leather trousers, under a jumpsuit, with denim cut offs, mom jeans – the combinations are endless! The sign of a bad trend is impulse buying that only amounts to it later ending up on Depop. The sign of a good one? Physically being unable to stop yourself from said trend, taking over your life. This Primark beauty was a total and utter bargain and I can’t wait to rock it all spring and summer long! You can catch my thoughts on it, as well as loads of other pieces I grabbed the other day in my Primark Haul, over on my channel this Sunday!
