The statement sleeve is a style detail that is being seen on high end and more budget friendly items. Any sort of embellishment, cut out, or dramatic shape including pleats and trumpet and bell shapes. Some are more subtle, while others shout “here I am”, in other words, this trend has a little something for everyone.
I fell in love with this white blouse (that also comes in black) I saw at Target while strolling through The Who What Wear Collection. With it’s beautiful bell sleeve, elbow cut out, and large bows, I was instantly smitten.
I have worn it several times, and today I am showing you one way I styled it for a more work appropriate occasion. Dark denim culottes, blue metallic handbag, and red heels are all thrifted items I have picked up over the past several months. The addition of my Dress Barn gold necklace completes this work-ready outfit.
This top is true to size and washes very nicely. It is a bit sheer, so I am wearing a white tank underneath for a little more coverage.
This statement sleeve is the perfect way to add some personality to a classic white shirt!
