Tricky Trend

This week, newly released February magazines are highlighting the coming seasons trends and it's slowly starting to trickle in store. There are a couple of trends that look gorgeous if you're a street style fashionista but personally I won’t be embracing this winter as they don’t suit my lifestyle, especially the statement sleeve!

So how to interpret this statement sleeve trend so you look current not fashion faux pas?

Try a style with sleeves that are full from the empire line, this draws attention to the waist not hips.


A fitted style with elongated sleeves will make you arms appear thinner but beware this style may also draw attention to your hips and bottom.

A dress is a great way to inject this trend into your wardrobe.


A sleeve that you can see through, think sheer silk or lace, gives focus to your arm silhouette and make it easier to wear.
