2 trends that I tried to pull off..‘The shirt’ and ‘the statement- sleeve’. Both are absolute must-haves for 2017, and come in all sorts and sizes, however, I’ve chosen to stick with the good old stripe. The breton en banker style- stripe as you can see, to be more precise.
Now then, let’s have a closer look at the shirt, because they are currently influencing the runways and brands worldwide. Byebye boardroom, hello mainstream! It’s time to give this conservative classic a modern twist –
Try and wrap it, chop it, button it up or down – right or wrong – just remix it! Wear it oversized, off the shoulder, half tucked into your pants, or with no pants, and wrap it around your waist to sport a ‘shirt skirt’. There are no rules, so don’t you dare bring your beloved, boring, version into the office just because it’s a 2017 bank holiday. Have fun and risk. Hurray!
If u take your statement sleeves out for the first time, you might find yourself wanting to wave at strangers to maximise your sleeve fun, and nope, they might not be the most practical trend, but honestly ladies, some special sleeves really do add a unique dose of fashion to any basic outfit.
As you may know, I’m all for simple, no-fuss dressing, so I tend to choose the most practical version – called the ‘layered sleeve’. This sleeve-style (is that even a thing?) works best -like any other statement piece- paired with basic items. I love the playful, yet minimal, look it boasts!
Now, say hi to the bell sleeves, bishop sleeves, ruffle sleeves, extra long sleeves, cold shoulder sleeves, fur sleeves and balloon sleeves! The fun is endless. Pick your favorite style, and wear it all season long
