Most of us love a bit of sleeve, especially from now until April. But sleeves can be more than a cozy cover – they can be style statements. As per always, the women of Visible Monday provide ideas and inspiration when it comes to Sleeving (new word, actually borrowed from the great movie Roxanne).
As always, the first tip is: wear the sleeve styles you love, and own your look. Confidence is all.
And there’s always room in my closet for some fun and funky sleeves:
Gorgeous Elsie from The Cooking Wardrobe chose this brilliant floral shift with a shoulder-less sleeve and skimming fit. The dress is so pretty, with the floral print “falling off” one side. Great sandals too:
Andrea of Living On Cloud Nine, does a fab Boho look with knit vest, sunglasses, and floppy hat. And of course, the flowy dress with bell-hem sleeves. We all had this dress or blouse, right? A great vintage/modern look:
Laurie of Vanity And Me wears a current turtleneck poncho with cropped wide sleeves. This topper has such appealing shape and structure, it really makes the look fresh. The sleeves balance the slim trousers beautifully:
Sheila of Ephemera is always fabulous and creative in her style. This vintage dress would not be as amazing as it is without the full gathered-and-cuffed sleeves. Love the spring green color too:
Jenny of A Pocketful Of Polka Dots is the boldest sleeve model this week. Love those ruffled, dramatic sleeves on an otherwise simple, chic tunic. Jenny does not need to add much in the way of accessories, as the sleeves are a fab statement:
How do you like to sleeve? xo
Here’s more statement-making pieces for any age, inspired by the Visible women:
