The statement sleeve is a trend that has only been growing in popularity. We saw, literally, the rise of the sleeve over the past few seasons and with the cooler weather rolling in its only getting bigger. So what role does the statement sleeve play in the cooler weather? Think chunky knits and lots of bell sleeve options.
When picking items to add to my wardrobe I often look for versatility and wearability. This style that I’m wearing – size down for reference – along with the rest of the other bell sleeve sweater options below are all great classic pieces. The items included in my selection give a nod to the trend instead of fully embracing it. I also don’t wear wool as I’m highly allergic to it. So if you are looking for comfy cozy sweaters without the itch The Chic Series is where its at.
Now that you have your statement sleeve sweater – the question becomes what do you do with it? The outfit formula is pretty simple. If you pick a chunky oversized sweater up top keep the rest of your look streamlined. Being that my legs aren’t super skinny I prefer the relaxed girlfriend denim to the super skinny style. The girlfriend denim has become my preferred denim silhouette due to its versatility and its ability to flatter a more athletic figure. Its easy to wear and looks great dressed up and down. To keep your look simple and sophisticated balance out an oversized piece with tailored accessories. Of course to fully complete your fall look you need to update your make-up palette.
