We are so close to summer but with one more month to go I wanted to share my favorite trend of the spring season; the statement sleeve. I have to admit when the statement sleeve first hit the scene I was a seller. But after doing plenty of research, as I typically do when a new trend emerges, I realized that it simply takes the place of your basic tee. To prove its versatility I paired two separate tops both under $100 with the same pair of high waisted denim (obsessed with them) and the same earrings (just in a different color) but traded in my heels for sneakers.
Both tops are under $100 and if you are looking to invest in one style to test it out I would go with the first top in white. The black ruffle top is only $71 and to be honest I was skeptical of the quality of the top but it is definitely a winner. The lightweight fabric and has a really fun movement to the sleeve and looks great tucked into high waisted denim. I have actually ordered a few tops from this brand which is really well priced and am loving everything that I have received.
The statement sleeve is a chic version of your basic tee.
The blue tie waist top is a more structured fabric but I absolutely love the tie around the waist. I’m all about defining my waist these days as it can help slenderize your figure. As you can see the statement sleeve trend is great for anyone who is looking to make a subtle yet impactful update to their normal everyday or date night look. Particularly perfect for a mom who just wants to kick it up a notch.
