Trends to Watch: Statement Sleeves

Getting up in the morning is about 78% easier when you know what you are going to throw on after prepping your face with moisturizer and a swipe of highlighter.

It’s roughly 84% easier when you love what you are, in fact, throwing on.

This was true for myself in 2009, when I covered myself from wrist to elbow in bangles and layered one sheer tank over one not-quite-so-sheer tee, and remains true in 2017 when I would rather deal with billows of fabric draped on my keyboard than naked arms.

I feel like this year has really been an A+ year of trends that celebrate being a little extra – and that, I am.

From high-waisted, Cindy Crawford-esque denim complete with a stark white bodysuit to 1980’s Cher off-the-shoulder everything – we are all cheering for a little more fabric in all the right places, exaggerated sleeves included.

See below for some of our favorite pairings, via the Buckle.com new arrivals section – and I hope your morning routine is inspired to be a fraction easier.
