round up: bell of the ball.


One of the best ways to add personality to your wardrobe this season is the statement-sleeve. Feminine yet dramatic, these tops make an entrance and look incredibly stylish at the same time.

With this trend you can go subtle with a slight bell or full-throttle.  Beyond just the flair variety, sleeves with ties, ruching, billowing fabric or multiple tiers add style to an everyday top.

Designers are incorporating statement sleeves on everything from coats to dresses and athleisure hoodies. Fabrics for these little wonders include classic cotton, lace, wool silk and crepe.

For you colder climate ladies, consider layering a bell sleeve Oxford under a crop-sleeved sweater or jacket. If you live in a warmer climate, rock one of the off-the-shoulder bell-sleeve looks.

Happy styling… xx amanda brooke
