Trend Report: Extra-Long Sleeves

Oh, trends. Though they may not always uphold a strict level of practicality, they remain to be inspiring to spot and experiment with. Our latest discovery—extra-long sleeves—has been major among the street style set. Ladies like Natalie Joos, Pernille Teisbaek, and Caroline Issa are all sporting blouses and dresses with sleeves that extend far beyond average length. Sure, it may make eating pasta or rummaging through your purse a tad more difficult, but we have to admit the unexpected proportions make for a very cool look. Scroll down to see what we mean, and tell us what you think of the trend in the comments below.

Add normalcy to trend-forward sleeves, like Caroline Issa did, and accessorize with a simple belt and flat sandals.
