It's Official! Everyone's Wearing Statement Sleeves

It's no secret that we love an outfit with a dabble of difference and the statement sleeve is the style flourish du jour that's captured the imagination of A-listers and style icons alike. The U.S. team called out a subset of the main trend way back in early August and, lo and behold, the long-sleeve look has flourished ever still. What looked at first glance to be a bit of fashion frippery—a trend with a twist of whimsy beloved of our favourite street style peacocks—has outlived the summer and embedded itself into autumn's style subconcious.

Be it the supersized ones seen at Fashion Week (An impractical way to impose a life lived handsfree), an exaggerated bell sleeve or a ruffled, tailored style with cut-outs—there are many ways to work this directional look. Take notes now.
