Spring/Summer 2017 is all about warm weather and a statement sleeve like the bell sleeve, cold shoulder, off the shoulder, the slit sleeve – there really is a sleeve for every style preference. I challenge you to incorporate one or more of these styles into your warm weather rotation!
I recently picked up this slit sleeve blouse. It’s a great choice for anyone who doesn’t like to show a lot of skin. With its barely-there slit, you can be trendy but not over the top. What’s also great about this top is the flowy material and ruffle hem. On paper, this top kinda sounds like a hot mess but is actually well executed.
Last spring, I was introduced to the Who What Wear Collection collaboration with Target. This collab is ongoing and is filled with on-trend pieces at affordable prices (see my other WWW outfits). Here is an example of yet another item that I couldn’t resist. Oh, and how cute is this Ted Baker bag?! It was a birthday gift to myself. I wanted to represent now that I am a cat momma of two.
How to wear the Slit Sleeve?
The slit sleeve can work for most, if not all occasions. For an off-duty look, wear with jeans and your most comfortable ballet flats. For your 9-5, find a silk or flowy blouse to wear tucked in a skirt or pant. Once evening comes, slip into a cocktail dress with slit sleeves and meet up with your girlfriends for happy hour.
Will you be wearing a statement sleeve this season? Which one is your favorite?
