Happy Friday my friends!
Wow, so life has been pretty crazy these last few weeks (which of course I’m not complaining about) but I feel like I’m finally starting to get into a stride with posting on my blog. I definitely don’t want to start posting just because I feel I have to but weekly uploads are absolutely something I’m aspiring towards and which I’m happy to tell you, will definitely be happening over the month of August.
I’d toyed with calling today’s post Fashion Friday with wonderful delusions of grandeur that this would become a weekly series. Now the idea’s out there, I’m going to really try and get this going but in order to relieve any immediate pressure, I stuck with the ever so flexible and super original (sarcasm), Trend Talk.
I never quite realised how much I needed a statement sleeve top until I discovered this Topshop beauty. I’d dabbled in the past with last season’s flute sleeve trend but never quite got on board with it, until now. This bow sleeve top was actually one of those, ‘that looks cute but can’t be bothered to try it on’ last minute grabs, as you whirlwind out of Topshop Oxford Circus. I didn’t have any expectations and wasn’t really sure if it would work but all the key elements were there, straight neckline, Parisian chic stripes and a boxy looking cut; tick, tick, tick. Once I got home and tried it on, it was even better than I had imagined and now I pretty much want one in every colour.
I styled this with skinny jeans as the cut around the waist slightly tapers in giving a great feminine but still minimal silhouette. It would also look great with these cigarette pants for uber chic french girl style.
Have you dabbled with statement sleeves this season?
