Sleeves Are Having Their Moment

Bell sleeves seem to be swinging their way around town at the moment and this is a train I can get on board with.

Putting myself back on the outfit of the day scene after five and a half months is a bit daunting, and I don't think I'm quite ready to go head first into the fearless realms of fashion.
I've seen bolder takes on this style - Liv Puris, I'm looking at you and your fabulous jumper - which I adore, but I thought I would start by dipping my toe in, so I've gone for a subtler, yet just as fabulous version.

The sleeve is having a moment, and I think it's about time. For the longest while they haven't had much to say, they've sat back and occasionally changed in length whilst they've watched their bodice counterpart have every imaginable seam altered, but finally, they're doing it for themselves and bringing volume and flare by the bucket load.

It's a brilliant way to add movement and texture to an outfit without the fuss. The added interest, created by the increase in fabric, means you can step away from the pattern if you choose. But if like me you're not ready for the HD version just yet, then tone it back, go for a smaller sleeve and add a simple print (we all know I love a stripe!).
