Fall Fashion Trend: The Statement Sleeve

I'm sure you've heard of statement earrings, statement necklaces and even statement bags, but how about statement sleeves? This spring, we started to see an influx of styles that centered around shirt sleeves: bell sleeves, ruffled sleeves, tied sleeves...the list goes on. It was hard to go a block on the street this summer without seeing them. And now it looks like this statement sleeve trend is going full steam ahead into Fall!

This SheIn Lantern Sleeve Belted Back Crop Top is definitely a statement piece. The billowy sleeves are eye-catching, meanwhile two straps wind around the waist, tying in a bow around the back. The shirt is a crop top, but I like how you can adjust the straps to cover more or less of your waist. At $24 US, this shirt doesn't break the bank, either. I was a little concerned about the sizing, but Medium ended up being a perfect fit.

The way the billowy sleeves end just above the wrist, they also nicely showcase any jewelry you're wearing. These gold accessories from Nobis & Grey were on heavy rotation in my wardrobe during summer, but will also look great with my camel-coloured outfits this Fall. I find gold to be a very "rich" colour, and I prefer wearing it with greens, browns and deep blues especially.

Of course, if these sleeves seem a bit too ambitious for you at first, there are plenty other styles you can try that are a little bit more subdued. I've linked up a few below for you to check out!
