Statement sleeves are a big trend this season. If your look is clean and minimalist, you can still embrace this trend without compromising your personal style. Here are the best subtle statement sleeves on the high street right now.

This white shirt offers a really subtle way of drawing attention to your sleeves. The pearl detailing at the shoulders makes it look as if the the sleeves are pinned onto the body of the shirt. A really chic piece for summer or winter.

Pearly shirt, €39.95 at Zara

This shirt offers a really cool contrast between a?collarless neckline and frill sleeves. This is a great option for those of you who want to nod to this season’s love of frills without looking too fussy or girly.

Striped poplin shirt, €135 at Maje

This sweatshirt is top of my wish list right now. I love the simple graphic detail that the open zips give the sleeves.

Oversized zip sweatshirt, €29.95 at Zara

Rik rak throws me right back to my childhood and those gathered skirts I wore in summer. This is a really cute top for summer, styled perfectly with a retro denim skirt.

Sleeveless rik rak top, €59 at & Other Stories

A subtle hint of volume adds a discreet emphasis to sleeves without looking over the top. This Cos top will never go out of style regardless of trends.

Top with rounded sleeves, €69 at Cos
