The statement sleeves we’ll be wearing for SS19

Statement sleeves stole the spotlight for SS19. The Victorian-inspired puff sleeve might resemble a semi-deflated balloon, but a plethora of high-fashion designers have brought a fashion-forward approach to this statement-making look.

From imaginative ruffle styles at Ulla Johnson, directional cuts at Marc Jacobs, tie-dye interpretations at Louis Vuitton and ultra-feminine vibes at Rodarte, the SS19 catwalks gave puffy sleeves a new lease of life with fabulously unique details that are so wearable for spring.

To make this voluminous trend look effortlessly elegant, pair yours with a tight bodice and wear it with wide-leg pants. If you’re like me and you’re already obsessing over spring’s upcoming trends, check out this style on the catwalk and how street-style mavens are interpreting the billowing sleeve look.
