Dear Cheryl: Make A Statement With Your Sleeves


I love separates, but I’m bored with most blouse and shirt shapes. Is there something new to look forward to this season? — Demelza J., Sanibel

You couldn’t have picked a better time to update your blouse and shirt wardrobe, as a major trend this fall/winter is the statement sleeve. The beauty of this fashion feature is that it’s not just one silhouette—it can range from something as simple as an exaggerated, elongated cuff to a full-blown poet sleeve with wrist ruffles. Fabric plays a key role in the look and hang of sleeves. Fluid, drapey fabrics are best for fluted, bell-shaped, romantic designs; denim, crisp cottons and firm fabrics are perfect for creating sculpted, dramatic and edgy silhouettes. And blouses and skirts aren’t the only items highlighting sleeves. You’ll see interesting sleeve details incorporated into knitwear, dresses, jackets and even coats. There are plenty of ways this season to arm yourself with a contemporary new look.
