It’s a Thing: Flared Sleeves

Everywhere you look lately there are cute bell-sleeves and they really do make any plain top look so much more fun, feminine and festive. I was afraid they wouldn’t pass the spaghetti-sauce test (somehow I always end up with my sleeve in my plate of food) but I own a couple myself, and pull them out when I need a little added excitement. And so far I’ve managed to keep them clean!

This cool, dramatic one from Pixie Market has a whole arm of workable snaps.
Here’s a simple black scoop neck with the fun starting just above the wrist.

A popover button-down in banker blue is anything but preppy when the arms flutter! And the slightly cropped sleeves are totally manageable.
Another great striped tee with a feminine edge.

This crisp white shirt is swingy all around.

    This seems like a crazy thing – all of us ladies walking around like bats in the night with our wings but I love it! I’m totally on board for this look!

    Xoxo, Maggie
