Trend Report: Statement Sleeves

Statement sleeves have been a huge trend for a few seasons now, whether it be tiered, ruffled, flared or even balloon. But more recently, AW18 collections have started to rely heavily on the balloon sleeve. And of course, some of our favourite Australian designers are on board, including: Zimmermann, LifewithBird and Aje.

For the colder months, you can incorporate balloon sleeves into your wardrobe with cotton jumpers and intricate blouses. This trend is so versatile – we think it’s probably the comfiest and easiest way to dress up an outfit. Here are our top picks for the season, we know you’ll need at least one.
