Sleeves are a big statement this year and it’s not the first thing that comes to mind when we look at trends. There are so many designers who have manipulated the shapes of sleeves to mention a few designers such as Marc Jacobs and Vetements including others who I have mentioned down below. Most of these sleeve trends have trickled down to the high street which is why I used some as examples from stores such as Zara.I think that having sleeves as statements is a new direction for how designers to change up trends as it is not a usual trend that occurs. So down below are examples of the types of sleeves we will be seeing this year.
