Scroll through the most fashionable celebrity Instagram feeds and you’ll know that statement sleeves had quite a new fashion moment in 2017 (and continue to have one). From one shoulder to cut-out styles, we saw a variety of sleeve styles emerge with just one thing in common - the power to make a statement. Last year we told you how the shoulders are undoubtedly fashion’s favourite body part, courtesy this top. Well, things aren’t any different right now. With asymmetrical necklines slowly (and surely) making their way to our closets and the balloon sleeves trend is spreading like wildfire!
Style this Bardot Top With Balloon Sleeves (Rs 629) with basic jeans or denim shorts for a weekend getaway with your friends.
We can’t help but think of shoulder pads when we have a look at the silhouette of the sleeve. The fact that the dramatic sleeve cinches at the elbow or the wrist and has a very surreal appeal makes us like it a lot more than shoulder pads for sure. With ‘Ultra Violet’ being announced as the Pantone colour of the year and now these dramatic sleeves, fashion is definitely getting a futuristic update.
This Striped Balloon Sleeve Crop Top (Rs 395) will look great with high-waisted pants for an important meeting or just a casual coffee with colleagues.
The trend was spotted on two of our favourite stars, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in completely different styles. While Deepika chooses to flaunt the trend in an off-shoulder, Sonam chooses to minimise distraction and grabs all the attention on the balloon tops sleeves.
We’re loving this balloon sleeve sweater (Rs 2,944) in Pantone colour of the year perfect for a dinner date with your beloved.
Take inspiration from the Bollywood divas and embrace the style that best fits you! We think the trend makes for a good investment for the larger than life party days to come. Style it with pencil skirts, tapered trousers and well-fitted jeans for a 2018-version of power dressing! Also in the near future, dresses with balloon sleeves for when you want to keep it stylish but simple.
