Find the Right One

What I meant by find the right one is, find the right one for your body shape and size. Statement sleeves can quickly overwhelm your body if you petite. So start small and work your way up, see what kind of statement sleeve works for you. On the opposite send, if you’re tall and slender, you might have the ability to play with more voluminous statement sleeves. So maybe start big and work your way down (if even needed). Example: for me, I’ve found statement sleeves that have the volume at the shoulders and cinch in at the wrist work best for me. And if I want a bell sleeve, well then it better be three quarter sleeves. Otherwise it’s slightly overwhelming and doesn’t look very well proportioned. 

Balance

Wearing statements sleeves definitely requires some balance! No I don’t mean the type of balance that occurs when you stand on one leg. But rather balance of what you wear on the bottom half of your body. Since the sleeves are providing the statement and volume, you need something to keep your shape and proportion out your look.  Opt for skinny or boot cut jeans (or chinos) if you’re going with mid to low rise. If you’re wearing high rise jeans, you can go with flared denim. Just make sure they are slender through the thighs.  Another great option is a fabulous skirt! Here you can add a little volume if you’d like to help balance out the volume of you sleeves. But always choose one that cinches in at the waist.  Example: these fabulous flares, a preppy corduroy skirt, classic denim skirt, a pretty midi, or maxi skirt

Have Fun

My biggest tip for styling fall statement sleeves is to have fun! These tops are all about having fun and seriously, they are a blast to wear. So style them how you love and rock them girl friend!
