Ruffles

according to q memphis style blogger

Statement sleeves are all over the place this season.  They’ve rolled over from the spring/summer, and I don’t see them going anywhere anytime soon.  Ruffles, sequins, pleats…you name it! Sleeve embellishments have taken over!! I normally don’t do trends, but I took the plunge with this one since it was under $20.  I stuck with a neutral gray and black palette.  Of course, I had to add a statement necklace, and dark lip for a little edge.  I’ve actually worn this outfit twice.  Once to work with a different shoe and again for an evening outing with friends.  Simple but still makes a statement. Just how I like it.  What do you think?

Sweater : Nordstrom Rack (love this one, this one, and this one *on sale & in 3 colors) | Pants : Gap Maternity | Booties : Marc Fisher via TJMaxx (similar leather with clear heel) | Necklace : JCrew | Fur Bag : old (similar)

According to Q, statement sleeves just might be here to stay.  Whether subtle or over the top, the statement sleeve can be the perfect accessory for a night out with the boo, a GNO, or just because you feel a little “extra” in your spirit.  Grab a cool clutch, necklace, and boot to finish the look and have fun with it! A statement earring (sans the necklace) would also be a nice touch.  You can EASILY re-create this look with any color sweater!

Cheers to clothing that make a statement without the effort!
