Call it bell, ruffle, tiered ruffle, flounce or tie sleeve, the statement sleeve will instantly elevate your look for fall! Statement sleeve tops were everywhere this past spring and summer, come fall our best-loved sleeve detail has found itself attached to our favorite cool weather piece, the sweater. From cardigans and toppers to pull-overs and tunics, this seasons statement sleeve is attached to just about anything.
While shopping the Cashmere Sale in Burlingame earlier this week, I came across two sweaters I had to add to my fall wardrobe; a ribbed pullover with tiered ruffle sleeves and a boxy boyfriend style pullover with tied sleeves (above). With the exception of fabulously fun sleeves, these pieces were classic in every way! With today’s sudden drop in temps, I was able to style up my new black ribbed ruffle sleeve sweater. Wanting the sweater to shine, I kept the rest of my outfit simple, opting for dark flare jeans, black block heel booties and silver accessories for a casual Friday work look.
You’ll find today’s look everywhere from Target to Bergdorf’s, but you’ll need to search it up multiple ways in order to find your favorite. I searched 4 key words when looking for a few to link up down below; bell, ruffle, flounce, tie, statement sleeve – each producing different results. Big sleeves may require a change up in outerwear so be prepared. Faux fur vests, sleeveless coats, cocoon coats, puffer vests, kimono capes are make beautiful companions to show off your sleeves. I opted for some strange posing in order to show you my sleeve detail…try to just roll with it, LOL!

Well, you answered my question. I was thinking my sleeves would be in my soup bowl.
Ha Ha Carole! I have had my sleeves in my soup bowl on more than one OCCASION. THis particular piece though will remain out of the soup or my plate…I’ll be looking for more with this fab feature in the future!
Hope you are enjoying your WEEKEND! Suzanne
I love that sweater on you! Looking fabulous! And I like your points about outerwear. Definitely something to think about!
Thank you! It’s my new favorite, now if it would just cool off a bit. This cashmere is getting no visibility in this 90 degree heat we are having! And the outerwear, it’s an all new ball game! Loved catching up with you today! Let’s do it again real soon! xx
