Don't skimp on the sleeves

The one thing that I hate is a too tight sleeve. I like my sleeves with loads of volume, I like sleeves that allow my arms to breath. I only had a chance to catch up with the last of PFW shows this evening and I was very happy to see beautiful voluminous sleeves in the Elie Saab, Louis Vuitton and Paul & Joe collections. I'll have some sleeves, please. Not too tight!

Are big sleeves your thing or do you prefer them tight, oh so tight?

P.S. I got my first ever pay packet today! Can you guess what I will be doing tomorrow...? It starts with S and ends with g. Let the good times begin!

P.P.S. Thank God it's Friday!!

I have many issues with sleeves. I like mine to be snug but the armpit part has to fit just right. I love the top middle picture!

Have fun!

Ashley said...

I have a big chest, so if my sleeves are too billowy, I look totally shapeless and gross. So, I like tight sleeves! But, I really like how some of these look here.

Have a great time shopping! :D

herwaisechoice said...

Love balloon sleeves too but sadly they look ridiculous on me. The Paul and Joe collection is so chic, esp that look on the left with the yellow top and white shorts!

Have a great day shopping!!! Nothing better than a day of guilt-free buying :P

Have a lovely day!

I love the silhouette of the tops in the third row, with the more fitted body and long, voluminous sleeves gathered at the wrist!

Isabelle said...

Fatiha Faulzi said...

Big puffy sleeves are sometimes preferred although i actually don't quite mind tight sleeves too.

Voluminous sleeves are great when ur hair is too long and thin (L) you let your hair dance with your sleeves and it'll make you look SEXY

Oh puffy sleeves... I love them so. Unfort I'm five foot nothing so I look like a bad Shakespearean actress in them - so hard to pull off!
