From bell and balloon to ruffled and tied, sleeves have taken a new shape this season, turning our once basic button-downs and off-the-shoulder tops into true statement pieces. I was a little wary of this trend at first, thinking it could totally throw off my petite figure—but boy was I wrong. Once I tried it, I instantly knew why so many fashion it-girls were backing it—it’s the perfect way to add some personality to your everyday looks without going too over the top (pun intended).
French-girl style is something that all us fashion lovers aim to achieve. There’s an ease and coolness about the way they carry themselves that perfectly translates into their everyday attire. Because my personal style leans more casual, I tend to take a lot of inspiration from the Parisian streets. Even though I may never quite embody that je ne sais quoi that comes so naturally to them, I can try to emulate it through my wardrobe.
