Will You Wear The Extra Long Sleeve?

Do Your Sleeves Hang Low?

On Sunday, Topshop presented its Spring 2016 collection full of sleeves that looked like they belonged on a boyfriend’s shirt. We have seen the boyfriend shirt that’s longer than normal, and the oversized sweaters that’s perfect for pairing with leggings in the winter, but what are these oversized sleeves about?  Well, apparently everyone at NYFW got the memo, because from the New York streets to the front rows the sleeves hung low. I guess this is a go -as long as we aren’t dating back to oversized shoulders, no bueno.

Wait before you go to GoodWill to find a top 2x your size? Here’s how to pull off the look: First, make sure that your shoulders fit. The seam must start where your shoulder does. None of that oversized-all-around thing. Proper tailoring on the top is key. Second, the sleeves have to be long enough that they cover your palm, but not so long that your fingertips can’t peek through when you reach out. If you find that then you’re good!

Try this trend out for fall. Just make sure you avoid saucy dishes at dinner.
