Dear LUXYMOM™ – How Do I Wear The Statement Sleeve Trend


One of spring and summer’s hottest trends is the statement sleeve – but how do you wear this trend without it overwhelming you – especially if you have a small frame? My friend Elysse of the Instagram account @elyssedw is a PRO at rocking this look and styling it in so many ways – for day or night.

If you haven’t read my other article about Elysse’s insane style – go here to get some outfit ideas for everyday and special occasions. But for more on this trend, see the two photos below, as well as my picks that you can shop right now.

Elysse perfectly pairs this pink statement sleeve top with ripped skinny jeans for a balanced look.

This dressier look is stunning with a skirt for an evening out.

Elysse’s Tip for Wearing Statement Sleeves

Elysse is a pro at styling a sleeve, and her take on wearing the style is this: “While statement sleeves are definitely more overwhelming on the arms, to maintain a sleek look I tend to find pieces where the body of the top is not boxy, so it’s more form-fitting, and then I like to pair it with skinny denim or more body fitting skirts. It’s all about balance! Since I am short, 5’3″, when I wear a statement sleeve I like to also wear heels or wedges, so my body appears more elongated.”

Today, I’m sharing my favorite tops that you can shop now – inspired by Elysse, the Queen of this trend, as far as I’m concerned.
