STYLE GURU STYLE: Dare to Flare

Sleeves are funny business: short sleeves, long sleeves, three-quarter sleeves, tight sleeves and loose sleeves. There are many variations of the infamous sleeve. Most, if not all of us, have worn sleeves in the winter season to cover our bare arms, but lately, sleeves are making a breakthrough and seeping into the summer seasons as well. For the past three years, I’ve seen the sleeve in many prom dresses. It not only brings detail and sophistication to the dresses that I’ve seen but brings elegance as well.

In the Rachel Zoe resort 2016 collection, Zoe’s common aesthetic is the sleeve. Zoe showcases the sleeve in many dresses, jackets, styles, lengths, fabrics and colors. The sleeves bring in an aura of chic and utter coolness; the ensembles all have a free-spirited/flower child feel to them. The sleeves in this collection also call attention to the recent popularity of the style itself.

Here I am wearing a dress that showcases a variation on the sleeve-the flare. The dress highlights the simplicity and beauty the sleeve creates, which probably explains why this dress was extremely simple with only the V-neck lace as a detail. In order to maintain the simplicity of the dress, I paired it with a beige Louis Vuitton bag and wedged heels. The only accessories seen with this dress are the many rings I stacked on and paired with a Rolex watch.

Get My Look: 1. Any crop top/dress/blouse with long sleeves. 2. Heels/sneakers/sandals that would add simplicity to the look. 3. Light-colored lipstick to prevent the outfit from feeling too boring.
