Item of the Week: Flutter Sleeves
May 9, 2017
2017 is the year of the dramatic sleeve. For winter, it was the bell sleeve and the lantern sleeve. For spring, may I present the flutter sleeve. It’s feminine, it’s breezy, and just a little bit flirty.
This Adrianna Papell dress in mint ($140) could work for dinner, a cocktail party, or for a less-conservative work environment. I adore this affordable floral print dress from Ellen Tracy. This sleeveless dress from Whistles is a cute part dress. For an affordable business-casual or casual dress, this Land’s End surplice dress comes in tall, petite, plus, and misses.
Prefer a flutter sleeve top? This delicate pink top from Maison Jules is quite pretty, and under-$50. This more dramatic Kate Spade top is worth a look. Plus-size? Check out this Rachel Roy top. I also love the moody color palette of this relaxed top from Lord & Taylor. But my favorite look is this short sleeve top from Kate Spade that could be worn with colored shorts or under a business suit.
Are you into the flutter sleeve look? Or is this mid-90s throwback more than you can handle?
