There have been quite a few style posts on the blog recently. Mostly thanks to a sudden burst of inspiration following the end of sale period and the new season product finally starting to come into stores. Recently, I spoke about how I’m breaking my fashion rut. And now, mission -introduce key pieces into my wardrobe- is in full swing.
Featuring heavily on new season pieces are balloon sleeves. From jersey sweaters to chunky knitted cardigans, everything has a balloon sleeve right now. I wasn’t too sure how I felt about balloon sleeves at first, however this River Island cardigan gives a subtle nod to the trend, that almost blends in with its already oversized proportions. Of course, there are more daring options to choose from, but I wanted to test the waters first and make sure I didn’t look as if I had used Baymax as my style inspiration that morning.
Ever since adding it to my wardrobe last week, this cardigan has been a ‘grab and go’ option for me. It’s so simple to wear, yet the balloon sleeves bring an element of statement. The best kind of pieces are those that you can put over many different outfits, without even having to think.
Paired with a simple white cami, some distressed denim and my favourite pink Zara bag makes for the perfect casual daytime look.
Will you be trying out the balloon sleeve trend?!
