What You Can and Cannot Do in Oversized Sleeves
It all starts with a bit of irony, and a bit of cheek. When a designer throws all caution to the wind, and decides to go against the grain we get a trend that seems outlandish at first; like oversized sleeves!
Labels like Marques’ Almeida, Toga, Balenciaga and closer home Dhruv Kapoor, have all helped us warm up to this seemingly impractical trend.
Here’s an easy guide on employing them to great, cinematic effect:
Do use them when you’re about to make a strong declaration. Even better if it’s a stop-in-your-tracks sort of discovery.
Don’t wear them if you’re going to eat like Tina Fey. (By all means, eat.)
Do wear them when you attempt to master the fine art of air drumming.
Don’t let anyone get away with behaving like Robert Downey Jr. Set a strong example.
Do roll up your sleeves, and confront that workplace bully. No better way to make an impact.
Don’t let cats get too cosy.
Do believe in science. Don’t fall for that party trick!
Don’t fear for your safety. There’s no harm in keeping a lightsaber and/or pepper spray tucked in. For emergencies, obviously.
Do get used to compliments. Something tells us you’ll be fetching plenty!
