Scrunch up the Sleeves!

Take a tip from the runway and add cool to an outfit this season by scrunching up the sleeves!

This is an especially convenient trend with all the super long sleeve shirts on the runway used for layering (as in the Luella and Marc by Marc Jacobs above).

Plus, it allows you to skip the hassle of getting the sleeves tailored if your arms are too short for a cardigan. You can look effortlessly cool and still remain ladylike as seen above from Chanel and Diane von Furstenburg.

But we already knew one could scrunch up the sleeves of tees and cardigans. What I had never thought about however, was the scrunching of the sleeves of the blazers as seen on the looks from Laurel above. And I LOVE it, because it allows you to look both put together and effortlessly cool.

So have fun with this little observation everyone!

The Laurel outfits are really cute, but what bothers me about scrunching is "what goes up must come down." Maybe 3/4 sleeves are a way of approximating the look without the hassle of the sleeves always slipping down. Perhaps permanently gathering the sleeves into a scrunched position would work even better.

I actually don't think scrunching is a new thing. Been happening since the 80s. It is a bit of a hassle scrunching blazer sleeves coz they easily unscrunch.
Love your blog, btw. Will be linking you from mine and would love it if you linked me as well.

one of the comments is so right on. scrunching up sleeves isnt a "new" thing... but, think about it, fashion is all about recycling ideas and making it new again isnt it? i've been scrunching up my sleeves since college days and im glad its back though! hehe
