The Look: Extra Long Sleeves

extra long sleeves trend




If you've been coming to 'The Daily Luxe' for sometime, you will know that I'm as much as a sucker for a flare as Disco Stu. 

But recently, the flare has taken a slightly longer and less voluminous direction: the extra long sleeve. From knuckle grazers, to finger-tip skimmers, these extra long blouses are the item to invest in this summer.

Read on for all this long, flowy goodness and my top tips on how to style extra long sleeves...

  If there was one street style trend at Australian Fashion Week that took the crown, it was oversized sleeves. Draping low and un-cuffed towards the fingertips, this is the newest look that has stemmed for fashions love affair with the masci-femme.

Being girly little me, I opted for this H & M lace neck, oversized sleeve blouse. Feeling inspired by what I'd seen on the streets of Sydney, I picked up this Victoriana beauty from H & M on the last day between shows. Yes: H & M EXCITES me, as we have such limited shops here in Cairns. My inner British self was laughing at me and my H & M- fueled excitement.

Although you might be like H & M, smaysh and M...I am seriously loving this blouse, as it covers two looks I was shopping for in one piece: Victoriana and ultra long sleeves.

I balanced out the proportions of this vintage-y shirt with my button-up denim skirt and clog heels. And, as I feel totally naked if I'm not dripping in accessories, I added this stunning brass filigree pendant and beaded bracelet from Bo Boutique*.

Are you wanting to add some arm length to your life? Here's my top tips...

My Five Tips For Styling Extra Long Sleeves
1. Balance them out with a short skirt or shorts. Opt for a hemline that skims your legs at the same point as your sleeves. It gives you the illusion of long legs.
2. Throw- off oversized sleeves and tops with slim leather pants or jeans. Pencil skirts would work a wonder too.
3. Layer under jumpers and let the sleeves peek out. Let them be a chic statement accessory. 
4. Combine a fitted, long sleeve blouse with culottes or flared pants. This will create a balance, on-trend silhouette.
5. Add extra frilly femininity by topping your shirt with a tiered or pleated dress. As worn by this fashionista below, snapped by me at Australian Fashion Week.

  34. Dear Rachel, so sorry that H&M are so rare there ... but you got nevertheless the perfect H&M blouse with the fantastic sleeves! No wonder such sleeves have been the trend during the FW in Australia, although in my opinion I think this is an extremely cool trend. Love it so much how you styled your blouse, the denim skirt and the shoes with the wood sole are also both absolutely my taste.
    Enjoy the new week!
