The sleeveless trend may seem a tad unusual for our winter looks as we usually opt for ensconcing ourselves in layers of wool, down and weatherproofed fabrics. When you consider the layering and accessorising possibilities however it is a fun trend to follow and when styled intelligently can give a nod to a spring trend in winter’s darkest moments. Designers such as Paul Costello and Balenciaga among others sent sleeveless outerwear boldly down the catwalk for SS11.
When leafing through December’s InStyle I spied my favourite stylist and editor Natalie Hartley looking amazing in a Tommy Hilfiger sleeveless trench. This inspired me to peruse the possibilities available on both the high and lower ends my favourite online shopping haunts. This trend definitely looks great when cinched with a belt and be clever with your layers to avoid a bulky silhouette.
Do you dare to sleeve it out this winter…go on you know you want to!
