Lately I have gravitated towards incredibly huge sleeves. Just this past week, I picked up a little BCBG kimono sleeve sweater in really bright pink. You should see the sleeves on this thing. I could cradle my senior dog in one of them lest he get tired. His own designer hammock. Or perhaps provide built-in swaddling for a baby.
At any rate, I’ve gone from feeling a little self-conscious about the look to adoring it. It exudes drama and adds elegance to the simplest of trousers. In the past few months, I picked up an amazing buy on a Halston Heritage dolman sleeve dress, a zebra printed v-neck kimono short-sleeve silk dress by Karlie, and now this BCBG turtleneck that I could hide snacks in with ease. I could hide aforementioned baby’s entire diaper bag in there. Have I mentioned that these sleeves are abnormally large and that I love them?
Long story short, work this look hard with some good posture and simple, structured accessories. Kimono sleeves are a centerpiece not to be messed with.
P.S. Komodo dragons have nothing to do with kimonos (to my knowledge).
