Statement sleeves are very much on trend right now, but it’s one I typically steer away from. With my body type, I’m not looking to add more volume to my shoulders or chest area.
That’s why I was thrilled to find this blouson sleeve raglan pullover at Evereve.
The raglan shoulder seams have a way of softening broad shoulders, and the volume in the blouson sleeves is closer to the waist, so it actually works out well for those of us who are more well-endowed.
And isn’t the pointelle knit on the sleeves so pretty and feminine?
The bodice is a shaker style knit, and it has a flattering wide v-neck. The 21″ length is on the shorter side, so it’s best paired with higher rise jeans.
I would say this sweater runs true to size, although mine fits a little tighter than it does on the models on the website, so you could probably size up if in between.
To offset the volume in the sleeves, I wore this sweater with my Mother Insider crop flares.
Because of the shorter length, I can wear a crop length jean and still get a good vertical balance, but ankle flares or maybe even full-length flares would work too.
I’ve talked about these jeans many times over the past year, so I’ll spare you all the details, but they are super soft and stretchy and comfortable, and I highly recommend them… especially if you can snag them on sale.
I wore cognac espadrille wedges and carried a complementary handbag.
This is the type of outfit I’d wear out to lunch with friends; in fact, I’m meeting friends for lunch on Saturday, and this might be just the ticket!
