Are flared sleeves still a thing?

...Because I might be into them. Impractical though they might be (especially for someone Jarv calls "the clumsiest person I know"), they're quite fun to shoot. Not sure I'll be joining the legions of people I've spotted sipping on coffees with giant flared sleeves that engulf half the arm, my arms aren't quite long or slender enough for that - I'm more in the 'muscular' category, if we're talking body type here - but I do quite like the idea of an extra long sleeve that flares slightly at the end (less so than these) as if to hang casually off the hand in a IDGAF sort of manner. Does that make sense? It does in my head.

Fishtail skirts on the other hand I have no reservations about whatsoever. I adore them. They make me nostalgic (for an era I never actually lived through) and if you're looking for something that gives you curves Beyonce would be envious of, then get your hands on one ASAP! I got this one from my mother's friend in Shanghai, but there are plenty of alternatives out there.

Get the look:

  1. Flared tops are my absolute favorite right now. Just hate eating with them because I always seem to get the sleeves dirty! Oh well.... This look is amazing on you!

  7. Stunning imagery! I particularly like the one featuring the guy charging into your shot haha - it works! I'm with you on appreciating flared sleeves (though a nightmare to eat with), and this red jumper looks gorgeous on you.
