80's are back.  When I first heard this I cringed, the 80's are my least favorite decade in fashion.  The styles were so out there and gaudy with neon colors, perms and ill fitting clothing (MC Hammer pants).  Even after seeing the Saint Laurent sparkle boot during fashion week my feelings haven't changed much.  However, when details are taken from the decade and simplified, and modernized, I can get behind them.  Like this simplified statement sleeve with a wrap waist.   In addition to being "on trend", it creates a flattering silhouette. The volume of the sleeves paired with a slim waist, creates the illusion of a smaller med section.  I chose to pair this H&M balloon sleeve top with high waisted denim and a monogram belt.  This style can be overwhelming, so I recommend keeping the look simple.  Here are some other ways that I plan on wearing it:

Statement Sleeve Top + A Line Mini Skirt + Ankle Boots

For Office |

Statement Sleeve Top + High Waist Skinny Trousers + Patterned Pump

I met with Aaron Cheng at the Brattle Book Shop in Boston to shoot this look.  It was so much fun and we ended up getting quite the audience too.
