pleats & high grace

Trumpet sleeves have been around but for this trend to resurface in Fall of 2016 is so great! H&M did good with this top. It’s got a romance and ethereal feel. Another thing I love about this blouse is how versatile it will become in the seasons to follow. It’s got a neutral color, which will make pairing it with other pieces easy.

What really drew me to this trend was the memory it brought back. When I was in middle school, I owned this trumpet sleeve top with colors of a burnt sunset. I absolutely loved it and still have pictures. Granted, the sleeve has evolved much here with small pleats, giving it elegance.

If Grace Kelly were here today, she would would be absolutely breathtaking in this. It definitely screams Modern Victorian.
 Thanks so much for reading! See you in the next post.
