Y’all I’m on the HUNT for some cheap spring tops, and I’m happy to report that my local Zara is overflowing with blouses and crop tops galore, all featuring the season’s biggest trend: statement sleeves. Be they oversized and exaggerated, puffy and feminine or frilly and ruffled, sleeves that stand out are a huge trend for spring and summer, and I’ll be damned if I don’t fill my closet with all my sleeve-related fantasies! I deserve this!
If the idea of a bold sleeve scares you, fear not. While you can absolutely turn up in a funky pattern, unique silhouette, and dramatic sleeve, there are ways to rock the trend that are a bit more, well, turned-down. Zara has a ton of gorgeous, crisp white blouses that are basically the mullets of office shirts: business in the bodice, party on the sleeves. Pair them with dark-wash denim or your go-to work trousers for a professional fit that’s still fun. Or, go wild with a more adventurous take and let the compliments roll in.
The best part about Zara’s statement-sleeved beauties in particular? They’re all under $50! A quick scroll through their website yields tons of lust-worthy options, so I decided to gather up a few of my faves below to tempt you. I don’t want to rock this trend alone! If statement sleeves are right up your alley, you’ve come to the right place, and if you aren’t convinced it’s a look worth trying, read on and prepare to be swayed.
