Going To Great Lengths

Because you know we're all about that sleeve, 'bout that sleeve...
|

When it comes to fashion and great personal style, proportion is important. Knowing what fits your body is important. But occasionally, fashion likes to fool around, challenging everything we thought we knew about it and, quite literally, blowing things out of proportion. We’re talking clothes that are made five sizes too big and five inches too long. (Who remembers the Celine look I wore a couple of seasons ago at Milan Fashion Week? I was sweeping the streets with that one.) Extra-flare pants, extra-wide collars and – the topic of discussion at present – EXTRA-LONG SLEEVES. It’s all over the street style scene – we saw plenty of it at Fashion Week Australia‘s runways – and thanks to labels like Vetements and Ellery, too-long sleeves are almost guaranteed instant street style cred.

The best thing about it is you don’t need a Vetements sweater or an Ellery shirt to do this too-long sleeve thing. Demna Gvasalia makes sick clothes, but a very oversized sweater or shirt from your brother’s/father’s/boyfriend’s closet could do the same. Or, if you’re willing to burn just a tiny hole in your wallet, there’s this, this and this.

Keep those sleeves long, uncuffed and unfolded, my friends. If your mum and dad wonder what the hell you’re going wearing something that is clearly going to get in the way of anything that requires you to use your hands, you’re on the right track. Sure, you’ll need to fold them up slowly when it’s time to drink that bowl of soup, but c’mon, we’ve all done crazier things in the name of fashion, haven’t we?
