Statement Sleeves Help Achieve A Feminine And Sophisticated Look
By Jim Pile
When hearing the news that sleeved gowns were back in fashion, many brides-to-be may have reverted back to the idea of gowns that their mothers and grandmothers wore on their wedding days. While it’s true that sleeves can evoke a more modest, sophisticated feel, they can also be playful and ultra feminine at the same time, depending on the length and style. Dare to be brave by showing a little less skin and you may even feel more chic and sexy.
