Statement sleeves are having a major moment in the world of fashion, and what better way to make a fashion forward statement than with some exaggerated sleeves. In recent times, designers have been using sleeves in a variety of ways to enhance a look and ensure their collections are making a statement on the ramp. From balloon sleeves, to bell sleeves, to puff sleeves and exaggerated shoulder sleeves, there is so much variety now available and we want to try them all.
While we don’t have as an extensive wardrobe as Bollywood divas, we often browse through their Instagram pages for all the fashion inspiration and scoop we need on the latest trends. And while scrolling through the Instagram accounts of three Bollywood divas, we found that statement sleeves were really having a moment and we decided to decode their looks. In the recent past, Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Anushka Sharma have all sported statement sleeves.
The much-loved Anushka Sharma recently took to social media and shared a series of pictures of herself in a statement dress by fashion designer Sonam Parmar Jhawar and made more than just a statement. Anushka Sharma was clad in the white mini dress which featured over the top, exaggerated sleeves.The dress featured a checkered self-print and was finished off with a glossy sheen. The Zero actress kept her hair straight and parted in the middle.
Anushka Sharma opted for a subtle yet dramatic makeup look with brown smokey eyes, bronzed cheeks and a nude, matte lip. The starlet opted for lots of arm candy and wore her statement bracelets with a chunky watch and we think this look is totally working for her.
Sonam Kapoor has marked her niche in the Bollywood industry and is touted as the biggest style star of the industry. She often takes to her Instagram account and shares pictures of herself in her most fashion-forward looks and glimpses of her life with her fans and followers. Sonam Kapoor has regularly sported looks that serve as major style inspiration for the fashion fraternity.
Sonam Kapoor recently attended the Sharjah World Book Capital for which she sported a black coat dress which featured ruffled sleeves and a belt which cinched high at the waist. The dress featured a collar and buttoned down at the front and also featured some organza detailing layered at the bottom of the dress. The sleeves were extremely ruffled and the Khoobsurat actress teamed the dress with a pair of heeled ankle boots. Sonam Kapoor had her hair parted in the middle and tied back in a sleek bun and opted for subtle smokey eyes and an earthy-hued pout. Sonam Kapoor really knows how to push the boundaries when I comes to edgy dressing.
Kareena Kapoor needs no introduction when it comes to the art of dressing well and she is known in the industry for her chic and sophisticated sense of style. Having made her television debut this year with reality dance show, Dance India Dance, Kareena Kapoor has been serving some serious style inspo of late. Whether she steps out in her casual airport looks or gracing the red carpet in a glamorous look, this starlet most certainly leaves heads turning.
Kareena Kapoor has been in Australia recently where she sported a stunning dress, featuring some statement sleeves. The Michael Costella dress was adorned with sequins and sparkle all over and featured a low cut back and over the top flared sleeves; as well as a thigh-high slit. Kareena Kapoor had her tied back in a sleek bun and sans accessories and with dewy makeup made a dazzling statement.
