Hot off the spring/summer 2020 catwalks, statement sleeve shirts are the trend you can wear already…
With new season upon us, it’s no surprise the fashion team are on the look out for fresh new trends. Luckily, London Fashion Week is a go-to when it comes to spotting the best new ‘it’ items, and we’ve found a winner. There’s a certain style of top that has been doing the rounds at the spring/summer 20 shows, and they all have one thing in common – statement sleeves.
Shirts and blouses have all got puffy OOT sleeves, and the best thing about the look is it’s already a key trend for autumn/winter this year. While Rejina Pyo put puff sleeve shirts on the catwalk, the likes of House of Holland and Mark Fast went one step further and opted for organza sheer styles. Whether you dress them down with jeans and trainers, or make them work for after dark by layering over a slip dress and mules, this is the trend you can get one step ahead of. Zara, & Other Stories and Ganni already have iterations you can try out. Scroll down to see our best ones…
Rejina Pyo was all about the statement separates. Giving a lesson in how to style the puff sleeve top – create the Rejina-style silhouette by belting at the waist and layering over a midi skirt. The dream outfit does exist.

The House of Holland show saw organza blouses layered over high neck tops. For autumn, go for long sleeves and use the layering technique with wide leg trousers and chunky trainers.
Granted, we won’t be wearing a bandeau top and skirt in day-to-day life, but what we’re taking from the Mark Fast show is the organza shirt worn as a jacket. Go for a colour-pop version and wear layered over a slip dress for a more wearable version of the catwalk look.
