Sleeve Slits

Flared sleeves were all the rage last year, but now it's all about the slit. Might we suggest upping your bangle and bracelet game to play off of the fresh silhouette.

Foldover Waists

Boring waistlines have been banished for the season in favor of sharp fold over options. You won't be able to wear belts with these, though, so make sure you've got the best tailor on hand, just incase.
