The IT List: Dolman Sleeves

A fall trend we love this year is the dolman sleeve top.  The perfect dolman top has extra large arm holes and cinches off in a tight cuff around the elbow, bonus points if it hangs off the shoulder.  These tops are comfy and can be flattering to any body shape.  With roots in both yoga wear and 80’s fashion, it’s no wonder this style is a hit.

If you want to try this look, finding the right silhouette for your body shape is important.  While the dolman is an especially forgiving silhouette for large upper arms, it can swallow-up shorter torsos.  To avoid looking frumpy, pick thinner, drapey fabrics over chunky knits for a slimmer look.  The jersey off the shoulder look to the right would be flattering on any body type!  Pair with a statement necklace and skinny jeans to dress it up, yoga pants or leggings for lounging or a trip to the gym.

What do you think about this trend?  Would you wear a dolman top as is or layered with a tank top?
