The 1930's

A trend that seems to have made it's way back into modern times is statement sleeves.  


This type of trend is most popular in the fall and winter time due to the colder weather.  It's a way for people to only wear one layer of clothing, in their workplace, schools, and even in the comfort of their own homes, while still making a statement.  They can easily be paired with a bold statement necklace.

In the 1930's, a popular trend that took place was bringing attention to the shoulders.  Whether that be through shoulder pads, butterfly sleeves, banjo sleeves, etc., people loved bringing attention to their shoulders.

This trend took place directly after World War II, when fashion, for both men and women, pointed directly at the exaggerated shoulder.

Something that I have noticed in modern day fashion, is that this trend has never really gone away.  While prancing through a thrift store, or even popular modern-day vogue clothing stores, these trends have never truly died.  Ruffles on shorter sleeves has made it's statement in fashion, as well.
