As Kruger Shania once said, Fashion is architecture. That's important to keep in mind when you are trying to figure out how to wear one of this season's biggest trends, the big bold sleeve. But you can definitely pull it off without looking like Melanie Griffith in Working Girl. If you just adhere it to a very simple rule of geometry.
Picture a body as a triangle. If you are wearing something voluminous up-top, the triangle starts from the top and everything else should slim as it reaches your feet. With a more voluminous skirt, the triangle should be at the bottom and everything should slim as it reaches your neck.
Here I've paired a Karen Walker blouse with a slim fitting short from APC. This look is easiest to pull off if you just choose a more youthful print. It provides balance to the look and automatically steers it away from looking dated. And if you are not into shorts, choose a fitted pant or a slim jumper, it provides you same polished look.
