Despite the broad range of prints, patterns, palettes, textures, and silhouettes that dominated the Spring/Summer 2017 Fashion Week runways, designers across New York, London, Milan, and Paris could all agree on one major trend: the statement sleeve. This practically universal fascination trickled down from the cold-shoulder and bohemian trends seen this year, and the results for 2017 are wide-ranging and fantastic.

There were poet’s sleeves, bishop’s sleeves, gigot sleeves, sleeves trimmed with fluttering fabric accents, sleeves with cut-outs, and sleeves that were embellished, flared, or overly long. Every variety imaginable coursed down the runway, with plenty of references to the Romantic periods reworked for the modern era. Get acquainted with your new fashion focus for the year ahead by browsing the Spring/Summer 2017 shows’ best looks in Savoir Flair’s special sleeve edit, below.
