Norma Blouse: Friday 24/04

Sleeves that stand out are in! And Norma knows that being big can be better. The lavish three-quarter length balloon sleeves are full at the shoulders, have puffed wrists and gathered seams. This original short V-neck blouse effortlessly steals the show when paired with a high waisted skirt, jeans or trousers.

Fabric advice

All kinds of fabrics work, but it goes without saying that your statement sleeves will stand out more in a stiffer fabric, such as poplin, raw silk, nylon, organza, etc. Also, organza blouses worn with a spaghetti strap top underneath are a huge trend right now. Would you still prefer a lighter fabric? You can turn the Norma into something a little flowier and less ‘big’ by choosing a cotton voile, muslin or a thin viscose.
