How to wear the extended sleeve

Ah trends, they may not be the best for practicality but dang do they know how to pull a gal in. The latest? The Extended Sleeve. Not just about exceeding the average length, oh no, the extended sleeve also takes in the form of volume and ruffles, almost making it hard to get about your day to day. Almost.

First coming into our lives late A/W16 by the holy grail of Vetements (is there anything they can't do?) the sleeve is also taking over our street style, with volumes of eh, volume strutting it around NYFW. Need proof? Check out just some of the many ways to wear the extended sleeve. Look Ma! No hands!
