Next Up and Coming Trend - the Extra Long Sleeves

The trend first started with Shayne Oliver at Hood By Air, and later on with Demna Gvasalia at Vetements. Just as we thought that all the inconvenience that extra long sleeves brought about will cause the trend to die down, it didn't. On the contrary, the extra long sleeves got bigger this fall.

The Spring/Summer 2017 runway shows showed that the slouchy silhouettes of the extra long sleeves were still going strong, and in fact, they were seen all over on the street styles.

I'm not sure if this trend will cause gloves to go obsolete in winter, but it sure does keep our cold hands warm when we travel to the cooler climates. But then again, with our obsessions with checking our smartphones every now and then, it sure is inconvenient having to pull up the sleeves all the time.

But I do love that lengthy and slouchy touch the extra long sleeves give. Anyone else with me?
