The most noticeable fashion trend in Paris is a timeless one- the puffy and voluminous sleeve. This trend has been a classic European look for years and is still a steady style on the streets of Paris that comes in many different forms. I have found many examples of these throughout stores in Paris the past few weeks. In almost any store in Paris it is possible to find a sweater or some form of a top with a flowing or volumized sleeve. Many have a wide sleeve with a tight wrist, and others have an increasingly wide sleeve to the end. These sleeved pieces can be found in stores such as Zara, Pimke, and Naf Naf.These sleeves are a recognizable French symbol of fashion, a modern version of historical French dresses from the 19th century.
