Is it just me or have M&S really upped their game this season? Every time I pop in store to grab some pea and wasabi dip I'm leaving with a new sartorial purchase in tow. First it was the red trousers which you can now purchase online here, and now it is the statement sleeve top that has kicked the ass of all other statement sleeve tops currently occupying my wardrobe.
I first got on board with oversized sleeves last summer and love how they can give a dressier spin to my every day denim. A little bit extrovert but still feeling like me, a ruffle or extra large cuff can be all that's required to take the fail safe jeans and shirt combo on to nights out or in this case date night attire. Ignoring the references to flamenco dancers this look was even given the thumbs up by my other half who would usually refer to my more daring of outfit choices as 'fun'.
I've worn this top during the day with wide cropped jeans and loved it just as much, but by adding the simple heels and earrings (which are now back in stock here) it makes for a really great evening look too. Also available in white it fits true to size and is much more comfortable than any other Bardot style tops I've worn. Just avoid any cuff dipping when reaching for the bowl of soy sauce at dinner.
