Do you think you can name that sleeve? 


Caption: SLEEVES IN ALL SHAPES & LENGTHS ARE THE TALK OF THE RUNWAY!

Fashion pundits have described this season as “The Return of the Sleeve.” With names like Lantern, Kimono, Flutter, Balloon, and Bell, sleeves in all shapes and lengths are the talk of the runway. For those of us with less than perfect figures, this is good news. From camouflaging flabby upper arms to adding balance to a bottom heavy figure, sleeves can be an effective way to disguise figure flaws.

Can you tell the difference between a Lantern sleeve , a Balloon sleeve , and a Bell sleeve? In an article entitled What’s That Sleeve Called?, Cynthia Nellis the Women’s Fashion expert for About.com explains the latest sleeve styles. The article features a picture gallery with photos straight from the runway shows, as well as tips on how to utilize the trend to its most flattering effect.

In the words of Cynthia Nelms, “If men liked shopping, they’d call it research” … So test your fashion I.Q. and then go out and conduct some “research” of your own.
