I’m not sure how I feel about this one. I think I like it, but I can’t help being reminded of Pretty Woman. I mean, I thought Julia Roberts looked cute when Richard Grere took her out shopping and she wore them with his button down, but I’m not sure it works for normal people.

So here’s one trend I’m not sure I really see taking off. I understand fur coats, vests, trim, scarves, stoles etc, but I’m not sure I understand the allure of furry or feathery sleeves.
I think Michael Kors did it well (second from left on top). On her it looks more like an accent and more lady-like, but on the others, I can’t quite say the same.
I’m guessing this avant-garde look will stay in magazine editorials and may show up on some editors at runway shows, but I can’t see this look trickling down to the masses via Forever 21…
