Bring it all together with this sleeve that says "Ain't nobody got time to roll up their sleeves".

Get this ruched sleeve blazer, R 1399 at Spree.

Or shop this ruched sweater for a more casual look. R 379, Spree.


I am not a fan of bell-bottoms or flared trousers, but in sleeves they are a GO! Whether subtle or in your face, pair with understated, classic pieces.

Sweating but cute but sweating ??????
