So… This Is How We Wear Our Shirts Now

Amanda Stavropoulos

I’ve had three friends text me this week to ask “where do I buy a shirt with extra-long sleeves?” That would be an odd question if it weren’t for Anna Quan—the Australian designer behind the exaggerated (and monogrammed) shirt cuffs you’ve been seeing everywhere this year.

The unique shirt style has been adopted by street stylers around the world, popping up everywhere from Fashion Week Australia, all the way to Copenhagen Fashion Week and it’s no mystery why the shirt has become street style’s latest favourite. It’s long, oversized, and structured sleeves are the updated version to the floaty flared sleeves we’ve been seeing the past few seasons. This feels more elevated and a step forward. Plus, it makes fashion-forward office dressing an absolute breeze.

While Anna Quan set the wheels in motion for this trend, we’ve spotted other designers embracing the longer sleeve length and we’re obsessed. If you can’t wait to give it a try yourself, but you’re not ready to splurge, trial our style hack instead. Borrow your dad/husband/boyfriend/brother/roommate’s white shirt, unbutton the cuffs, and let the sleeves hang loose. Too easy.
