Greetings ModLovers, and welcome to this week’s edition of Style Glossary! I took this opportunity to talk a little bit more about my new favorite shirt – The Dove Tail Blouse! Now, besides being simple with a retro flare, not to mention easy-to- match with everything, this sweet little number features this week’s term – bishop sleeves!
A bishop sleeve is characterized by a full sleeve, set into a standard-sized arm hole, and gathered into a banded cuff at the wrist. The look was first made popular in the 1850’s (talk about vintage!), and can also be called a “full bishop”. I love the vintage-inspired-secretary feeling it gives to almost any skirt.
What are your new fall favorites? Let me know! Thanks for reading, and as always, happy shopping!
