From Proenza Schouler to Eckhaus Latta, a number of labels sent out iterations of Vetements-inspired extra-long sleeves for fall that, while cool-looking, would not be conducive to certain important daily rituals — eating, for instance. Now readers, we know what you're thinking: "Why not just roll them up?" Sure you could, but letting them hang for an oversized silhouette is just what designers intended this season. If you're hoping to give the street smart look a try, consider styling it with a pretty, feminine skirt as seen at Sies Marjan, or with a matching tonal pair of trousers like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen did at The Row.
