Trend Alert: The Single Sleeve

The life of the single gal can be lonely. But there are no tears here. Single gal, meet single sleeve. Dramatic, sexy, and ready to party. Just look to Jada (see left) for inspiration. But I'm confused. You loved Alexis Bledel's Mischen one sleeve LBD, but not Maria Sharapova's Lanvin. What gives? Single sleeves for everybody!

i'll tell you what the difference was: maria's dress was butt ugly and looked sewn together by a child. alexis' dress was adORable! sooo cute with the short sleeve. while jada looks good, i dont like the long sleeve. it's very early 2000s!

It only works if you have great arms. If you have not so tone arms or flabby arms, Not a good idea.;) Jada just looks great. She looks healthy and great arms :)

Personal Opinion time! I liked Alexis' because it wasn't a long sleeve...the long sleeve to me just goofs with the eye, it makes one arm look very skinny and the other looks bigger to me (depending on the color of the dress). Alexis' was closer to one shoulder than one sleeve, so it didn't mess with my head.

This was Flo Jo's thing and I haven't liked it since. And what does being single have to do with the single sleeve?... I'm single so I only get one d@mn sleeve? WTH! lol'

I like single sleeves too! But I do prefer that it should look like part of the dress instead of being the stark contrasting colour.

I hate this trend. No matter how well-made the rest of the dress is, I still can't justify only wearing a dress (or shirt) with one sleeve. Sorry, I need my symmetry when it comes to clothes!

Long-sleeve bad! Short-sleeve good!

I only like this when the sleeve is a short-sleeved one...I hate the way it looks with the one long sleeve.

Love this trend, but I think it can look odd if it's not done right. IMHO, the single sleeve looks best on a dress that is more form fitting. Jada's dress is cute!

Alexis' dress is a SHORT sleeve that is obviously part of the dress unlike Sharapova's random, black, LONG sleeve.

Love this trend! (When it's done properly, of course.) FTR, it's the dress, not the wearer - Maria's look was HIDEOUS, and would have been on anyone.

I used to have a few shirts like this from 2001 or so... too bad I got rid of them! I love the T-Bags dress, so cute!
