Meat-lover? Meet the gigot sleeve...which is also aptly called the "leg-of-mutton" for its obvious resemblace to a sheep's hind stem. It'd be a falsehood to state that that ultra-popular, certified Instagram-famous Rotate minidress started it all—though we do give it credit for bringing this literally centuries-old lewk back into the scene—because, if you're the fashion history fiends we're always trying to be, you'll know that this statement arm was actually first spotted in the 1500s.
Characterized by a voluminous puff of material at the shoulder, a sharp taper down the elbow, and a snug fit towards the wrist, this dramatic silhouette returned en vogue in the romantic 1820s, and then again in the 1890s.
So, yeah, this is the pinnacle of nostalgia. Here, a dozen stylish girls who'll show you exactly how to don it in 2019!
