New Pope, new trend? Bishop Sleeves!
The New Pope! Pope Francis
Has the electing of the Pope influenced fashion? The Pope; in the Catholic Faith, is believed to be one of the holiest of holiest! But his influence is more than just his holy nature, it’s also in his total presentation! Pope Benedict XVI’s retired from his position as Pope at age 85, which caused a news frenzy! That same frenzy soon soared around the world; and left people asking, who would be elected the new Pope? A situation like this hasn’t happened in the last 600 years! We now have the answer to this delima, Pope Francis has officially taken his place and I think he’ll be great! He is the second Latin Pope in history; they’re usually European. The Pope wears long beautiful robes, some with a large cape thrown over his sholders and others with bishop sleeves. Has his holiness set a trend? The bishop sleeve is and unexpected trend and what’s hot for 2013? The Pope’s image and statue is what we all strive for, prestigious, opulent and with a simple change in sleeve, we to can share the feeling.

The Bishop Sleeve: Here are some examples of how you can get that opulent feeling for spring; wear a maxi day dress with a Bishop sleeve. This look makes you feel like the elegant woman you are, soft to the touch! Especially when your bishop sleeves have slits in them, it makes for a nice flow against a spring breeze. Try it out and mix it up! I think we can expect to see a lot of exagerated sleeves this season.
