Third, on our list is the grand pleated sleeve. These sleeves aren’t attached to the top part of your dress. They are the top part of your dress. Talk about being grand. But if you don’t want too much pleat you can start them from wherever you want, from the neck or from the chest. A flowy material is usually preferred to keep it from puffing up too much but if you wanna make a statement break the rules and go for a material like tulle.

The Wing Sleeve (Bell Sleeve)

Wing Sleeves are most commonly known as bell sleeves. Why do I call it wing sleeves? Put your hands up, you’ll know. You’re going to be on Cloud nine on your wedding day anyway so might as well be equipped :p. These sleeves will look glorious while you pose like a queen from the Renaissance. The silkier the material is the better it’ll look. Again, you can wear it of any length you want but a long sleeve is most preferred.

You deserve the cape for being the superwoman you are! Cape sleeves are a very recent trend and have quickly caught everyone’s attention. The mother of the dragon knows it well. I used to often wonder how cape sleeves would work with dupattas until I realized there’s no need for one. A dupatta is our very own Indian cape after all. And Oh my! The final look? Classy on the edge. It’s so classy that it’s the mother of dragons go-to look!
