If fashion's It girls are any indication, these days, hands are way overrated. Women like Sandara Park, Liz Uy, and Kim Jones are foregoing practicality for attention to detail—when it comes to sleeves, the longer and more voluminous, the better. We're talking lengths that extend past fingertips, fabrics that billow away, and sleeves that start slim before flaring out.

Here's how 8 women are interpreting the trend:
