Cap sleeve:

Elbow-length sleeve: 

The elbow-length sleeves extend to the elbow or just below it, providing partial arm coverage.

Bell sleeve: 

Bell sleeves are characterized by their flared shape, which starts from the shoulder and widens towards the wrist, resembling a bell.

Bishop sleeve: 

Bishop sleeves are full-length sleeves that are gathered at the cuff and become voluminous, giving a graceful, draped appearance.

Lantern sleeve: 

These sleeves are full and puffed from the shoulder to the wrist, where they taper to a fitted cuff, resembling a lantern shape.

Puff sleeve: 

Puff sleeves have volume and are gathered near the shoulder, creating a puffed appearance. They can be short or long in length.

Juliet sleeve: 

This sleeve style is inspired by Renaissance fashion. It is tight-fitting from the shoulder to the elbow and then flares out dramatically, often ending in a ruffled or gathered cuff.

Raglan sleeve: 

Raglan sleeves extend from the collar to the underarm in one continuous piece, diagonally connecting to the neckline. They are commonly found in sportswear and casual attire.

Kimono sleeve: 

Kimono sleeves are wide and open, extending from the neckline to the lower hem of the garment, without a distinct armhole.

Cold shoulder sleeve: 

In this style, the shoulder area is left open while the sleeve extends from the upper arm, creating a cutout or exposed shoulder effect.
