It’s prime summer season, and we’ve collected the one trend that has never gone out of style for us. Originating from the 80’s, puffed sleeves on a top, dress or bikini is one that has proven to be delightful to wear, no matter the occasion. That being said, no need to splurge on it given that some of our go-to retailers and designers launched the best ones a gal can get her hands on. And before you think it’s in the past, searches for the particular style have increased over 200% in the past months, so keep scrolling.
For the past years puffed sleeves were mostly seen on blouses, evening tops and dresses, but more recently the style has surpassed that category and entered swimwear, daytime ruffled prairie-style tops and more. In this edit we share some of our editor favorites that are both suited for summer time as well as year round.
From cropped satin blouses by high street connoisseur & Other Stories, to newcomer Redemption showcasing zebra stripes in the perfect black and white body suit, it’s hard to stop at just one. In most cases you’ll see the usual suspects – broderie anglaise styles with a little puffed sleeve and you won’t think much of it, let alone add it to your shopping cart, but we big to differ. Not only does this particular style of sleeve give your upper body section an instant upgrade, it also makes you look dressed up even if you’ve only packed the necessities. Too many times did we spend hours packing for a holiday only to forget some of our must-haves that can make an outfit go from 0 to 100. We’re not taking chances anymore – for the few holidays we do have planned (given the circumstances), we want to get it right without having to hop into a local store for a last minute outfit.
Look no further, and take your pick with the selection below, there’s guaranteed to be something in there for everyone.
