The Puff Sleeve Edit

The puff sleeve trend is possibly one of my favourite things to ever happen to recent fashion – I think it’s such a flattering style for all body types and it makes even the most basic of tops super interesting. Whenever I wear puff sleeves I feel like the best combination of a boho babe, pirate and someone from the Victorian era – honestly, such a vibe.

I find this trend absolutely perfect for transitioning from winter to spring and spring to summer – it’s light and floaty but is still suitable for the cooler weather of spring.

Since this trend is becoming so popular, I thought I’d share with you my three favourite types of puff sleeve tops!


This style is probably one of the most common styles of puff sleeve tops I’ve seen, and I think it might just be my favourite. I find that the broderie anglaise details paired with the white makes this just the perfect top for spring/summer, and it can so easily be dressed up with a skirt or down with a simple pair of jeans.

What I love most about this top is the square neckline which shows off the décolletage so beautifully, and the tighter body creates a far more flattering silhouette when paired with the bigger sleeves.


Jumpers still feel fairly necessary in the UK right now – it’s definitely not warm enough to rock the t-shirts just yet! I do love the fact that the sleeves are 3/4 length, so it’s the perfect transitioning piece. I also love that this is a beautiful neutral-sand shade, working well with the desert tones trend that is so popular right now.

The puff sleeves on this jumper are a little more subtle, so this might be better for you if you’re just wanting to dip your toes into the trend. This also has a square neckline (can you tell that I’m a little obsessed with those?), which I just find to be one of the most flattering necklines.


Although it might not be t-shirt weather quite yet, you never know what’s around the corner. This is the perfect top to continue the puff sleeve trend into the summer – the cap sleeves give me a real Spanish vibe and I just want to take this outfit on holiday.

This is another top with a square neckline – what a surprise – but I do really find this more flattering, especially paired with the bigger sleeves. I love that this has a tighter waist but is slightly more puffed around the bust, it definitely fits the gypsy top category and is a slightly more unique way of wearing the puff sleeve.

So those are my three favourite ways to wear the puff sleeve – I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments how you feel about this trend! See you next time,
