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!

THE CLASSIC

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 d├ęcolletage so beautifully, and the tighter body creates a far more flattering silhouette when paired with the bigger sleeves.

THE JUMPER

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.

THE SHORT SLEEVE

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,
