Shop the Look:
Tops with dramatic oversized shoulders are this season’s new statement sleeve. While it’s pretty much a love/hate thing and it’s not really a new trend, the new puff sleeved tops have a modern and futuristic twist this spring, very different to the 80’s style. The voluminous, dramatic silhouette can be tricky to style, but I have some tricks up my
puffed sleeve and ideas on how to wear puff sleeves:
- Add a belt. Being it corset or a wide or tie, a belt will create a feminine silhouette and bring balance to the oversized shape of the sleeves.
- Up oversized, down slim. If you are wearing a voluminous top, then opt for a slimming bottom also for balance. These bottoms can be feminine skirts and fitted jeans or trousers.
- High-waisted. If you’d rather skip the belt, then opt for high-waisted straight-legged jeans or wide legged trousers. Trust me, it’s a perfect match.
