Shop the Look:
If you are looking for a not-so-basic piece with a twist to dress up your jeans, a puff sleeve blouse is always a good idea.
A lot of trends come and go and while I’m not one to follow them all or even most for that matter (especially this season with biker shorts, over-the-top cowboy boots, leopard print, and basically the tackiest trends of all decades reunited, even if there are ways to make them look passable, they are still a no-go for me), the puff sleeve blouse trend that’s hit the runways and streetstyle scene for several seasons now thanks to the likes of Jacquemus, A.W.A.K.E., and Rejina Pyo, is one of those trends that I feel form an integral part of my style, very much like ruffled pieces, and clear and structured silhouettes. In my opinion, even though it reemerged this season with delicate and peasant style details and despite puff sleeve blouses being an 80’s trend, I feel they are not only very modern, but they are the future. Why? They seem to have it all: they are the perfect mix of masculine with the power sleeves and feminine with the ultra figure flattering silhouette.
Furthermore, the great advantage of a puff sleeve blouse is that it can dress up something as simple as jeans and you don’t need much more. They work as a going-out-top, but can also function as workwear. I’m not giving up on this top style anytime soon.
How about you? Would you wear a puff sleeve blouse? How would you style it?
