First came the cold shoulder which took dresses, tops, blouses and even lehengas by the storm! Then came the feminine off-the-shoulder trend, that makes a comeback almost every summer. But now, we’ve got something more dramatic than casual.
The puff sleeve has been famous since the 17th century and has undergone many changes in style since then. The balloon effect is most popularly seen on the shoulder line, but a puff on the elbow is also now a common style.
Feel free to experiment with the plethora of choices to see what you’re most comfortable in and what looks best for your body structure.
To style a voluminous sleeve always keep in mind that bold prints are a risk, subtle prints and plain colours are really easy to pull off. Also, to create the right balance in the outfit make sure that you pair volume with something sleek and skinny, like straight fit pants or pencil skirts.
To further inspire you to add some drama in your wardrobe, here are a few celebrities in puff sleeves:
