Tops with oversized, dramatic shoulders and sleeves are the new statement for the season. While it’s inspired by the ’80s, the puff-sleeved tops have made a comeback with a modern and interesting twist. Puff sleeves can be seen on all sorts of pieces, from t-shirts and dresses to shirts and rompers. Whatever be your style statement, there is a puff sleeve waiting for you out there.
If you have wanted to adopt the much-hyped oversized sleeves yourself, here are some easy ways to do so:
1. With A Mid-Length Skirt For A Snazzy Office Look:
Who said you could only wear a well-fitted dress on a date? Pair a solid puff sleeve black top with a mid-length skirt, and you are all set for your next pitch meeting.
Style Tip: Since the sleeves create volume on your shoulders, go for a well-fitted skirt to balance your look. Pair a black puff sleeve top with a grey corduroy skirt to give your office wear an elegant touch. Pull your hair back in a sleek updo and pair it with minimal studs to complete your look.
2. With Ankle-Length Palazzos For Some Ethnic Flair
On a gloomy Monday, dress up your regular palazzos by teaming them up with a casual puff-sleeved top. Try to go for neutral shades so that you don’t look overdressed.
Style Tip: Add an ethnic touch to this outfit by pairing palazzos with a tunic. For example, wear a patterned black tunic with white palazzos for the perfect contrast. Pair it with silver earrings or fringed earrings to add a touch of glam to your look.
3. With Flared Jeans For A Casual Look
If you are heading for a day out with friends and want to keep it comfortable yet chic, wear your favourite denim with a classic puff-sleeved. You can layer it with a denim jacket for the chilly evenings and pair it with white sneakers for a sporty vibe.
Style Tip: Pair a polka dots puff sleeve top with flared or fitting denim pants. Tuck the top inside if you go for flared jeans to create a contrast. Pair this outfit with simple black stilettos and silver earrings.
4. Off-Shoulder And Trousers For An Informal Mix
There are days when you don’t want to wear a dress and yet stay on top of your fashion game. That’s when a bright, solid puff-sleeved top with off-shoulders comes to your rescue. It goes perfectly well with trousers to create a look you can wear to a casual afternoon brunch.
Style Tip: Pair a pink off-shoulder puff-sleeved top with black trousers and sandals. Accessorise the look with some statement earrings to that add that something extra to this look.
