10 Must Have Statement Tops With Puff Sleeves
Voluminous, puffy or poufy, call it whatever you’d like, statement sleeves are all the rage right now and we couldn’t be happier. After a dry spell of the seeing the same off-shoulder trend, poufy sleeves have been the most refreshingly stylish sight in a long while and with good reason — they add the perfect amount of drama, look high fashion and make a statement — what more could a girl ask for?!
The fashion frenzy started at Spring 2018 fashion weeks when designers like Isabel Marant updated the basic white top sleeve into a puffed up popcorn. Agreeing with this sentiment were designers Carolina Herrera and Gucci with their modern take on the statement sleeve. Whereas Ulla Johnson and Christian Siriano took to the Edwardian era with puffed up sleeves that looked like they were filled with air.
Soon enough, high-street fashion followed suit and took to their own wearable take with the dramatic sleeve trend. We personally prefer donning these beauties with the most basic denims that one can find — the resulting look is a stark contrast keeping the sleeved toppers as the main starlets of the show.
Gone are the days when showing your bare arms were a thing, these amped up sleeves are the answer to those days when you wish to stay snug, who knew covering up your arms could be this chic?! In addition to the denim pairings, we love the idea of cozying up in a pencil skirt alongside the statement sleeved top, it’s rather feminine and can be well coordinated with solid or striped top and printed skirt pairing.
Available in fun prints and patterns, the modern sleeves take it a step further with voluminous styles that steal the show. When accessorising, it’s important to keep the look minimal with delicate necklaces and a non-flashy belt — the idea is to let the top do the talking while the rest of the outfit stays under the radar. A clutch and pointed-toe pumps make for a polished-cool vibe.
