Puff sleeves

It’s the vintage trend that’s been popping up on major runways consistently since 2018 and filtered down into major retailers, and puff sleeves aren’t going anywhere soon.

The larger-than-life sleeves have been appearing on beautiful tops, chic jerseys, stunning statement dresses, and the occasional blazer and come in a number of options like the balloon sleeve, the Juliet sleeve and the Victoria/ leg-of-mutton sleeve

As for the volume, I’ve seen sleeves that go from slightly raised shoulders all the way to full on balloon status, and I. Am. Here. For. It. The bigger the better.

I love that they’re fun, feminine and oh so chic (plus I feel like a character in a period drama when I wear them) and they offer a few benefits to someone who may or may not have gained some kgs over the lockdown period. (They create an exaggerated hourglass silhouette that proportionally makes the waist and the rest of the body look smaller)

Not that it matters, I’m just saying!
