Bell Sleeves: the style that came back last year

Bell Sleeves & Femininity

Are you wearing bell sleeves right now?  If you follow any fashion blogs I am sure you’ve seen them as they are very popular right now.  The style of that kind of sleeve just adds a feminine touch to a shirt.  Compare the two long-sleeved red shirts below.  Can you tell how the bell sleeves make the whole look just a bit more feminine?


Bell Sleeve from Work to Play

The bell sleeve style has been incorporated  in many shirts and dresses, although the intensity of the bell can vary quite a bit.  For example, a larger and wider bell sleeve may not be optimal if you work a corporate desk job since the sleeve might start to get in the way of the keyboard.  But, for a Saturday night out, it may be exactly what you’re looking for in a beautiful, sexy look!  Below are 3 varieties of bell sleeves compared across the style of a black shirt.  The first one is the simplest and may be the best option if you’re looking to just add a bit of the bell sleeve style to your wardrobe.  If you already know that you love the style, then the last option may be for you!  It has the most dramatic sleeve and definitely accentuates the bell sleeve style.



If you haven’t already, would you want to try this style?  Is it already a part of your wardrobe?  I have chosen some favorites below  I really like the Madewell top because it looks like a top I’d like to wear to work and the sleeve isn’t too dramatic for my style.  Another favorite is the striped top from Max Studio because it would pair well with black or denim jeans easily.  I also think that the blush-colored dress from Nordstrom is a great choice for a spring dress!

Hope you’re having a great weekend!
