Don’t Pass on the Puffed Sleeve Trend

When we first saw a glimpse of the puffed sleeve making a comeback in 2018, we might not have been into it. Bringing back a taste of the 80s didn’t seem like it would hit the ground running. Well, ladies, it’s 2021 - and the puffed sleeve isn’t going anywhere.


What do I have to say about it? Don’t pass on the puffed sleeve. Seriously. There is a puffed-up style for every woman out there, whether you’re into the trendy crop top or prefer a cute and flirty dress.


That said, let’s take a look at some of the best ways to puff up your style.

Chic Crop Tops

It’s no secret that crop tops are all the rage right now. If you haven’t dipped into this midriff fashion must-have, then I recommend you do it right away. But don’t settle for just any crop top. If you really want to look like your runway-ready, consider a chic crop top with puffed sleeves.

The Cassia Crop Top from For Love & Lemons is the perfect example of combining three springtime picks: cropped tops, puffed sleeves, and gorgeous floral accents. Seriously, is there anything not to like about this flashy and bright puffed crop top?

Not a floral chic? Don’t worry. If you’re more into the monochrome style but want a bit more pizazz, here’s a great option for you. This adorable ASOS Ruched Top comes with charming black polka dots against a bright white background for a look that really pops.
