What Your Wardrobe Needs: The Puff Sleeve

The puff sleeve is here to stay. This statement sleeve looked to be a cute seasonal trend when we started seeing it everywhere during Spring 2018. But, it’s still here and, with so many variations, it doesn’t look like it’ll be going anywhere anytime soon. Over the seasons, this larger-than-life sleeve has reinvented itself  time and time again. From the balloon to the Juliet, we’re here for all of them. Whether you’re opting for a puff sleeve top, dress, or jacket, here’s some inspo on how to style your shoulders.

How to Style Your Puff Sleeve Top

With summer right around the corner, a puff sleeve top is a total no-brainer. Whether you’re heading to brunch or the beach, our statement sleeves collection is just what your wardrobe needs.

Keep it light and airy with billowing puff sleeves – especially a puff sleeve peasant top! It’s perfect for a weekend getaway or a day roaming around the city. We’re loving this Plus Size Off-the-Shoulder Top, which pairs well with… everything!

Tuck this gorgeous Ruched Gingham Bodysuit into your favorite pair of jeans for a sweet, casual look. The beauty of the puff sleeve top is it instantly boosts any outfit and can be easily dressed up or down depending on the mood.

Puff Sleeve Dress Styles to Swoon Over

Nothing says summer like a puff sleeve dress. We love this Cutout Mini Dress, available in black or chestnut, it’s the perfect dress for showing off your tan. Pair it with a simple necklace and strappy sandals to complete the look.

For a bohemian look, this Linen-Blend Mini Dress is a super cute addition to your wardrobe. It’s light, breezy, and flirty. Glam it up with a pair of strappy heels and gold jewelry for brunch with the girls or style it with a sunhat and tortoiseshell sunglasses for lazy days at the beach.

Wear Your Heart on Your Puff Sleeve Crop Top

Not only are puff sleeves a wardrobe staple, but so are crop tops. Why not combine the two and rock a puff sleeve crop top?! We’re loving the Floral Drawstring Crop Top and Plus Size Floral Print Crop Top. Dress them up with a long skirt or white jeans or wear it with some high-waisted shorts for a more casual look. It’s the perfect balance between a boho beach vibe and city chic.

Heading back to work and looking to make a statement? Check out this Plus Size Clip Dot Crop Top in black or light blue. It pairs well with dress pants for a more professional look or go casual with a pair of jeans.

For an outfit we are totally obsessed with, wear your puff sleeve crop top under a pair of overalls. We love the puff sleeve under a denim overall dress styled with flat sandals or wedges. So cute!

Throw a Puff Sleeve Denim Jacket into the Mix

Accentuate your shoulders and make a bold statement with this Puff Sleeve Denim Jacket with a cropped hem and chest patch pockets. Available in tan or black, this jacket looks great with a plain white tee and white jeans for a monochromatic look with a little pop. A puff sleeve is bold and delicate at the same time, it’s also one of the biggest (and easiest) trends to try out.

So, check out the current statement sleeve offer at Forever 21 and don’t be shy… the bolder and puffier, the better.
