This week’s trending style is the bell sleeve! Bell sleeves are fun since they add volume to the lower half of the arm and provide flounce giving your outfit a different silhouette. I found this cropped bell sleeve lace number at Goodwill with the tags still on. Score! I wanted to go for a monochromatic outfit but played with textures by mixing the lace print with a little bit of faux fur.
How to Style Bell Sleeves
- Think about your silhouette. You’re adding volume to the sleeves so you don’t want to wear anything too voluminous on the bottom half of your body. Stay away from a big voluminous skirt or baggy pants.
- The bell sleeve top can be paired with shorts or pants but I suggest keeping them fitted. If you find a bell sleeve dress, it actually doesn’t even need to be fitted at all. Think of a nice boho vibe even if it’s an A line or tent shape!
- Stick to slinkier fabrics even if the silhouette isn’t form fitting. Stay away from thick or heavy fabrics.
