Bell sleeves are all the rave this year. They come in many different shapes, sizes, colors, and prints. I’m sharing three reasons why you need to add bell sleeves to your wardrobe this spring and summer!
Why you need bell sleeves
- They suit different body shapes: No matter your shape or size, there’s a bell sleeve out there for everyone. For instance, if you’re apple shaped, bell sleeves add volume to your arms and this will help balance out your broader shoulders. They also work for pear, straight, and hourglass body shapes since they help you look more proportionate. Just make sure to balance out the whole look. The safest way to do this is by pairing your bell sleeve tops with high-waisted skirts/shorts or skinny/straight bottoms.
- Make a statement: Bell sleeves are major statement makers. The bigger they are, the more dramatic the outfit will be. I love really structured ones that will sure make you standout, like what I’m wearing in this post. Prefer to be more subtle? No worries, sometimes less is more and there are tons of simple bell sleeves options (like here) that can still make a statement as well.
- Add a feminine touch: Bell sleeves are one of the easiest ways to add something sweet and darling to your look. They are so feminine, playful and flirty. I love the ones with bows, or that are multi-tiered, or are made of lace.
Like I mentioned, bell sleeves can be for everyone. Down below, I’ve curated many options whether you like them subtle or dramatic. In this post, I went for more voluminous sleeves and love how fabulous they are. Tina’s Tips: This top needs a lot of ironing and I went up one size. I also styled it with over the knee boots as shown here:
