I’m not usually obsessed with the latest trends, but statement sleeves is one trend that I’m absolutely loving this season. Whether they are puff, bell or ruffle sleeves, I simply love that hint of drama and interest they add to an otherwise simple blouse or dress. So, when I spotted this striped bell-sleeved dress from New York & Company a few weeks ago, it was a no-brainer. I just knew it would be a great addition to my closet for the summer.
Looking for a not-so subtle way to try this trend? A blouse or dress with extremely voluminous sleeves, like the one I’m wearing today, can be a great option. However, if you’d prefer something a bit more subdued, I’ve put together several plus-size options below.
