Seaside Stripes

Plus Size Fashion for Women • Plus Size Bell Sleeve Outfit Idea • Seaside Stripes | Shapely Chic Sheri
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.

Dress: New York & Co. (very similar in plus here and here)
Belt: ASOS Curve (similar)
Shoes: Tory Burch (similar here and here)
Bag: Hobo (similar here and here)
Rings: Nordstrom Rack

P.S. I altered the top elastic portion of this dress to prevent it from riding up onto my shoulders as I moved.
