Happy Tuesday ladies! It feels so good to be sitting down and writing a post. I know I’ve been a little off with my posting schedule but I promise soon enough I’ll be back into the swing of things again.
Today I thought I’d share a current trend that you either love to wear or love to hate.
Balloon sleeves are big (pun intended) right now and are only going to gain momentum come fall. It’s the perfect way to add drama to a simple outfit while keeping things pretty practical – especially if you choose short sleeve. But real talk, you’ll be teetering with 19th-century à la Victorian era fashion with this style statement so you’ve been warned.
Balloon sleeves (or puff sleeves) are definitely a case-by-case basis for me. I may fall in love with the top or dress on the hanger but hate it once I try it on – or vice versa. If anything, they remind me to never judge a book by its cover and just try the article of clothing, if only just to get a taste of a style I never thought I’d like. Case in point: this dress. On the hanger, the sleeves look HUGE but on, it surprisingly fit my frame.
A great way to ease into balloon sleeves is to try a long sleeve top. They flatter everyone and can either be dainty and sweet or chic and dramatic. They cater to so many styles and work for many occasions.
If arms are your trouble you might really fall in love with this trend too. They’re going to draw attention but not accentuate it in a bad way. Just make sure you wear the item with confidence. The last thing you want is to wear a piece of clothing that makes you feel uncomfortable.
I would love to know, do you love to wear or love to hate the balloon sleeve trend? Sound off below!
Thanks for sharing some of your time with me today! Until my next post!
