Volume seems to be the silhouette of the fall 2016 season. We are seeing ruffles, puffy sleeves, ruffle sleeves, puffy hi-lo skirts (for dressy occasions), and sleeves which could be mistaken for something from the 1980s. While this was a little runway trend for the fall 2016 season, it seems to have exploded on the streets.
Exaggerated puffy sleeves are a bit much for us here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Although puffy sleeves are intimidating, they can be worn daily when done in an understated way. That is what drew me to this navy puffy sleeve top. There is enough volume in the sleeves to make them puffy, yet they are not over-the-top. This makes the top on trend, puffy, yet understated. How very Bay Area! Love that!
I wore this puffy sleeve top with my favorite navy pleated skirt to church, and then to dinner over the weekend. It was really comfortable, and I felt runway ready. This is a great top to wear now while the fall temperatures are moderate. The fabric is comfortable, the sleeves offer volume, and it is easy to dress up or down. Just wait until I pair it with jeans! Fabulous!
This puffy sleeve top can also be worn in a creative work environment since it is not overbearing, yet offers a little bit of sass with it’s volume. It is also perfect for weekend-wear such as jeans, a denim skirt, dress shorts (weather permitting), mini skirts, and midi skirts; such as how I styled it in this post.
This puffy sleeve top runs a little bit big. I feel like I should have ordered one size down. It looks a little bit large on me. If you are considering ordering it, and are often between sizes, go down one size. You can find this puffy sleeve top in navy online here, and online here.
What do you think of puffy sleeves or ruffle sleeves for the fall 2016 season? Is this a trend you will be rocking?
Thanks for stopping by!
