Bell Sleeves

Bell sleeves are one of my favorite trends this fall. Also referred to as “fluted” or “flared” sleeves, they have a very hippie, bohemian vibe. However, I love that they can be sophisticated depending on the cut of the piece. The lace blouse below from Ann Taylor is great for work, and almost feels Victorian. The Parker double-bell sleeve (or bell sleeve with a ruffle) dress beneath it is the same dress that I wore in my last post! It’s also fun to see bell sleeves being combined with other trends from the season- like lace-up and off-the-shoulder tops. I remember bell sleevesĀ being trendy when I was in about third grade- Limited2 had some great ones! I am happy that they are making a comeback.

Welcome back, bell sleeves!
