SS06 Fashion Trend: Puffy Sleeves in the Shops
You might have recently noticed a lot of shirts that have sleeves like the one above. It's more 'scrunched' than 'puffed', but I think it's just a variation of the puffs.
This is what I mean by tiny puffs -they're basically just tops with slightly fatter sleeves. These two tops are from Forever 21.
And these tops are from Miss Selfridge. These two are definately more edgy than the Forever 21 tops.
Here are two other tops from Miss Selfridge. The puffy sleeves on the black and white striped top on the right is quite long, so it should be pretty flattering and easy to wear. As for the red and white flower one... well, you better have really toned arms.
Both tops from Anthropologie. The puffy sleeves look loose and comfortable to me, just like the rest of the tops, especially the black one. And just in case you didn't know, grey and black are very fashionable colours right now.
Yes, it's my beloved Marc by Marc Jacobs top again -remember I talked about it in the Empire Waist Tops post? The sleeves are slightly puffy like it would in a dress for dolls.
Another similar but more basic top by Marc by Marc Jacobs.
An oh-so-fashionable white, puffy sleeve Lux House Dress from Urban Outfitters. I like the Victorian ruffle design near the neckline because it blends couture style with street style so it's easy to wear!
An empire wasit dress by Derek Lam. It's pretty but for some odd reason, I just don't totally love it. Maybe it's the material; or maybe I can't think of where and when to wear it to. Anyways, this sleeves of this dress are examples of 'deflated puffs.'
A puffy sleeve printed top by Blumarine. The printed flowers are just a bit too much, but this is an excellent example of how puffy sleeves can look pretty in real life!
You probably noticed that for once, the high street versions of the puffy sleeve clothes look extremely different from the high end versions -talk about lost in translation!
