Fashion can sometimes be predictable if you think about it. Slowly, we start returning to previous decades to bring back all the goodness that was and put a little bit of a modern spin on it. We’ve seen it happen with the return of flare leg, bell bottom pants (I’ve seen this trend now twice in my lifetime) that were hugely popular in the 70s (they actually date back to Navy uniforms from the early 1800s, didn’t think you were going to get a history lesson here, did you?), micro mini skirts from the 60s, chokers from the 90s, you get the idea! I can’t tell you how many times I have picked out things and my mom has said, “I used to have something just like that in high school (or college)!” 🙂 I think that’s kind of cool though that she sees her kids reliving her old styles!
Anyway, one of my favorite current trends from the 80s is the puff sleeve! We all remember the big puffy sleeves on the likes of Molly Ringwald, Madonna, and Tiffany! I was pretty little, but being a fashion lover from an early age, I always watched what the bigger girls were doing. My sister used to get so annoyed with me for copying her outfits! Haha! Sorry, E. So, when I saw some big designers with puff sleeves on their runways, I was pretty excited!
A statement top like a puff sleeve is a great way to keep your style casual, but still eye catching. I love this one from Lovers + Friends because it is such a trendy color, and has a lot of fun detail! You could wear it a number of ways. I chose to pair it with a pair of distressed jeans by Articles of Society for an every day look. But, you could definitely wear it with dressier pants or a skirt. Don’t be afraid of the puff sleeve! It’s back in a big way and if you haven’t already, you will be seeing it everywhere!
My boots are from Vince Camuto! I am obsessed with these booties! They are so soft, and extremely comfortable! They come in several different colors, I’m tempting to get more of them. An excellent purchase for the fall wardrobe! I found some just like them, also by Vince Camuto on sale at Amazon, too!
I’ve linked my entire outfit and accessories as well as some other puff sleeve tops and accessories from Amazon that I am loving! 🙂
What are you all up to this weekend? Any fun plans? I think we might go check out a local winery we have never been to before! Hope you have a great one 🙂
