Summer Trend | Romantic Puff Sleeve Dress
Hi loves! I’m obsessing over the puffy sleeve dresses and tops flooding my Instagram feed at the moment. It’s such a romantic and feminine style for summer. I decided to jump on the trend while shopping in London, so I picked up this dress from & Other Stories. The fabric is so light and airy it will keep me cool when I wear it in Dubai as the summer heat gets going. Try favorite detail is the elasticated sleeves because you can make the sleeves even puffier by pushing them up the arm.
I’ve been trying to define my style a bit more lately, and that includes choosing pieces that nip me in at the waist to accentuate my body shape. This dress has an adjustable tie waist, so it is perfect if you are like me in that I usually have to go up a size in dresses to fit my hips, but then the waist is too big. The puffy sleeves add a lovely volume on top and give the illusion of an exaggerated hourglass figure. I don’t see this dress or the puff sleeve trend, leaving my wardrobe for many summers to come.
I’ve paired it with my itty bitty Chanel bag, and vintage Chanel belt (similar here), and Same Edelman sandals I’ve had for years (similar on sale here and here). You can read about how I sourced this belt here.
