The bell sleeve top was the style that was booming in late 2016 and is currently still trending. This is a really flattering style as it is usually skinny through the bicep, the trumpet sleeve bells out around the elbow or wrist, thereby rendering your hands useless. Brands like Stella McCartney, Celine, Ellery, and Vetements sent hands-less models down the runway last year, but the trend didn’t really stick until now.
It is defiantly no secret out there, within the style crowd of the high fashion guru’s, that they all love to add a little drama into their outfits, and the statement of a bell sleeve is the way to do it. If you are going to rock a bell sleeve, the best way to do it is through an elegant, yet playful, silhouette. I styled my outfit in a simple way by adding this soft white top with my army green joggers. I added my go-to grey Irene Steve Madden sandals of the season to help kept this colour palette very simple and minimalist.
***Side note: Apparently block-heel sandals are not podiatrist-approved footwear, but it wouldn’t be the first time I sacrificed comfort for fashion!
“There are a lot of ways wearing a bell-sleeve top can improve your everyday life. Hailing a taxi is now an ethereal photo opp. Dancing/flinging your wrists around to Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” in your apartment is decidedly more impressive. Signing the receipt for your awesome new shoes includes a triumphant flourish.”
