Trying the Trend: Puff Sleeves

Puff sleeves are set to be the statement sleeve of spring.  It popped up all over the Spring/Summer 2018 runways – everyone from Christian Siriano to Isabel Marant to Gucci embraced this voluminous detail.  This more-is-more sleeve style always reminds me of Anne Shirley’s dream dress, so I already had positive feelings about it.

Nonetheless, it took me a bit to find a puffed sleeve piece in plus I loved, but this off the shoulder dark floral from the (temporarily) defunct Fashion to Figure fit the bill.

Unfortunately, this particular dress is no longer available (the neckline is a bit finicky anyways), but I’ve found a very close match here.  I’ve also rounded up all the best options puff sleeve options currently available in plus, with items at every price point.  This trend is fun because it can be as subtle or over the top as you want (depending on the size and drama of the puff), so I’ve included pieces that could work for everything from a corporate setting to a weekend athleisure look to a night out with the girls.  Click through below to find the perfect puff for you:
