If you want to look insta-feminine, wear something with a bell sleeve.
My love affair with bell sleeves started back in 2003, when I was a fresh uni graduate/new teacher and I wore a bell-sleeved top with a pair of bell-bottom pants to a friendly dance match. I never looked back. To these days, I still love, love this sleeve silhouette and I covet it every time I see it.
We know that it came back as a trend with so full a force last year´s spring and it didn´t go anywhere, it´s still here as a trend and it´s popping anywhere. Guess what? It makes me feel so happy.
I admire how elegant it looks – whether it be a sleeve to a dress or a top – and how it makes the wearer´s arms look lean and long. In a way, it works similar with the bell-bottom pants. You know, faking a pair of long legs thanks to really long heels hidden beneath the bell hems?
All lengths of bell sleeves are in my book but if I were asked what`s my preference, I would probably say it´s the quarter sleeves with a bell that drapes nicely towards the wrist.
Here are some of the most dramatic bell sleeve numbers that I found online.
Let me know which one is your fave.
