ALL IN THE DETAILS: Bell Of The Ball

The biggest trend this summer has clearly been the resurgence of ‘70s styles: wide leg pants, flared jeans, jumpsuits and fringed details are just a few of the ’70s trends that have been seen everywhere. The newest addition to this list? Bell sleeves.

There are many different styles and ways to incorporate bell sleeves into your wardrobe. To really embody the ‘70s aesthetic you can wear a suede dress with floral sleeves. To bring a more modern approach, you can try a black dress with a simple silhouette and very subtle bell sleeves. You can even add a more formal and elegant twist with a bell sleeved dress in lace. This fun detail appears on rompers, shirts and even sweaters and can add a little something extra to any outfit.

Proving that this trend is worth investing in, this Fashionista has bell sleeves down to an art. Her printed romper has the perfect sized sleeves to help thin and lengthen her arms. The change in pattern around the wrist helps to bring attention to the bell sleeves and really makes them the focal point of the look. To balance out the patterned romper, she has chosen a pair of more modern and simple sandals. Boho-inspired jewelry, specifically rings, were the perfect complement to the patterned romper and the shape of the sleeves.

This look is great for the end of summer and the transition into fall, especially when it comes time to go back to school and you want anything that can make your outfit comfortable and cute at the same time.

How To: If you’re interested in working this detail into your closet but are worried about pulling it off, start small. A slight flare in your sleeves on a sundress or romper is subtle and chic and can pave the way for more dramatic bell sleeves in your everyday look.
