We all know that trends come and go, but the bell sleeve is the hottest trend yet. Every time I step out or browse the web, the bell sleeve is incorporated on shirts, dresses, button-ups, crop tops—you name it! Whether it’s my favorite Instagram bloggers or a girl at school, if I see a bell sleeved top, I most likely want it right away. A continuing fashion from 2016, the bell sleeve this summer will effortlessly put your outfit together and give it character. Here are some of my favorite ways to wear the bell sleeve incorporating some of the hottest new summer trends:
1—Off The Shoulder Banker’s Stripe Dress
This summer, the banker’s stripe dress is a must. It’s classy, yet casual. Not only have I seen the stripes on the runway, but a little shoulder action as well, giving it an all together feminine look. I decided to add a modest twist into this outfit, and add a white shirt under. On the bottom, I added white denim. You can never go wrong with layering, even if it is in the summer!
2—Statement Stripes And Lace
If you’re afraid to wear sleeves in the summer, do not fear: lace is here. This light weight top from H&M is the perfect summer essential. I decided to pair it with denim, to give it an all blue summer vibe. The statement stripes on this blouse adds character and makes it perfect for brunch with the girls!
3—The Military Ruffle Bell Sleeves
If you thought bell sleeves couldn’t get any fancier, you thought wrong! This top from Zara puts a fun twist on bell sleeves by adding layers to give it a ruffle effect. Military is a returning trend for this summer, adding a feminine touch with the tiered bell sleeve. The mesh material on this top makes it lightweight, allowing you to layer as much as you want or not at all! I stuck with a black shirt underneath.
4—The Classic Bell Sleeve
If you’d rather stick to a simpler and put together look, the classic silk white blouse is the one for you. Perfect for interviews or work during the day, you can transform this top by adding a small cross body for your night out dinner date.
So there you have it! The hottest bell sleeve trend of the year mixed in with the newest summer runway trends. With these essentials, your wardrobe will be set to go.
