We’ve been seeing a bunch of ’70s trends making their way back into the mainstream the past few seasons, and there’s no denying that this era is still alive and kicking, at least sartorially speaking. The next blast from the past to take the reins this season? The bell sleeve.
There’s something to be said about a billowing, flowing sleeve. It’s a little bit retro, a little bit romantic, and we’ve always loved how an all-black lacy version gives us some serious witchy vibes (Halloween inspo, perhaps?).
This season, we’re seeing versions of the bell sleeve just about everywhere. Whether for a dramatic effect, starting from above the elbow, or a subtle touch, starting from the wrist down, we’re seeing it on everything from T-shirts and blouses to party dresses. Could this be the next off-the-shoulder top (that is until off-one-shoulder comes into the spotlight this spring)?
