Many retro trends made a huge comeback in the last few years, and it was just a matter of time before puff sleeves did the same. They’re finally back in the picture, and here’s what you should know about styling them.

Find the Right Size

Puffy sleeves range from small to voluminous, and it’s up to you to find the size that suits you. This trend is pretty difficult to pull off if you don’t have the right frame, so you have to try shirts and dresses in different sizes and see what looks best on you.

Keep it Simple

Puff sleeved tops can be difficult to combine with other clothes. If you’re having difficulty styling them, you can always go with a dress or a jumpsuit, because you only have to worry about accessories in this case.

Perfect Combination

Fashion influencers mostly wear puff-sleeved tops in black and white because they’re the easiest to match with other clothes. If you opt for more daring colors, make sure to wear neutral pants or a skirt because your top will be drawing enough attention.
