Bell sleeves have become a really hot style this season, they can be seen everywhere from shirts to dresses, from H&M to Lily Pulitzer. It’s understandable as to why, they are not only comfortable but super flattering! I love the romantic vibe they provoke. Below is my OOD, featuring a white bell sleeve top from Tilly’s with skinny jeans and gold earrings. I wore riding boots with this outfit, but any sort of boot or heel would work!
One of the great things about bell sleeves is that they not only add a romantic feel to any casual look, but they make you appear sophisticated and put together – meaning they can easily be used to go from a day to night look.
See what I mean? Those are just a few of my personal favorite pics, you can find the links to each individual piece on my Polyvore account here.
The trick to pulling these styles off, to me, is to make it appear effortless or casual. You don’t need to add a lot of accesories, do something crazy with your hair, or wear amazing shoes to really look good in these. I personally believe most of these look best with jeans or a pair of boots and some killer makeup – like a bold or nude lipstick. Basically, you want to make people think you ‘woke up like this’! (Sorry, I’m so terribly un-funny. I’m trying!)
