An undeniable trend for spring and summer 2020?
The puff sleeve.
Whichever way you turn, puff sleeves, exaggerated shoulders, and balloon sleeves are in sight. And why do we all love them so much!?
They feel EXTRA.
But they’re still wearable.
Rarely do you find a fashion pick that feels like an ‘extra’, super-cool trend but is actually easy to wear day to day. Find the perfect top and you’ll be wearing it with sweats or a denim skirt just as easily as you would a dressy look. And that’s why we love them.
Making this trend easier than ever for you to find, we’ve pieced together some of the best puff sleeve tops and dresses around right now.
And – we’ve found some bargains on sale for you too.

We’re all about the combo of a puff sleeve and a peplum waist with this beaut. When you opt for Brock Collection, you know it’s not going to be cheap, but this style has just popped up with $200 off on sale right now so if you’re a fan, now is the time to invest.
On the other side of the spectrum, if you’re going to try out this look, why not do:

This top could not be cuter. Perfect to pair with cropped blue jeans. Plus, you’ll still be wearing this with leather pants come next fall and winter.
Topshop gets it right when it comes to trends. And this one is no different.
Not only is this super-cool top beautifully finished in a semi-sheer fabric with puff sleeves, on-trend cuffs, and a waisted peplum, but it’s also on sale at under $40. Can you really say no to that!?
Also loving the same shape but in simple pure white.
Fancy adding the puff sleeve look to your denim collection? Topshop thought of it first and came up with this beaut V neck crop with long puff sleeves. Super cute with the matching skirt or easy with denim shorts too.
Mango is another great go-to brand when you’re on the hunt for the season’s hottest trends.
They’ve done everything right with this stunning sheer organza top. Layer with a simple bandeau or strappy crop or keep it more covered with a tank underneath.

How to wear a puff sleeve top?
Not sure how you’d style a puff sleeve top? Especially when you’re not headed anywhere particularly dressy?
Here are our quick top tips on what the wear with yours.
· Blue jeans never fail. Go straight cut or wide and slightly cropped.
· A black denim skirt looks edgy but easy to dress up with heels.
· Wide tailored trousers. Feeling particularly summery? The femininity but authority of a wide tailored pant works perfectly with this bold top look.
· Utility skirt. Juxtapose the femininity of the top with the structure of a utility-style skirt.
· Ruffle skirt. If you’re all about the girly vibes, pair yours with an all-frills ruffle skirt.
· Opt for black. If you’re slightly worried about the ‘look at me’ vibes of a puff sleeve top, stick to black for ultimate chic style.
