2020 Trend Alert: Puffy Sleeves

If you thought puffy sleeves were on their way out for 2020, think again! Despite being a go-to trend last year, the puff-sleeve effect is still in full force – it’s glam, it’s statement-making, it’s the 80’s with a contemporary twist!

Pair your puff-sleeve tops with all your wardrobe faves, from your go-to denim to your favourite midi skirt or pair of tailored pants. Being a more romantic silhouette, puffy sleeves also work perfectly with edgy fabrics like leather for a dramatic and stylish contrast. If you opt for a dress instead, elevate the look with a pair of strappy heels and let the frock do the talking!

With no shortage of options available online, we’ve hunted down 18 of our puff-sleeve faves just for you. Get ‘em while they’re hot!
