PUFFY SLEEVE SHIRT

PUFFY SLEEVE SHIRT
Puffy sleeves are the huge trend of the 2019 spring season as seen on fashion runways shows as well as on the Instagram accounts of biggest fashion influencers and although I have had this puffy sleeve shirt for quite some time, there is now even more reason to write a post about it.

The main features of my shirt include shoulder dropped puffy sleeves, with wide double sided cuffs and a high collar that can be folded over if needed.  I spotted it in the window of Natalie Alamain boutique on Bondi Beach and liked it for its original design, obviously, and a quirky botanical print.

When I tried it on, it put a smile on my face 😍 and those of you who, like me, are big Jerry Seinfeld fans, would know why - the infamous "Puffy Shirt" that Jerry was forced to wear on a talk show where the host made a comment that Jerry looked all "puffed up" and which was later sold at auction for a whopping amount of $45,000.  Another puffy shirt that was used on the show was donated to the Smithsonian museum by Jerry Seinfeld himself.

But I digress.  It's obvious that over-sized sleeves make quite a strong style statement that could make some women feel rather hesitant about this trend and thus my advice to you is that you can start small by wearing a puffy sleeve blouse that would be the star of your outfit and then paired down by simple jeans or a skirt.  If wearing a dress is more your style, then a pair of classic white sneakers or a pair of minimal sandals would help you to tone down the volume.

Right proportions, depending on your height and body shape, should also be taken into consideration especially when buying a dress with a big billowing sleeve so if you have any concerns about your final look, opt for a dress with a straight or pencil silhouette skirt with a length that is most flattering to your legs and other personal characteristics such as height, body shape and size.

As for me, the blouse is the best way to embrace this trend and I can assure you that I would get much more use of it than of a dress.  It is so much easier to make a blouse suitable for the occasion or the time of the day than a dress.  I personally prefer to wear my puffy sleeve shirt with black or white straight jeans and a pair of sneakers which is a perfect blend of looking fashionable yet relaxed and comfortable at the same time.

I have been on a hunt for a new pair of white sneakers for some time now and was very happy when I cam across these ones from French label called Spring Court.  Instantly recognisable for their ventilated outsole and soft leather,  they are extremely comfortable and look equally great with jeans or a skirt.

Whatever path you are going to take, I urge you to give it a go.

I am wearing:
Blouse - Natalie Alamain
Jeans - NYDJ
Sneakers - Spring Court
Belt - Hermes
Handbag - Georgio Armani
Glasses - Valley

Cheers,

  8. Anna, this is such a great shirt and the print is super fun! I love the contrast between the statement of the puffy sleeves and the toned down jeans and those adorable sneakers. Such a whimsical look. And the two thumbs up to the Seinfeld puffy shirt reference! Lol.

  9. Such a fun shirt and I really like the statement puffy sleeves! i have a few blouses that have a slightly puffy sleeve but nothing as bold as this - being petite I'm not sure I could pull it off, even with the great tips you gave, haha!

    Hope that you are having a great weekend! We had our son's birthday party yesterday, it was loud but fun :)
