Fashion tip: The bell sleeves

untitled-2

They are back, and you should not be waiting long to rock this sexy look. The beauty about it is that it can be pulled off by any age.

I am not one to jump onto trends (I do not embrace them as much as I recommend them), but I must say, the bell sleeves will be the death of me. Well, just because we cannot rock this trend on our bottoms (plus -size girl problems), does not mean we cannot embrace the trend.
The bell sleeves are the perfect way to create a great detail with your dresses and tops.
This retro style trend works best on body cons. For instance, if you had on a great gown, possibly body hugging, the bell sleeves would be a great way to add character to your look.
You can also wear it on your boho style top and pair of great skinny jeans for a laid back, but very great casual look.
Depending on what look you are going for, the accessories; shoes, bags and jewellery will be determined by the direction you are taking.
When it comes to selecting a sleeve length, it would be advisable for the person with a shorter arm to keep their sleeve short. The taller person on the other hand, can have the sleeves long, all the way. At the end of the day, you need the bell sleeve to flatter, both your body and look.

how to wear bell sleeves,
Bell sleeve tops look best when paired with fitted bottoms such as skinny jeans or pants, as well as with pencil skirts.
Bell sleeve dresses can be worn in different styles; casual or formal, coloured or printed, loose or fitted.
