You Can Ring My Bell (Sleeves)

Have you guys noticed how bell sleeves are everywhere right now? Supposedly they're going to take over the off-the-shoulder trend for tops and dresses in 2017. My all-time favorite dress, a printed mini swing dress from Free People (you can see me sporting it here) has subtle-but-definitely-there bell sleeves, and I always feel all bohemianly (not a word but I'm sticking with it) romantic when I wear it. While they admittedly make things like washing dishes a bit challenging (my friend Adam told me to "watch my Stevie Nicks sleeves" while I was helping clean up at a party, and I thought that was pretty accurate), they're timelessly beautiful. The looks you see above, while all very different from one another style-wise, are some of my current favorites. I think I need to snag #1 for my first clothing purchase of the year - you can't beat that price.

Who else is loving the bell sleeve trend? Which look above do you like best?



  1. I love the bell sleeve trend but I'm still trying to work out how I would actually wear it without dipping the sleeves in everything from my lunch to my coffee cup to the sink when washing my hands. Once I get that sorted, I'm going to be all over it ;)

  2. I love that blue velvet dress. I would definitely try this trend.

  3. Love #4 :)
    I own a green knit sweater from the 90s with bell sleeves!

  4. Bring on the bell sleeves for spring!
