The puff sleeve top has found its way to every fashion girl's wardrobe, and it's not hard to see why. The voluminous sleeves add heaps of drama and flair to an otherwise plain top, and it can easily be dressed up or dressed down depending on how you style it.
While the piece can do all the talking in one's outfit, teaming it with an attention-worthy pair of bottoms or shoes definitely takes things from a 10 to 100. If you're not sure where to start, scroll on for 10 celeb- and influencer-approved OOTDs we're taking notes from.
LOOK: 10 ways to style a puff sleeve top, as seen on celebs and influencers
1. Cropped Puff Sleeve Top + Straight Leg Jeans + Mules
This angelic 'fit of Pia Wurtzbach's totally had us smitten the first time we laid our eyes on it. The cloud-like Vania Romoff top featured a boxy silhouette, that was accentuated by the streamlined cut of her jeans. This is definitely an OOTD idea we're keeping in mind for our next semi-formal gathering.
2. Collared Puff Sleeve Top + Denim Shorts + Combat Boots
For a casual, slightly off-kilter option that will definitely turn heads, pair a dainty collared top with your go-to pair of denim shorts and the most eye-catching pair of combat boots. This look of Mimiyuuuh's definitely understood the "business up top, party at the bottom" assignment, and we're totally obssesed.
3. Cropped Puff Sleeve Top + High-Waisted Trousers
We can always count on Sarah Lahbati for tips on how to effortlessly dress up any article of clothing. For date nights, a romantic outfit to try out is a cropped puff sleeve top teamed with a belted pair of high-waisted trousers. It's sleek, cute, and one you'll definitely feel like having a ball in.
4. Floral Tie-Up Puff-Sleeve Top + Plaid Trousers + Sandals
In 2022, one should never be afraid of any print-on-print action. Let Heart Evangelista convince you to pair together equally as fun and vibrant pieces to come up with high impact, d0uble-tap worthy outfits. The trick is to keep everything in the same color palette, like how Heart chose to go for a sunrise-like motif with her shopping look.
5. Off-Shoulder Puff Sleeve Top + Printed Midi Skirt + Kitten Heels + Statement Earrings
One more thing we shouldn't hesitate to try out in the new year is some bold color blocking. Take some cues from Catriona Gray and accent a fiery red off-shoulder top with a printed blue skirt for an uber fresh travel OOTD.
6. Cropped Puff Sleeve Top + Wide-Legged Pants + Sneakers
Keep things breezy and wear a cheerful pastel puff sleeve top with a pair of white, wide leg pants and sneakers. Plus, we love how the canary yellow compliments Bella Racelis' brown locks! This 'fit is a charming one you could easily wear again and again with different colored tops and varying slews of accessories.
7. Puff Sleeve Peplum Top + Cigarette Pants + Flats
Let's be honest: We don't just go to cafes for coffee anymore, more often than not, we're also there to snap a couple pics for the 'Gram. Make the most out of your coffee run like Faye Balogo and slip on a dainty smocked top and a pair of attention-worthy flats for a comfy but stylish look.
8. Puff Sleeve Top + Mini Denim Skirt + Loafers
When all else fails, a denim skirt will always be there for you. If you have any puff sleeve tops that need to be dressed down for more casual occasions, tucking them into a blue jean skirt will instantly make them appear more relaxed. Throw on some loafers and you're good to go.
9. Checkered Puff Sleeve Top + High-Waisted Shorts + Sandals + Handbag
Another fail-safe way to add more character to your 'fits is to team a printed top with some delightfully colorful shorts. Vina Guerrero chose to wear her look with some easy sandals and her Louis Vuitton handbag. Try experimenting with different prints and varying shades, you never know what'll look great on you!
10. Matching Puff Sleeve Top and Shorts Set + Statement Earrings
For vacays and other out of town trips, a matching puff sleeve top and shorts set will be your go-to. It's easy to put together (since all you have to do is to put both pieces on), yet it already packs quite the punch. But why stop there? Rock a statement pair of earrings like Gabbi Garcia and you're set to explore the great outdoors in style.
