10 Chic Ways to Style the Puffy Sleeve

10 Chic Ways to Style the Puffy Sleeve
The bigger, the better.

We dare declare that puffy sleeves are Spring/Summer 2017's answer to last year's off-shoulder craze, and so do the runways over at Gucci, Marques Almeida, Jacquemus, Rodarte, and Simone Rocha (among a hefty slew of others). Interestingly enough, even a look as distinct as this comes in various permutations—think Marie Antoinette-inspired romance over at Fendi and then an '80s rockstar twist care of Anthony Vaccarello's Saint Laurent. Volume is 100% at arm's length this season, so let our fave style stars teach you to blow things up the chic way.

Okay, first: the bare-shoulder thing hasn't quite faded just yet, so get the best of both worlds and combine the two trends. Kim Jones does it best!


We weren't kidding when we said Kim is a queen at this. Team with ruffles, lace, and a corset cinch to really make a statement.

Another pair-with-anything closet staple cue we're taking from Yoyo Cao? The a-line, button-front midi skirt (those buttons better be HUGE; otherwise, head on home).

Yoyo gets sheer in a wispy, white, whisper-light tulle confection from Dior. We're swooning!
