There's no question trends come and go. Some triumphant returns are more predictable than others (#overallsforever). I will never understand the how chokers are back, however the bell sleeve is one trend I can get behind. Can you tell I have a flare for flares?! Ha! But seriously, bell sleeves are fun and whimsical, and it doesn't matter if you're shopping at Barney's or Forever21 - this trend fits every budget.
While bell sleeves are an approachable trend, I'm not suggesting you go out and buy every Zara, H&M, or Forever21 top with massive sleeves. Some of the tops out there are completely impractical and damn near impossible to wear! How am I supposed to pump my gas wearing this? Or go to dinner and not get guacamole all over these sleeves? But hey, if you want go big, go big!
This stripe bell sleeve number is a 10 in my book. With its classic stripes and (somewhat) modest sleeves, it's something that will be on repeat in my wardrobe for years to come. Even if the trend fades!
When it comes to trends, I only follow those that fit my own style and have classic elements. Classic is key. And affordable is a plus! But let's be honest at the end of the day, my number one objective is to be confident and comfortable.
