15 perfect ways to rock the puff sleeve trend this season

From haute couture runways to our local high streets, puff sleeves are everywhere and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, the past year has seen the chic design detail go from having a ‘moment’ to cementing a full-time residency in the fashion world, with everyone from reputable designers to fast-fashion outlets online replicating the trend in their collections.

While statements sleeves can look a bit daunting at first, the trend is actually surprisingly easy to pull off. You can keep things easy and opt for a dress – H&M is selling a denim staple right now, while & Other Stories is perfect for fun floral designs. Pair your favourite mom jeans with a simple cardigan or jumper – stores like Zara, Anthropologie and Monki have some good options for spring – for a casual look. And for those who want to dress up a little bit more, there are lots of puff-sleeve tops on the high street – ranging from classic white poplin shirts to colourful patterned tops.

Plenty of options, so we’ve rounded up some of our favourites on the market right now…
