Over the past few weeks I have been drawn to dresses, tops and generally any item with an upper part that has bell sleeves – also known as flare sleeves. I thought it was just me until I started noticing other bloggers, stylist and style icons embracing this trend as well.
So I thought long and hard about it and I’ve come to the conclusion that there is definitely something about The Bell Sleeve!

Reborn from the 70’s this trend is definitely an extension of last year’s boot-cut craze. All the same, taking a look at various stores, 2016 trend reports and style predictions, this should come as no surprise to every style lover! Trends go and come and are reborn from generation to generation and I guess this year we’ll be drawing our style inspiration from the 1970’s.
One interesting thing with trends is that every time they are reborn, there is always a twist added to the equation. So this year, it’s not just about having bells on your sleeve, but embracing this silhouette in different forms is definitely the in thing! So far, one twist on the bell silhouette that has caught my attention is this ensemble as put together by one of our Top 10 Female Fashion Bloggers Soraya De Carvalho of StyleIsMyThing.net
So how will you be embracing the bell trend or bell sleeves this year?
I’ve already found the perfect piece for me! What’s yours?
