One of my favorite trends this season is bell sleeves. They’re girly and fun, but sometimes can be a little too much when styled incorrectly. But when they’re right, they’re oh so cute. Take this J.Crew Ruffled Bell-Sleeve Shift Dress for example.
I’ve been lusting over this dress since I first laid eyes on it, and I finally bit the bullet and purchased it during a recent 30% off sale. I’m obsessed. (It does run big, so I sized down and got an XS.) I’ll wear this shift to work with nude flats, weekend lunches with casual sandals and dressed up to summer soirees with fun jewelry and heels. (Lets be honest, I’m never taking it off.)
I paired the striped dress with brightly colored accessories and shiny statement jewels. Playing with patterns I wore these J.Crew floral yellow pumps (from a few seasons back), and carried a light blue Gigi NY tassel clutch (my all time favorite bag). J.Crew statement studs and a Loren Hope cuff added a glimpse of glam to this fun spring outfit.
What would you pair with this bell-sleeved beauty? Let me know in the comments below.
