How to wear puffy sleeves (like an ASOSer)

By Maybelle Morgan, 2 July 2017

Super-long, frilly or just plain massive – sleeve-drama is a trend that’s showing no signs of going away. The latest update? Gorgeous puffy princess sleeves, that are very 13 Going on 30, and are hitting up everything from your day dress to your work shirt. See how the ASOS team are getting on board…

Spot on

Retro 50s prints meet jazzy 80s silhouettes with this loud polka-dot beauty. Embrace the clash with leopard-print sandals, but keep the look day-time friendly with simple raw-edge jeans. Thumbs up.

Wrist off

Off-shoulder shape, a tailored waist and serious wrist drama are all in a day's work for Claudia. The tomato-red shade amps up the 80s feels, while the navy trousers and white technical sneaks keep it fresh and contemporary.

Getting shirty with it

Forget the work shirt as you know it. Starchy white carbon copies have been swapped out for crisp button-throughs with subtle 80s puff shoulders. Monochrome is the way to work it, with a racer-check slip dress and white Stan Smiths to finish the look.

In a ruche

If less is more for you, then this cutesy gingham wrap shirt with subtle puff ruching at the elbows will fit the bill nicely. Keep the workwear thread running with tailored grey trousers before casjing it up with summer-appropriate white Converse.

Raspberry ripple

If your party dress and your work wardrobe were to ever have a love child, this dress would be it. Off-shoulder XL sleeves and wrap skirting all in kitsch deckchair stripes. Take notes from Estelle and finish the outfit with sleek gold accessories and white high-tops.
