Puffy-Sleeve Blouses: Love It or Hate It?

Remember the puffy shirt from Seinfeld? The thought of wearing it on national TV prompted Jerry to shout "But I don't wanna be a pirate!" But right now, it seems, fashion designers do want us all to be pirates. Consider, for instance, this Fendi Puffy Sleeve Silk Blouse With Jabot. The 100 percent silk, Italian-made blouse has a silk tie and gold F-emblazoned buttons. You can buy it here for $1,690.

The scary thing is, Fendi isn't the only one hopping on the puffy shirt trend. If that top is a bit too rich for your blood, check out this Daryl K Raj Dress with Button Placket, available for $695 here. This one is made from pale-gray silk and also comes with 3/4-length sleeves. So, tell me what you think of the puffy shirt: a good way to embrace the big-volume trend, or completely silly? Let me know if you love it or hate it below.

Um, no. On a side note, I saw my very first person rocking the leg warmers out in public the other day. She even threw in a tiered ruffle skirt EXACTLY like I loved in junior high. :D

They are officially out of ideas. They should stop designing clothes immediately. Horrendous.

Don't love it. Its a little over the top and old lady looking. Sometimes fashion designers want to be so artistic they forget that we need to wear this stuff often!

I like the ones that have shown up all over.. with the tiny bit of "puff" at the shoulder seam that makes a basic shirt look a little more feminine. Oddly, I haven't even tried one on though.

I normally like the puffy-sleeves trend, but I think the Fendi one is way too big to be translated onto the streets. It's best left on the runways. The Daryl K Raj one I like because it's toned down and you can wear it without attacting negative attention.

I would be so embarrased to go out in public looking like that. It's like a Seinfeld episode.

I don't like the Fendi AT ALL. The Daryl K wouldn't be so horrible if it was black. In that pale color it looks like a nightgown.
