I'm going to let you in on a little secret: I'm obsessed with the puffy-sleeve trend. The minute I took this $26 white style for a spin, I was hooked, and I find myself actively seeking out more options to wear throughout Summer. Despite puffy sleeves last peaking in the '80s when overly flashy fashion reigned supreme, 2019 has proven that old trends can certainly feel new and fresh for today. Voluminous, statement-making puffy sleeves are the perfect example of an old-but-now-new silhouette that feels super cool this season — heck, the shape is dang near ubiquitous among fashion girls and offered from tons of brands from affordable to designer in dress, blouse, and t-shirt form.
As a lover a feminine pieces, I'm finding myself drawn to nearly every puffy sleeve I set my eyes on, whether I'm dressing for the office or putting together a casual weekend look. One of my greatest triumphs as of late was discovering a puffy-sleeve top that can do both — and I found it in the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's.
Currently on sale for $26, the POPSUGAR Stripe Puff-Sleeve Top has become one of my most cherished pieces. Available in both red and blue, it marries classic style with a trend-driven twist thanks to the nautical stripe and ample, but not overly voluminous, puffy sleeves (which hit at a very flattering point on the arm). So far, I've worn it a couple of times tucked into high-rise jeans with one of Summer's biggest accessory trends, the barely there naked sandal, and it's become one of the comfiest outfits I've worn that requires minimal effort but makes a serious impact. As someone who finds clothing myself in anything other than leisurewear and throw-on-and-go-dresses in the Summer a chore, this is quite the feat.
Whether you're a puffy-sleeve enthusiast like me or on the hunt for more easy-to-wear and ubercomfortable outfits for Summer (also me), ahead, shop the $26 top I'm planning to live in all season as well as the stylish extras I paired it with.
