Katie Holmes in New York Wearing a Missoni Floral Tunic, Bell Sleeve Cardigan and Chloe Bag

Trend Alert: Bell Sleeves

If romance were a sleeve it would be a bell sleeve. Katie Holmes' floral Missoni tunic may be lovely, but what really conjures up the smell of roses is her slouchy bell sleeve cardi. If you're hesitant to play with volume, this is a beginner lesson. Bell sleeves come is all structures and configurations, choose one that's definitively you.

bell sleeaves are so cute, but katie's cardigan looks like it's falling apart and the top is hideous...

@ ckeller825: that dress is really cute and the bells aren't too crazy. You should definitely wear it. I like bells except that you can't roll them up and if they are long, I would worry that they'd get in my food since I'm so messy. ;)

I have the black version of the Twenty Two jacket in wool ... (it's not Twenty Two though, it's from Nordstrom). I don't know if this trend is new in the US, as I bought my jacket last year because it was trendy last year in the UK.
