Keep ‘em bell-shaped, extra-long, ballooning or just plain cold-shoulder. A relative of the never-ending off-the-shoulder craze, play up your attires by adding – embellishments to sleeves, think ruffles, contrasting fabric – or have fun with their shape with volume, cut-outs, or extra length.

Ruffle affair

Eastern or western wear – ruffles don’t discriminate. Statement ruffles have been making rounds from fashion shows to different designer collections. Spotted here – a white blouse with a delicate lace, and huge ruffles cascading from the elbow. Paired with a gorgeous multi-coloured embroidered lehenga and a stunning pearl necklace to finish the look.

Big shoulders are happening, folks!

Puffy sleeves were the sort of fashion trend we dreamt of sporting since our youth – when days were spent playing princess games, watching princess movies, and dressing up as princesses. This black puffy sleeves blouse with a white saree is a trend packed with tradition, elegance and sheer silk.

Give ‘em the cold shoulder

Behold… a beautifully embellished front-open short shirt with delicately cut cold-shoulders looks super chic with matching nude trousers. Notice the tassled jingling from the ends of the sleeves? So exquisite.

Think black and bulky!

This season it’s all about the exaggerated sleeve. Go big and billowy in shape and dark in colour. The voluminous design looks particularly great when worn with straight or wide-leg pants. Trust us, this black bulky sleeves top is a must have in your wardrobe.

Ring the bells to my sleeve

If you’ve been wondering why everyone’s sleeves are getting longer and wider then it’s not just you. Designers have taken a strong hold of the bell sleeves and they are not letting go anytime soon. These new net bell sleeves with heavy embellishments are utterly chic, giving your formal attire some funk.

Fabulous flounce

Super trendy flounce sleeves don’t come with subtlety at all and pack ravishing femininity. The silhouette of the dress is all about the flounce, with hems left unfinished giving a dramatic tassel effect. Such tops pair well with cigarette pants and heels.
