The Fashion Memo

The micro trend: Puffed sleeves


SS18 is all about ’80s volume, and when it comes to sleeves, that means the bigger the better. Putting a modern spin on the power shoulder, this season’s versions feel lighter – think milkmaid blouses with voluminous sleeves and feminine yet dramatic boleros. Make a beeline for A.W.A.K.E., Caroline Constas and Rosie Assoulin for exaggerated silhouettes that are still sophisticated and polished. To temper all this volume, keep the bottom half of your outfit sleek – tailored pants, straight-leg jeans or pencil skirts are the puff sleeve’s sartorial partner in crime.
