As we start to transition our wardrobes from summer to fall, I'm quite happy to report that the bell sleeve is not going anywhere.
This trend elevates any outfit by providing a bit more movement and a nice amount of drama. I love that it's universally flattering. What makes the bell-sleeve silhouette so flattering is the voluminous fabric, which balances out the arms and creates a slimming effect. The only downside? Reaching across the table at a restaurant or eating a burger may be a little more challenging (stain alert).
I love that this dress featured bell sleeves in a bohemian chic style. The loose fabric creates an almost ethereal look and is very lightweight. This dress is amazingly one size fits all and the mauve is a perfect color to take us into fall. I paired it with a longer necklace to create interest, but you could also style this dress with statement earrings and a belt. If you want to purchase this particular dress, it can be found at Scout & Molly's.
