You might have thought that the days of this 80s-inspired comeback trend were numbered but supersized sleeves are here to stay. Puff sleeves and balloon sleeves (potato/potato, but if you’re being picky the balloon sleeve gathers back to arm-width, while the puff sleeve may not) were everywhere for AW21 and the trend is set to stretch into SS22, everywhere from the runways to the high street. And since they’ve been a firm fixture on the design radar for almost three years now, the chances are you’ll have a few pieces from last season to recycle, too. Looking to add to your wardrobe? Choose your item and up, up and away; balloon sleeves are sure to instantly lift your spirits. Shop our edit of puff sleeve dresses, blouses, tops and knits.
