I'm Officially Declaring That This Trend Will Actually Be in My Closet Forever

About a year ago, I remember asking my fellow fashion-industry insiders what trends they were buzzing about, and every single one of them mentioned the puff sleeve. Over time, the conversation on puff-sleeve dresses and tops has shifted from it being trend-driven to it being a wardrobe staple that everyone should have in their closet for life.

Specifically, there's one take on the anti-trend trend that I think everyone needs in their closet. The power of a white puff-sleeve top should not go unnoticed. When you have a wardrobe staple like that in your closet, you can wear it with pretty much anything that you own. The sleeve detailing elevates the piece, and it's a great swap for the white T-shirt you've worn time and again. Whether you're more of a puff-sleeve top or dress person, the 25 pieces below will definitely catch your eye.

Hot pink and puff sleeves are two of my favorite things. Seeing them together in one piece makes me a very happy girl.

I've never seen a better dress—it's perfect.

French girls love the puff-sleeve top, which just further confirms how much I love it too. When paired with a denim skirt and classic bag, it will never steer you wrong. 

This brand does not take the term "puff-sleeve" lightly.

My Ganni poplin shirt remains essential in my wardrobe.

The knot makes this stand out among other cutout dresses.

The love that I have for this dress may or may not have inspired me to write this article. If you're looking for a sign that puff sleeves are here to stay, a number like this would be it.

The Peter Pan collar is my obsession.

And now, I just have to have a picnic on the water. When you have a good pair of blue jeans, you must finish them off with a puff-sleeve top.

The cutout is an extra-special touch.

Anything cropped wins me over.

If there's anything I love more than a puff sleeve, it's bright colors. Your next brunch will look even better when you have a dress like this.

I had to go out with a bang. This dress is too good.
