If you’re looking for instant gratification the next time you add a piece to your closet try this. Add a trending top in a style that is also figure-flattering on real women. Puff sleeve blouses will definitely be making a fun and fashionable appearance in every women’s closet this summer.
Flattering Fit Tips for Puff Sleeves
A little extra lightweight coverage on our arms is something most women welcome. Here are a few fit tips to keep in mind especially if you are broad or busty.
Keep your neckline open. Squareneck styles are super flattering.
Avoid sleeves that stop at the bottom of your bustline where you’re already fullest. Try a long-sleeve instead. This solid style from Nordstrom under $60 and Aztec printed style by Vince Camuto both come in 4 colors.
If you have more length than width in your torso avoid cropped lengths. Instead, choose styles that hit closer to your hip bone.
Don’t overdo the volume on top. The puff sleeves are enough. Keep your overall shape slim by choosing a blouse that “tacks” or touches you close to your armpit.
Puff Sleeve Blouse and Jeans
Dress up your jeans with a pretty puff sleeve blouse. These styles go great with this season’s newest flare leg denim silhouettes.

Puff Sleeve Blouse and Summer Skirt
Keep your cool when it’s hot in this outfit combination, from my Summer Capsule Wardrobe, that works for a backyard BBQ or baby shower! Skirts give you more top options too. An elastic waist skirt sits higher and meets and greets your typically tiny crop top, elongating the leg and narrowing your waist.
Endless Rose makes great affordable fashion tops like this.
A puff sleeve jean shirt. Brilliant!
I couldn’t resist this eyelet puff sleeve top under $25. It comes in 4 colors! I might get two.
