The Trumpet Sleeve

Photography by AnyaFoto
Looking to add a little flare to your style? One of my favorite trends for this upcoming fall season is the trumpet sleeve, or more commonly known as the bell sleeve. Talk about a serious throwback to the 1970's! What exactly is a trumpet sleeve? The trumpet sleeve is a sleeve that gets increasingly wider from the elbow to the wrist. It adds the perfect amount of drama to any blouse, tunic, sweater or dress. I personally love how this tunic features an extreme flare (similar to that of a '70s bell bottom pant leg).  The sleeves are finished off with little pom-poms. They really make the look magical. I felt so wizardly in it ;).

The trumpet sleeve works well with almost every body type. It's one of the few styles that can be extremely flattering on your arms. What throw back trends will you incorporate into your fall style? As you can tell, the '60s and 70's will be at the core of my fall wardrobe!
