Do you like puffed sleeves? Probably not a lot of people do, but are they in style? What does the style industry think about them now? Is it still wearable to have a puffed sleeve or is it outdated in fashion terms? Does your workplace have strict rules about whether or not you can wear puffed sleeves on the job, or is that a new trend for workplace uniforms as well? All these questions will be tried to be answered in today’s blog post.
Society’s view on puffed sleeves. As most people know who live in a modern world, there are a lot of fashion rules and tricks that one has to follow in order to be considered fashionable. Society is well known for changing their mind about what they consider fashionable. While this might be annoying to some, it is also important to keep up with society, just so you do not become unpopular or even look inappropriate in the public eye.
The way society views puffed sleeves is often known to be outdated and even a bit wrong at times. Women everywhere have found it hard to get away from their obsession with puffed sleeves, but as time goes on, a lot of people are starting to realize that the style is not popular anymore. Why? Because they are often seen as revealing. Not to mention the fact that they do not really go well with other outfits. For example, the puffs are too strong to wear with business pants and a blouse or business suit. Most fashionable women today know that you are only supposed to wear them on even casual occasions, for example at home, or if you are going out somewhere with your friends.
If there is one thing that can be said about the style industry, it is that they are very aware of what the consumer wants. They will always know what women prefer and how they would like to be dressed. They have spent years tracking what fashion trends are popular, and which ones are not worth your time anymore. Society and style industry often clash because the views of society are often different than the ones of the style world. This is why you often find that the views of society and the fashion industry are not always in sync with each other.
When it comes to puffed sleeves, the style industry has long realized that this style trend is no longer a popular one. Many times in order to get back in line with what society thinks, the fashion industry will always revert back to something that was popular years ago. This is why today’s style industry trends are focusing more on the ruffled sleeve idea. This is very similar to a puffed sleeve, yet much more subtle and not as much of an obvious choice for your outfit.
Sleeves and sleeve length in general are a very important part of the outfit. Some women may have slender bodies, but their arms appear bigger than they actually are. In order to make them appear smaller, you should wear puff sleeves rather than long sleeves. Puff sleeves will make your arms look smaller, slimmer and sleeker. If you want the opposite effect – to make your slim arms appear larger, it is best to wear long sleeves. The outfit that you are wearing should be carefully chosen. You should choose an outfit that will show off the puffed sleeves but will hide your long arms. If you are not sure about what to wear with puff sleeves, it is best to wear a dress that is above your knees. Puff sleeves look wonderful in dresses; they brighten up the whole outfit and make it more elegant and feminine.
Longer dresses should not be worn with puff sleeves. If you are wearing a dress that is longer than your knees, choose a coat to go with it over the top. If you want to wear a long puffy dress, make sure that you wear a pair of boots for winter. Your boots should be the same height as your puff sleeves. You can also make puffy sleeves work by wearing tights together with them or gladiator-style trousers.
Puff sleeves are a great way to emphasize your femininity and make you appear more elegant. Make sure that you choose the right outfit for it and that you match it properly so that you get an attractive look, rather than an unattractive one.
