​Puff Sleeves: The Romance Of The Catwalk

Posted by @charlottesthriftyglitterbox on 16th Mar 2021

With the 80s references appearing on our catwalks as far back as 2018 it is always surprising to see that which, at first glance looks to be a fair-weather trend, shifting and changing and living on.

"From dresses with huge ballooned shoulders at Loewe to trench coats with gathered sleeves at Altuzarra, get ready for even more shoulder action this year.” Stylist.

With romantic vibes powering through every area of our lives, from the Bridgerton cap sleeve on Netflix to the dream-like, lace covered ‘Cottagecore' trend overtaking our social media, the puff sleeve is set to remain on the style horizon and, here at Ruby La La, we are excited to see where the designers will take it next!

Here’s just some of the ways the designers wowed us with their sleeve power on the Fashion Week catwalks this year.

At Ruby La La, we love to keep our eyes on the trends coming fresh off the international catwalks, but we know that choosing pieces for the shop which are suitable for living day-to-day in is crucial to our clients too. As such, we have a number of stunning items in-store, (roll on 12th April), and online now which will enable you to give a nod to the puff sleeve, or even welcome it in with open arms! So whether you want to play it safe or turn heads this Spring, we can help you style this beautiful, dramatic look in a way that will feel just right for you.
