Re: The "Puff" Sleeve: Yay or Nay?

I don't care for when the sleeve is gathered into the shoulder of a top or jacket unless it's for a young girl.

 

I DO like Puffed sleeves, especially the elbow length ones.Smiley Happy

I love that denim jacket and I like the royal turtleneck and the gray sweater.  I don't like a very exaggerated puff for myself.  I like the subtle ones.

Fashion is just getting sillier and sillier IMO.  I know that old is new again, but the recreation of old trends are more exergerated and way out there.  None of the puffed sleeves looked good. just too overdone.  Same with cold shoulder, tattered and worn looking jeans, tights (not leggings) with oversized tops.  I guess I just like normal looking clothes.

A puff at the shoulder is really tricky....that quarterback look is unappealing.  Might be a go on someone sixteen and skinny....but then, what isn't?

I like the sleeves.......not like the red striped top, but just a little gathering.  I have small shoulders and I can use all that help Smiley Happy

Definitely, nay. Does anyone and I mean anyone need puffing... no.

@lolakimono,  My first choice is the dark gray sweater (really nice and I would consider wearing) the jean jacket and the white top.  I also like the  first rust top for a younger woman out for an evening dinner.  Finally, a decent trend.  Cat Happy
