Bell sleeves are back for Autumn

Unless you’ve been marooned on a deserted island, you know that bell sleeves are having a huge fashion moment this Autumn. Fashion bloggers, editors, and street style stars are reviving this trend. Ahead, I spotlight one way to tackle the flared sleeve trend for Autumn, with purse-friendly pieces to suit every single budget.

The below Zara dress is one of the most recent items to find a home in my wardrobe (I’m wearing it again as I type this).  It’s light and easy to wear and totally that sort of piece you’d wear in different combinations, over and over again. While I couldn’t find this dress online, I did the hard work for you and found some similar alternatives, all under £50. I’m loving these 4 dresses from my high-street faves.


Colour-wise, go for black, tan, burnt orange and burgundy – or pastels for a modern spin – and wear with gladiator sandals now and knee-high boots when the cold settles in. Trust me, all the cool girls will be wearing big sleeves this season. I’ve paired mine with tan sandals from Dorothy Perkins and a sweet Chloe ‘Elsie’ handbag scored down in a fantastic sale at BrandAlley for an extra sophistication spin.
