Everyone on Instagram is wearing the 80s-inspired puff sleeve right now

We are so here for this.

24 Nov 2018

It’s a trend that’s been brewing on the catwalks for a while (we see you, Saint Laurent back in SS17), but fashion obsessed as we are, we must admit we hadn’t really considered trying it IRL until we started seeing some of the world’s coolest fashion influencers rocking it.

Oh yes, fierce 80s-inspired puff-sleeve dresses are back, and we are so here for it. Especially with Christmas party season coming. What could be better than power shoulders for your glam festive look?

Super-cool fashion blogger, Frédérique Harrel, wore hers in Clueless-esque yellow plaid, offset with a brightly printed head wrap.

Gilda Ambrosio, one half of the design duo behind Milan label Attico, along with Giorgia Tordini, went for classic black with her puff-sleeve dress – sky-high heels with an ankle-tie detail completing the look. (And the marble staircase helped, too.)

American actress Alison Brie wore her Dundas leopard-print puff-sleeve dress (extra points for two trends in one) at a pre-Emmy’s party in Hollywood.
