We Predict You’ll Be Wearing This Trend This Summer

We Predict You’ll Be Wearing This Trend This Summer

Okay, so that may be a sweeping statement but this is no ordinary trend. In fact, we here at IMAGE HQ think bell sleeves are pretty extraordinary, in more ways than one. Just look at Kate Foley’s bold, graphic design or Gilda Ambrosio’s jet-black sleeves. The voluminous proportions are dramatic but not overwhelming and feel surprisingly feminine. Keep the rest of your look pared back – a pencil skirt or a pair of form fitting trousers will do nicely.
