Power puff, girls; Style on Sunday; Arm yourselves with 80s style sleeves.


PUFFY sleeves aren't going anywhere for spring summer '19 - the volumous 80s favourite is bigger and bolder this season.

The romantic sleeves, often paired with a square or sweetheart neckline, were a huge hit on the SS19 runways and were seen everywhere from Brock collection to Rodarte, Saint Laurent to Mara Hoffman and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi.

Kate Spade offered an understated puffy sleeve at NYFW, while Marc Jacobs brought down the house with his version of the pretty trend.

The princess-inspired look has again been a huge hit on the awards season red carpets.

Meanwhile, Lily Collins looked nothing short of sensational last January when she walked the red carpet at the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala in Los Angeles.

Kendall Jenner, Margot Robbie and Emily Ratajkowski have also been showing us how to wear the 2019 neck/sleeve combo.
