Moderate bell sleeves are one of my favorites to wear for my everyday OOTDs. Now we know that bell sleeves can go from modest to avant garde – I appreciate the drama of the avant garde variety, but not for everyday. My go to moderate bell sleeves gives me the right amount of boho and relaxed with a side of extra.
Wear it Unapologetically
I picked up this top from Forever 21 on sale for $8. Yes, $8. I love this top because it has a lot going on with the bell sleeves, the key hole slit in the front AND back, but it still reads minimalist to me. I decided to pair this top with my custom eShakti jeans, throwback red booties, and candy wrapper clutch that I got from Cancun several years ago.
This is the perfect outfit for a day date or day time social event that you want to be casual and comfortable in but you have to bring it up a notch.
Fast Tip: When rocking booties with jeans – do a small cuff to expose the top of the bootie and a little skin for an effortless and chic feel. Avoid tucking your jeans into your booties since it can look bunched up and a bit sloppy over time. If you want a more dramatic look, go ahead and make your cuffs larger. This is especially true if the inside of your hem has embroidery or other special touches to it.
