Bell Sleeves and Stripes

When it comes to the details, the more drama the better. This is especially true with regards to the finishing touches of a fashionable ensemble. Whether you resort to statement jewelry, striking shoes, or bell sleeves, they all accomplish the same thing.

Yes! Another shirt to add to my wardrobe of dresses, rompers, skirts, and jumpsuits. When I first laid eyes on this top, 1970’s fashions immediately came to mind. The bell sleeves are oh so groovy and the serene color is perfect for the spring. Aside from it’s funky features, the fit is tailored and flattering on all shapes and sizes. For only $50 have yourself a fabulous piece that will coordinate well with flare jeans, palazzo pants, cutoff shorts, etcetera.

I paired this blue beauty with a woven skirt creating a fun throwback look! The multicolor pattern reminds me of retro upholstery and the frayed hem adds a playful element. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, when you are working with a statement piece, such as this top, simplicity is key. That is why I did not go overboard with accessories. I simply embellished the look with a boho tassel necklace and blue denim wedge sandals. Is it ironic that I have the song, “shake your groove thing” stuck in my head as I am writing this?!
