This year kicked off with the off-the-shoulder craze, but it's ending with the bell-sleeve tops craze. Fashion girls can't get enough of these dramatic tops, and we're happy to report that the trend is perhaps even more flattering than off-the-shoulder tops. What makes bell-sleeve tops so slimming is the voluminous fabric at the wrists, which balances out the arms and makes them look slimmer in comparison. Not only that, they instantly make any outfit that they're a part of feel fresh, interesting, and almost ethereal. 

Brands and retailers have been committed to endorsing the trend this year too. The bell-sleeve look, which was once reserved for flowy bohemian tops and dresses, now feels much more sophisticated, and wide bell sleeves can even be found adorning structured tops. And unlike off-the-shoulder tops, you can ever wear bell-sleeve tops to the office and to other conservative affairs, in addition to nights out. So basically, you can wear them just about anywhere (although we'd advise against wearing them to an Italian restaurant, for obvious reasons).
