A puff sleeve top is a must-have in every wardrobe, but most women don’t know how versatile they can be. Here’s a list I made to show you how you can strut your stuff in a puff!

19 Puff Sleeve Tops You Can Pull off Like a Pro

1. Mesh Puff Sleeves

Mesh fabric is a perfect material to support a tulle skirt, but now it’s shining on any puff sleeve top or dress. It looks intriguing and conservative at the same time.

I mean, just look at this black puff sleeve dress! The mesh shows off the right amount of skin, offering a sweet and sultry flair to the ensemble.

2. Off-Shoulder Puff Sleeves

Off-shoulder outfits are already pretty on their own, but who wouldn’t be able to resist the innocent charm that these puffy sleeves can offer?

These co-ords complement the angelic color and the chic eyelet details so well that it’s impossible to hate this whole look!

3. Peplum Puff Sleeve Top

Most puff sleeve shirts tend to be flowy and baggy to maintain the aesthetic appeal of the arms, but some of these don’t suit a lot of body types.

Fortunately, peplum puff sleeve tops exist! These are so flattering in a way that they accentuate the waist to look tiny and make the hips look wider.

4. Floral Puff Sleeve Dress

Don’t try to hide it—I know you own several flower-patterned blouses, skirts, and dresses—and there’s absolutely nothing to be ashamed of!

Want to add more to your collection? This super cute floral dress is already feminine on its own, but the puff sleeves really steal the show.

5. Puff Sleeve Top With Ruffles

If you’re the type of fashionista who’s always going for a boho-chic look, choosing ruffled tops with puff sleeves is the way to go. Not only do the sleeves add dimension to your outfit, but they also add texture.

6. Animal Print Puff Sleeve Top

Do you think your closet needs a little more oomph? Don’t be afraid to try clothes with animal prints for a more adventurous approach.

Of course, make sure to select clothing items that use faux material; you wouldn’t want to wear something you’d be guilty about later on, would you?

7. Puff Sleeve Blazer

Blazers are commonly sleek in structure, but this specific one begs to differ. The puff sleeves add a more casual and playful sparkle.

Want a blazer that looks less serious? Go for pieces with unique colors, just like this color-block jacket. The puff sleeves also add a quirky touch.

8. Puff Sleeve Jumpsuit

The dilemma: you need to wear something stylish yet professional for an important meeting. The solution: this super cute puff sleeve jumpsuit!

Why go for the regular playsuit or dungaree when you can go for a dressy onesie with puff sleeves? It’s the perfect smart-casual outfit!

9. Puff Sleeve Romper

If jumpsuits aren’t your style, then rompers might do the trick for you! They can show off the legs you’ve been engaging in during your workouts.

For a more innocent and romantic feel, go for rompers with wide-leg shorts. Don’t forget the puff sleeves that can achieve a sweet look for your ensemble.

10. Maxi Dress with Puff Sleeves
