Styling Tips for a Puff Sleeve Blouse

Puff sleeves are so in right now! I absolutely adore wearing a puff sleeve shirt or dress because it always makes me feel put together and classy. I have come up with a couple of looks that show how to style a puff sleeve shirt.


Puff sleeve blouse

Create a fun, summer look

This first outfit is a really fun summer look. I paired my blue puff sleeve shirt with a lace, white midi skirt. I love adding accessories and a pearl necklace seemed like the perfect fit for this look. This outfit is classy and super easy to put together!

Wear a turtleneck

Create a casual look 

This next look has a more casual feel to it. Wearing a turtleneck over my blue, puff sleeve shirt was a great way to layer. I love having my collar show outside of my sweater and I played with the bottom of the shirt as well to have some of it showing. Wearing high waisted pants adds to this gorgeous, old school look. 

Wear heels

Create a more dressy look 

For a bit more of a dressed-up look, wear a puff sleeve shirt tucked into a tailored pair of black pants. Pair this outfit with some black heels and it's a great professional or evening wear look.

Create a layered look 

Just because you are wearing a puff sleeve shirt doesn’t mean you always need to show off the puff. In this look, I left the blue shirt untucked, hanging over a leopard print midi skirt. Adding a denim jacket is a great way to add interest and an extra element of texture to the outfit.

Create the perfect casualwear look 

This next look is one of my favorites when it comes to casualwear. A pair of blue jeans and sneakers with the puff sleeve shirt tucked in is an amazing everyday look. If it’s a little chilly I love to layer this look with a long cardigan that helps to elongate my figure, 

Wear a blazer

Create a business look 

This next look truly is the perfect business outfit. Wearing a straight midi skirt with my puff sleeve shirt tucked in is a great way to feel both feminine and ready for the workday. Nothing says business quite like a blazer. This grey blazer works perfectly with the blue tones in this outfit. 

Wear a mini skirt

Create a ‘night out’ look

Still opting for the blazer over my puff sleeve top, in this outfit, I go for a night out with the girls, type look. Switching the midi for a mini skirt and pairing it with my black combat boots make for one stunning outfit. We know that I love a good accessory and this bag adds so much to the whole look. 

Wear a denim skirt

Create a look with denim 

You can never go wrong with denim. In this look, I chose to wear my blue puff sleeve shirt with a really funky denim skirt. Although the skirt has quite a lot of detail, it doesn’t take away from the puff element of the top, which is still the main feature.

Keeping with the denim trend, I switched out the skirt for a very nice pair of boyfriend jeans. Styling a puff sleeve skirt with different denim bottoms is always a success. 

Make it work for winter


Why not make this into a winter look by wearing boots and a coat? There are so many different ways to style a puff sleeve shirt! I would love to hear which look you like best in the comments!
