Bell sleeved sweaters are back and while I absolutely love them I don’t feel like they are practical for my every day mom life. However, I do love dressing them up a little bit for date night or wearing them a day that King and I are out and about rather than when I am stirring mac & cheese on the stove and worrying that my sleeve is going to dip into it ha. I love that they make such a statement without changing or adding to anything that you are already wearing.
There are so many different options out there when it comes to bell sleeved sweaters and I am wishing that I wasn’t pregnant so I could buy all the pretty lace ones that have come out for spring time. When I posted the photo of me on Instagram wearing this bell sleeved sweater I received a ton of messages on how to wear them, what to pair them with, and if they are really functional. I am here to answer all those questions for you!
Let’s chat about how to wear them. I feel like bell sleeve sweaters are a piece that stand alone really well on their own and make a statement. They are pieces that you can grab out of your closet and keep it super basic and simple with all while looking like you put a lot more effort into your outfit than you really did. Here are some tips to wearing them:
1 – Keep it simple. Pair them with jeans to keep it casual and let the sweater speak for itself.
2 – Don’t layer them, the sleeves are enough on their own that I don’t feel like they need a “third” piece to them whether it be a jacket or vest. Let it stand alone.
3 – Pair them with a simple heel or some simple booties. Yes I think they would be darling with studded boots or something like that, but keeping it simple lets the sweater really stand alone and speak for itself.
I hope this helps you to find some inspiration on what to wear with bell sleeve sweaters and to snag one for yourself! I linked my favorites in the widget above for you and I really am dying over that second white lace sweater and am trying to figure out if it is really possible for me to wear with this belly of mine!
Happy Thursday babes!! XX
