The Most Flattering Top to Wear With Skinny Jeans

bell sleeve top


Style du Monde

Skinny jeans are great and all, but finding the perfect top to wear with them can be a challenge. If you wear a blouse that's too loose, you can look disproportional, but if you wear a top that's too slim-fit, you basically look like you're wearing a body-con dress (not that there's anything wrong with those). In an effort to meet right in the middle, might we suggest the shirt we think is the most flattering to wear with skinny jeans—bell sleeve tops?

Bell-sleeve tops are the perfect counterpart to a pair of skinnies because they offer the ideal amount of volume needed to offset slim jeans without overpowering your figure. And the great news is that they come in a wide variety of styles, ranging from a thin knit to an exaggerated poplin cuff. Ahead, we've rounded up the most flattering bell sleeve tops to wear with skinny jeans for your shopping pleasure.
