While many of us can't resist the siren call of a logo handbag, right now there's a much subtler option that will just as effectively communicate your love for fashion. It's all in the details: A bell-sleeve sweater with extra-long sleeves is a trend that will tell everyone in the know that you're a fashion person. 

The trend is all over the street style scene and is ubiquitous on Instagram, but it doesn't feel overblown in any way because it's such a small detail that can be easily missed—there's nothing in-your-face about this trend. Bell sleeves can also be found on a wide range of sweaters, from camel turtlenecks to oversize cardigans, so there's no monotony here. Scroll down to see how fashion people are wearing bell-sleeve sweaters, and shop our favorites.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
