Perhaps it was only a matter of time, but puffy-sleeve tops are back from the dead, and we’re not one bit upset about it. First, we saw the romantic blouse make a triumphant return on the F/W 18 runways in a series of ’80s-inspired silhouettes. Then, we saw them as the biggest trend of the summer in the bohemian style of milkmaid and peasant tops. Now, the shirt has continued into the fall, and we’re seeing it just about everywhere we look.
Despite the popularity of this iconic ’80s trend’s return, we understand that you might be hesitant to jump on the bandwagon—especially if your parents were the ones to pull off the staple the first time around. But hear us out: One scroll through the tops we’ve gathered below and you’ll want to add them all to your closet. Flirty, bold, and statement-making, we promise this is one old-school trend you won’t regret.
