August is here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just concluded and the kids are going back to school. I seriously cannot believe how fast this year is going by. Time flies when you’re having fun I guess? If you’ve been hanging out on Pinterest or Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that bell sleeves are all the rage this season. Today I’m sharing my favorite bell sleeve tops that are great for all budgets.
Here is a roundup of some of my favorites that I’ve recently posted on Instagram:
The Best (Budget Friendly) Bell Sleeve Tops
This top has the softest fabric and a loose, breezy fit. I feel like this brand also runs a little large, so I ordered an XXS. It will be best paired with skinny jeans, leggings or shorts. Price: $29
This bell sleeve top also has dolman sleevels so I found it a little tricky to style. It’s super soft and comfortable though. Due to the looseness, I’d recommend sizing down and doing a partial tuck to help show your shape. It will look best with fitted pants, structured pants and shorts. It could be suitable for work or the weekend. Price: $39
Bell sleeves: check, Stripes: check, knot front: check! This shirt has all of the elements of the perfect top so when I saw it, I knew I had to have it. The fabric is lightweight, soft and cool to the touch and it comes in tons of colors. The bell sleeves are short so if you’re not so sure about the trend it’s a great top to ease yourself into it. It will be best paired with jeans and shorts but could also work with fitted skirts. It’s definitely more of a casual top than some of the others. It also has a much more flattering and narrower fit than the previous two. Price: $49
This top is for certain going to be my go-to date night top this fall. It is fitted through the arms and has a straight fit through the body making it perfect to wear with skirts, shorts, jeans or even slacks. The fabric is definitely dressier and is a polyester blend which would make it great for work or the weekend. This one is priced the highest but probably the most versatile. Price: $52.
If you’ve been loving this trend just as much as me, I’ve linked a few others that I think you’ll also adore:
