Trend Prediction: Bell Sleeves

I feel/hope that huge sleeves will make a comeback. I kind of feel like we're rushing through the decade trend these days. The 90s revival thing is getting stale already (to me anyway, though I DO get tired of things quickly), and I'm kind of thinking the 00s are going to be in soon. I picked up a copy of W and they were suggesting wide-legged jeans so we may be already there.

While I've been loving the dolman/batwing sleeve that's been very in the last 10ish years, I still have a soft spot for bell sleeves. Like really huge openings.

Also I may or may not still be very into GoT. I'd kill for some floor-length sleeves.

What do you guys think? You think bell sleeves are going to make a comeback?

  3. I really like them, but they're one of those styles I just can't wear; pretty much everything I own is sleeveless, and on top of that I'd have a freakout with such big sleeves. I approve of their return, however!

  7. I like it on other people stylewise, but I´ve always found bell sleeves to be impractical. I thought bell bottoms were a hint to the 70s, with all the hippie colorful shit that´s been in stores lately.
