Bell Sleeves Top

I have been intrigued by bell sleeves tops for a while but was hesitant to buy one until I came across one in Germany in December. I tried one on in a local boutique that I like to support and thought it would be a fun piece to add to my wardrobe. Wearing a jacket with it does pose a problem however...

I wore the top for the first time when we did some wine tasting in San Luis Obispo County. It was very windy and cold, and wearing the top with a jacket was a bit challenging. Nonetheless, I am happy that I bought it and that it does remind me of my hometown.




Here are some bell sleeves tops that have caught my eye:


Questions: Do you own any bell sleeves tops? If so, what jackets do you wear with them? Or do you stick to vests?

  1. I love bell sleeves too, I always roll the sleeves of a cardigan up. Or whatever I wear over a bell sleeve top.

  2. I absolutely love the bell sleeves, and I've been trying to cover up with vests when I wear them, so I don't hide the sleeves!!!

    1. Yes, vests work probably best! I don't have one to work with this top however. Maybe I'll find one...

  3. Such a pretty top Andrea! I love the bell sleeves but I think they're a little hard to wear. I think a vest is a great idea!

    I don't own any bell sleeves tops because I don't know how to wear a jacket with it. But I like yours!

    1. I think a vest is the easiest way, but rolling up the sleeves is another good option I think.

  5. I own a couple bell sleeves tops that I enjoy wearing. I usually wear the with a vest. Yours is very pretty, especially the lace on the sleeves.

  6. I love that top on you! It's beautiful! I've been wearing my bell sleeve tops with vests if I need extra warmth. Unfortunately jackets don't work that well!

    1. Yes, I think I'll have to look for a dressier vest...

  7. I just love this bell sleeved top and the metallic flats with it. I don't think I own any bell sleeve tops, I do have one top with ruffles that cascade down the sleeves... but, I haven't tried it with a jacket yet. I would think a vest would be the best option or alone!

  8. This is a very pretty bell sleeved top! I like that the bell is made from lace - so visually interesting. Your silver flats have been such a stylish workhorse in your wardrobe. They look great with everything! Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday, Andrea!

    1. Thanks, Jennie! And, yes, the silver flats have been one of my best purchases for sure. When I came across them at Banana Republic, I was out shopping with my son for his birthday present. I had been wanted some silver flats and some lace-up flats (separately) for quite some time at that time, and when I saw them I knew they were perfect. Plus, for some reason, they were reduced to $12 from $110 or so. I can't even count how many times I've worn them in the past 1.5 years, and they are still holding up very well. If just all purchases were like that...

  9. Love it! I really like bell sleeves and have one embroidered heavy cotton, burgundy, that is just gorgeous. I wear it alone - no jacket, sweater or vest covering it up!

    1. Yes, not covering up the sleeves (or other parts of the top) is the best idea!
