Puffy sleeves will convert your basics to statement pieces

W ith summer 2021 knocking on our doors, your wardrobe can get a quick refresh with big puffy silhouettes. Bold and playful, the shape can elevate any of your basic ensembles, as seen on the runways. From Alberta Ferreti and Isabel Marant’s prairie dresses to even cotton jumpsuits at Jason Wu, designers relied on volume and proportion to make an impact in airy fabrics. Jump on the more-is-more bandwagon, which also seems to have won the nod of approval from celebrities such as Alia Bhatt and Sonam Kapoor Ahuja. We have curated a list of our season favourites ahead, including dresses, tops, shirts and tunics to help you ace this trend like a breeze.
