Bell-arms, Bell-sleeves, winged-sleeve or flared sleeves, call it what you may but this head turning 70’s style made a comeback and is currently trending. It’s fun, dramatic, attention grabbing and one of the best styles for making a stylish fashionable statement. It can turn an ordinary person into the bell of the ball. It’s no wonder Hollywood, Nollywood stars and fashion bloggers love this design and they are flaunting it in different styles.

Wear it as a Midi dress
Midi dresses are perfect for that chic more grown up style. To add the winged sleeves with a midi dress gives it a bit more attractive detail. It connotes an openness in the person wearing it.

Tracy Nwagba also wore it in a red maxi by Ilare clothing and Christian Ciriano beautifully and elegantly crafted this design for his pre-fall 2016 collection.
