Unlike bell sleeves that appear sleek, bishop sleeves look soft and utterly feminine. You can easily spot them on lovely dresses; they just know how to compliment an outfit while standing out as a unique feature in their own right. This style, which balloons out towards the lower arm and gathers into a cuff at the wrist, looks amazing with lace designs, and chiffon, amongst other sheer fabrics.
While flounce sleeves look very similar to bell sleeves, they do tend to be a bit more feminine as well as subtle. There’s a separate piece of fabric, cut in a circular manner, and attached to the sleeve to create a ruffle effect which gives the flounce sleeves their unique flare. These sleeves come in all sizes – there are small, simple designs which flare out lightly towards the wrist, then there are more dramatic ones which feature large flounces attached at the elbows. Whichever size you go for, they will look trendy and super chic, either way!
Off-the-shoulder sleeves have been in trend for some time now, and their popularity only seems to be increasing!

The voluminous design of these sleeves looks especially amazing when you pair it with a nice fitted bodice and wear it with wide-leg, cropped, or straight pants.
