Fun sleeves have been taking over 2019 fashion and we’re just sitting back and letting it all happen. By “sitting back,” we mean we’re snatching up every style imaginable and not letting any sale pass Us by, but the point is, we’re obsessed. Balloon sleeves, dolman sleeves, kimono sleeves, butterfly sleeves . . . the list goes on and we’re all about it. Currently, we’re especially feeling the soft and subtly-glamorous effect of bell sleeves, and this top is literally doubling up on that effect, making it a must-have!
The Alfani Bell-Sleeve Blouse was created exclusively for Macy’s shoppers, so this is the only place to pick it up. That’s why this sale is even sweeter, with nine colors currently sitting at 25% off and another at 56% off! For a fan-favorite piece such as this, which has almost 200 reviews, this is a deal that deserves our attention!
One shopper called this “a must” for their wardrobe, while another commented on how it “looks and feels great,” checking off both comfort and style elements. Another shopper, who owns three colors, called the fit “so flattering,” and others agreed, one saying how they “receive several compliments” every time they wear it out. Another added bonus, which sometimes we don’t think about when we’re super excited over a piece of clothing, is that others also reported that it “resists wrinkles,” so we can keep the iron in the closet!
This draping top has a relaxed fit, with its smooth and light fabric just barely grazing our skin. It features a V-neckline and a hem that hits right around the hips, making it easy to tuck in, but chic to leave out as well. The front of the top is lined, so we don’t have to worry about accidentally achieving a see-through look!
The starring attraction of this Alfani blouse is, of course, the bell sleeves. They add “the perfect amount of flounce” to the top, flaring out around the elbows and ending in a gorgeous ruffle around the wrists. What makes these bell sleeves especially unique is that they’re doubled up! There are two layers of the sleeve, the top one ending slightly above the bottom one. Instead of adding bulk as some layers might, this actually creates an even more lightweight, voluminous effect! The sleeves can flutter freely, and because they’re not too long, so can our hands!
Alfani brands itself as “a go-to destination for modern, wear-to-work essentials that complete every look.” It concentrates on creating pieces that are easy to mix and match with the rest of our wardrobe, their versatility acting as a stress-reducer. That means no more meltdowns over having “nothing to wear” even though we’re looking at a wardrobe full of clothing!
This bell-sleeve blouse is currently available in 10 colors! Some shades are starting to sell out, so we have to act quickly. Coming in at 56% off is Red, a vibrant, orange-red shade that will make sure we’re the center of attention. If we feel like it, we can tone it town by tucking it into black bottoms and subtly accessorizing, or we can go full-out bold and play with other colors like bright blue!
For an already-toned-down red, we can choose Cranberry Spice shade, which is soft and reminiscent of crisp and beautiful fall days. Other colors include Pottery Clay, a neutral that falls right where purple, brown and beige meet, and Alf Modern Lilac, which is a truer, floral purple. It’s also on the verge of selling out!
Also giving off spring, summer and early fall vibes is Tuscan Gold, and the darker Marigold Petal. Rounding out the more colorful options are Alf Dark Fig, a deep berry purple, and Glazed Cobalt, a blue that sits just at the line separating dark and bright. We can also keep it simple by choosing Deep Black or Soft White, which we’ll wear over and over again.
This top is an easy choice when we need something totally suitable for the office, but fun and fashionable enough to wear out afterward for an end-of-day cool-down. It also has the weekend calling our name! We’d wear this blouse to an Instagram-worthy brunch, a shopping trip downtown or even to a more casual date night! The options are opening up as we speak!
