Save or Splurge: Bell Sleeves

Cheap Prom Dresses

It's official: everyone is rocking the statement bell sleeves today! From the blogs to the fashion magazines, it is clearly one of the hottest trends right now. And anyone who likes to make a style statement should get on it. I myself had been wanting to try them too because the exaggerated and dramatic sleeves can add an ethereal but somewhat flirtatious flair to any outfit! If you have been contemplating on trying out the bell sleeves trend, too, you have come to the right place. I am back with another edition of my Save vs Splurge posts and (you guessed it!), I am talking about this trend:


I have compiled some of my coveted bell sleeve dresses online and these are all under $100 (some even less than $50):

Inspire Me Black Floral Print Dress
Blue and Ivory Embroidered Dress
Forest Green Lace Dress
Black Bell Sleeve Dress
Black Gingham Bell Sleeve Dress
Red Bell Sleeve Dress


If you want to invest in more quality, designer pieces, you can find my picks below (all over $100):

Free People Back to Black Mini Dress
Rachel Zoe Bell Sleeve Dress
Cinq a Sept Cosette Lace Dress
Ministry of Style Marrakesh Dress
Keepsake Lighthouse Dress
