Bell sleeves were the trend of 2016 and it’s still going strong! There’s something about the dimension, depth and billowy freedom the sleeves create. It’s been one of my obsessions this F/W and I love seeing all the variations and details of the bell sleeves. I’ve seen HUGE bells (I mean, bigger than my head bell sleeves), lace up bells, tiered bells, ruffle bells, sheer bells, lace bells, embroidered bells, two tone bells… The list could go on and on.


Here are 7 homophones/meanings of the word “bell” that I found interesting.

1. Belle-Disney character from Beauty and the Beast

2. Belle-Beautiful in French

3. Alexander Graham Bell-Inventor of the first telephone

4. Bell peppers-Yummy! I love these

5. City of Bell-An actually city in California. I used to teach lessons there!

6. Bell helmets-Didn’t you own a Bell helmet as a child? I sure did. Now the hubby has a Bell moto helmet

7. Liberty Bell-A symbol of our independence, located in Philly, PA

    Dear Jen, given that everything looks great on you because you are beautiful and stylish inside, I love this outfit. The oversize bell sleeved sweater is perfect over that pencil skirt. The color combo is ideal too! Baci, Valeria – Coco et La vie en rose FASHION & BEAUTY

  4. You are so adorable with all your ‘Bell’ homophones/meanings ! Love this post and really love this entire look. I’ve loved a lot of the looks this past season featuring bell sleeves but none as extraordinary as this ! I also love the way you kept the look so streamlined and elegant.

  5. I am a huge fan of bell sleeves too ! Love the additional flare they add to any ordinary piece. Also love the black with light blue, very pretty !
