Puffed sleeves are the big trend that you're about to be wearing.

If there's one trend that we've seen in just about every fashion week show this year, it has to be puffed sleeves. Whether it's in paisley, polka-dots, chiffon or even in a striking metallic, every designer seems to have their own version of this statement sleeve.

This girly, playful and actually surprisingly flattering trend has infiltrated its way onto the catwalks of brands like , Lee Mathews, Alice McCall and Aje. So there's a strong bet that this is the style everyone will be wearing in six months' time. Just wait and see!

Alice McCall and Hansen & Gretel showed a demure version of this style. A gentler iteration that would be perfect to test the waters if you're still not 100% sold on this trend. But brands like Bec & Bridge, Aje and Thurley did not hold back. Their bold, voluminous, almost Victorian approach, is a statement for sure. These are the brands to look out for if you're wanting to fully embrace this high-fashion trend.
