Designer Puff Sleeve Dress Looks For SS24

With those warmer spring temperatures finally creeping in and summer days (hopefully) not far behind, slipping into a designer puff-sleeve dress is always a good idea. Firstly, you’ll look undeniably cute the moment you have one of these dresses on. Secondly, they’re so versatile you can wear them for countless dress codes! For example, the Ashlynn dress by Dôen. This stunning blue midi dress works perfectly with so many shoe styles from sneakers and flats sandals to kitten heels and wedges. So, you can dress it up or down for everything from Sunday strolls to dressy brunch dates. Style yours with the Ibor leather slingback sandals by Neous and the medium college chain bag by Saint Laurent for a smart/casual, throw-on-and-go ensemble you’ll want to wear on repeat.

Meanwhile, white midi dresses, especially those with puffed sleeves, are a must for summertime. Therefore the Florencia dress, also by Dôen, deserves a top spot in your warm-weather lineup. Style this dress with a cute pair of flats or flat sandals for the ultimate summer weekend look. I highly recommend the Loco small metallic leather shoulder bag by Valentino Garavani and the Almost Bare crystal-embellished PVC sandals by Aquazzura. The best part? This classic white midi dress will remain in style for many seasons and even years to come.

Make A Floral Designer Puff Sleeve Dress Your Summer Go-To

You can never go wrong with a floral print when finding the perfect designer puff-sleeve dress. No matter the occasion, they always look flawless and undeniably pretty. For example, the Evianna linen mini dress by Reformation. From the square neckline and voluminous puff sleeves to the flattering seamed waistline and mini-length skirt. This dress is sure to dazzle from every angle. Not to mention, it’ll work with everything from plain white sneakers and sandals to dressier shoes with a heel. I recommend styling this dress with a cute pair of shoes like the embellished ballet flats by Alaia. Then, add the Jackie Notte mini crinkled patent leather shoulder bag by Gucci to finish off the quintessential summer weekend look.

Finally, the Primrose organza dress by Sister Jane might be the cutest midi out there. With its flattering wrap design and vibrant pink florals, this dress will certainly sell out this season. Add it to your basket whilst you still can. Preferably alongside Loeffler Randall’s Minerva 90 feather trim satin sandals  Randall and Auzeen Sienna mini woven clutch which will match it perfectly.
