If you’ve been following our spring trend coverage, you’re aware that romanticism is a key look for the season. One hero piece is the puffed-shoulder top. Darling and feminine, voluminous shoulders deliver an idyllic effect to any outfit whether you style them with high-waist jeans, a midi skirt or layered under a slip dress. Don’t assume they read overly prim and proper, though—styles run the gamut from low-cut necklines to peplum accents to corset-style detailing, done in cotton poplin, silk and floral prints. If these fairy-tale design elements sound up your alley, shop our edit of 13 puffed-shoulder tops ahead.
