The Best Balloon Sleeve Sweaters For Winter and The Holidays!

Style expert, journalist and fashion blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 20 of the best balloon sleeve sweaters! They're perfect for winter and the holidays. You can dress them up or down easily and effortlessly.

 

 

It’s no secret, statement sleeves have been one of the hottest fashion trends for nearly five years. I was obsessed with bell sleeve tops when they gained popularity, and was a little hesitant to try puff sleeves when they became a hot trend about two years ago, but now absolutely adore them, especially this dress! This season I have fallen head over heels in love with balloon sleeve sweaters.

One of my favorite things about balloon sleeve sweaters is they have the power to dress up any outfit! They look fab with jeans, wide-leg trousers and skirts. Some are perfect for the office (or Zoom calls while working from home) while others are perfect for a casual winter afternoon, Thanksgiving with the family or Christmas morning brunch!

If you’re searching for the perfect balloon sleeve sweater for a variety of occasions, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 20 of the best balloon sleeve sweaters for women of all ages.

 

Casual Balloon Sleeve Sweaters For Winter

What’s the weather like in your area? It’s been in the 70s/80s lately, and I am absolutely relishing this glorious weather! Tomorrow fall-like weather is supposed to hit! While I’m going to miss living in t-shirts and shorts, one thing is for sure I’m excited to wear my new sweaters! First on my list is this trendy and affordable neutral 1.State Sweater. It reminds me of one that Renee Zelwegger wore recently. This sweater is available in a multitude of colors. It will look great with your skinny jeans and ankle boots.

Bobble Sweaters Are A Must For Winter
