‘Puff-Sleeve Dress’ with a pocket and sleeves is a classic style
A pair of vintage-style puff sleeves dresses can have a classic look and feel but they can also be a source of comfort or style.
“It can be a great accessory for an afternoon of picnics and a weekend of skiing, but if you’re looking for a fashion statement it can be great as well,” said Kristi E. O’Neill, owner of the Puff Dress and Accessories boutique in Seattle, which has a full-line of jackets and pants for women and men.
“I think that the jacket, the skirt, the pants are all great ways to incorporate a bit of flair and a bit more style,” said O’Neil, who has sold many vintage dresses since opening her boutique in the fall of 2018.
“You want to add that little bit of personality and personality to it, and the pants, the jacket are great for that.”
The Puff Suit is one of a few styles that can incorporate the pocket, which can be worn in a casual, feminine way, as a statement piece, or as a formal piece for formal events.
It’s also a style that’s easy to wear with jeans, and can be layered with a skirt.
The dress has been on the market for some time, but O’Connor says that it’s still the most sought-after dress in the boutique.
“Puff suits are the perfect accessory for a party, but they also are great as a pair of dress shoes for a casual day,” she said.
The jacket and pants come in a wide range of colors, and O’Connors said she’s seen them come in from all over the country.
“We’ve had jackets from Canada, from the United Kingdom, from Japan, and we’ve had pants from New York,” she added.
“The dress is a great dress shoe for a woman and a great looking dress for a man.”
The classic design and feel of the puff sleeve is easy to pair with anything from a simple button down shirt to a casual skirt or blouse.
The pocket, of course, is a must.
“If you want a casual suit with pockets, I would definitely recommend the Puffs,” said the Seattle-based O’Reilly, who’s also the owner of The Dining Room, a boutique in Denver that also carries a wide selection of casual and formal outfits.
“There’s something about having pockets and pockets that you just can’t put in a plain dress shirt and a skirt.”
A few other vintage-inspired styles that will be on display at The Dating Room include a 1930s button-down dress, a 1930-s blouse, a 1920s dress shirt, and a 1930 dress pants.
The Dressing Room also sells vintage-looking jackets and skirts and dresses.
