From ugly sneakers
to PVC and plastic
accessories, this year has already seen its fair share of head-turning style moments. Word on the street is that the Seinfeld
-approved "puffy shirt" is slated for a major comeback. Known for OTT frills and billowy sleeves, the style appeared on the fifth season of the popular '90s sitcom and has never been more in vogue. Cue the pomp and circumstance with one of these 17 souped-up, summer-approved blouses that capture the spirit of Jerry Seinfeld's once beloved puffy shirt.
Dôen Luca Top ($170):
This ethereal dusty rose blouse, complete with cascading ruffles, is the pièce de résistance that nobody saw coming.
