I used to look at photos of dresses with puffy leg o’ mutton sleeves and laugh. However, the joke is on me now. Fashion houses such as Marc Jacobs and Prada pumped up the volume with bubble skirts, swing coats and, yes, leg o’ mutton sleeves for fall. As you might guess, the trend may not suit everybody. So some designers combined it with slimmer silhouettes either on the top or on the bottom. Better snap up these larger than life skirts or, “pouf,” they’ll soon be gone. Find skirts and get your pouf on at Nordstrom.com.
