Lady Gaga just gave the puff sleeve trend a dramatic edge.

On Friday, the songstress stepped out in New York City, wearing a polka dot blouse that was equipped with the boldest, billowing sleeves. The shirt featured exaggerated fabric that cascaded down past Gaga’s arm, stopping just above her knees.

Puff sleeves are having a major moment this summer. The style is airy, whimsical and adds a bit of drama to even the most relaxed looks. The design was also big on the spring ’21 runways with labels like Ulla Johnson and Isabel Marant showcasing different iterations of the style at their shows.

Letting her blouse be the statement of the look, Gaga paired the puff sleeve top with a classic black pencil skirt. The high-waisted piece added a refined and old Hollywood feel to her look as she also opted for cat eye sunglasses and styled her hair in a sleek updo.

As for footwear, Gaga went timeless in a pair of black pointed toe pumps. The shoes, which are from Jimmy Choo sat atop a stiletto heel.
