Bjelle is a simple, yet striking design with the 3D shaping on the sleeves! This style is a spot on trend this winter when worn with a maxi skirt and boots. A long sleeved T-shirt or roll-neck can be worn underneath for extra warmth and dramatic impact! Bjelle is the Norwegian word for bell, echoing the shape of the sleeves and named after a gorgeous, newborn alpaca girl.
