Reese Witherspoon's chic puff-sleeve top is the arm-flattering style I'll be wearing all summer

Reese Witherspoon always looks effortlessly stylish – and her latest casual chic look is a favourite of mine, particularly for it's arm flattering style. 

As I've got older, I've found certain areas of my body show signs of ageing quicker than others – the tops of my arms being one of them. So I am always on the hunt for tops that help flatter that area and make me look and feel confident to add to my summer capsule wardrobe.

My most recent style inspiration for just that comes from Reese Witherspoon's latest Instagram post, which is an outtake video with her lookalike daughter. Reese wears a couple of gorgeous outfits in the video, but it was her white puff-sleeve top from Dôen that really caught my eye. The simple-but-stunning piece has a waffle-like texture, with beautiful crochet details around the neckline and hems – and turns a casual everyday jeans outfit into something super stylish.

Mixing the detail with casual, Reese added cropped jeans, juxtaposed with brown sandals. And finished the whole look of perfectly with a simple gold bangle – it's the epitome of quiet luxury. 

Elsewhere in the video, Reese showcases another beautiful example of casual chic, with a pastel green silk shirt and jeans. And it's not just her I'm stealing style inspiration from. Her 24-year-old daughter Ava has clearly inherited her mother's talent for effortlessly style, wearing similarly exquisite knitwear throughout the video, starting with a chunky pink cardigan and finishing with a dark forest green jumper. Both of which Ava paired perfectly with light wash wide-leg jeans and, following her mum's lead, a simple gold necklace to tie it all together. 

When it comes to footwear, both women opted for tan sandals, but I'm already picturing pairing my new buy with some of the best white trainers
