Be There With Bell (Sleeve)s On

In what I consider to be part two of "outfits that don't wear well under a jacket" (part one here), may I present for your consideration, the bell sleeve. I love the volume, but in order to wear this under a blazer or jacket, you have to neatly tuck the sleeve in around your arm, and then no one can see the best part of the top. Layering aside, I think this is an ideal "pumped-up" basic: it is black and white so it is easy to pair with almost anything (pants and shorts of all colors, denim, probably even a pencil skirt) and the bold stripe and sleeve detail add some visual interest to keep the outfit from looking too basic. 
Top | J. Crew (similar)
Pants | DL1961
Shoes | Paul Green
This top is from J. Crew, and it might have been last season, as I found it in-store on clearance, and it doesn't appear to be still on the website. However, they have an almost identical one, with smaller bell sleeves here. I am wearing an xxs. 

Do you have a layering trick for voluminous pieces? If so, I am all ears.
