How to cover up your arms and stay stylish and chic
Grab a Cape and be a Style Hero
It can be easy to think that only sleeves cover arms but have you considered a cape? Capes are not only bang on trend they are also a perfect way to conceal and camouflage upper arms. Adding drama, glamour and a touch of military swish to any outfit we challenge you not to feel awesome whilst wearing a cape. We love to team them with a narrow trouser or skinny jean and heels for a sleek finish. Check out some of our favourite examples below.
Wrap it Up
A wrap, shawl or kimono is a great versatile cover up solution. Available in a never ending range of colours, designs and materials there is a wrap for all seasons and all occasions. We think that the wrap is the perfect arm cover up for dresses and can look really pretty as part of a wedding or formal outfit. Team softer materials with structured outfits for a stylish contrast. We have brought together some of the best wrapped options available now below.
A biker jacket is a timeless classic that adds some serious cool to your cover up. This is an investment piece that you will reach for time and time whether it’s lunch with the girls or a hot date. Although traditional leather is always chic check out other material and colour options. We are partial to a soft suede which adds femininity and elegance to a masculine look. Pair with a great pair of jeans for a fabulous of duty look. We have curated a few of the best biker jacket looks for right now below.
