Ways To Wear A Sleeveless Top If You Don't Want To Get Your Arms Out

We’ve all got our body foibles. For some, it may be chicken skin, for others their thighs. Though friends and family call us silly and tell us to get over ourselves, sometimes the only way to feel comfortable is to not draw attention to whatever makes us uncomfortable - and for me, it's my arms. Though I don’t think I should have to hide my body, sometimes I just want to. And, that should be my prerogative. However, with the rise of the going ‘out-out’ top and fashion’s weakness for spaghetti straps I’m left with a dilemma: how can I wear a sleeveless top yet still feel comfortable? Let these five women show you - and me - how…

1. Get Shirty

Leandra Medine just served up a styling solution for tricky tank tops. Technically speaking, this is one for the cooler months when irrational weather means layering is a must. Use a crisp, starched shirt to delay jacket season.

2. Buy A Blazer

A structured layer you can drape across your shoulders will make you feel infinitely more comfortable.

3. Add An Under Layer

Make the daytime case for a slinky slip or a post-watershed top by channelling the ‘90s with a white tee worn underneath. Not only will it add structure but it will prepare you for inclement weather.

4. Open Sesame

Though cardigans are undergoing a rebrand, we’re still not convinced about their edginess. But, Dua Lipa’s silky mint shirt, on the other hand, we can get down with.

5. Dream Team

The idea of a shawl seemed so passe right up until the moment Paloma Elsesser took to the CFDA red carpet it this tangerine dream of an Adam Selman outfit. All of a sudden, the concept of a silk wrap suddenly seemed the definition of chic. Sold.
