5 Ways to Cover Your Arms & Keep Your Cool This Summer

If you love the warmer weather but are not so keen on the style of attire that goes hand in hand with higher temperatures, then you will be pleased to hear that there are ways around this dilemma.

From investing in 100% cotton long-sleeved t-shirts to wearing the right accessories to rocking an off-the-shoulder number, keep reading to discover five ways that you can cover your arms and keep your cool this summer.

1.   Wear 100% cotton

A classic white t-shirt is crucial for the summer months, being able to be dressed down with jeans and glammed up with a midi skirt and heels. However, if you want to cover your arms, you will want to opt for one of these 100% cotton Women’s long sleeve t-shirts, which are designed to keep you looking and feeling cool all summer long.

Plus, they are super soft and made ethically in the UK, so you can enjoy peace of mind that your fashion choices are not having a negative impact on anyone else.

2.   Wear eye-catching accessories

You will be surprised at just how effective a few eye-catching accessories are in distracting the eye away from your upper arms and down to your wrist area. The bigger the bangles, the better, with bright and vibrant colours being perfect for spring/summer and having the ability to draw attention away from your problem areas.

3.   Choose off-the-shoulder tops

Seriously stylish and incredibly versatile, off-the-shoulder tops with cap sleeves or a cold shoulder are the ideal garment for those who want to keep cool while still covering up some of their upper arms.

Don’t be afraid to go bold and bright with colours for this style of top. Although you may think that black is the most slimming option, it’s summer, so a little colour is most definitely needed.

4.   Opt for eyelet sleeves

Another great style for those who want to camouflage their arms this summer without fear of getting sweaty, eyelet sleeves have tiny decorative holes that let air in but don’t reveal too much skin.

This type of top looks best in white, giving off an effortlessly chic and cool vibe that is perfect for afternoons in the sun.

5.   Pick sheer fabrics

As well as cotton tops which are known for being breathable, sheer sleeves that end at the elbow or forearm are also a great idea for covering up your upper arms and remaining cool. Try sheer chiffon or semi-sheet organic linen sleeves, which will feel light and airy but still do a good job of hiding your arms as you move about.

Alternatively, if you can’t find a sheer top that you like, or you think that this style is a bit too floaty for your tastes, why not try a cotton or linen top that boasts sheer insets?
