Flabby arms are annoying. They seem to be a by-product of aging, and no one wants their arms flapping in the wind. Many women are self-conscious about their arms and want tips on how to cover them. Here are six stylish ways to cover your upper arms in dresses, jumpsuits, and tops for the summer.
A lot of summer dresses, jumpsuits, and tops are sleeveless. The summer months can be hot and humid, especially if you live in the deep South. You have two choices: let your arms shine in the wind and stay cool, or try to cover them in the coolest way possible.
Stylish Ways To Cover Your Upper Arms With A Blazer
In summer, I find myself reaching for dresses a lot. They are a quick one-and-done item; you can dress them up or down. I like sleeveless dresses since they give you lots of options. One of the stylish ways to cover your upper arms when wearing a dress is with a blazer.
The only issue with wearing a blazer is that it can be hot and confining. This Oversize Linen Blend Blazer is unlined, which helps to keep you cool. I’m wearing a medium, but I have it pinned in the back to make it fit. It is oversized, so you need to size down one size.
Another one-and-done item I wear a lot during the summer is a jumpsuit. I love jumpsuits, and one with a deep v-neck like this one is the easiest to get on and off. Jumpsuits that don’t have buttons or zippers are what I look for since they can easily shimmy on and off when you need a bathroom break.
Stylish Ways To Cover Your Upper Arms With A Cardigan
Cardigans are one of my favorite items since they can be so versatile. They cover your arms, provide warmth, and are great at creating the look of a waistline. I use cardigans to hide my sides’ outer edge, creating the illusion of a thinner silhouette.
This colorful linen blend cardigan is extra versatile since it can be worn in four ways. I’m wearing it open front, but I’ll wear it differently later this summer.
Stylish Ways To Cover Your Upper Arms With A Striped Blazer
Wearing a blazer can be a challenge when you live in the South. Even though I usually want my blazers lined, I look for unlined blazers for the summer months.
I love this striped blazer since it is linen. Linen helps to keep you cool in the summer, so this would be one of the perfect stylish ways to cover your upper arms and stay cool. This blazer will look great with white pants or denim jeans, so I’m sure I’ll wear it often.
Stylish Ways To Cover Your Upper Arms With A Printed Scarf
Scarves are incredibly versatile and can be worn in a lot of ways. There are many videos showing creative ways to tie scarves around your neck, on handbags, and as jackets.
Scarves are generally lightweight but provide enough coverage to cover your arms and keep you warm in the summer. This floral one by Kate Spade is beautiful, and I love how it looks with the jumpsuit. This would be perfect for wearing to a summer wedding or out to dinner since restaurants can be chilly.
Stylish Ways To Cover Your Upper Arms Wearing A Swimsuit Cover-Up
Thinking outside the box can give you lots of stylish ways to cover your upper arms. Who would have thought about wearing a swimsuit cover-up as a stylish fashion item?
This crepe swimsuit cover-up is perfect for covering up your arms. It is a statement piece that will look great with jeans and a tee, shorts, dresses, and as a cover-up when you head to the pool.
Look at the vibrant colors and hot pink tassels. Here is the matching one-piece swimsuit in case you want to take this on your next summer getaway. Here are a few cover-ups that would look great with sleeveless dresses, jumpsuits, or tops.
A Feminine Denim Jacket Is Perfect For Covering Your Upper Arms
I love wearing denim jackets all year long, even in the summer. Because of the heat, you’ll have to choose lightweight jackets in the summer.
This adorable denim jacket is slightly cropped for a modern look. It also has a fringed hem and puff sleeves for a feminine look. I prefer wearing light-wash denim in summer, and this jacket is a home run for me. It is more expensive than the items I usually choose, so I’ll link to a few more affordable options.
Why I Love Shopping At Nordstrom
I love shopping at Nordstrom because they offer a wide range of products from a variety of brands. And they carry high-end luxury and designer brands, as well as more affordable options. This makes it easy for everyone to find something within their budget range.
Nordstrom is known for its excellent customer service, offering free shipping and free returns; it is super convenient. I love trying on clothing in the privacy of my home, but I hate paying for shipping and returns. That is one reason I love shopping at Nordstrom; trying new clothing styles never costs me anything. Nordstrom offers BOPUS (Buy Online Pick Up in Store) and contactless curbside pickup options.
