Haute Ways to Cover Up Your Arms This Season

 - Aug 30, 2009
Reinventing everything from a simple dress to your basic blazer, sleeves take the fashion spotlight this season. From the arm-shy to the sci-fi-obsessed (a metallic jacket with ultra-peaked shoulders is for you!), there’s something for everyone. For the architecturally-inclined, think origami shapes and accordion pleats. Love doing things in halves? Consider a single-sleeve style. For texture fanatics, feathers, fur, and snakeskin are always sound choices.

Finally, if you’re fashion-forward enough and you don’t mind looking completely (and I mean completely) off-beat, then there’s always the option of growing out a gigantic afro--a là Sonia Rykiel--to cover up your arms on chilly days.
