So you've seen leg warmers come into fashion, but you're not quite ready to be hurtled back to the 80s? More doable, perhaps, are arm-warmers which are both stylish and functional. Essentially, they are like socks for your arms, but open on each end, some offering an integrated thumb hole, but all offering freedom of movement for all fingers. They come in a range of styles, from solids like sleek black, to pattered ones to add some flair to the muted greys and solids hot this season.
They can be worn in a variety of ways: over tight-sleeved sweaters, with a dress or the perfect way to extend the wear of your favourite T-shirt into the colder months.
