In the winter they are great to add an extra layer under sweaters or "sleeves" to the favourite things you would really love to wear but can't as they don't have sleeves, like a strappy dress or top layered with a shrug looks great. Perfect and stylish also worn with cropped sleeved jackets. So they allow you to utilizing a lot more of your wardrobe in a really practical and useful way! Try wearing full length or fold a “Cuff” down at the top to shorten the length and wear rushed down to have a shorter arm warmer look. Wear with casual clothes and layered up look or dress up in the evening with an evening dress.
This polar fleece fabric is anti pill and is machine washable at 40 degrees i recommend turning them inside out before washing in a machine and putting in a wash bag if you preferred they can simply be washed through by hand which will preserve the new look of them further this fabric ages well and washes up extremely well as it is dirt replant it does not tend to absorb stains easily into the fibres of the fabric .
Please note:The Elvin Arm warmer style only comes in plain colours and has the flower petal cuff design detail. The Camouflage and Rainbow prints are a simpler design without the cuff detail.
Despatch time will increase if you require a colour that is not in stock to complete your order where multiple purchases are made.
