I've often battled with the idea of wingz. No, not the McCartney band. But the sleeves you can slip on under a sleeveless dress and cover up your arms.
- Provides arm coverage for those worried about having their arms on display
- Better alternative to permanently wearing a cardigan or shrug
- Promotes the idea that part of our bodies should be hidden
At least these were the issues I had before I was sent a set to review. They have sat on my shelf for some time now, as I've struggled with the issue of "What do I wear them with?!". I hadn't even tried them on!
I was wearing this beaut of a scuba skater dress from New Look Inspire that morning, but Mam and I were planning on going out for tea later on, and I was COLD.
Bad outfit planning Kathryn, BAD!
I had them in my bag, in the thought of asking my Mam if she wanted to try them out for me...
When, Ta-DA! My arms were covered for warmth, and I looked GOOD. WIN.
So, how do they work?
Two sleeves, tied together with a stretch of elastic, which sits under your bust like so:
And the other part rides up your back like a top part of a tshirt.
I got sent a pair in white, and I can see me wearing these in the autumn to aid with the transition from summer wardrobe to winter. - and that is what I now see the Wingz as a wardrobe life extender - making pretty sleeveless dresses winter appropriate! Go, give the lovely team at FatPhrocks a look, and see what you think!
Just goes to show, don't knock a piece of clothing until you've tried it!
Much love my lovelies,
