Dear Ljubenka...

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - FASHION NEWS -

I am re­ally self-con­scious about my arms. I al­ways end up wear­ing the same full-sleeve T-shirts to try and hide them. I want to start wear­ing things that are fun and stylish but won’t draw too much at­ten­tion to my arms. What do you sug­gest?

If your arms aren’t your favourite as­set, find­ing clothes that fit well, give enough cov­er­age, yet are fun and make us feel con­fi­dent, can be hard. I find the most flat­ter­ing point for a sleeve to end is just above your el­bow, as it draws the eye to the slim­mer part of your arm. Wear­ing darker colours on your top half can help you dis­guise your arms too. Bold ac­ces­sories [see pre­vi­ous pages] are also great as they can help di­vert the eye to other parts of your body. Ex­per­i­ment and don’t be afraid to go into a store and try on a lot of dif­fer­ent tops with dif­fer­ent arm lengths. You’ll soon dis­cover what works for you. Have fun with it!
