Gear­ing Up SLEEVES TO GO:

The Denver Post - - TRAVEL - SleeveyWon­ders Slip-on Sleeves are $42 to $59, de­pend­ing on style and ma­te­rial, at sleeveywon­ders.com.

Ex­pe­ri­enced women trav­el­ers know that the best way to get the most ver­sa­tile use out of the fewest gar­ments is to stick to ba­sic mix-and-match col­ors in tops, pants, skirts, dresses, etc. But how do you pack for sig­nif­i­cant tem­per­a­ture shifts, other than cov­er­ing up with a shawl or jacket that may blah your look? With a fab­u­lous new cre­ation called Sleevey Won­ders, that’s how— and wow! Think of th­ese as slip-on sleeves in a va­ri­ety of col­ors, ma­te­ri­als and styles that, worn un­der sleeve­less out­fits, turn them into sleeved ones, rang­ing from sporty to dressy. The sleeves are ac­tu­ally at­tached (but with­out shoul­der seams) to a stretchy un­struc­tured midriff bodice worn over a bra and sealed with a sim­ple mid­point clasp. Wear the clasp in front, and you’ve got a deep vee that won’t show un­der any but plung­ing neck­lines— un­less you skip the shirt. Wear the clasp in back and you get a mod­est scoop neck front (with the deep vee in the back) that can add a lay­ered look to V-neck or un­but­toned tops. An off-shoul­der ban­deau model bares a flashy bit of up­per arm (worn un­der, say, a tank top), but still sup­plies sleeves. Sleevey Won­ders come in stretch jersey, sheerer mesh, lace, fish­net and other tex­tures. Choose from three sleeve lengths and a wide range of col­ors, from ba­sic black, white or taupe, to bright red, egg­plant, turquoise, sil­ver and leop­ard print, to name a few. All styles are avail­able in reg­u­lar and plus sizes. Who says a pared­down wardrobe can’t be fun as well as ef­fi­cient?
