Best Spring Tops with Sleeves for Aging Arms

Whether you are trying to camouflage jiggly arms, prevent sunburn or stay warm in the air conditioning, there are many reasons you may prefer to wear tops with sleeves. The only problem is, how do you find one that doesn’t look or feel too hot, heavy, and matronly?

Here are some of the best spring tops with sleeves for aging arms.

1. Trumpet Sleeve Blouse

If you are going to wear sleeves in summer, try donning a trumpet sleeve blouse. Why? Very feminine shirts like the one above are made of light and airy fabrics that won’t weigh you down.

 This cheery yellow trumpet sleeve blouse has loose, flowy tiered sleeves that cover but don’t restrict. And, of course, that delicate yellow color also adds to the light, spring look.

2. Tiered Sleeve Off the Shoulder Top

Off the shoulder tops with long sleeves have been very popular with the mature gals. Why? They cover your arms, but you still look subtlely sexy by exposing your shoulders and décolleté.

This cute floral off the shoulder top is a charming choice for spring. I love the tiered sleeves, which have a breezy vibe.

3. Bow Tie Sleeve Top

Like florals? This dark floral V-neck top is an attention grabber. Drapey ties attach to the cuffs to make this 3/4 length sleeve top flirty and fun.

4. Striped Peasant Top

Peasant tops are for boho babes. This striped tie-neck top with loose peasant sleeves will keep you looking cute and cool. Imagine wearing this when the sun is shinning and you are sipping a cocktail or having lunch at an outdoor café. It’s a beautiful way to cover your arms and make a modern fashion statement.

5. Ruffle Sleeve Top

Ruffle sleeve tops are a chic way to cover your arms and make a fashion statement.  This split neck top has three-quarter ruffle sleeves that provide arm coverage and a high low hem that provides coverage for your bottom. Ruffle sleeve tops look light and youthful even in spring.

6. Roll-Tab Shirt

A wrap-style blouse with roll-tab sleeves is a stylish way to cover your arms when it’s warm. For example, this cute printed roll-sleeve blouse has slouchy turn-up cuffs that make it casually chic and highlight the thinnest part of your arms – your forearms.

7. Puff Sleeve Top

Puff sleeve tops are trending. This animal print side-tie top has elbow length elasticized sleeves, which solve jiggly arms’ problem but let you stay cool.

8. Linen Tunic with 3/4 Length Sleeves

Whether you are spending time on a tropical island or a busy city, it’s going to be hot and humid. Linen’s hollow fibers and breathability make it a fabric that holds up exceptionally well in summer. This summer, a pink linen tunic with a split neck and wide cuff sleeves is light and airy but will keep you covered and cool on even the hottest days.

    1. Hi Jenny. I agree. I like sleeves because I’m always cold, but you’d be amazed at the number of women who email me about solutions for arm jiggle. These tops are pretty no matter how you feel about your arms.
