The “I Don’t Like My Arms to Show” concern SOLVED — Opt

So some of us find ourselves unhappy with how our arms look so we don’t want to expose them or show them.  We search for tops that cover down to the elbow.  Next we stop wearing sleeveless tops and tank dresses and struggle through summer time feeling hot and less fashionable not to mention frustrated with ourselves!

There are tried and true fixes for the issue and here they are!

#1- The Revamp your Wardrobe option!

We find those tops that keep us cool during the hot months but still look fashionable.  We will have to fill our wardrobe with enough choices of cute tops and dress options to avoid feeling lost and to avoid that feeling of frustration when we get dressed for the day or for our occasion.

All of us know that bummed out feeling when we stand in front of our choices and feel unsure of what to put on and also the loss of ideas when our wardrobe does not support the task at hand.

Now for option #1 

  • Get rid of all tops and dresses that will no longer work for you from your closet!

Donate or sell every single one of them no matter the attachment you may feel.  It will only make you sad when you look at it in the closet and it quickly becomes the “non option”.  Get rid of them all at once.

  • Set a budget for summer dresses and tops and then carefully procure the pieces that will go with other items in your closet.  Have the funds ready and available so that you can do some retail therapy at the appropriate stores and boutiques.  Buy dresses and tops that cover the parts and pieces you prefer not to expose.

Here are some examples of tops that Get the Job Done!
