Hello everyone,
I've bought this dress and it's beautifullll...
I am wearing it for a wedding in a couple of weeks.
I don't like my arms so I am looking for something to wear on top of it. Can you please recommend something?

Wear a shrug, also called a bolero. You can buy quite fancy ones online, like Amazon or Etsy. You can also wear a posh pashmina or shawl over the dress.

Personally I think shrugs/pashminas look scruffy. If you don't like your arms then buy a longer sleeved dress.

However working with this dress Your smartest option for a wedding would be a spring blazer - maybe in the pinky/coral colour.

Depends on colour irl

Hush Chanel-esque

Cute but £££

I am not keen on shrugs or pashminas, and would go for a slightly cropped crew-neck cardi. (Blazers aren't me, but I also think that would be nicer than shrug/pashmina.)

I am not too keen on pashminas.

I like the Ted Baker option but not with this dress. Way too much pink. I tried it. Dress also from Ted baker.

There's a lovely Blush blazer in River Island.

Agree re boleros, I think they are quite old fashioned.

I think any sort of shrug/cardigan just draws attention to the fact you are trying to hide your arms. Either go bare armed or maybe a blazer at a push.

I think I should just show my arms smile
Searched all night and can't find much I like boleros are horrendous.

This could possibly work if the colour is the same as some of the details.

Boden have crop crew neck cardigans...currently on sale!!

Definitely go bare arms then.

Or buy another dress. Don't think any point ruining it with a cover up.
