How To Do Sleeves In 25°C Weather

Confession time: even as temperatures begin to rise  – and the humidity starts to mess up my hair in ways I once thought unimaginable – these sweltering summer months can’t dispel my love for sleeves.

Summer weather + long sleeves = a hot, sweaty nightmare, right? Well, not necessarily! With the right cuts and fabrics, this pairing comes with a whole lot of benefits, from warding off sunburn, to giving that bit of extra coverage if you prefer not to bare your arms. Yes, it might be unwise to whip out your favourite long-sleeved turtlenecks in the middle of July, but, from blouson to balloon, we have plenty of summer-friendly (we promise!) sleeve styles.

Featuring lightweight, relaxed fits and loose-fitting sleeves, these pieces are perfect for summer soirées, garden parties, and date nights. Just add a *very cold* glass of rosé.
