Women who travel often know that the best way to get the most 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 new creation called Sleevey Wonders, that's how.
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 attached (but without shoulder seams) to a stretchy unstructured bodice worn over a bra — or not — and sealed with a simple midpoint clasp.
Sleevey Wonders come in stretch jersey, sheerer mesh, lace, fishnet and other textures. Sleevey Wonders Slip-on Sleeves are $42 to $59, at www.sleeveywonders.com
