The Apple Shape Wardrobe: A Hack for Wearing 3/4th and Long Sleeves in Warmer Months

wearing 3/4

Spring and summer months. I am a warm weather gal, but I am super self conscious of my upper arms. Some apple shapes have thin arms, but I am not like those apple shapes. My upper arms have always felt disproportionately too wide for my frame. Hence, I’m always more comfortable when I’m wearing long sleeves or 3/4th length sleeves.

How do I even get away with wearing these sleeve lengths in the spring and summer??? 100% linen. This top from J. Crew is 100% linen, super lightweight, kinda sheer, and just breathable and comfy without being at all clingy or tight. If I’m going with a lighter colored top, that’s a MUST.

Here are other 100% linen options to check out!

Other outfit items similar to what I’m wearing:

Newsboy cap. Aviators. Cargo skirt. Combat boots that are sooo comfy (exact pair).
