ICYDK, arm warmers are back and better than ever! If you’re following a number of celebs who live in cooler climates, you’ll notice a knitted accessory that covers their shoulders but exposes their top from chest down. Call it the fall/winter girl’s version of a cropped top if you must, but the piece has definitely found its way to the tropics.
If you’re wondering what the purpose of this cozy top is, well, they’re more practical than you think! These were initially worn by dancers to warm up their bodies before performing, but have since become a staple winter trend, too. It’s definitely best for layering without making you feel too hot in case the weather becomes unforgiving. It’s also the perfect transitional knitwear for those in-between-seasons days.
Most Korean stars have been spotted wearing arm warmers as of late—the members of TWICE and Jisoo of BLACKPINK have definitely hopped on the trend. While in the US, models like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid have been snapped in this interesting piece. Now, it’s safe to say that a number of Filipina celebrities have started sporting it, too!
