I don´t like bats. Not only are they dirty, I also think that they´re ugly. But why is it that I love batwing sleeves?
Formally known as the Dolman sleeves, it has a very low armscye which extends down to the waistline. There´s basically no underarm seam in the top. So when you spread your arms, you´re like a bat spreading its wings. That´s how these sleeves got the name batwings.
Personally I really like the silhouette that batwings create. They make the wearer´s arms appear sexier and makes her look delicate. There is elegance and poise.
Today let´s take a look at the few batwing sleeves that are super gorgeous.
1. A Dolman Sleeves Romper
Here´s a monochrome romper featuring a pair of batwing sleeves. It has a loose silhouette – from its blouse top and sof, airy shorts – which is pulled together by a high waist bow belt. Because the bow is long, it gives a nod to this year´s bow trend.
2. A Batwing Bodycon Sweater Dress
I have streered clear of bodycon dresses for many years now since the bodycon has become a uniform for many women and I felt like, it´s just not elegant to wear anymore. But when I saw this dress, I feel the urge to give it a dress once again. Maybe instead of the mini bodycon dresses I should focus more on the midi bodycons, which is more age appropriate for me.
The batwings, the deep V-neck, the deep cutout in the back, and the sexy wrap style all make this dress elegant. I will wear it with a pair of silver strap heels in summer, or silver pointed-toe stilletos in winter.
It´s important to mention that this dress is also available in gray, white, red, black and green. All of white are very elegant in their own right.
3. A Batwing Wrap Mini Sweater Dress
Although I wear less mini dresses nowadays, my desire to go leggy still comes out on days when I see stunning mini dresses such as this. It´s all about the batwing and the V-neck for me. This is the mini version of the dress above.
4. A Batwing Romper
If you´re looking for a dressy outfit yet comfy enough, this jumpsuit is a good pick. Its batwing sleeves makes it dressy but its lighweight fabric and trousers make things comfortable and easy to wear.
5. A Batwing Off-the-Shoulder Sweater
Looking for a sweater that increases your sex appeal? you´ll never go wrong with a baggy solic sweater with batwing sleeves and a one-shoulder. Worn with a pair of skinny jeans and high heels, you´ll look stylish and sexy without trying so hard. This will make for a perfect first-date outfit.
6. A Batwing Open-Front Chunky Sweater
This style of knitted sweater is my favorite. I own several sweaters of this kind. I know I may sound like paroting myself but I really do feel stylish and dressed up the moment I thrown on one, even if I`m wearing something casual. Everything about this sweater is divine. It´s both cozy and pretty.
7. A batwing Oversized Top
This top is made for summer. Lighweight and sheer. I would certainly wear it with some denim shorts, but it will look great with skinny jeans or jeggings too. There are many different prints in the collection but I like the look of this butterfly print.
So these are some gorgeous (dolman) batwing sleeves that can easily elevate your style. So let me know, are you into batwing sleeves?
