Cap sleeves are a great way to show off shapely arms, so if you’ve been working it out at the gym, now is the time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. However, if you are self-conscious about your arms, this may not be the look for you. Give it a try anyway to see if you like this ladylike trend.

Don’t know where to find a designer cap-sleeve dress? Check out this hot little number from Dolce and Gabbana:

If you have an event to go to and want to splurge on a fancy cap sleeve dress, look for unusual details, shiny material and a ladylike cut. Pair with sky-high heels and a clutch for a complete look. Happy shopping!

    Omg love how Lucy Liu rocks this look: the elbow-length gloves, the hot pink color, everything looks just right. Props to her stylist!
