You've heard of long sleeve tops and short sleeve tops, but what about elbow sleeve tops? These distinctive women's tops have sleeves that stop at the elbow, giving them a unique look that helps set them apart from the pack. You'll find elbow sleeve tops from some of the biggest names in women's fashion like Liz Claiborne, Alyx, and Lark Lane from JCPenney. Most elbow sleeve tops are made from easy-care polyester, which won't shrink or stretch even after many trips through your washing machine.
You'll find two main types of elbow sleeve tops at JCPenney. The first is a type of blouse, typically flowing to flatter figures of all shapes and sizes. These elbow sleeve tops have a boho-chic vibe which makes them perfect for music festivals, days on the beach, and creative workplaces.The second style of elbow sleeve top is sometimes called a bolero or shrug. These elbow sleeve tops can be layered over other tops and dresses for a little extra warmth during cooler spring and fall weather. A layered elbow top worn over the top of a dress or embellished top can look very smart for an evening out at a high-end restaurant or the theater.
Blouse-style elbow sleeve tops are a versatile addition to any woman's wardrobe. Jeans are a fail-safe choice, working well with flowing blouse-style elbow sleeve tops of any color, plain or patterned. But don't be afraid to branch out a little. Their bohemian style works well with ankle length denim skirts or cloth maxi skirts. Adding a fitted denim jacket or blazer will help balance your more flowing apparel pieces.Since elbow sleeve tops have much shorter sleeves than most coats and jackets, they work best layered over the top of sleeveless dresses and singlets. Dresses with short sleeves and T-shirts don't work quite as well as their sleeves add extra bulk underneath the bolero.Shop for stylish elbow sleeve tops at JCPenney today.
