Why bare arms are the new bare legs

Bare legs have had a place in fashion since the arrival of mini-skirts in the 1960s. While their flashier counterparts were out enjoying the spotlight though, arms have been biding their time – classic, understated and eternally elegant.

    Covering up in the cold.

    Beautiful underarms.

    With the right antiperspirant, you can care for your underarms in the same way that you care for the rest of your body. Dove Advanced Care Beauty Finish Antiperspirant is enriched with NutriumMoisture, so you can go sleeveless without a second thought. Not only are you reducing sweating but you’re making your underarms more beautiful too

    Hair removal

    Hair removal gets a lot easier once you take bare legs out of the equation. Throw on your jeans and forget shaving your legs. Better still, you’ve now bought yourself 10 more minutes in bed

    There are endless ways to go sleeveless. Halternecks, strapless dresses, tanks, spaghetti straps and one-shouldered concoctions mean that there’s something to suit everyone – so you can wear the top or dress that works best for you, whatever the occasion

    Wardrobe options

    OK, we admit it: bare legs will probably never lose their fashionable status, but we’re determined to give our arms their fair share of celebration, too. After all, it opens up a whole host of new wardrobe options…
