I’m kind of boring color wise, so I say go with black, but maybe something like one of these? They both come from the same Etsy shop–it looks like she has a lot of formal/evening shrugs.

Here’s a faux fur one, too, from the same shop. Also, Amazon has some cute boleros/wraps.

Most boleros and jackets are just too obvious that you are trying to cover up your arms, and many of them, in fact , make the problem worse. A satin bolero worn over a crepe dress just screams “Look at Me”.

I like this one, as it has a soft, rounded shape and you can choose to fasten it with your own choice of brooch, feather pin etc.

I must be a massive attention whore then because I have a closet full of boleros…
