A lot of girls avoid sleeveless tops, or cover their OOTDs off with a cozy jacket to hide their arms because they don't feel confident showing them off. While great arms can be achieved by sweating it out in the gym, the right top can also help create the illusion of toner arms. Although we believe that every girl should love the body that they have, and should feel confident regardless of what clothing size she wears, there's nothing wrong with using a couple of styling tricks to create the illusion of toned arms. So to help you out, we're listing down the five tops you can rely on for slimmer and toner arms in a snap!

V-Neck Top

If you're not feeling a hundred percent confident about your arms, don't be afraid to go sleeveless because you totally can! A V-neck top draws attention away from your arms, and highlights your other cool features like your collarbone. So be bold and try different sleeveless V-neck tops in fearless prints and fun colors.


Sleeveless Button-Down

While the sleeveless button-down shirt shows off your arms, the collar detail of the top emphasizes the slimmer curve of your shoulders, and draws attention away from your arms. Plus, it looks chic and current, too!
