I’ve recently discovered ‘Wingz’ a simple product that could solve many of your fashions woes and save you money.
As someone that writes about personal finance, you might have guessed that the latest fashions just aren’t really my thing. Don’t get me wrong, I will dress up for special occasions and the odd night out but day to day I’m definitely a Jeans and Baggy jumper kind of a girl (or joggers and hoody if I’m at home!) However, I was recently given the chance to try a out a fashion product called ‘Wingz’ which I really liked the sound of and which I thought could actually save a lot of money in the long run, after the initial investment.
I think we can all be guilty of having far to many clothes that we don’t actually wear and in all honesty I don’t think I know anyone that has managed to pull off the whole ‘Capsule’ wardrobe thing (although Wingz would work perfectly with that too if you have!)
Basically wingz are adaptable sleeves that can be added to any dress, shirt or top and they come in lots of different colours, lengths and designs. This means they can be worn with a variety of different items providing, warmth, cover-up or a whole new look, depending on how you decide to wear them.
Here are five reasons I love Wingz and why I think they make excellent investment for anyone’s wardrobe.
If you have a favorite summer dress or top that may seem too flimsy or strappy to wear winter adding a pair Wingz could be the perfect solution. In particular I love the lacey and velvet ones for this as they are perfect for the festive period and should stop the stress of fining a matching cardigan or shrug if you’re someone that likes to keep your arms covered.
2. Learn to Love Old Clothes Again
There are loads of different styles of wings available (Find them here) so matching them up with items you already have should be easy and it could bring a whole new lease of life to some of the old clothes clogging up your wardrobe.
3. Save Money and The Environment
Have you ever been sale shopping, found an *almost* perfect item and then thought ‘Oh but it doesn’t have sleeves/is too strappy/is too revealing’ – Wingz solves this problem as there should be pair to suit an style of dress. Wing should also help you get the most of the clothes you already do have – meaning you need to buy less as items you already have can now be used in a variety of ways.
4. Mix and Match
When I my Wingz first arrived I was a red vest top but wanted to try them on anyway – and was actually really surprised to find they went well. It just looked like I was wearing a red and black long sleeve top. There is no need to feel black Wingz can only be worn with black clothes – they are also great for mixing and matching.
5. Body Confidence
The upper arms are an area that ladies often feel self-conscious about, whether that be down to size, shape or tone. If you’re happy flaunting what you’ve gone then absolutely, go for it! But for some they feel happier with them covered up, myself included. I had a blood clot in my right arm aged 23 and the swelling from this has never fully gone away – it’s less noticeable now than it was, but immediately after there was around a two inch difference between my right and left upper arms meaning I wasn’t happy having them on show.
Using Wingz means that dresses that have sat at the back of your wardrobe for years may now be wearable and old favorites can become new favorites once again. Starting at £15.99 I think these are a great investment that could be used over and over again.
