Dua Lipa’s newest music video, Blow Your Mind (Mwah), featuring Nicki Minaj, shows off the pop star’s fashion sense as she wears knit arm warmers as earrings, but there’s more to the fashion statement than meets the eye. Fashion-forward women, including Dua Lipa herself, are all about this current take on the accessory. Don’t believe us?
Who is She?
Dua Lipa (born 22 August 1995) is an English singer and songwriter. She has independently released two albums: Dua Lipa (2015) and Dua Lipa (2017). On 1 June 2017, she was signed with Warner Music Group, marking her major-label debut. The first single from her upcoming third album is called New Rules, which was released in July 2017.
Picking the Right Arm Warmer Style For you
Want to copy Dua Lipa’s look? First, you’ll need to choose whether or not you want knit arm warmers with sleeves. Wearing them over your sleeves will provide extra warmth and keep cold air from seeping into your sleeves. It’s also important to consider color and pattern—we recommend picking bright colors for colder climates and softer neutrals for warmer ones.
Matching Arm Warmers With Outfits
Thankfully, arm warmers seem to be making a comeback in 2018. And when it comes to arm warmers, Dua Lipa is giving us all an excellent case for integrating them into our wardrobes—and she does so without compromising her signature style. Her approach to wearing them may not be entirely new (we’ve seen Rihanna match hers with both sweaters and T-shirts), but it’s becoming easier to pull off.
