Womens' Sleeve Length - Appropriate length for long sleeves.
Posted 30 July 2016 - 03:33 AM
An online search for information yielded a photo assisted brochure on how to dress professionally for women. The brochure stated shoes should have closed toes with no more than a 1" -2" heel - stated very clearly next to a photograph of a 3" heeled pump! So when they state all long sleeve lengths should be 1/2" longer than the wristbone - hmmmmm - color me skeptical.
I would like to hear everyone's thoughts on womens' shirts/blouses sleeve length and jacket sleevelength.
Part of the problem in determining sleeve length is that many of us do not wear long sleeves under our jackets - so the men's rule of 1/4" to 1/2" above the cuff edge doesn't really work.
I have always used to the wrist bone for jackets and never more than 1/2" below that bone for long sleeved shirts - The fullness of the sleeve affects the length as far as I am concerned.

Generally, it can vary with style but following the same rule as men's wear is appropriate.
