@anartist Really? I thought those were really short t-shirt sleeves.

@Coloma I have no formal outfits – tonight I just used some black pants with a tank top and a shrug, but I do sort of need something that I can wear when the occasion calls for it. I may ask my mother for it for Christmas…

A short sleeve popular on women’s blouses and dresses that extends over only the edge of the shoulder to reflect the ultimate in feminine style.

I wouldn’t call those sleeves at all, they just look like wide straps to me!

I agree with @rooeytoo. Those just seem like wide set straps in a triangle sort of shape.

I think those are straps, not sleeves.

I’m sure there is a name but I’d call them wide tapered straps.
