arm warmer picture for apparel industry to learn about arm warmersArm warmers (or arm socks) are knitted 'sleeves' worn on the arms. Usually worn by dancers to warm up their bodies before class, they have also become somewhat of a fashion item, appearing in the fall. These arm warmers are virtually identical in fabric and style as those worn by dancers.

Arm warmers can also describe any glove-like articles of clothing that lack finger coverings and/or were originally designed to keep wrists and lower arms warm. Today, many competition and sport bicyclists wear spandex-compression arm-warmers.

Various sub-cultures, such as the punk and goth subcultures, have also adopted arm warmers as a fashion statement.
