Loose fitting : Sleeves so you can get dressed easily if there is a bandage or a coat or similar that if you can't place your sleeve over the bandage that can drape over your arm. Especially if you are in a cold region.

Comfortable clothes: Wear loose comfortable clothing. Usually you will have to change into a hospital gown prior to surgery. Try to wear loose clothing in case you need to pull on a shirt or jacket over an arm cast or splint. Good luck!
