Long Sleeve Shirts 10 Ways

 We get it: long sleeve shirts are a cold-weather wardrobe essential and finding fresh ways to style one can be challenging. You want to be able to put together ensembles that both fight the cold weather and help you feel cute and put together.

 You’ll find that there are tons of different ways to style long sleeve shirts when you step outside the box. Here are some of our favorite ways to wear a long sleeve shirt that are sure to become part of your regular rotation during those cold weather months!

1. Simple with Jeans

Perhaps one of the easiest and straightforward ways that you can wear a long sleeve shirt is with jeans. It goes without saying, but we wanted to include it because there is so much diversity with this style.

 Throw on a cute long sleeve shirt with your favorite pair of skinny jeans. For a cute Fall look, choose a long sleeve tee with a thicker or textured material and pair with black straight-leg jeans and a cute scarf. High-rise straight leg jeans are trending right now, and look great with a long sleeve shirt.

It’s an easy outfit to throw together, and you’re going to be comfortable. It’s a win-win.

2. Layered Under a Dress

Do you have a few summer dresses that make you sad to put away during the fall and winter? Not so fast! There are plenty of ways to make them work on colder days.

One easy way is to layer one of your women’s long sleeve tops under a sleeveless dress or cap sleeve dress. Maintain that fun, dressy look without compromising warmth or comfort.

3. Tucked Into a Skirt

Another fun style you could consider is pairing your long sleeve shirts with a skirt. Whether you’re going with a fitted pencil skirt or a flowy midi-length skirt, this look finds the perfect balance between dressed up and casual. Take it to the next level by tucking your top into the skirt and throwing on a belt.

4. Oversized with Leggings

Is there anything better than getting cozy at home after a long day? A comfy pair of leggings with a cute, oversized long-sleeved shirt is the perfect ensemble for a laid-back evening at home. It even works as a casual outfit for running some errands.

 One major pro to this style is that you can wear just about anything with a pair of black leggings. Whatever color or design is on your long-sleeved shirt, it’s extremely likely that it will look cohesive and put together with a pair of leggings. Between that and the guaranteed comfort, it’s hard to go wrong.

5. Matching Set Stylings

One big trend we’ve been seeing recently is matching sets. Essentially, both the top and the bottom are the same color or design. You can either buy two items as a set or put one together with what you already have.

 You can easily do this with your long sleeve shirts. Go classic by pairing a black top with some black pants. You could go a little bolder by choosing a brighter color. They don’t necessarily have to be the same shade, either! You could do a bold red top with a deeper, more maroon women’s skirt.

6. Layered with a Button Up

Speaking of classic styles, there are few things more timeless than a simple button-up shirt layered underneath a long sleeve shirt. This pairing is good for virtually anything you might have on your agenda. Getting ready for a day in the office? Having some friends over for dinner? Taking off for a meeting? This is the perfect way to go.

One of the reasons we love this style so much is because it really opens a new world of opportunities with your wardrobe. If you have a few long sleeve shirts and a few button-ups, it’s easy to mix and match and find new combinations that you’ll love. The possibilities really start to open for you!

7. Dressed Up with Slacks

If you’re needing to step it up and really look your best, a long sleeve shirt easily goes with a pair of slacks. Enhance your dress pants outfit by including a pair of heels with a coordinating necklace and earring set and you’ll be ready to go.

8. Under an Open Plaid Shirt

For an easy and comfortable ensemble for more laid-back moments, wearing a long sleeve shirt under an open plaid button-up is a great way to go. This is easily paired with some leggings or your favorite pair of jeans.

This is an especially easy opportunity to find a new way to style your neutral long-sleeve shirts. The different colors and designs of a plaid shirt have all the variety you need for your outfit, making a black or white long-sleeve top a simple choice to make.

9. Styled with a Cardigan

Let’s be real: any outfit looks better when you throw on a cardigan! That added layer adds depth and texture as well as comfort. They come in a variety of designs and lengths, making it easy to find something that fits your style.

One trick you could try when layering with a women’s cardigan is to roll the sleeves of the long sleeve top up and over the sleeves of the cardigan. It’s an easy way to add balance to your ensemble.

10. Casual Lounging

And of course, the right long sleeve tee is perfect for some casual lounging around the house! Throw on your favorite women’s pajama pants or a comfy pair of sweats with a cozy long-sleeve shirt and you’re all set.

An Easy Wardrobe Essential

It’s easy to say that long sleeve shirts are a must-have for your fall and winter wardrobe. Stock up on a handful so that you can have some good variety to help you mix and match with the other pieces in your closet!
