Short Sleeved Shirts
Who doesn’t have a favorite, comfy, short-sleeved shirt that they wear whenever they’re feeling like they need comfort? We all have one of those in our dresser drawers. Some are from high school and have the team logo plastered all over it, others are souvenirs from current, or previous lovers. A short-sleeved shirt is one of the most versatile pieces of fashion apparel that any woman can have in her closet.
It is possible for t-shirts to be dressy and classy. Take, for instance, the Aztec Short Sleeve Tee by XCVI. Who would have thought that a dip-dyed shirt would be suitable business attire? Pair this shirt with a nice pair of dark pants and a dark brown, or tan, jacket, and you’ve got an amazing outfit that’s suitable for the boardroom. Take off the jacket and switch the pants for some comfortable jeans and you’ve got the perfect outfit for hitting the club with your friends.
Make sure, when you’re looking for dress tops that you both look and feel good in them. No one likes sitting through long meetings feeling uncomfortable, no matter how good the top makes you look. The Marine Linen & Metal V-Neck is the kind of shirt you should look for when you’re looking for classy and comfortable. It has a beautiful sheen, and is made from a knit linen, which means it feels as good against your skin as it looks on it.
Nothing is more fun than pairing a colorful, trendy shirt with a pair of cargo pants. Some believe that they can’t get away with wearing shirts that have screen prints on them, but there are always funky prints that will look great for any Saturday. Take, for instance, the Bugs Bunny Tee shirt by Priorities. This shirt has the classic silhouette of Bugs Bunny (and who doesn’t love Bugs?) that is outlined in rhinestones and appliquéd with a fun pattern.
Other funky shirts might look like the Sheer Floral Embroidered Top. This is a classic “flower child” look, and can be matched with either pants or a skirt, depending on your mood.
Short-sleeved shirts fit the bill any season, be it winter, spring, summer or fall!
As the cooler air of fall and winter sweeps into town it’s time to think about wearing long-sleeved shirts once again. Some women hesitate to wear long-sleeves, believing that the shirt will hide their curves under bulky fabric. Fortunately the fashion gods have decreed that long-sleeved shirts that are fitted tightly to the body are the “in” thing to wear this fall.
How will fitted long-sleeved shirts change your wardrobe for the winter? The beauty of having your shirt fitted, especially in the arms, is that it accentuates the length of your body. Baggy shirts always make people look shorter, and a bit wider, but shirts that are a bit more fitted draws attention to the length of the body. The fabric pulls the body into perfect position, even for those of us that wish we’d worked a bit more on our biceps at the gym.
Two Basic Options
You have two basic options when it comes to choosing a long-sleeved shirt. The first is to pick a basic, single color shirt. A shirt that is a solid, neutral color, with possibly a bit of chiffon to trim the waist and the wrists, is the type of shirt that can be worn with either a skirt for a more sophisticated look, or jeans for a casual look.
For a more urban look, go for a graphic long-sleeved t-shirt, like the Urbanian Long Sleeve T-Shirt by Mocha. This shirt has a fun screen graphic on the front of the shirt, with some funky denim elbow patches to complete the look.
Completing Your Wardrobe
No wardrobe is complete without some long-sleeved shirts that are suitable for both dress and casual encounters. The only thing you have to decide is what you like! Remember, a screen printed long-sleeved shirt does not necessarily have to be for casual wear. Try pairing it with a long denim or khaki skirt and some sterling silver jewelry for a look that will work both in the office, and in the clubs!
