How to wear long sleeve tops
Women's long sleeve tops have been a wardrobe staple since like forever! Versatile, smart, casual and everything in between - this trusty garment is perfect for when the weather is too cold for a T-shirt but too hot for a jumper and can slip under any jacket of your choice. Here are a few tips on how to style it:
- Smart yet relaxed:
If you're looking for some balance in your outfit, say if you're going to the office and dress code is smart casual, then a grey long sleeve top paired with indigo jeans and classic ankle boots is a suitable combination. It's such a sophisticated and stylish look and doesn't require so much time or attention to perfect.
- Feeling experimental?
The oversized style is everywhere right now. The problem is: not many people understand how to pull it off well. Well, we're here to prove otherwise! Pair a green long sleeve top with a hooded jacket, leggings and minimalist trainers. This outfit has a put-together feel (in part to the neutral colours) but gives the impression that you are in sync with the streets.
- An evening with friends:
If you are going somewhere nice but don't want your friends to comment on how overdressed you look, then this sharp outfit is right up your alley! Long sleeve evening tops go so well with a camel overcoat, dark formal trousers and kitten heels. Everything in this outfit shows class and modernity, and the earthy colour palette looks totally on point when combined with bright accessories and lip colour.
Top tip: You need white and black long sleeve tops in your life!
Yes, you heard it. You need at least 3 or 4 of these garments in your armoury. Why? Because they are versatile and can be the fundamental part of your week's outfits. Having monochrome basics such as these gives you a good base to work around, leaving the rest of your outfit to your imagination.
How to fold long sleeve tops
We all know ironing is a drag, especially when it comes to the daunting task of removing the almost irremovable wrinkles and creases on our favourite tops. Follow these steps and avoid having to take your ironing board out:
- If your top has buttons, be sure they are fully fastened to ensure a wrinkle-free fold.
- Fold the sleeves to the back-middle. Crossing the cuffs from the back means the sleeves keep their natural shape.
- Fold the sides to the middle. Fold in the sleeves once more but this time bringing in the side seams so they meet under the collar. This will form a V-shape.
- Continue to fold the top in half lengthwise, folding the hem of the top upwards towards the collar. You can do this once or twice depending on how much space you require. And, voilà! Your top is wrinkle-free and ready for storage!
