Long sleeve shirts are a common sight in many people’s closets. This shirt’s adaptability makes it a fantastic addition to almost any ensemble, formal or informal. If you’re headed to a special occasion, attempt a more relaxed look with your long sleeve shirt. Use your long sleeve shirt to make yourself look as lovely as possible if you intend on dressing up! Here are different ways to style your Long-Sleeved Shirts:
Pair khakis with a button-up shirt for a business casual look
Try the line between casual and formal, pair khakis with a solid-coloured shirt. If you’re wearing a dress shirt, ensure sure it’s well buttoned. Wear a brighter shirt colour, such as light blue, to counteract the khakis’ bland tone.
Wear a collared, long-sleeve blue shirt with khakis and a quality pair of loafers or formal shoes, for example.
Wear a long-sleeved shirt with leggings to prioritize comfort
Leggings will keep your legs toasty while also allowing them to breathe. Keep your long sleeve shirt untucked to complete this laid-back look. If you want to make this outfit a bit more elegant, add some saddle shoes to the mix.
Pair a long, flowing, long-sleeved blouse with black leggings, for example. Put on some black and white sneakers and a dark beret to complete the look.
Instead of a polo shirt, consider a collared, button-up shirt to lend a touch of class to this ensemble
- Combine a cropped shirt with leather pants for an alternate look:
Try on some tight leather pants to get a rock-n-roll look. Choose the most form-fitting pants you can for a hotter look. Instead of boots or running shoes, consider a pair of sandals to add some flair to your ensemble. Pair a cropped, sold-coloured long sleeve shirt with black leather leggings, for example. Add a dangling necklace and a set of hoop earrings to complete the look.
2. For a punk look, pair a button-up shirt with some jeans:
For a more casual look, combine your long sleeve shirt with a pair of jeans. If the weather is colder, this sort of attire might help you strike a balance between fashion and warmth. Try a pair of torn jeans instead if you want to go for a more edgy style.
Pair a solid-coloured, long-sleeved top with light blue pants that are shredded at the knees for a playful, contrasting effect.
Add some elegance to a wrinkled attire by rolling up your sleeves
Roll up the ends of your long sleeves and curl them up around your elbow. Before rolling anything up, unbutton the cuffs or the lower half of the sleeve if you’re wearing a formal shirt. Keep the sleeves bunched around the elbow for a sleek yet casual appearance.
Pair cargo trousers with a multicoloured long sleeve blouse, for example. Roll the cloth up to add a professional touch to the cargo trousers.
To give off a sleek impression, pair a button-up shirt with a jacket
With a blazer or sports coat, you’ll be set for any formal or business occasion. If you’re concerned that your long sleeve shirt will be too plain or informal on its own, throw on a jacket! A blazer, depending on the colour scheme of your clothing, might elevate it to a new and sleeker level.
Pair a white long sleeve shirt with a black jacket and a pair of dress pants to create a monochrome outfit. Add a dark purse and some expensive, high-heeled black shoes to finish the look.
Instead, throw wearing a patterned blazer to give some individuality to your ensemble.
With a dress shirt and decent jeans, go for a refined style
Pair some zip-up dress slacks with a solid-coloured long sleeve shirt for a simple appearance. Tuck the shirt inside your jeans to make the ensemble appear even finer. Add a monochrome handbag and a pair of stylish shoes, such as loafers or high heels to keep the look basic.
Tuck a shirt into a dark pair of dress pants, for example. Finish the look with a black purse and dual-toned grey and black shoes.
To complete a beautiful look, add a necktie to your dress shirt
Add the right accessories to any dress to make it look elegant. If you’re wearing a dress shirt, depending on the rest of your ensemble, add a patterned or solid-coloured tie. Choose a necktie instead of a vest or jacket if you’re wearing a long sleeve shirt.
If you want to make your ensemble a bit more formal, add a long sleeve shirt with a beautiful collar. Look for shirts with cascade, Pierrot, Jabot, or circular ruffle collars, for example.
Wear a scarf to add a touch of class to your look
By layering a scarf on top of your dress, you may add an extra touch of flair. If your long sleeve shirt has a more exposed neckline, consider tying a scarf over it to hide it. Simply dangle both ends of the scarf down the front of your chest if you don’t want to deal with looping it.
For example, for a sleek, form-fitting style, mix a tightly wrapped scarf with a snug leather jacket. A circular scarf is a good choice if you want something looser.
Contrast isn’t anything to be terrified of! Pair dark scarves with lighter shirts, and vice versa, to take your ensembles to the next level of fashion.
To add some flare to your look, tuck a long-sleeved top into a long skirt
Attend formal gatherings and parties without having to bother about putting on a gown. Rather, divide your ensemble into two parts: a gorgeous long-sleeve shirt and a long skirt. Aim for a skirt that falls just beyond your knees and doesn’t touch your ankles. Instead, flaunt a portion of your lower leg!
