How to Style a Long Sleeve T-shirt?

As the temperatures start to plummet, you'll want to swap out your summer clothes for some sensible long-sleeved T-shirts. The long-sleeved cotton tee is an effortless staple to add to your wardrobe, either as a solid foundation or as a standalone piece. This classic essential is a must-have for any man of value.


For styling advice on these long-sleeved tees, let's go over the key style tips that will help you pull off a long-sleeve tee, making this wardrobe staple a fashion-forward addition of all kinds. A springboard for layered design.


Style with Jeans

A time-honored, tried-and-true garment, classic blue jeans can be paired with many different top and shoe options. Long-sleeve tees are no exception! Bootcut jeans have a flat fit, creating a laid-back yet clean silhouette.


For a simple and dependable look you can always rely on, pair your favorite white long-sleeved shirt with light or dark blue jeans and sneakers for a casual effect. To give the look some bad-boy vibes, throw on a set of Chelsea boots and a matching belt. It's an easy look that you don't have to overthink and always looks good.


Style with Casual Chinos

Chinos are pants that every man should have at least one pair in his wardrobe, and just like jeans, chinos are also very versatile and can work great in any wardrobe, including paired with long-sleeved tees. When pairing Chinos with a long-sleeve T-shirt, it's the shoes that tie the whole look together. For example, pairing a long-sleeved white tee with khaki or dark blue shorts and some loafers (brown loafers or dark blue) can give a nice casual look.


The benefit of this shape is also that it is quite weather resistant. For the warmer spring-summer months, it shouldn't be too hot to handle all day. On cooler days, or if you're on the water, you may wish for a little warmth. That's when the extra coverage on the sleeves and pant legs will serve you well. For casual attire, opt for a long-sleeve T-shirt and khaki slacks—these pieces work well together. If the outfit looks too polished, dress it up with beige flip flops.


If the situation allows for urban casual style, you can wear a long-sleeved tee and black track shorts. Add white sneakers and the whole look will be very good.


For a break from the casual side, opt for a long-sleeve T-shirt and black shorts. Inject a more laid-back aesthetic into your look with a pair of black rubber sandals.


When comfort is everything, opt for a long-sleeve tee and dark brown shorts. A pair of white and green leather low-top sneakers is a great option to complete your outfit.


Who says you can't make a stylish statement with effortless casual wear? Throw on a long-sleeve tee and gray sweatpants to make everyone's heads turn. White sneakers work really well in this outfit.


We've covered more casual styles so far, but a long-sleeved cotton tee can also work fairly well as a more semi-formal option. We've also talked about layering before, which is also a way to add some formality with long-sleeve tees.


Add a nice coat over a long-sleeved T-shirt, then layer more trousers and shoes underneath for a beautiful formal outfit. It won't be as formal as a turtleneck or dress shirt, but it will serve as a comfortable middle ground between casual and formal.
