Our perfect long-sleeve t-shirts come into their own at this time of year – they create that perfect flattering layer under knits, blazers and dresses – breathable cotton with a hint of lycra to ensure our signature ‘ultimate fit’. Even on the coldest days, we are constantly in and out of central heating, packed stuffy trains and at risk of overheating! While a lot of t-shirt basics are too thin, clingy, shapeless or see-through to allow you to shed your outer layers, our t-shirts stand proud by themselves. Designed as stand-alone items, they ‘skim not cling’ in our 100% non-see through fabric to give you the confidence to wear them without having to cover up. Here are some style tips for layering this autumn:
The 90s button-through cardigan is back, the reason it was a hit then still applies – great for adding colour or texture to an outfit and an extra layer of warmth without the bulk of a coat – our simple classic round neck is the perfect backdrop. This grey mohair cardi from Acne Studios is so cosy and versatile.
Jumpsuits and dresses
Layering a tee under a jumpsuit or dress can be about warmth and also versatility. Dress down a smart piece by popping a long-sleeve tee underneath; it will immediately make an evening look more casual. Pair with trainers or brogues for a relaxed feel. Carry on the monochrome feel of this ikat print jumpsuit from Mint Velvet with our classic white long-sleeve t-shirt and add a pop of colour with your accessories.
Shirt dresses are a staple of our Autumn wardrobe – worn over coloured tights and ankle boots, they’re a great smart casual option. Layer up this midnight blue and black silk shirt dress from COS with our warm navy long-sleeve t-shirt and chestnut leather accessories for a classic, autumnal look.
Our long-sleeve tees are the perfect foil to this season’s print, embellished and block-colour statement jackets. Let your outerwear do the talking and team it with our classic boat-neck t-shirt. This embellished beauty from Anthropologie is on our lust-list right now.
