What qualifies as a long sleeve shirt?

A women’s long sleeve shirt is—wait for it—a shirt with sleeves that are long enough to cover the full length of the arm. Compared to sleeveless, short sleeve or three-quarter sleeve shirts, a long sleeve shirt provides the most coverage. Long sleeved shirts come in many different styles, including t-shirtsblousesbutton fronttunicsturtlenecks, and wrap tops. They may be very plain and basic, as in a white cotton tee, or elegant and tailored, like a silk blouse.

Where did the long sleeve shirt originally come from?

We always like to give a little bit of history when talking about a garment. But an inquiry into the history of the long sleeve shirt is a bit banal. Suffice it to say that the long sleeve shirt is probably as old as humankind. Some of the world’s oldest preserved clothing, found in Egypt and dating back more than 5,000 years, show that fitted garments with long sleeves were all the rage in ancient civilizations.

Where to wear a long sleeve shirt . . .

Anywhere. Really. Unless it’s blazing hot, with 100 percent humidity. Even then, a lightweight long sleeve shirt offers protection from the elements. Not on an alligator tour on the bayou? There are many other venues for long sleeves. The office is a great place to start. Nothing says professional quite like a button front, collared, long sleeve blouse. A simple long sleeve t-shirt or lightweight tunic is perfect everyday wear, and layers well with a sweater or jacket.

How to make an outfit out of a long sleeve shirt . . .

Speaking of layering, that’s what’s perfect about long sleeve tops. They make a great base layer for adding other pieces or accessories to an outfit. A blouse or button-up top looks great under a blazer. A simple, casual top is a nice blank canvas for a sweater, and a tunic begs to be accessorized with a great necklace. Depending on the occasion, pair your long sleeve shirt with trousersa skirtshortsjeans or leggings. And don’t forget to add dimension to your outfit with statement shoes and a designer handbag.
