Sleeveless Long Shirt – Makes You Look More Sophisticated
We all have that one friend – someone who always manages to look perfectly put together, shirt and trousers well pressed and matched, hair and beard appropriately trimmed and combed in place and shoes – always the right kind squeaky clean and polished.
Never fails to make our heads turn does he?
Well I’ve got good news!
You can do it too!
That’s right, you can look just as polished and sophisticated as that genius friend of yours and hey, you won’t have to spend a lot on anything so you don’t have to worry about that either.
Something that is often considered as the most basic of clothing can make you look super sophisticated. Something that has probably been in your closet for ages, but hasn’t really occurred to you as a stylish asset.
A sleeveless long shirt.
Now before you sigh and switch tabs, let me tell you a little secret.
It is always a simple item of clothing, or a simple element in an outfit or a simple understated accessory that puts the whole look together and stands out. Anything that is overstated needs more work in order to balance things out and finally it makes the entire look too dressy or chunky.
I’m not saying that that’s not good though. If the occasion calls for it, then that’s what you should go for.
But for a more everyday semi-casual or semi-formal kind of sophisticated look, the key is to keep things simple with small surprising twists.
So here are a few ways in which you can style your sleeveless long shirt and look more sophisticated:
- One of the best and classic ways to wear a sleeveless long shirt is tucked in of course. Even though a half tucked-in look became popular as a more casual and free look, it is always a put together look that stays on top in the game.
- Another advantage with sleeveless shirts is that it is extremely versatile. It can be worn with any kind of bottom wear. From full length plain trousers to chinos to printed shorts, everything goes perfectly well with sleeveless long shirts. Feel free to play with prints.
- Just like prints and textures, lengths or proportions can also be played around with. Since the shirt is long, you can go for a 2:1 ratio and pair it with shorts. If you’re all about balanced proportions, then you can go for a 2:2 ratio and pair it with ankle length chinos. Other than that, you can find your comfort zone in many more unusual ratios by going for over-sized shirts, or over-sized baggy trousers, pleated three-fourth length trousers and the like.
- Last but not least, it’s colors that can bring all the difference to your entire look. Sleeveless long shirts are available in a variety of colors. From pastels to classics, your options are aplenty. All you need to know is how to pair the right colors and you are good to go!
With all these benefits, it is pretty clear that a sleeveless long shirt is the ultimate sign of sophistication. So figure out your style, head out and get your own shirt if you haven’t already.
