Choosing the Right Style of Shirt

19 Apr 2019

Something as simple as a shirt can decide what kind of outfit you’re going to wear on any given day. While your choice in bottoms, shoes and accessories have a lot to do with what your outfit is saying, your choice between layering or wearing a standalone cap sleeve shirt is going to determine whether your outfit is classy, casual or sporty. So, when it comes to choosing a style of shirt that works best for your specific style and taste, make sure that you take a step back to really think about your options.

In this blog, we’re going to go over a few different styles and how you can wear each one — let’s get started!

Cap Sleeve Shirts

This style of shirt is perhaps the most common, and for good reason. Cap sleeve shirts can be worn on their own or as a layering shirt under sweaters and jackets. Cap sleeves are the most common type of shirt because they’re comfortable and look great!

Tank Tops

Tank tops are oftentimes used strictly as layering shirts but can also be used as exercise tops. Tank tops offer thicker straps than camisoles but still don’t feel heavy around the shoulders. If you are looking to exercise, or if you need a good layering shirt, a tank is the way to go!


Camis are your basic sleeveless top with very thin straps. While there are various different ways to wear a cami, the most common way it is worn is by using it as a layering shirt underneath low-cut tops. Camisoles are extremely thin and are also great to layer, especially on warmer days.

Long Sleeve Shirts

Long sleeve shirts are a popular layering shirt in the winter, being used underneath vests, coats, cardigans and more. However, long sleeves also look great when they are worn casually on their own. No matter the season, long sleeve shirts are an essential closet item that all women should own.

Three-Quarter Sleeves

A three-quarter sleeve is that happy medium between a long sleeve shirt and a half sleeve shirt. This shirt is best used for casual outfits, as well as comfortable ones. They work well with jeans, sweat pants and leggings.

Half Sleeve Shirts

Half sleeve shirts are a great option if you’re looking for more arm coverage than a cap sleeve shirt but don’t want to sacrifice comfort on hot days. This shirt can also be worn underneath a light jacket or blazer, but are also great when worn as a standalone shirt.

There are a variety of ways to wear each of these different essential shirts, but it ultimately comes down to preference. If you’re looking to find the perfect shirt for you, check out our selection on our online store, today!
