28 Jan 2019

Every woman can use a little bit of fashion inspiration once in a while. It can be difficult to keep up with trends or know how to pair certain colors and pieces of clothing. There’s always that one item in every woman’s closet that she loves but just doesn’t know how to wear it! If you are wondering how to wear certain outfits or clothing items, a women’s essential shirt could be the answer to all your questions.

Layering shirts are extremely versatile pieces of clothing that come in an assortment of styles and colors. Heirloom Clothing has a line of essential shirts in many colors that are perfect for any fashion style and outfit. Here’s Heirloom Clothing’s guide on how to wear their layering shirts and what colors to pair them with:


Neutral layering tops go well with just about anything, but look especially smooth with patterns and a pop of color. Try wearing a tan or light brown layering shirt tucked into a pair of patterned trousers and a chic red hat or necklace.

A simple black camisole looks fantastic with a simple cardigan of any color. If you are wanting to stick with neutrals, add a camel or tan cardigan over top. Combine this with a good pair of jeans and flats.

The black three-quarter sleeve layering shirt looks great with just about anything. A fun way to wear it is with a cute plaid scarf for some extra detail and color. You can dress this up with a classic pencil skirt or dress it down with a pair of jeans and boots.

If you are looking for a more cozy and comfortable look, then the white three-quarter sleeve shirt with a cream colored chunky cardigan could be your next go-to! Many people are wary of mixing white and cream but maybe try it again before you knock it out of all consideration. You will be surprised at how well this look works. Wear it with a pair of leggings and some simple sneakers.

Bold Colors

Rich colors can be a little more difficult to wear but a great way to make brighter colors work is by trying to wear something like a red layering shirt under a dark piece of clothing — such as black overalls or a blazer. With the dark and rich colors, you will create more of a bold but classic look that will look great year round.

Another combination could be orange with blue; a frequent combination is a burnt-orange top with blue jeans. Try wearing a cream or black tank with a burnt orange cardigan and some blue jeans. Put that with a pair of nude or brown leather flats and an easy necklace and you’ll have yourself a wonderful outfit!

No matter what colors you wear how you wear your layering shirt, your outfit is bound to be stylish and beautiful. Don’t be afraid to play with some new color combinations and get out of your style comfort zone, you may be surprised to see some new colors and styles that you end up falling in love with!
