Long Sleeve Shirts in the Summer?

13, Jun, 19

With temperatures starting to finally stay above 70 degrees after a long spring, the summer weather is just about here and it is here to stay! At this time of the year, a lot of women shift over from their cold weather clothes to their summer clothes. One of the dilemmas that we face when we do this is, what do we do about our long sleeve shirts? Pack them away behind our summer tops? The answer is, NO!

Here is why you should keep several of your favorite long sleeve shirts in a place you can quickly find them.

Abnormal Weather

While we fondly remember every day of the summer to be filled with endless sunlight, there are days with some foul weather. All it takes is a few storm clouds to cover overhead and we find ourselves out in a chilly night. For these kinds of evenings, it is nice to have a thin long sleeve that won’t be too hot but won’t leave you shivering.

Cozy Nights Inside

Even though the weather outside may reach as high as the upper 80s and 90s, with air conditioning, we ultimately control the climate inside our homes. With husbands and kids that love the cool air, it can get a little cold for our liking. When you sit down to watch a movie with a blanket covering your legs and popcorn in your hands, a long sleeve shirt can be a very comfortable option.

Early Morning Walk

There may be some of you who loves early morning walks, but the temperatures as the sun passes above the top of our beautiful mountains are still a bit brisk. You might be leisurely walking or even speed walking for a bit of exercise, but a long sleeve shirt is perfect in these situations.

On a Lake

It doesn’t matter if you own a boat or not, there’s always a good chance that you will find yourself on one before the end of the summer. While we often associate boating with strong heat, sunscreen and refreshing lake water, we forget the cool air we feel when we either get back in the boat after a quick dip or when the boat produces a numbing windchill from its high speeds. For just about any situation on a boat, it’s not a bad idea to have an extra long sleeve shirt with you.

Basking in the sunlight during the summer is truly a rejuvenating feeling that we all love, but that doesn’t mean that the weather is always sweltering. Nor does it mean that we can’t wear long sleeve shirts. If you were to ask us, we’d suggest keeping a few out for the every now and then occasions.



Choosing the Right Sleeveless Top

As summer rolls around, it’s important to focus on creating a wardrobe that will keep you cool and comfortable throughout the hotter months. During the summer, sleeveless tops are staple tops for women that spends a lot of time outside. With the freedom a sleeveless shirt gives you, they are oftentimes the most efficient way to beat the summer heat.  Before you settle for just any sleeveless top, you have to consider which type is best for you.

You might be thinking, “As long as there is no sleeves, what is there to decide?” However, when it comes to sleeveless tops for women, there are two types to choose from, camisoles and tank tops! Here at Heirloom, we offer both of these types and can tell you what makes each of them a good option!

Camisole Shirts

Camisoles are a great option for those who are looking to layer in the summer. These shirts offer a slim feminine fit, making them a light and comfortable option for layering. Its long length helps to cover low cut pants and skirts, and the thin straps make it a comfortable tank to wear underneath another shirt, jacket or blazer. In addition to its layering capability, camisoles can be used as standalone tops for women. Whether you are exercising or going to bed, there are a lot of standalone uses.

Tank Tops

Even more than camisole shirts, tank tops are often worn more as standalone shirts. Whether you use your tank top as an active shirt or not, the thick straps offer more support and just as much of a smooth neckline as the camisole. Tanks are some of the best tops for women because their sleek look and comfortable fit. You can find tanks that work nicely for layering or some that are flattering enough to wear on their own. If you’re going to be using your tank tops as a standalone shirt, make sure that you order a size up.

Sleeveless tops for women come in all sorts of styles but these are the two main types. It’s also worth noting that the tank tops that we offer here at Heirloom give you unrivaled quality.
