Easy DIY Last Minute Halloween Costume

15, Oct, 19

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your costume! Not sure what to be or how to even begin creating a costume? Don’t worry, Heirloom’s got you covered! Your long sleeve shirts are more versatile than you thought. You can create fun and wicked costume with items you already have hanging in your closet! 

Black Cat

The black cat is always a solid Halloween costume choice. The best part is you can make this costume without having to buy an expensive outfit! Our basic scoop neck long sleeve shirt in black with a pair of black jeans and cat ears is a purrfect costume for any party. Take the look a step further using eyeliner to create a bold cat eye, whiskers, and a cute kitty nose.

Wednesday Adams

Our favorite Adams family member makes a great last-minute costume for anyone who’s feeling mysterious and spooky. You can wear a black long sleeve dress or a black long sleeve shirt with a black skirt. Add a collared white shirt underneath, black tights, boots, and pigtail braids to complete the look. 

Minnie Mouse

If you’ve been to Disney, you probably have some Minnie Mouse ears lying around your house. Don’t just wear them to the parks, they are perfect for Halloween! All you need is a black long sleeve shirt, a red tulle skirt, black tights, and your trusty mouse ears. If you don’t have a polka dot skirt like Minnie, you can make one by cutting out small white circles and attaching them to the tulle skirt. Complete the look with a bold red lip and draw a small black circle at the tip of your nose. 


You don’t need to know any spells for this costume! To create a witchy costume, start with a black shirt and a tulle skirt or a black dress, cute black boots, and your pointiest witches hat. Add a smokey eye, dark lipstick, and some spooky accessories to top it off.

At Heirloom, we’ve got all the essentials you'll need for this spooky season! Stock up today on our long sleeve and ¾ sleeve shirts for this chilly October. We have a wide color selection for every festive Halloween occasion to keep you spooky all season long!


Why a Black T-Shirt is the Most Essential Piece in Your Wardrobe

15, Oct, 19

At Heirloom, we believe everyone needs a go-to black t-shirt hanging in their closet. It’s one of the first pieces you should buy when creating a wardrobe since it can be worn with almost anything. A black layering tee can help you create more outfits with the clothes you already have.

Black is always in style, no matter the season! Trying to create a classy, edgy, or modern look? A black shirt is the perfect starting point in any outfit. You never have to worry about matching because it goes with just about anything! Own a bright pair of fuchsia heels or some yellow accessories that don’t look good with any other outfits? Black is perfect for those tricky colors in your wardrobe! A black layering tee is super easy to layer with jackets or sweaters and goes excellent with cute patterned bottoms, a colorful cardigan, or just all black if your feeling edgy. Another way to create interest in an all-black outfit is to wear different fabrics. For instance, you could wear a black velvet top with a black motorcycle jacket to break up the blacks and create depth. 

Dress Up or Down Anywhere

The modern woman is busy. She doesn’t always have time to run home and change before dinner with the girls. That’s why the perfect black shirt is a must for anyone who needs to attend an event after work! Black clothing already looks professional, expensive, and appropriate for any occasion. Try wearing a black layering tee with a pencil skirt, work style heels, and a blazer during the day for the office. After work, you can change your shoes and jacket to something more casual and add some fun accessories for a night out on the town!

Flattering for Everyone

Most people would agree that black is the most universally flattering color out there. It’s essential in everyone's closet since its figure-flattering and slimming on all body types. A black layering tee is flattering on all skin tones and goes with any hair color. If you're ever having a tough time deciding what to wear in the morning, black is always the right choice. And it never goes out of style!

Fall is here and we are excited to start wearing our favorite fall outfits for every fun-filled occasion. In this blog post, we are going to be looking at some of our favorite fall styles of 2019 for leisure activities and the office.

Casual Fall Styles

If you're looking for something perfect for the pumpkin patch and haunted houses then look no further! Fall casual outfits need to be easy to put together, stylish, comfortable and unrestricted. You may also try a button-front jumper paired with our black long sleeve shirt and your favorite booties for a perfect casual look this season. Plus, it has pockets! The last casual look we’ll suggest is a boyfriend cardigan paired with one of our essential tank tops and denim prime time pants. It's an easygoing outfit and the cardigan lets you wear your summer tank tops in colder months, extending the outfit possibilities.

Workplace Styles

Need fall outfit ideas for the office? A good place to start is with a V-neck sweater layered with a button-up long sleeve shirt underneath. On the bottom, you could try formal pants or even a pencil skirt. This look is office smart but fits better with the cooler weather. If your office temperature is unpredictable, try wearing a basic cap sleeve shirt with Ponte pants and a blazer for an outfit with clean lines. The blazer on top gives you to option to remove a layer throughout the day if needed. If you want to make a statement another statement at the office, try wearing red pants with a white cap sleeve shirt and a black one-button blazer. Accessorize this with a thin necklace and some stackable bracelets.

Above all, your fall fashion should include long sleeve shirts, jeans, boots/booties, sweaters, cardigans and scarves.
