Quality

To stretch, bend, and lean with your day, you need quality long sleeve shirts that will last and won’t fall apart. Since our products are made in the US, we can ensure that each piece of clothing is up to our standards and allows us strict quality control. We inspect each product and guarantee that they are created using the best materials. We buy cotton grown in the US, where the USDA tests each bale of cotton produced. This testing looks at the physical properties like micronaire, strength, and uniformity of the cotton bale to ensure it’s meeting the quality standard. 

Because we are based in the US, we can provide better quality customer service. Our customer service representatives can interact with our customers in real-time and allowing us to answer questions or solve problems quickly.

Cost 

Having our products manufactured in the US allows us to provide our customers with the best prices. We have shorter shipping times and lower shipping costs because everything is located in the US. We also don’t have to worry about factoring in the cost of custom fees, which lowers the cost of shipping, saving you money. 

Responsibility 

Being socially responsible is another value we strive for at Heirloom. Our US-grown cotton goes through a simple supply chain. This means we are using fewer resources and can ensure a more responsible carbon footprint. 

You can expect the best quality products every time from us because we make everything in the US.

Cardigan and Tank Top Combos We Love


12 Nov 2019

At Heirloom Clothing, layering tees are our specialty! We have tons of different shirt cuts in several color options so you can get exactly what you want. In this blog, we have put together some of our favorite cardigan and tank top combos for fall.

Tank Top

One of our favorite layering tees is our basic tank top shirt. With its slim feminine fit, smooth neckline and soft stretch fabric, this top is perfect for layering with cardigans for the chilly weather. A great fall pairing is our Tango Red tank top with our Favorite Cardigan in black. This dark, flowing cardigan allows the brightly colored tank top to pop against the black, creating an eye-catching outfit. Wear dark wash jeans and add a statement piece such as a bold necklace to finish up this look. 

Camisole

Need a layering combo that you can wear on a casual night out with friends? Our basic camisole is the best place to start! It has thinner straps than our tank top and comes in 11 different colors to match any outfit you can imagine. Our navy camisole paired with our Boyfriend Cardigan in cream is a cool color combo that will surely impress. Complete the look with straight denim pants and booties and accessorize with a comfy scarf. 

Cap Sleeve

With or without a cardigan, cap sleeve tops are perfect for layering at the office since you can add or take away layers and still be office appropriate! We love the basic cap sleeve layering tee in Dolphin Gray paired with our Signature Cardigan in Passion Green. This combo adds some color to your outfit and lets the cardigan stand out. Add a black pencil skirt, tights and heels to finish this office-ready look.

Choosing Outfits that work in the Warm and the Cold


06 Nov 2019

Fall weather can be very unpredictable. Some days are a super chilly 40 degrees while others are a warm and sunny 80 degrees. How can anyone dress for that?! Never fear, Heirloom Clothing has everything you need from ¾ sleeve shirts to cozy cardigans to tackle any weather you may face this season.

3/4 sleeve shirts

Jackets 

If the weather is looking a little unpredictable, a jacket is going to be your best friend! Layers in the fall are always a smart outfit choice because you can add and remove them to help control your temperature. Just make sure whatever your wearing underneath can be worn without a jacket. Cardigans, blazers and down coats are other layering options that are perfect for unpredictable temperatures. Wearing a ¾ sleeve shirt with a jean jacket and accessorizing with a cute scarf is just one outfit idea that is perfect for fall weather 

¾ Sleeve Shirts

Choosing the right shirt in the morning can be a challenge when the temperature is going to warm up throughout the day. You need something that will keep you cozy in the early morning but can cool you down in the afternoon heat. A ¾ sleeve shirt is one of the best options for unpredictable fall temperatures and will be appropriate for cold mornings and warm afternoons. They look great under jackets or cardigans and won’t look bulky. Try wearing a ¾ sleeve shirt with a long knit cardigan and your favorite jeans. This look will be ready to tackle any weird weather autumn throws your way!

Tighten Up

Want to wear that gorgeous dress hanging in your closet? Worried about if it’s going to be too cold for the early morning? Then tights are your new best friend! Wearing tights underneath your dresses will keep you warm in the morning but won’t overheat you as the day goes on. Tights will extend the wear of your summer dresses and skirts and allows you to enjoy them all fall and winter long. Make sure to find tights that are made of thicker material so they will last longer and keep you toasty!

At Heirloom, we have everything you need this season to stay cozy in any weather! Check out our website to see fun fall colors in our layering essentials. Stock up now and be ready for whatever mother nature throws at you.

It’s a time for oversized sweaters with camisole shirts, boots, denim jackets, and all things comfortable. In today’s blog, we are going to be looking at some of the essentials we recommend keeping in your fall wardrobe and what outfits you can create with them to look your best all season long! 

Sweater Weather

Everyone loves to feel cozy, especially when it's getting into the 40-degree weather! Sweaters are one of the best options for fall and can be easily styled with just a few accessories. Our Avery Sweater paired with thick leggings, tall boots, and a long necklace makes a great casual autumn outfit for fun seasonal activities. You can also layer certain sweaters with an undershirt to create a pop of color. If you have a knit sweater with larger stitching, try wearing one of our camisole shirts underneath it to fill in the gaps and create interest. Since it comes in 11 different colors, you can mix and match to get the exact look you want!

Dark Wash Jeans

In the fall, color palettes tend to be darker warm tones. Dark wash jeans are a staple of the season and go with just about any top! You’ll want to purchase good quality jeans that have durable stitching and comfortable stretch. Our Hollywood Jeans stretch to fit your body and have 5 pockets! You’ll want to buy a few pairs and alternate the days you wear them to increase the life of your jeans. Add a camisole shirt, cargo jacket, and booties to dark wash jeans to create an effortless fall outfit! Try accessorizing with layered leather bracelets to add texture to your outfit. 

Cardigans

If you work in an office, a cardigan is a must in your fall wardrobe since you can layer it with all your regular and camisole shirts and easily make your outfit cold-weather appropriate. They are easy to store in your bag when you're not using them and keep you comfortable without being too heavy. Our boyfriend cardigan is perfect for those chilly days at the office and has pockets to keep your hands toasty! A cardigan paired with black Ponte pants, heels, and a collared button-up shirt is a stylish work outfit that will make you feel like a boss lady!

We hope this post inspires your fall wardrobe and gives you some ideas about where to start. Having the right pieces to pull a look together creates a more cohesive look and will boost your confidence. Check out Heirloom today for camisole shirts, cardigans, and much more!

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


15 Oct 2019

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.   

layering tees

Versatile

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!

Our Favorite Color Combinations for Fall


15 Oct 2019

It’s finally fall! Time for autumn activities like hayrides, apple picking and bonfires with friends and family. No matter what activity it is, Heirloom has everything you need to update your fall wardrobe from ¾ sleeve shirts to comfy sweaters! With so many color options to choose from, you can get the exact look you want! We have some exciting color combinations that will transition your current wardrobe for the new chilly season.

Tango Red and Black

Black is always in style but in the fall, adding a bright pop of red can make any outfit stand out. Tango red reminds us of colorful leaves and delicious red apples, and always pairs well with black. You can also use these colors in your outfit to draw attention to specific pieces of clothing. Try wearing a Tango red ¾ sleeve shirt with a black jacket and jeans. Even though it’s not the outermost piece of clothing, the red will pop against the black creating a more interesting color combination. Another fun way to wear Tango red and black involves accessorizing. Throw on a black ¾ sleeve shirt and black pants to start. Now add red heels and a red scarf to create a clean and exciting look. Wearing all black creates a canvas to showcase the red accents in your outfit, making it stand out. 

Navy and Grey

Not every fall outfit needs warm colors. Navy and grey is a great option for anyone who wants a more subtle outfit that still contains colors. We love our navy ¾ sleeve shirt paired with a grey knit cardigan, jeans and booties. It’s an easy fall outfit that you can depend on for any casual outing! For something more suitable for the office, try a navy blazer with a grey top underneath. The navy will make the grey stand out and is a great alternative to the common black and white office suit. 

Cream and Moss

Our cream ¾ sleeve shirt paired with moss green pants are a great outfit choice for fall! The darker shades of green moss with the warmer white hues in cream compliment each other and add an earthy tone to your outfit. If you want to stand out, try a cream blazer with a black camisole shirt and moss tie waist pants. This color combo is perfect for casual outfits or work outfits and will fit right in with the season.

If you need to stock up on essentials for fall, check out our ¾ sleeve shirt. With 15 different color options, you can get exactly what you want and create a versatile wardrobe. Check out our website and grab your favorite fall colors today!

The Most Flattering Colors to Wear


15 Oct 2019

Whether you recognize the reason or not, there are moments when you will see a specific shirt and determine on the spot if it will work for you. A lot of the time, that determining factor comes down to how well the color complements our complexion. When it comes down to it, what color looks best on us is highly affected by our skin tone! This is a profound reason why some outfits look great and others do not.

There are complementary properties within colors that work together naturally when blended, and the results of two well-matched colors equal one cohesive look. If a certain color of a 3/4 sleeve shirt goes nicely with a specific color of bottoms, then why would it be any different with colors of apparel and the tone of our skin? It’s not! That’s why the most flattering to wear depends on the tone of your skin.

3/4 sleeve shirt

Here is a brief list of the colors that go with your skin tone.

Colors for Each Skin Tone

Fair (or porcelain/pale) — Pastel Blue, Baby Pink, Heather Gray, Peach, Coral

Light (or ivory/beige) — Soft Rose, Dusty Pinks, Seafoam Green

Medium (or olive/gold) — Creamy Peach, Berry, Aspen Gold, Light Purple, Dark Jade Green

Tan (bronze/caramel) — Neutrals, Bleached Sand, Olive Green, Navy, Tango Red

Rich (or deep/espresso) — Royal Blue, Amethyst, Emerald Green, Turquoise, Crimson, White

*Note: The title of these skin tones are speculative and may not represent all tones; this is simply our summary.

The Power of Black Apparel

It is also worth mentioning briefly that black pants, shorts, tees, jackets and just about any other piece of garment looks nice on anybody! There is something magical about black that seems to help all body types appear slim and chic. Some people love black so much that they will don a full black-on-black outfit and nothing else. However, we are sure there are other combinations that feature a combination of black and another color that will look flattering on you. Perhaps a peach 3/4 sleeve shirt and black bottoms! Whatever it is, in addition to some of the most flattering colors mentioned above, give black a try!

Heirloom Clothing Color Options

At Heirloom Clothing, we sell camis, tanks, long sleeves, 3/4 sleeve shirts and other layering tees. Each of these essential shirts include a variety of color options that will complement all skin tones. To see some of the most flattering colors for your skin tone, check out our Tango Red, Turquoise, Yellow Aspen Gold and other options right now!

Long Sleeve Shirts and Fall Colors


02 Oct 2019

You may have noticed the weather’s bipolar behavior over the past couple of weeks, and while the temperature isn’t anything we can be certain of day-to-day, there is one thing we can be sure of and that is that the weather is only going to get colder from here on out! We may still have days with sweltering highs in the 80s, but our lows are dropping into the mid-40s. The thing is, we are at the very beginning of autumn! This means it is officially time to switch from summer capris and tees to fall jeans and long sleeves!

It doesn’t take a fashion insider to know that it’s time to start dressing warmer, but we do want to emphasize how nice singular long sleeve shirts are at this time of the year. In addition, you may want to think about finding fall colors for your fall outfits!

The Convenience of Long Sleeve Shirts Right Now

When it all comes down to it, clothing’s purpose is to help us feel comfortable when we go outside! Yes, we want to look our best, and some styles and designs make us feel confident when we meet up with others, but you wouldn’t wear a cute summer outfit in the dead of winter just because it looks good. Throughout the fall, a long sleeve shirt gives you the comfort you need with the weather gradually dropping degrees. Not to mention, standalone long sleeves fit in with fall fashion!

Any time we turn the corner on summer, there are a lot of different outfits we can consider. Boots, leggings, jeans, flannels, vests, jackets, and of course, long sleeve shirts! There may be a few warm autumn days, but on those days you can pull your sleeves up a bit and remove any additional layers to stay comfortable if you start feeling a little warm. What really marks a fall outfit is the color, and there are a variety of combinations you can try!

Fall Colors and Combinations

At Heirloom, we have a variety of color options for you to choose from with all of our essential shirts, but when it comes to our long sleeve shirts, the top two we’d suggest are our Tango Red and Dutch Brown! Both of these options are bold enough to wear on their own with accompanying jeans or pants and additional accessories! Beyond these two colors, you can also create beautiful fall combinations with our black and white long sleeve options.

Going back to some of the other fall looks mentioned above, there are a lot of ways to look great during this season. Whether you wrap it around your waist or throw it over a black or white long sleeve, adding a red or yellow flannel to your outfit will look lovely! One of the easiest yet stunning fall looks is a combination of classic jeans and a white long sleeve shirt layered under an orange or red jacket, vest or cardigan.

These are just a few ideas you can consider, but there is a lot more! Whatever you decide to try, do it now! Don’t wait for the cold to set in before you find your fall colors and combinations. For the most comfortable long sleeve shirts, check out our selection today!

Why Should You Use a Layering Shirt?


02 Oct 2019

Layering tees open up endless opportunities when it comes to putting together a chic outfit. Aside from this, they also allow you to stay cool during the summer and warm during the winter. There are various reasons to invest in a layering shirt, and in this blog, we’re going to talk about the most important ones. 

Whether you’re trying to upgrade your wardrobe or you’re simply wanting to add some more timeless pieces to your closet, here is why you should use a layering shirt.

Style Options

The first thing we mentioned is that layering tees can help you achieve various different outfits. If you’re looking to switch up your appearance and experiment with different styles, layering tees are the perfect addition to almost any outfit. When you wear them under other shirts, you can wear a variety of other outfits you would otherwise feel uncomfortable within certain situations. For example, a camisole shirt under a sheer shirt gives you the ability to wear that sheer shirt almost anywhere!

Temperature Control

Another reason you should consider layering tees is because they give you the ability to layer and stay warm in the winter. Additionally, they work equally well as a standalone shirt in the summer! You can layer a cami under a long sleeve shirt, and then bundle up with a jacket. Some accessories that will keep you warm include scarves, gloves and a beanie. 

Stay Covered 

There are a lot of positives with layering, but the layering tees here at Heirloom are unlike any other. Our layering shirts are designed to stretch, bend and lean with you without binding you in. If you’re looking to keep yourself covered as you go about your daily routine — or even while you’re working out — layering tees are the way to go! Once you start layering more, you are going to find just how useful they are.

Layering tees have various uses, and we hope you’ve drawn some inspiration form this post! There are so many reasons for you to start investing in a few layering shirts of your own, so don’t wait! If you’re in the market for high-quality clothing, check out our selection at Heirloom Clothing.

Why You Should Stock Up on Long Sleeve Shirts for Fall and Winter Now


06 Sep 2019

As is the case every year, once summer is over, things only get colder. However, fall and winter do not have to be miserable! In fact, there is so much beauty and fun to be had during these seasons! People’s attitudes are deeply connected with their emotions, and when we are uncomfortable, we may not be as happy. With the shift in seasons, if we aren’t prepared, we may find ourselves uncomfortable and unhappy all due to the changing temperature outside.

One of the best ways to stay happy and confident is by making sure you have clothes that will help you feel comfortable! Filling your wardrobe with long sleeve shirts, sweaters, scarfs and other cold-weather apparel can make all the difference for you during the fall and winter. While some women love trying different summer-wardrobe combinations, there can be equal excitement for fall and winter outfits!

Creating Mental Images

Perhaps you can see yourself in some cute jeans, warm boots, cozy gloves, and a throwback sweater with a long sleeve underneath and a scarf wrapped around your neck; or maybe, you see yourself cuddled up in a blanket next to an indoor fire in a boyfriend-sized hoodie! Whatever the look is, visualizing yourself in warm outfits will help you mentally prepare for the cold! Now, creating mental images is not the only way to start preparing for the upcoming fall and winter weather, you can go out and start making purchases early!

Stocking Up Now

The earlier you start shopping for long sleeve shirts and other colder weather clothing, the better. Stocking up now isn’t a good idea just because the prices might rise as the temperature drops, but for two other reasons! The first reason being, by adding long sleeve shirts into your wardrobe now, you’ll be prepared for some of those random, earlier-than-usual cold days. Additionally, you will start getting a better idea of what kind of outfit combinations might be good for you as the seasons change.

DON’T WAIT

The cold is on its way, but you can be prepared! You may not need to start pulling out your coat or start shopping for new jackets, but don’t wait to start looking for long sleeve shirts. Some mornings and evenings even call for a long sleeve shirt right now! The earlier you prepare for the cold, the more comfortable you will be throughout fall and winter!

Camisole Shirts: a Brief History and Common Terms Today


02 Oct 2019

There are a lot of different terms in the fashion world, and camisole shirts are one that have just a few, but why? The use of the word camisole didn’t blow up in English languages until recent years. Before the 1960s, there aren’t a lot of mentions of the word camisole seen anywhere, but is that because they didn’t exist or because they called them something else?

We are going to answer this and tell you all the different terms for camisole shirts in this blog!

Common Terms Today

While one form of a camisole shirt has existed for nearly two centuries, there isn’t a lot of variations in the terminology. The other names camisole shirts go by are, camis, spaghetti straps, or a woman’s undershirt. Another title women might use for a camisole is a tank top, but this is incorrect. The straps on a tank top are much wider than a camisole and really shouldn’t be confused with a camisole shirt; the other terms are more than appropriate!

It isn’t much of a mystery why terms like spaghetti strap, cami, and undershirt have developed over the years. The shoulder strap design on camisole shirts is extremely skinny, and the thinness of the strap resembles that of a single spaghetti strand. As far as the undershirt goes, there aren’t many options as light and comfortable as a camisole. The reason why camisoles are called camis is obvious and doesn’t need much more explanation than it’s an abbreviated version.

Outside of these few terms, there are no other popular names for the camisole. However, there are other names of apparel from which the camisole received its title.

History and Ancient Terminology

The term camisole derives from France where they likely took the word from camiciola (Italian) or camisola (Spanish). Both roots originate from the Latin-base, camisia, which translates to shirt or nightgown. While camis are commonly worn at night and are a basic essential shirt, this term relates closer to chemises. Centuries ago, chemises were worn by men and women as an undergarment. However, as fashion developed, chemises grew unsatisfactory for covering corsets, and another piece of clothing was needed. Herein lies the origin of the first camisole shirt!

Dating all the way back to the Victorian era, camisoles first started popping up, however, they were not like the camis we see now! Different than the chemises though, camisoles back then were light and short, like they are today! It wasn’t until the 1920s that women started wearing camis as standalone shirts! This is because the 1920s saw a lot of development in fashion.

Essential Camisole Shirts

Why You Should Try a ¾ Sleeve Shirt


06 Sep 2019

Layering shirts are an essential clothing item that can be worn at any time of the year. With the various options of shirts ranging from cap sleeves to long sleeve shirts, there is another style that you might wear too frequently — ¾ sleeve shirts! From helping you achieve the perfect temperature during any season to expanding your styling options, ¾ sleeve shirts are a must when it comes to your wardrobe. Here are some reasons you should try a ¾ sleeve shirt if you haven’t already.

The Perfect Length

When it comes to ¾ sleeve shirts, you’ll benefit from their coverage on low cut tops, as well as their partial arm coverage! When a long sleeve is too much, but a basic tee or half sleeve is too little, ¾ sleeves are a perfect in-between piece! They give you the ability to cover most of your arms without having the sleeves get in the way while performing everyday tasks. The ¾ sleeves also allow you to benefit from “temperature control” in a way. The sleeves are long enough to keep you warm while also leaving open space around your forearm and wrist area, helping you to stay cooler on hot summer days.

Styling Options

The ¾ sleeve shirts that we offer at Heirloom also have the most relaxed fit of any of our other essential shirts. This makes it possible to wear the ¾ sleeve shirt under cardigans or jackets, as well as a standalone shirt. Additionally, your accessories will be highlighted even more in a ¾ sleeve shirt!

During autumn, you might want to wear long-sleeve shirts to stay warm, but you may have to sacrifice accessories like bracelets and watches. However, with a ¾ sleeve shirt, you can beat the chill while still being able to showcase your favorite accessories without having to roll up your sleeves!

In the summer, you’ll be able to shield yourself from the sun without having to completely cover your arms, something that you wouldn’t be able to achieve with a long sleeve shirt. Those three to six-inches can truly help you feel a lot more comfortable on a hot day!

When it call comes down to it, ¾ sleeve shirts are comfortable, versatile and allow for a variety of chic outfit combinations. Check out our ¾ sleeve options heirloomclothing.com today!

Preparing for Autumn by Purchasing Long Sleeve Shirts Now


05 Sep 2019

Summer is officially on its last leg, and autumn is right around the corner! With the change of season comes more colors but cooler temperatures. To offset the slight drop in degrees, changing up your wardrobe is a must! Pastels, short shorts and tees, and maybe even some of your summer sandals will have to be replaced with boots, flannels, long sleeve shirts, sweaters, and all fall colors!

More than anything, while specific colors and trends shift towards appropriate fall fashion, what you wear to stay comfortable will need to change too. Of all the changes made between summer and fall, the difference in temperature is one of the biggest!

It doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, you can wear long sleeve shirts at any time; however, once fall and winter come around, long sleeves become a vital necessity. Even during late summer nights, the temperatures can drop into the 60s, forcing everyone to throw on something a little warmer. That is part of the reason to start looking for long sleeve shirts today!

Wearing a coat right now would be too much, and caring a jacket around can be a hassle, but if you have a long sleeve, you will feel comfortable. You may not need to worry too much about the coolness in the air during the summer nights if you know you’ll be indoors, but purchasing a couple long sleeve shirts now is going to be a wise choice. While you could wait to wear your new long sleeves, there is no problem with wearing them now during these summer nights.

Once the colder weather sets in and the hanging racks at retail stores are switched out, the prices will rise! Yes, there may be more options to choose from, but there might not be as many good deals. If you seize the opportunity to purchase long sleeves shirts now, you can get your hands on some great finds before the prices jump!

Lastly, you may be excited to pull out some of your favorites from last year, but sometimes it’s difficult to find everything you used, and other times, you may not love an old outfit like you once did. Instead, find a couple new long-sleeve shirts that you are excited about! It will make the transition to fall much easier! 

To get started on your autumn wardrobe, check out the essential long sleeve shirts we have at Heirloom! Our long sleeve essentials will put you on the right path as you prepare for fall.

Why Choose a ¾ Sleeve Shirt Over a Long Sleeve Shirt


28 Aug 2019

As summer begins to wind down, it’s time to start planning your fall and winter wardrobe. While you might be looking at just throwing all your money into long sleeve shirts, you should take a step back and look into buying ¾ sleeve shirts as well.

Increased Comfortability and Temperature Control

The first reason we suggest looking into purchasing ¾ sleeve shirts is their comfortability compared to long sleeve shirts.

You Can More Easily Showcase Accessories 

If you’re a woman of many accessories, a ¾ sleeve shirt is going to help you show off that jewelry more easily than a long sleeve shirt. Some women will wear accessories like bracelets and watches over a long sleeve shirt, but if that’s not your style, your best option is a ¾ sleeve shirt.

If you’re looking for a practical option for both warm and colder weather, you’re not going to regret investing in a ¾ sleeve shirt. Head over to our website today and take a look at our chic and quality options and get started on giving your wardrobe the update it deserves.

28 Aug 2019

Layering shirts are essential clothing items that every woman should have in their wardrobe. They are versatile, making it possible to wear them in a variety of different ways, but what makes good layering tees and which characteristics make a layering shirt? Today, we’re going to be talking about layering tees and what they are, as well as what makes good layering tees.

Defining a Layering Shirt

A layering shirt is a top that can be used in collaboration with other tops. Layering shirts are generally worn under other shirts, jackets and blazers, depending on the occasion. The layering tees here at Heirloom come in a variety of different styles that open up options for you in terms of what kind of outfit you want to wear.

What Makes a Good Layering Tee?

Before you go out and buy a layering tee, you need to make sure you know how to identify a quality one. Layering tees should hold you in without binding you and also make you feel comfortable, which is why you should consider the layering tees we offer here at Heirloom Clothing. Other characteristics of a good layering tee include:

  • Smooth neckline for added coverage

Three Things to Look for When Buying Your Next Shirt


15 Aug 2019

Buying clothing might not seem like a complicated process, but if you aren’t paying attention to certain characteristics and really examining the tops for women, you may end up buying low-quality clothing that is far from comfortable. If you don’t make sure these shirts are good quality, you’ll end up having to replace them sooner than you expect to. 

So, how do you avoid buying clothing that you’re not going to be able to enjoy in the long run? Well, follow these tips and we’ll help you pick out the best tops for women. Here are three things to look for when buying your next shirt.

Versatility

Finding versatility in tops for women should be a top priority. If you’re looking to get the most out of a new shirt, you should find one that has multiple uses. Find a shirt that you can layer, wear on its own, use as a workout shirt and even wear to your next business meeting. A versatile top is the best way to ensure you’re getting your money’s worth.

Fit

The way that a shirt fits is perhaps one of the most important aspects to consider when shopping for a new top, as comfortability is crucial when you’ll be wearing the shirt for hours on end. Tops for women come in all different forms, so trying on the top you are interested will be a significant help. If you are ordering online, look for a fit guide to make sure the size you order will fit your body type. 

Fabric

Any time you talk about quality and comfort, you have to discuss fabric.  There is a lot of different types of fabric, but some are better than others, even if the material is the same. Be sure you know the fabric you purchase and what its strengths and weaknesses are when it comes to wearability.

Style

Even when tops for women fit perfectly for some, not all styles suit all body types. When shopping for a shirt, you need to make sure that you’re considering your personal style. Before checking out, ask yourself if you’re going to wear the top that you’re looking at more than once. One of the worst things you can do to your wardrobe is to crowd it with clothing that you’re never going to wear again.

These are four of the best tips to follow when you’re looking to invest in some new tops. By remembering these four tips, you’ll find a top that you absolutely love, no doubt about it. Check out our tops at Heirloom Clothing if you’re looking for quality and chic clothing.

What is a Camisole Shirt?


15 Aug 2019

When it comes to fashion, women are fortunate to have so many different styles and clothing options. While there are a number of ways to get dressed up or down, you can always utilize a camisole shirt! Everyone should already know what a cami is, but we write this blog to help those who might benefit from knowing more about how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe. However, we’ll first start by breaking down what exactly a camisole shirt is!

layering shirt

Camisole Shirts

A camisole, also commonly known as a “cami,” is a thin-strapped (or spaghetti strapped) tank top. Although some women prefer to wear them by themselves, they are traditionally used as a woman’s undershirt. You can wear a camisole underneath a low cut top for a little more coverage, as well as to help cover up other areas.

A camisole is a great option to wear because they are going to help you feel confident in your favorite shirts and outfits without feeling like you are wearing tons of bulky clothing. As with all undershirts, camisoles also smoothen out curves, making you feel comfortable and confident!

How You Can Add it to Your Wardrobe

Incorporating a simple camisole shirt into your wardrobe is very easy. If you are new to camisoles, try starting with some neutral colors, like black, white, gray or beige. This way, you can wear them underneath any shirt you own and have it blend in perfectly.

Start by wearing your cami shirt under your favorite blouses, especially the more see-through ones. Camisole shirts also work great underneath blazers, jackets, cardigans or sweaters. Again, with a wide variety of colors, you will find there is a cami that works with any layering look.

During warmer seasons, like right now, you can stay cool by wearing a cami on its own! The summer is the perfect time to try wearing your camisole by itself. Whether you are merely looking to keep cool or you are exercising, camisole shirts are a great standalone choice! A good summer outfit with a standalone cami would include a cute pair of shorts/capris and sandals. If you’re heading to the pool, throw your camisole over your swimsuit and add a pretty skirt or wrap to cover your legs.

You will find that camisoles work with almost any outfit for any occasion, and once you invest in one camisole shirt, you won’t be able to stop buying more. They really are an essential shirt to own and the reason exactly why they have been popular for so many years. To maximize your wardrobe and add some comfort and coverage to your everyday outfits, invest in a few camisole shirts today.

How to Find the Right Size ¾ Sleeve Shirt


15 Aug 2019

A ¾ sleeve shirt is one of the most versatile shirt options available, mostly due to the fact that people can wear them throughout the year, no matter what season it is. By utilizing them as layering shirts, you can wear ¾ sleeve shirts during the fall and winter, and by wearing them as standalone shirts, you can wear them during the spring and summer months. ¾ sleeve shirts are an essential piece in any wardrobe, but when you are looking for ones to purchase, you need to ensure that you’re finding the perfect fit.

In this blog post, we’re going to go over some tips to help you learn how to find ¾ sleeve shirt that fits you just right!

Picking the Right Fabric

Fabric is going to play a significant role in sizing. Some designers will recommend that you find a ¾ sleeve shirt that has some stretch fabric. The ¾ sleeve shirts that we have here at Heirloom Clothing are made up of 90 percent cotton and 10 percent spandex. The reason we recommend this is because this will help keep you comfortable all day and ensure that your shirt doesn’t rise up throughout the day. It’s also worth noting that shirts with a stretchy fabric will hold you in, helping you feel unrestricted. There are also materials out there that will help you with things like wrinkles. Pay attention to the fabric, and you’ll be able to find the perfect shirt.

Choosing the Right Cut

When looking at ¾ sleeve shirts, you’ll want to make sure you’re buying the right cut for your body type. You don’t want a shirt with a neckline that is either too baggy or too low cut. If you do find that your shirt is too baggy, try sizing down; if the shirt is too tight, you may want to size up.

Attention to Detail

Small details can make or break a top, so when you’re shopping around for your next ¾ sleeve shirt, inspect the top carefully. One example of this is the tag. Every detail matters and you don’t want a tag to irritate your skin, that’s why our essential line of tops offer a tag-less design, making for a more comfortable fit.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to find the perfect ¾ sleeve shirt for you. Luckily for you, you don’t have to go too far to find that perfect fit! The ¾ sleeve shirts we offer here at Heirloom Clothing fit these categories! For an easy and comfortable shopping experience, look no further than Heirloom Clothing.

Reasons to Choose a Long Sleeve Shirt


14 Aug 2019

Our aim at Heirloom Clothing is to provide women with the essential shirts they need to feel their best, and whether you love the style of Rosie Huntington Whitely or the Royal family, we want you to feel fashionable in whatever you wear. Our essential shirts are the best way to upgrade your closet and elevate it to the level of these women. 

Mix Silhouettes

Mixing the silhouettes of your outfits is an excellent way to bring the focus on other parts of your body. If you are looking to highlight your legs or waist, wear a long sleeve shirt instead of a 3/4 length or short sleeve. This will draw the eye to whatever part you want. To highlight your waist, wear a belt to highlight it; if you want the focus to be on your legs, wear heels that match the color of your pants to elongate them. 

Another benefit to mixing silhouettes is it looks very chic and stylish. Celebrities and style icons alike mix silhouettes to create unique looks that have not been done before. Turn your summer wardrobe around by switching your tanks out for long sleeve shirts. Pick a light fabric and color, and enjoy the sun. Mixing shorts with a white long sleeve shirt can transform your looks. Bail on the classic tank-top-and-shorts look this summer and try something unique. Not too many people will try this, but remember that long sleeve shirt will help you to avoid sun damage, a big plus for those with fair skin! 

General Long Sleeve Benefits

A long sleeve shirt is an attractive choice that gives you a lot of benefits! Long sleeve shirts provide better coverage, highlight your arms, keep you cozy, and work as layering shirts or on their own. Whether you are wearing a red floral long sleeve undershirt or need a swimsuit cover, a long sleeve is excellent because they are comfortable and give you more coverage than any other shirt. 

Different Occasions that Call for a Long Sleeve Shirt

It is not only during winter that you should wear a long sleeve shirt, but anytime. Long sleeves are a great choice for things like early morning runs or rainy days. You can also consider a long sleeve when you go camping, boating or on a road trip! Sometimes short sleeves and tank tops just don’t cut it for certain activities, especially when the sun isn’t out.

Two Quick Reasons to Choose a ¾ Sleeve Shirt Over a Long Sleeve Shirt


14 Aug 2019

Deciding what kind of shirts you want to add to your wardrobe can be difficult, but investing in various styles is a good way to go! If it comes down to making a choice between shirts with longer sleeves, you could go both ways with 3/4 sleeve shirts and full long sleeve shirts. However, in this blog, we’re going to talk about two reasons to choose a 3/4 sleeve over a long sleeve. Here are just a couple of reasons why we would suggest a 3/4 sleeve shirt!

(For reasons you might consider choosing a long sleeve shirt, check out this other blog!)

You Get More Breathing Room

Rather than having sleeves that cover the entire arm, ¾ sleeve shirts give you more airflow with the sleeves cutting several inches above the wrist. With a long sleeve shirt, you might struggle in warmer weather. You might find yourself rolling your sleeves up to cool off or to get the sleeves out of the way when doing tasks such as washing dishes. While 3/4 sleeves shirts are similar to long sleeves shirts, you don’t have to worry about rolling your sleeves up.

You Can Show Off Accessories

Another great thing about a 3/4 sleeve shirt is the fact that you can show off your accessories better; more specifically, bracelets. If you’re someone who loves to accessorize, you’ll want to choose a 3/4 sleeve shirt over a long sleeve shirt because a long sleeve is going to cover up most of your accessories.

These are just two of the main reasons you should consider 3/4 sleeve over a long sleeve, but there are definitely more. 3/4 sleeves shirts are designed to be one of the most functional layering shirts on the market right now, and the quality you get from purchasing one from us here at Heirloom is unmatchable.

If you find that you have ample room for a new wardrobe, you should definitely mix it up and check out some other layering shirt options on our website.

Freshen Up Your Closet with These Women’s Tops


14 Aug 2019

Tops for women have come a long way over the past few years; however, you can stay up to date with a few essential shirts. Below are just a couple of our favorite women tops.

A Basic Camisole 

One of the most overlooked tops for women is a camisole shirt. The straps on camisoles make them easier to layer and hide under other tops, making them a great option for uniquely cut shirts. Camisoles are used all the time, but people sometimes forget they can wear them alone. They make camisoles now with adequate fabric and support so that you will feel comfortable in them all day long.

Cap Sleeve Shirt

There are a lot of tops for women to choose from, but cap sleeve shirts are perfect! If you are looking for something a little more dainty, cap sleeves are an excellent choice! Ours specifically give you the length you need to keep your waist covered and your top looking smooth. Not only is a cap sleeve a great alternative to a regular t-shirt, but it can also be used to layer underneath a wide range of clothing to give you more coverage.

Tank Top

Tank tops have always been a favorite when it comes to tops for women. Every woman should have at least one tank top in her wardrobe. They are good for layering, wearing alone, beach cover-up, workout tops and much more. There is not a situation where you could not wear a tank top. They can be easily dressed up or down, making them one of the most versatile tops for women on the market.

There are so many different types of tops for women on the market, we only mentioned a few above. These three tops may be part of your basic set, but how you arrange your look will make all the difference! No matter your style, body shape or price range, we know there is a top like these that you are going to love.

If you are sick of wearing the same type of top every day, maybe it is time to explore the different types of tops for women. Do not be afraid to branch out of your comfort zone and try on a different top you would not normally wear. You might surprise yourself with how much you like the change.

Five Fashion Ideas for Your Camisole Shirt


14 Aug 2019

Camisole shirts are a primary option when it comes to layering. With that said, you can wear a camisole shirt with just about anything. Below are five different ideas for stying your cami.

camisole shirt

Pair With a Cute Jacket

What woman does not love a cute jacket? We believe a jacket can make the perfect addition to any outfit, especially if it is styled over the top of a cute camisole shirt! In the summer, we love to style our camisole shirts with a light denim option. We like lighter options in the summer because they aren't as hot or heavy. If you still find yourself too warm, try wrapping the jacket around your waist. It is still functional and still looks charming!

Go For an Outdoorsy Look

For those who are constantly outside under the sun this summer, do not shy away from camisole shirts. While you are hiking, playing at a park or going to a lake, camisole shirts keep you cool and maintain your sense of style. If you are worried about being cold in the crisp mountain air, pair your cami with some leggings and a flannel shirt that will provide you with some warmth but can be removed at any time. The outdoors may not be your thing, but you can still rock this look all summer long!

Keep it Simple

If you would describe your style as very simple, you can wear our camisole shirt all by themselves. Our camisoles are made out of durable material, making you feel held in and comfortable all day long. When you wear our camisole by itself, try adding a fun accessory or high waisted jeans to spice up your outfit a little!

Cozy Up

Our camisole shirt is the perfect addition to a cozy sweater or cardigan. This look works best in the fall and winter months when it is chilly outside. However, you can still rock this look in the summer months. If you have a cropped sweater, try adding one of our camisole shirts underneath to add coverage and a pop of color.

Dressed Up

Camisole shirts are easily paired with skirts and dresses. If your summer dress is a little more revealing than you may like, throw on a cami underneath. By adding a cami, it will keep you feeling confident all day. You can even wear a bright colored cami if you need to add a stronger characteristic to your outfit.

No matter your style, summer plans or body shape, there is a camisole shirt perfect for you. They are the ideal addition to any outfit. Not to mention, they are both functional AND stylish. Liven up your summer wardrobe with a camisole shirt.

Tank Tops: A Look for All Seasons


14 Aug 2019

You might be wondering about what you’re going to do with your collection of tank tops when fall comes around, but what if we told you that you didn’t have to make any changes to your wardrobe? Tank tops for women are one of the most versatile clothing items that you can invest in; they guarantee you a look for all seasons.

If you haven’t experimented with the different ways you can wear your tank top, we have you covered. We believe women’s tank tops can be used as a layering shirt for a variety of different styles that span across each season. Here are the best ways tank tops for women are worn year-round.

Spring Styles

During the spring, you’re going to experience the best of all four seasons. We are likely to experience some snow and rain showers throughout the early parts of spring, but toward the middle and end, we start to see warmer days. It’s best to layer your tank tops during this season because it gives you the option to shed some layers when it gets too hot. On the opposite side, you can stay layered up as much as you need when the weather is less than ideal. Popular spring combinations include tank tops layered under cardigans and sweaters.

Summer Looks

Tank tops for women can be used as standalone shirts when they are trying to beat the heat. Tank tops paired with denim jeans, shorts or skirts can help you stay cool while still allowing you to maintain both comfort and style.

Tank Tops in the Fall

Fall styles that include tank tops for women are similar to those worn in the spring, but there are some differences. During the fall, you can expect colder days and prominent rain showers. Tank tops can be layered under sweatshirts and cardigans like in the spring. They also can be layered under long-sleeve turtlenecks and thicker coats to help you stay warm are those particularly chilly nights.

Winter Wardrobe

You’re going to be doing a lot of layering during the winter, and there are tank tops for women that you can use! You’ll most likely be layering your tank under your long sleeve shirts and jackets. Tank tops provide you with that much-needed extra layer of clothing that will keep you warm and comfortable as the snow falls.

If you’re looking to add some new tank tops to your wardrobe, make sure to check out the options we give you on our website, today!

What Makes a Good Tank Top?


22 Jul 2019

Tank tops for women are an essential part of any woman’s summer wardrobe, but not all tank tops are the same. You should not settle for a tank that makes you feel uncomfortable and less confident. When purchasing a tank top, you want to be sure you choose a good one, but what makes a good tank top?

At Heirloom, our standpoint is that clothing should be high-quality, and no matter the item, they should be designed properly and fit comfortably. Here is what women’s tank tops should offer you.

Comfortability

There’s nothing worse than wearing clothes that make you wish that you could just get home and change into your nightwear. When looking for a good tank top, you want to make sure that you make comfort a priority. If you can’t go throughout the day without feeling uncomfortable in your new tank top, you’ve probably invested in the wrong top. The best tank tops for women will have a soft-stretch fabric and tag-less design to ensure max comfort.

Design

As you continue to look for good tank tops, another aspect to pay attention to is the design. One flaw in the design could end up ruining the overall comfort of the top. Tank tops for women should provide the wearer with a slim feminine fit; a fit that allows you to stretch, bend and lean with ease. A soft-stretch fabric, mentioned earlier, will also help hold the wearer in without binding them. With a design like this, you won’t find a better tank top.

Proportions and Sizing

There are undoubtedly some tank tops for women out there that come in weird sizes that just don’t seem to make any sense. However, we offer our customers a sizing chart to help them find the right tank top. There are things such as the extra coverage that our smooth neckline and long-length provide that women should be aware of as they try to find the right fit. Additionally, sizing up or sizing down is something to consider based on how you are looking to use your tank top.  Doing these things should help you find the best fitting tank top.

These three things are the most important things to look for when you’re searching for a good tank top. If you’re ready to invest in quality clothing this summer, make sure to check out our selection of tops on our website.

Choosing the Right Shirt for the Right Occasion


22 Jul 2019

Considering tops for women (and men) are typically the main focus of an outfit, you want to be sure you pick the right one, but how can you know what’s right when there are so many tops for women to choose from? In your own closet, there may be times when you feel there are almost too many different options. Below, we have some great tips that will leave you prepared no matter the event you are attending.

French Style Tips

Ines de la Fressange, a French fashion icon, recommends always dressing a tad bit down for the occasion. When you dress down a bit, it makes it appear as if you are not trying too hard to impress others. Doing so will likely leave you with a balanced look. The late Coco Chanel gave similar advice: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” This tip was Chanel's way of making sure she wouldn't over-accessorize.

Now, these tips depend entirely on your personal style, but they are a sure way to avoid overdressing. While there are plenty of tops for women to choose from when deciding what to wear at your next event, it might be best to simply consider what makes you most comfortable. In other words, if you feel more comfortable dressed up, ignore these French-style tips and wear what you want to wear!

Make Your Outfit Interchangeable

An excellent way to make sure that you are dressed appropriately for any event is to haul interchangeable accessories in your purse or car. If you aren’t sure how to dress for a specific event, there are pieces you can bring that can instantly dress an outfit up or down. For example, a black shirt and dark jeans can be dressed up or down in so many different ways. If you are going to a professional meeting, you can wear it with a plaid blazer, black heels, and your favorite professional jewelry. If you are going on a casual date you can add a colorful leather jacket, white sneakers, and your favorite earrings.

For occasions when you do not know what to wear, these types of outfits are perfect because they are interchangeable. If you start walking into a wedding reception and realize it is a lot dressier than you thought, you can add some classy earrings, an elegant necklace, or fancy purse and you will instantly look more fitting for the occasion.

Out of all of the dresses, skirts, coats and tops for women, wardrobe staples are oftentimes the most important. If you have a good number of essential tops and fitting accessory pieces, you should have what you need to dress appropriately for any event.

The Difference Between a Tank Top and a Camisole Shirt


22 Jul 2019

The weather is heating up, so that means it is time to break out all of your tank tops and camisole shirts. If you are wondering what the difference between a tank top and camisole shirt is, we are here to help you recognize the difference and decide which top is best for you and you!

camisole shirt

Basic Tank Top

When it comes to wearing something light for layering or as an individual piece, a basic tank top is a great option. With its smooth neckline, it offers extra coverage without being too high. It has a slim feminine fit that is going to hold you in but won’t bind you. This is perfect if you are going to be on the go all summer long. Our tank top will work wonderfully if you are looking to even a farmers tan, or if you are planning to use it underneath a sheer top or jacket.

Basic Camisole Shirt

Like our tanks, our camisole shirts can also be worn by themselves or used to layer for extra coverage. They typically come with all the same features as our tank top but are lighter around the shoulders. With thinner straps than tanks, camis work well when you are looking for something that has less material or needs to be covered easily. Ultimately though, how you wear your cami comes down to your own personal preference!

At the end of the day, our tank tops and camisole shirts do not differ that much from each other. The main difference is the size of the strap. Our tank top straps are a couple of inches in width, while the straps on our camisole shirt are about a half-inch. Once you figure out which strap size you prefer, you are set! You do not have to sacrifice style or functionality by choosing one from another. If you are still unsure, try getting both to see which one you like best!

Even though the straps are different, they both come with features you will not want to live without. Their extra length provides adequate coverage so you don’t have to worry about anything hanging out while you are at your summer barbecue or on your favorite summer hike.

No matter what you are doing this summer, tank tops and camisole shirts should be found in your summer wardrobe! Trust us on this, you will not be disappointed!

If you are looking to add a pop of color to your outfit, this color does the job wonderfully.

Antique Moss Green

Despite the name, this camisole shirt is more of a mustard-yellow color. This color is summer color but can also easily transition into your fall wardrobe. Because it is not a bright yellow, it can be worn with other colors or neutrals with ease.

Our Favorite Long Sleeve Colors in the Summer


10 Jul 2019

Finding the right color long sleeve shirt depends on the time of year and the style you are seeking to display. These two different factors really dictate what we consider to be our favorite long sleeve shirt colors. Considering it’s the middle of the summer and styles are trending away from layers, our favorite colors fall on lighter and brighter tones — ask us what our favorite color is during the winter season and you might hear something different!

A long sleeve shirt is usually worn at night or when there might be a rare summer chill, but that’s not the only time you can throw one on. There really are a lot of different circumstances in which you can wear a long sleeve shirt during the summer, but we are here to tell you the best summer color options for your long sleeve!

LIGHT-TONED LONG SLEEVES

With the summer heat, women typically wear their long sleeve shirts as a standalone, and that being the case, lighter colors will look and feel the best! Unlike black, navy and other darker colors, light blue, cream, olive and other lighter tones can handle the suns heat. For that reason, we feel comfortable wearing lighter tones!

WHITE LONG SLEEVES

While white is also a light tone, it encapsulates its own category. However, just like the other light-toned long sleeves, it doesn’t matter if it’s 50 degrees or 100 degrees, a white long sleeve shirt can be worn on both days! Now, if you know you are going to be outside all day, we wouldn’t recommend it (nor would we recommend any long sleeve), but if you have a formal event taking place inside for a couple of hours, you have nothing to worry about! Combine your white long sleeve with a long black, navy, olive or dark red skirt, and then accessorize the outfit with a necklace, bracelet and other accessories!

BRIGHT LONG SLEEVES

Brighter colors like red, yellow, pink and so forth are definitely more light than dark, but these options might be a little warmer than the other light-toned long sleeves, nevertheless, they are still great options! When it comes to colors, we tend to match temperatures, and brighter colors go well with the warm weather.

Our favorite colors will continue to shift as fall and winter rolls around, but for the time being, these lighter and brighter colors are our go-to colors for long sleeve shirts in the summer.

Our Favorite Tank Top Colors for Summer


10 Jul 2019

As summer rolls around, it’s important to know how to properly dress to both beat the heat and dress for the season in terms of style. Even if you’re trying to stay cool in the extreme temperatures that summer brings, you can still manage to dress comfortably and fashionably — there’s no need to throw style out the window.

The best way to keep cool and still stay on top of the current trends is by looking into the women’s tank tops that we offer here at Heirloom. Tank tops for women should be breathable, fashionable and provide coverage, and that’s what our tanks offer! Our tanks give you the look and comfort you want in the summer. However, the color you decide to go with will achieve different looks! Here are some of our favorite colors when it comes to tank tops.

Tango Red

Red may sound like a color you would only see on either Valentine’s Day or Christmas, but it is a vibrant color that just screams summer! The bright and fun color brings a sense of excitement and energy to your outfit. Pairing a red tank top with a pair of black or denim jeans, skirt or shorts is the best way to put together the perfect summer outfit.

Yellow Aspen Gold

Another bright color that encompasses the true feel of summer is yellow! People feel that yellow is a natural mood booster, and while the color is vibrant, it also looks great with denim jeans. Our yellow aspen gold tank top is the best shade of yellow you can get, helping your outfit stand out.

Blue Turquoise

Turquoise is another great summer color, and if you’re looking for a cooler alternative to wearing yellow and red, you can’t go wrong with this color. Tank tops for women in the summer usually come in brighter colors (as mentioned above), but cooler colors like blue can balance out those bright colors. There is nothing wrong will wearing a cooler color to the gym or under a jacket layered on top.

White

Being a color that can keep you cooler throughout the day, white is a classic summer color. Naturally, white is the polar opposite of black and acts differently entirely. White tank tops go great with virtually any color bottoms, so you don’t have to worry too much about matching.

When it comes to tank tops for women in the summer, they are must-have options in any wardrobe. By knowing and finding the right tank top color will help you stay on top of the summer fashion trends and stay cool. Check out our selection of women’s tank tops to find your next best summer color!

Tank tops for women are one of the more versatile options that we offer here at Heirloom. As a layering shirt that offers a slim and comfortable fit but also extra coverage, these tanks can be worn in multiple ways and in multiple styles. Whether you’re going for a casual look or you want to dress in a sportier manner, there isn’t a look that you can’t achieve with one of our tank tops.

We recently wrote another blog to help give you an idea about how versatile our tank tops for women are, and if you’re looking for some new and different ways to wear a tank top, here are three of the most common ones.

Tanks as Layering Shirts

Tank tops make great layering shirts! They can be layered under button-ups, flannels, and even chambrays. Button-up shirts offer so many different options when it comes to pairing them with a tank top. You can leave the shirt unbuttoned, tied around your waist, buttoned-up halfway or regularly. The possibilities are endless when it comes to tank tops and button-ups, but that’s just one style. It’s up to you to experiment with the other styles until you find the right one for you.

Sporty Outfits

There are a lot of tank tops for women that can be used as a comfortable addition to any sporty outfit. Our tank tops are comfortable and meant to stretch, bend and lean with you, so it should come as no surprise that they are perfect exercise shirts. Pair our tanks with your favorite joggers, sweat pants or shorts for a comfortable and stylish sporty look.

Professional Options

You can use our tanks to achieve a professional look. All you have to do is layer the tank top under a blazer or cardigan and you’ll see how your basic tank turns into something chic and professional. You should also opt to tuck in the tank top into your bottoms — usually, slacks or a skirt will give you the professional look you are looking for.

There are a lot of different types of tank tops for women and these are just three simple ways to utilize ours. With the unrivaled quality and comfort that our shirts offer, our tanks are great for these three specific situations. If you searching for tank tops for women, check our selection today.

Three Ways to Wear a Long Sleeve Shirt


10 Jul 2019

While they may not be the most popular shirt option, long sleeve shirts give wearers a variety of uses. Whether it be for cold days or warm days, long sleeves work in all kinds of situations. Here are three ways in which you can wear long sleeve shirts!

Cover-Up Long Sleeve

Using your long sleeve as a cover-up shirt may not be the first thought, but maybe it should be! A lot of the time, when we get chilled, our first move is to throw something over what we already have on. A long sleeve shirt is a great option for cooler evenings when the sun is waning or when cool air is blowing non-stop from the AC. In addition, you can also use your long sleeve as a cover-up shirt when you are sunbathing. Even with the strongest sunscreen products, our skin can’t handle the sun for too long. A light long sleeve can give your shoulders and arms the cover they need.

When using a cover shirt, long sleeves should be bigger and loose-fitting (consider going up a size for this use), that way they lay over your body cozily like a blanket. After using a long sleeve as a cover-up on a warmer day, you can always wrap the sleeves around your waist and stay on the move! If you need to cover your arms or just want more layers, long sleeve shirts will comfortably get the job done.

Standalone Long Sleeve

Perhaps the most common use of long sleeves is the regular standalone option. You may consider this on a day that isn’t necessarily hot or cold but in between. That may be the condition in which you consider a long sleeve the most, but it is not the only time. Long sleeve shirts also work well on days when you want to wear short-shorts around the house and curl up on the couch to read a good book or watch your favorite TV series. Further, you may start noticing more and more women wearing these shirts over their sports bras on their way to and from the gym. There really isn’t too many instances in which you can’t wear a long sleeve shirt on its own.

Layering Long Sleeve

The third way to wear your long sleeve is as a layering shirt. Most people already associate long sleeves as a winter option, but you really wouldn’t do well in the winter with just a long sleeve! Long sleeves are often layered underneath other articles of clothing, especially during the winter. Now, you can layer your long sleeve under a jacket or vest during any season, especially if you are expecting to shed whatever you have on top. Take a moment and think about all the different times and things you might be able to layer a long sleeve with.

These are the top three most common ways in which we’d suggest wearing a long sleeve shirt. Within these three ways are multiple instances and options; be sure you know what styles and sizes work for you when wearing a long sleeve shirt. For more help, see our other blogs about long sleeve shirts!

Three Ways to Wear a Camisole Shirt


10 Jul 2019

Summer is here and that means the hot weather is upon us. With that being said, camisole shirts easily become one of our favorite outfit options for tops during the summer months. We are here to tell you three ways to wear your favorite camisole shirt this summer!

camisole shirt

Wear it By Itself

If you live in a super hot climate, wear your camisole shirt by itself this summer. At Heirloom, we make sure our camisole shirts are made of the highest quality material so you can comfortably wear them during hotter months. Not only will it make you cooler in the summer sun but the look definitely fits the time of the year! Not to mention, because of their flexible nature, they are great for anything active!

Layering On Top

One of the most common ways women wear camisole shirts is with a layer on top. Some of our favorite layering options are a jean jacket, leather jacket or a chic cardigan! There are so many different layering options; the number of different outfits is essentially endless. We make our camisole shirts out of material that is not going to bunch or be bulky, making them perfect to wear under other layers. They are not going to make you overly hot or self-conscious about the material riding up or giving you unneeded lumps.

Wear Underneath Your Clothes

Another option is to use your cami as a shirt under other clothes that might be see-through or more revealing than you may like. Our camisole shirts have a high, but not too high neckline making sure you are comfortable and confident throughout your day. From the selection of our camisoles, you will find multiple colors, giving you options for whatever your needs may be.

No matter how you choose to wear your camisole shirt, we know our camisole can work with just about any outfit you pick. It has the right material and fit to make sure you are feeling your best all throughout the day. Above, we listed three ways to wear a camisole shirt, however, do not let that stop you from trying to wear it in any other way you think of. There is a camisole shirt perfect for any outfit you could possibly imagine!

Long Sleeve Shirt Fitting Guidance


01 Jul 2019

Every piece of clothing differs from one clothing company to the next, especially with long sleeve shirts. Depending on the manufacturer, you with have top seams lay differently on top of your shoulders, the cuffs fitting tighter or looser around your arms, the hems falling short or stretching down further, and the inside seams wrapping snug around your sides or hanging detached from your body. No matter how the piece of clothing is created, the best fit really comes down to what your preference is, and with long sleeve shirts, how you want to wear them is ultimately going to dictate what fit you go for!

Measurements

Even though every company has a different manufacturer and the sizes usually differ, the differences aren’t always super drastic. In fact, fitting principles can still apply from one company’s clothing to another. That’s why the principles of our fit guide can help you! Before discussing the fit of long sleeve shirts, here is a short summary of finding your measurements.

Measuring Your Chest:

  • Place your arms at your side (Note: this is NOT the same as your bra size)
  • Measure under your arms and around the fullest part of your chest
  • Keep the tape measure relaxed

Measuring Your Waist:

  • Measure around your natural waistline
  • Keep the tape measure relaxed

Measuring Your Hips:

  • Stand with your feet together
  • The tape measure should touch your hip bones

Knowing your measurements will be a big help in finding the right size for the clothes you are thinking of buying. A lot of the times, you can find out the measurements of small, medium, large and more sizes from quality companies to find the closest fit for you, but again, it’s up to your preference.

For our Scoop Neck Long Sleeve Shirts, we have the following measurements and sizes:

Find Your Preference

When it comes to the fit of long sleeve shirts, it often comes down to your preference and purpose in wearing one. Usually, the purposes include wearing them as a cover shirt, standalone shirt or layering shirt. Depending on the purpose, long sleeves can fit loosely or tightly. As a cover shirt, the more they hang over the clothes underneath, the better. Oppositely, as a layering shirt, the tighter the fit, the more comfortable it’ll be supporting whatever you have on top! Long sleeves worn as standalone shirts can have a normal fit but they can also be worn tight for a sleek and more formal look or loosely for a more casual and comfortable feel.

Whether you go with a tight or loose fit, they both work great! If you want a looser fit, you may consider going up a size, and for a tighter fit, try going down a size — there is nothing wrong with this! Some women love the cozy look and feel of a long sleeve hanging down from their shoulders and the sleeves casually extending past their hands. At the same time, others like the feeling of the sleeves fitting snuggly around their arms and waist.

Whatever look and fit you are going for, knowing your measurements, preference and purpose is going to help you the most. For our selection of long sleeve shirts and to see the measurements our sizes, take a look at our essential line! Our shirts are made with fine materials and our measurements should match most others. Take a look for yourself!

Tank Top Fit Guide


01 Jul 2019

We recently covered how to choose the right camisole for you by using our camisole fit guide, but we know that different women are looking for different layering shirt styles. With the arrival of summer, we thought it would be beneficial to cover how tank tops for women should fit and how you can find the perfect one for you. Every company has different measurements and sizes and that’s why we provide a fit guide for each of our essential shirts here is the official Heirloom fit guide covering tank tops for women.

First Things First

The first thing you’re going to want to do before choosing your next tank top is to measure before your body. We’ve covered this before but if you haven’t seen this, here is a good summary.

Measuring Your Chest:

    • Place your arms at your side (Note: this is NOT the same as your bra size).
    • Measure under your arms and around the fullest part of your chest.
    • Keep the tape measure relaxed.

Measuring Your Waist:

    • Measure around your natural waistline.
    • Keep the tape measure relaxed.

Measuring Your Hips:

    • Stand with your feet together.
    • The tape measure should touch your hip bones.

The Guide for Tank Tops

Tank tops for women usually offer a slim fit but ours also offer soft-stretch fabric that doesn’t bind, a long length that covers low cut pants and a smooth neckline for extra coverage. To really take advantage of all these benefits, you’re going to want to make sure that you don’t just guess your size, rather really investigate on which size is going to fit your body type the best. Here are the official measurements for women’s tank tops.

Our tanks range from S to XL sizes, and it’s up to your measurements — as well as  your personal preference — that will decide what size is going to be best for you. For example, if you’re looking to use your tank top as a layering shirt, you may want to go with a snugger fit, meaning you’re going to want to match your measurements as accurately as possible or even size down. If you want to use your tank top as a standalone shirt, match your measurements to the Fit Guide or even consider sizing up from your current size for a more relaxed fit.

Our products are made by women, for women, and if you’re looking for quality tank tops for women, look no further than Heirloom Clothing.

Wearing the Right Shirt for the Right Occasion


01 Jul 2019

With so many tops for women to choose from, it can be difficult to know what to get! Everyone knows that feeling where you look in your closet and have no idea what to wear. It can be easy to feel like you have no clothes even when you see a full closet. At Heirloom, we are determined to help women overcome these types of fashion slumps. 

What’s Your Occasion? 

It is very useful to think about where you spend most of your time. Do you spend most of your time at work, home or school? Pick the top three occasions you spend your time before shopping. Once you are aware of where you spend the majority of your time, it becomes easier to determine what you want for those events. If you spend a lot of time at work, depending on your office’s dress code, you may want to be more dressed up. If you need an outfit for all occasion, we recommend buying basics that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. There are various tops for women that can be dressed up or down depending on the accessories chosen. 

Accessories

When it comes to tops for women, accessories are the key to making any outfit right for the occasion. For example, any black t-shirt can be dressed up. If you wear your black shirt with a striped pencil shirt and diamond earrings, it automatically looks right for a dressier occasion. If you are looking to be more dressed up, a sheath dress is another example of something that can be dressed up a lot or dressed down for more casual situations.

Overdress or Underdress

It is always more respectful to be overdressed for an occasion, but being underdressed for an occasion is also sometimes fine! If you aren’t sure what is appropriate for your next event, then wear something that can be dressed up or down. Then if you feel uncomfortable you can always remove or add accessories. For example, if you feel overdressed at a casual wedding, you can slip off your diamond earrings and put them into your bag.

The most important thing to remember is to rock the outfits you choose with confidence. Confidence is what ties any good outfit together. There are lots of tops for women to choose from but at the end of the day, each top can be mixed and matched for a perfect combination. For a great selection of basic tops, check out our line of essential tops today!

Clothing that fits correctly takes us back to the times of designers like Christian Dior who began as an in-house designer, tailoring his clothing to perfectly fit each individual. What is the purpose of clothing if it is not fitting comfortably? This is why we have a fit guide.

How Do I Know if My Clothes Fit Right? 

To know if your clothes fit properly, you will want to ask yourself, are you comfortable in your clothing? If your clothing restricts your movement, it may not be the right fit for you. For example, if you can’t raise your arms in your blazer, it may be time to visit a tailor or buy a new one. If you feel that you can never find the right size for you, then buy the size that feels a little too big and then take it to a tailor. There are certain fashion bloggers and experts who buy all of their jeans for 15 dollars at less expensive stores then take them to be tailored to their bodies.  This method gives the buyer a cheaper cost but requires a lot of work. Although typical tops for women don’t need to be tailored, we recommend it for other unique situations.

There are other signs that your clothes aren’t fitting. If you see any of the following below, then you might have a fitting issue:   

  • Buttons come undone
  • Clothing bunches up 
  • Your inner seam is higher than your outer seam
  • Clothing rides up when you sit or stand up
  • You always need a belt

Taking pieces you have already bought that are too big to the tailor is a great way to transform clothing that you once loved. We recommend doing this for the clothing that doesn’t fit right. Another option if your clothing rides up or bothers you is to throw on one of our layering shirts under your clothing. This will help you be more comfortable because you will know that you are covered! 

Whether you are looking to upgrade your closet with new pieces or modify those you already own, it all comes back to how the clothes fit. At Heirloom, we want you to feel and look your best. While a lot of the tops for women come in all kinds of sizes, ours are resilient and can fit all kinds of body types. Taking your clothes to a tailor can be a lot of work, so when you go to buy a new shirt, be sure to find one that fits the way you want it!

Why You Need a Long Sleeve Undershirt


20 Jun 2019

During the winter season, there is no end to why a long sleeve shirt used as an undershirt is a good idea but using one for the summer is entirely different. A long sleeve shirt layered under other tops in freezing weather is a no brainer, but doing so in the heat might be too much. However, the sole purpose of using a long sleeve undershirt in the summer should not be for keeping someone warm, rather a variety of other reasons for different circumstances.

Exercising with Long Sleeves

Sounds ridiculous, right? Well, hear this out. When anyone goes to workout, the purpose is to burn calories and get in better shape, and a long sleeve shirt helps fulfill that purpose. You may have seen a few people wearing hoodies or sweats to a gym and thought they are crazy, but in reality, they are simply trying to speed up their calorie burning process. Using a comfortable long sleeve shirt under an exercise top is a good idea for those who are really looking to burn a lot of calories. Now, if you try this, be sure to stay hydrated (especially if you are working out outside) as it will be easier to overheat.

Traveling

Whether it is a long road trip or a long flight, a long sleeve shirt should always be an option. In both situations, air conditioning is going to be cranked up on high and it will likely get a little chilly. More often than a road trip, flight cabins are notoriously cold for multiple reasons. While airlines offer in-flight blankets, having a jacket with a long sleeve underneath might be more comfortable.

Too Much Sun

Okay, the use of a long sleeve here may not necessarily be as an undershirt, but there is another use for long sleeve undershirts that people may not initially think of during the summer. If you have sensitive or light skin, you may want to consider using a long sleeve to protect your skin from too much sun. In this case, your long sleeve shirt would be used as an over-shirt or coverup used when you go swimming, hiking or gardening for half of the day. Each of these activities involves you staying under the sun for long hours, and sometimes sunscreen just doesn’t cut it. After an hour or two, it is wise to throw on a long sleeve and endure the heat! While the long sleeve would likely be worn over whatever you have on in these situations, a long sleeve shirt, ones that are usually used as an undershirt, will still work great!

The ideas above may be unique, but they are not unconventional. Your long sleeve undershirts can be used for a wide variety of purposes outside of warming yourself up throughout cold winters. If you are in need of a few more long sleeve shirts, check out the selection we offer you, today!

Accessories and Clothing to Wear With a Camisole Shirt


20 Jun 2019

The accessory and clothing options you can wear with a camisole shirt are endless. At Heirloom, we want to share these endless possibilities with you. Below are accessories and clothing options for you that you can wear with one of our amazing camisole shirts.

Necklaces

Whether they be big or small, a necklace is a great accessory to camisole shirts. Its smooth neckline offers extra coverage, making it the perfect canvas for your favorite necklace. Choose from a group of dainty necklaces or a larger and more intricate necklace to top off your outfit.

Cardigans

Cardigans are a wonderful addition during any season. In the summer you can pair your favorite camisole shirt with a light cardigan to keep the sun off of you or to warm on those cool nights. On the flip side, our camisoles make the perfect base layer for a more hefty cardigan that will keep you warm in the middle of winter. Either way, cardigans pair perfectly with our camisole shirts.

Scarfs

If you think you can only wear scarfs in the winter, think again. One of our favorite summer accessories this summer is a silk scarf. They add a pop of color or pattern to any outfit. If you are trying to spice up your outfit, try pairing your camisole shirt with a fun silk scarf to spice up your outfit!

Patterned Pants

If you are looking for ways to change up your outfit, you came to the right place. Patterned pants can add a whole new dimension to your look. If you are one to wear more basic shirts, try wearing pants with a fun pattern to switch things up a little.

Jean Jackets

Jean jackets are a must-have option for every wardrobe, and a camisole shirt is a perfect complementary piece. When you pair a camisole shirt under your favorite jean jacket, it is not only nice for how light it is, but it also gives your outfit the additional color it needs!

A Sheer Top

Wearing a sheer shirt is always fun, and a camisole underneath is all the coverage you need. A cami used under a sheer shirt is slimming; there is usually no extra bulk added to the sheer shirt with a camisole. We know you’ll love wearing your sheer shirt with one of our camisoles!

There are so many different ways to wear our camisole shirts and so many different accessories you can pair them with. Make sure your summer wardrobe complete with a handful of different camisoles! No matter how you choose to wear your camisole, take a look at ours to find the most comfortable camisole you’ll find!

Fit Guide — How Do I Find the Right Size Shirt?


20 Jun 2019

Finding an essential top that fits exactly how you want is extremely important. When someone finds the perfect size, they usually feel more confident and comfortable, something we all want with our clothes. While there is a wide variety of tops for women to choose from, we have a step by step guide that will help you find your right size. 

Finding Your Measurements 

The first thing we would recommend is finding your measurements, that way you can compare sizes based on your actual measurements. This is essential because no two women are the same, and all the tops that are made for women are going to fit differently on each of us. When you start measuring, you will want to wear the underwear you would when you wear the clothes you want to buy. To make proper measurements, follow the instructions below:

Chest Measurements

  • Place your arms at your side
  • Measure under arms, around the fullest part of your chest

Waist Measurements (the slimmest part of the waist)

  • Measure around your natural waistline
  • Keep the tape relaxed — don’t pull tight

Hip Measurements

  • Stand with feet together
  • Tape should touch both hipbones

Consult the sizing chart to decide which size would suit you the best. Not all women have an hourglass body shape and it is up to you to size up or down to compensate for the difference. It’s also a good idea to ask yourself, how do I want to wear my shirt? Although tops for women are usually designed to fit hourglass measurements, you can still decide which fit is best for you. For example, if you have a 34-27-38 you may want to size up from a small to a medium, that way the shirt won’t fit too tightly around your hips. All the tops for women are going to differ, but you should be able to apply the same principles to just about any fitting situation.

 

 

Considering Your Preferences

It’s good to have an opinion on how to wear your clothes, but if you don’t already have a preference, it will help to consider the following ideas.

  • If you prefer a little tightness on the hips, then keep to a smaller size.   
  • If you are looking to wear your top as an undershirt, we recommend sticking to the size chart.
  • If you are looking to wear your cap sleeve as a stand-alone shirt, consider the next size up.

These are just a few examples, but there are other considerations that you can make. In the end, your preference is really up to you — only you know what fits you best and what you feel the most comfortable in. If you are coming back around to finding what you are most comfortable in, remember these principles and you should be fine!

There are a lot of options when it comes to essential tops for women, but be sure to check out our selection. We are confident you’ll like what you find!

Long Sleeve Shirts in the Summer?


13 Jun 2019

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


13 Jun 2019

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. So, if you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe, make sure to check out the selection of sleeveless tops available on our website. You won’t find better essential tops anywhere else.

Our Favorite Color Combinations for Fall

15 Oct 2019

It’s finally fall! Time for autumn activities like hayrides, apple picking and bonfires with friends and family. No matter what activity it is, Heirloom has everything you need to update your fall wardrobe from ¾ sleeve shirts to comfy sweaters! With so many color options to choose from, you can get the exact look you want! We have some exciting color combinations that will transition your current wardrobe for the new chilly season.

Tango Red and Black

Black is always in style but in the fall, adding a bright pop of red can make any outfit stand out. Tango red reminds us of colorful leaves and delicious red apples, and always pairs well with black. You can also use these colors in your outfit to draw attention to specific pieces of clothing. Try wearing a Tango red ¾ sleeve shirt with a black jacket and jeans. Even though it’s not the outermost piece of clothing, the red will pop against the black creating a more interesting color combination. Another fun way to wear Tango red and black involves accessorizing. Throw on a black ¾ sleeve shirt and black pants to start. Now add red heels and a red scarf to create a clean and exciting look. Wearing all black creates a canvas to showcase the red accents in your outfit, making it stand out. 

Navy and Grey

Not every fall outfit needs warm colors. Navy and grey is a great option for anyone who wants a more subtle outfit that still contains colors. We love our navy ¾ sleeve shirt paired with a grey knit cardigan, jeans and booties. It’s an easy fall outfit that you can depend on for any casual outing! For something more suitable for the office, try a navy blazer with a grey top underneath. The navy will make the grey stand out and is a great alternative to the common black and white office suit. 

Cream and Moss

Our cream ¾ sleeve shirt paired with moss green pants are a great outfit choice for fall! The darker shades of green moss with the warmer white hues in cream compliment each other and add an earthy tone to your outfit. If you want to stand out, try a cream blazer with a black camisole shirt and moss tie waist pants. This color combo is perfect for casual outfits or work outfits and will fit right in with the season.

If you need to stock up on essentials for fall, check out our ¾ sleeve shirt. With 15 different color options, you can get exactly what you want and create a versatile wardrobe. Check out our website and grab your favorite fall colors today!

The Most Flattering Colors to Wear

15 Oct 2019

Whether you recognize the reason or not, there are moments when you will see a specific shirt and determine on the spot if it will work for you. A lot of the time, that determining factor comes down to how well the color complements our complexion. When it comes down to it, what color looks best on us is highly affected by our skin tone! This is a profound reason why some outfits look great and others do not.

There are complementary properties within colors that work together naturally when blended, and the results of two well-matched colors equal one cohesive look. If a certain color of a 3/4 sleeve shirt goes nicely with a specific color of bottoms, then why would it be any different with colors of apparel and the tone of our skin? It’s not! That’s why the most flattering to wear depends on the tone of your skin.

3/4 sleeve shirt

Here is a brief list of the colors that go with your skin tone.

Colors for Each Skin Tone

Fair (or porcelain/pale) — Pastel Blue, Baby Pink, Heather Gray, Peach, Coral

Light (or ivory/beige) — Soft Rose, Dusty Pinks, Seafoam Green

Medium (or olive/gold) — Creamy Peach, Berry, Aspen Gold, Light Purple, Dark Jade Green

Tan (bronze/caramel) — Neutrals, Bleached Sand, Olive Green, Navy, Tango Red

Rich (or deep/espresso) — Royal Blue, Amethyst, Emerald Green, Turquoise, Crimson, White

*Note: The title of these skin tones are speculative and may not represent all tones; this is simply our summary.

The Power of Black Apparel

It is also worth mentioning briefly that black pants, shorts, tees, jackets and just about any other piece of garment looks nice on anybody! There is something magical about black that seems to help all body types appear slim and chic. Some people love black so much that they will don a full black-on-black outfit and nothing else. However, we are sure there are other combinations that feature a combination of black and another color that will look flattering on you. Perhaps a peach 3/4 sleeve shirt and black bottoms! Whatever it is, in addition to some of the most flattering colors mentioned above, give black a try!

Long Sleeve Shirts and Fall Colors

02 Oct 2019

You may have noticed the weather’s bipolar behavior over the past couple of weeks, and while the temperature isn’t anything we can be certain of day-to-day, there is one thing we can be sure of and that is that the weather is only going to get colder from here on out! We may still have days with sweltering highs in the 80s, but our lows are dropping into the mid-40s. The thing is, we are at the very beginning of autumn! This means it is officially time to switch from summer capris and tees to fall jeans and long sleeves!

It doesn’t take a fashion insider to know that it’s time to start dressing warmer, but we do want to emphasize how nice singular long sleeve shirts are at this time of the year. In addition, you may want to think about finding fall colors for your fall outfits!

The Convenience of Long Sleeve Shirts Right Now

When it all comes down to it, clothing’s purpose is to help us feel comfortable when we go outside! Yes, we want to look our best, and some styles and designs make us feel confident when we meet up with others, but you wouldn’t wear a cute summer outfit in the dead of winter just because it looks good. Throughout the fall, a long sleeve shirt gives you the comfort you need with the weather gradually dropping degrees. Not to mention, standalone long sleeves fit in with fall fashion!

Any time we turn the corner on summer, there are a lot of different outfits we can consider. Boots, leggings, jeans, flannels, vests, jackets, and of course, long sleeve shirts! There may be a few warm autumn days, but on those days you can pull your sleeves up a bit and remove any additional layers to stay comfortable if you start feeling a little warm. What really marks a fall outfit is the color, and there are a variety of combinations you can try!

Fall Colors and Combinations

At Heirloom, we have a variety of color options for you to choose from with all of our essential shirts, but when it comes to our long sleeve shirts, the top two we’d suggest are our Tango Red and Dutch Brown! Both of these options are bold enough to wear on their own with accompanying jeans or pants and additional accessories! Beyond these two colors, you can also create beautiful fall combinations with our black and white long sleeve options.

Going back to some of the other fall looks mentioned above, there are a lot of ways to look great during this season. Whether you wrap it around your waist or throw it over a black or white long sleeve, adding a red or yellow flannel to your outfit will look lovely! One of the easiest yet stunning fall looks is a combination of classic jeans and a white long sleeve shirt layered under an orange or red jacket, vest or cardigan.

These are just a few ideas you can consider, but there is a lot more! Whatever you decide to try, do it now! Don’t wait for the cold to set in before you find your fall colors and combinations. For the most comfortable long sleeve shirts, check out our selection today!

Why Should You Use a Layering Shirt?

02 Oct 2019

Layering tees open up endless opportunities when it comes to putting together a chic outfit. Aside from this, they also allow you to stay cool during the summer and warm during the winter. There are various reasons to invest in a layering shirt, and in this blog, we’re going to talk about the most important ones. 

Whether you’re trying to upgrade your wardrobe or you’re simply wanting to add some more timeless pieces to your closet, here is why you should use a layering shirt.

Style Options

The first thing we mentioned is that layering tees can help you achieve various different outfits. If you’re looking to switch up your appearance and experiment with different styles, layering tees are the perfect addition to almost any outfit. When you wear them under other shirts, you can wear a variety of other outfits you would otherwise feel uncomfortable within certain situations. For example, a camisole shirt under a sheer shirt gives you the ability to wear that sheer shirt almost anywhere!

Temperature Control

Another reason you should consider layering tees is because they give you the ability to layer and stay warm in the winter. Additionally, they work equally well as a standalone shirt in the summer! You can layer a cami under a long sleeve shirt, and then bundle up with a jacket. Some accessories that will keep you warm include scarves, gloves and a beanie. 

Stay Covered 

There are a lot of positives with layering, but the layering tees here at Heirloom are unlike any other. Our layering shirts are designed to stretch, bend and lean with you without binding you in. If you’re looking to keep yourself covered as you go about your daily routine — or even while you’re working out — layering tees are the way to go! Once you start layering more, you are going to find just how useful they are.

Layering tees have various uses, and we hope you’ve drawn some inspiration form this post! There are so many reasons for you to start investing in a few layering shirts of your own, so don’t wait! If you’re in the market for high-quality clothing, check out our selection at Heirloom Clothing.

06 Sep 2019

As is the case every year, once summer is over, things only get colder. However, fall and winter do not have to be miserable! In fact, there is so much beauty and fun to be had during these seasons! People’s attitudes are deeply connected with their emotions, and when we are uncomfortable, we may not be as happy. With the shift in seasons, if we aren’t prepared, we may find ourselves uncomfortable and unhappy all due to the changing temperature outside.

Filling your wardrobe with long sleeve shirts, sweaters, scarfs and other cold-weather apparel can make all the difference for you during the fall and winter. While some women love trying different summer-wardrobe combinations, there can be equal excitement for fall and winter outfits!

Creating Mental Images

Perhaps you can see yourself in some cute jeans, warm boots, cozy gloves, and a throwback sweater with a long sleeve underneath and a scarf wrapped around your neck; or maybe, you see yourself cuddled up in a blanket next to an indoor fire in a boyfriend-sized hoodie! Whatever the look is, visualizing yourself in warm outfits will help you mentally prepare for the cold! Now, creating mental images is not the only way to start preparing for the upcoming fall and winter weather, you can go out and start making purchases early!

Stocking Up Now

The earlier you start shopping for long sleeve shirts and other colder weather clothing, the better. Stocking up now isn’t a good idea just because the prices might rise as the temperature drops, but for two other reasons! The first reason being, by adding long sleeve shirts into your wardrobe now, you’ll be prepared for some of those random, earlier-than-usual cold days. Additionally, you will start getting a better idea of what kind of outfit combinations might be good for you as the seasons change.

DON’T WAIT

The cold is on its way, but you can be prepared! You may not need to start pulling out your coat or start shopping for new jackets, but don’t wait to start looking for long sleeve shirts. Some mornings and evenings even call for a long sleeve shirt right now! The earlier you prepare for the cold, the more comfortable you will be throughout fall and winter!

Camisole Shirts: a Brief History and Common Terms Today

02 Oct 2019

There are a lot of different terms in the fashion world, and camisole shirts are one that have just a few, but why? The use of the word camisole didn’t blow up in English languages until recent years. Before the 1960s, there aren’t a lot of mentions of the word camisole seen anywhere, but is that because they didn’t exist or because they called them something else?

We are going to answer this and tell you all the different terms for camisole shirts in this blog!

Common Terms Today

While one form of a camisole shirt has existed for nearly two centuries, there isn’t a lot of variations in the terminology. The other names camisole shirts go by are, camis, spaghetti straps, or a woman’s undershirt. Another title women might use for a camisole is a tank top, but this is incorrect. The straps on a tank top are much wider than a camisole and really shouldn’t be confused with a camisole shirt; the other terms are more than appropriate!

It isn’t much of a mystery why terms like spaghetti strap, cami, and undershirt have developed over the years. The shoulder strap design on camisole shirts is extremely skinny, and the thinness of the strap resembles that of a single spaghetti strand. As far as the undershirt goes, there aren’t many options as light and comfortable as a camisole. The reason why camisoles are called camis is obvious and doesn’t need much more explanation than it’s an abbreviated version.

Outside of these few terms, there are no other popular names for the camisole. However, there are other names of apparel from which the camisole received its title.

History and Ancient Terminology

The term camisole derives from France where they likely took the word from camiciola (Italian) or camisola (Spanish). Both roots originate from the Latin-base, camisia, which translates to shirt or nightgown. While camis are commonly worn at night and are a basic essential shirt, this term relates closer to chemises. Centuries ago, chemises were worn by men and women as an undergarment. However, as fashion developed, chemises grew unsatisfactory for covering corsets, and another piece of clothing was needed. Herein lies the origin of the first camisole shirt!

Dating all the way back to the Victorian era, camisoles first started popping up, however, they were not like the camis we see now! Different than the chemises though, camisoles back then were light and short, like they are today! It wasn’t until the 1920s that women started wearing camis as standalone shirts! This is because the 1920s saw a lot of development in fashion.

Essential Camisole Shirts

Camisole shirts are a staple piece in women’s closets today, but that doesn’t mean they are all made with the same quality. For a cami that fits and feels the way you want, order a cami from Heirloom Clothing — We have the best essentials clothing for women!

Why You Should Try a ¾ Sleeve Shirt

06 Sep 2019

Layering shirts are an essential clothing item that can be worn at any time of the year. With the various options of shirts ranging from cap sleeves to long sleeve shirts, there is another style that you might wear too frequently — ¾ sleeve shirts! From helping you achieve the perfect temperature during any season to expanding your styling options, ¾ sleeve shirts are a must when it comes to your wardrobe. Here are some reasons you should try a ¾ sleeve shirt if you haven’t already.

The Perfect Length

When it comes to ¾ sleeve shirts, you’ll benefit from their coverage on low cut tops, as well as their partial arm coverage! When a long sleeve is too much, but a basic tee or half sleeve is too little, ¾ sleeves are a perfect in-between piece! They give you the ability to cover most of your arms without having the sleeves get in the way while performing everyday tasks. The ¾ sleeves also allow you to benefit from “temperature control” in a way. The sleeves are long enough to keep you warm while also leaving open space around your forearm and wrist area, helping you to stay cooler on hot summer days.

Styling Options

The ¾ sleeve shirts that we offer at Heirloom also have the most relaxed fit of any of our other essential shirts. This makes it possible to wear the ¾ sleeve shirt under cardigans or jackets, as well as a standalone shirt. Additionally, your accessories will be highlighted even more in a ¾ sleeve shirt!

During autumn, you might want to wear long-sleeve shirts to stay warm, but you may have to sacrifice accessories like bracelets and watches. However, with a ¾ sleeve shirt, you can beat the chill while still being able to showcase your favorite accessories without having to roll up your sleeves!

In the summer, you’ll be able to shield yourself from the sun without having to completely cover your arms, something that you wouldn’t be able to achieve with a long sleeve shirt. Those three to six-inches can truly help you feel a lot more comfortable on a hot day!

When it call comes down to it, ¾ sleeve shirts are comfortable, versatile and allow for a variety of chic outfit combinations. Check out our ¾ sleeve options heirloomclothing.com today!

Preparing for Autumn by Purchasing Long Sleeve Shirts Now

05 Sep 2019

Summer is officially on its last leg, and autumn is right around the corner! With the change of season comes more colors but cooler temperatures. To offset the slight drop in degrees, changing up your wardrobe is a must! Pastels, short shorts and tees, and maybe even some of your summer sandals will have to be replaced with boots, flannels, long sleeve shirts, sweaters, and all fall colors!

More than anything, while specific colors and trends shift towards appropriate fall fashion, what you wear to stay comfortable will need to change too. Of all the changes made between summer and fall, the difference in temperature is one of the biggest!

It doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, you can wear long sleeve shirts at any time; however, once fall and winter come around, long sleeves become a vital necessity. Even during late summer nights, the temperatures can drop into the 60s, forcing everyone to throw on something a little warmer. That is part of the reason to start looking for long sleeve shirts today!

Wearing a coat right now would be too much, and caring a jacket around can be a hassle, but if you have a long sleeve, you will feel comfortable. You may not need to worry too much about the coolness in the air during the summer nights if you know you’ll be indoors, but purchasing a couple long sleeve shirts now is going to be a wise choice. While you could wait to wear your new long sleeves, there is no problem with wearing them now during these summer nights.

Once the colder weather sets in and the hanging racks at retail stores are switched out, the prices will rise! Yes, there may be more options to choose from, but there might not be as many good deals. If you seize the opportunity to purchase long sleeves shirts now, you can get your hands on some great finds before the prices jump!

Lastly, you may be excited to pull out some of your favorites from last year, but sometimes it’s difficult to find everything you used, and other times, you may not love an old outfit like you once did. Instead, find a couple new long-sleeve shirts that you are excited about! It will make the transition to fall much easier! 

To get started on your autumn wardrobe, check out the essential long sleeve shirts we have at Heirloom! Our long sleeve essentials will put you on the right path as you prepare for fall.

Why Choose a ¾ Sleeve Shirt Over a Long Sleeve Shirt

28 Aug 2019

As summer begins to wind down, it’s time to start planning your fall and winter wardrobe. While you might be looking at just throwing all your money into long sleeve shirts, you should take a step back and look into buying ¾ sleeve shirts as well. You might be wondering why you should choose a ¾ sleeve shirt over a long sleeve shirt, especially when it comes to fighting off the cold, but we here at Heirloom Clothing are here to give you a few reasons as to why you should definitely add some ¾ sleeve shirts to your wardrobe.

Increased Comfortability and Temperature Control

The first reason we suggest looking into purchasing ¾ sleeve shirts is their comfortability compared to long sleeve shirts. While both shirts are great options for cold weather, ¾ sleeve shirts allow you to more easily “control” the temperature in a way. While it might be cold outside, you might be faced with warmer weather while indoors, especially if you’re dealing with heaters. ¾ sleeve shirts make it so that you don’t have to roll up your sleeves over and over again when you’re trying to get some extra air, and they also feel less overbearing at times.

You Can More Easily Showcase Accessories 

If you’re a woman of many accessories, a ¾ sleeve shirt is going to help you show off that jewelry more easily than a long sleeve shirt. Some women will wear accessories like bracelets and watches over a long sleeve shirt, but if that’s not your style, your best option is a ¾ sleeve shirt.

If you’re looking for a practical option for both warm and colder weather, you’re not going to regret investing in a ¾ sleeve shirt. Head over to our website today and take a look at our chic and quality options and get started on giving your wardrobe the update it deserves.

They are versatile, making it possible to wear them in a variety of different ways, but what makes good layering tees and which characteristics make a layering shirt? Today, we’re going to be talking about layering tees and what they are, as well as what makes good layering tees.

Defining a Layering Shirt

A layering shirt is a top that can be used in collaboration with other tops. Layering shirts are generally worn under other shirts, jackets and blazers, depending on the occasion. The layering tees here at Heirloom come in a variety of different styles that open up options for you in terms of what kind of outfit you want to wear.

Three Things to Look for When Buying Your Next Shirt

15 Aug 2019

Buying clothing might not seem like a complicated process, but if you aren’t paying attention to certain characteristics and really examining the tops for women, you may end up buying low-quality clothing that is far from comfortable. If you don’t make sure these shirts are good quality, you’ll end up having to replace them sooner than you expect to. 

So, how do you avoid buying clothing that you’re not going to be able to enjoy in the long run? Well, follow these tips and we’ll help you pick out the best tops for women. Here are three things to look for when buying your next shirt.

Versatility

Finding versatility in tops for women should be a top priority. If you’re looking to get the most out of a new shirt, you should find one that has multiple uses. Find a shirt that you can layer, wear on its own, use as a workout shirt and even wear to your next business meeting. A versatile top is the best way to ensure you’re getting your money’s worth.

Fit

The way that a shirt fits is perhaps one of the most important aspects to consider when shopping for a new top, as comfortability is crucial when you’ll be wearing the shirt for hours on end. Tops for women come in all different forms, so trying on the top you are interested will be a significant help. If you are ordering online, look for a fit guide to make sure the size you order will fit your body type. 

Fabric

Any time you talk about quality and comfort, you have to discuss fabric.  There is a lot of different types of fabric, but some are better than others, even if the material is the same. Be sure you know the fabric you purchase and what its strengths and weaknesses are when it comes to wearability.

Style

Even when tops for women fit perfectly for some, not all styles suit all body types. When shopping for a shirt, you need to make sure that you’re considering your personal style. Before checking out, ask yourself if you’re going to wear the top that you’re looking at more than once. One of the worst things you can do to your wardrobe is to crowd it with clothing that you’re never going to wear again.

These are four of the best tips to follow when you’re looking to invest in some new tops. By remembering these four tips, you’ll find a top that you absolutely love, no doubt about it. Check out our tops at Heirloom Clothing if you’re looking for quality and chic clothing.

What is a Camisole Shirt?

15 Aug 2019

When it comes to fashion, women are fortunate to have so many different styles and clothing options. While there are a number of ways to get dressed up or down, you can always utilize a camisole shirt! Everyone should already know what a cami is, but we write this blog to help those who might benefit from knowing more about how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe. However, we’ll first start by breaking down what exactly a camisole shirt is!

layering shirt

Camisole Shirts

A camisole, also commonly known as a “cami,” is a thin-strapped (or spaghetti strapped) tank top. Although some women prefer to wear them by themselves, they are traditionally used as a woman’s undershirt. You can wear a camisole underneath a low cut top for a little more coverage, as well as to help cover up other areas.

A camisole is a great option to wear because they are going to help you feel confident in your favorite shirts and outfits without feeling like you are wearing tons of bulky clothing. As with all undershirts, camisoles also smoothen out curves, making you feel comfortable and confident!

How You Can Add it to Your Wardrobe

Incorporating a simple camisole shirt into your wardrobe is very easy. If you are new to camisoles, try starting with some neutral colors, like black, white, gray or beige. This way, you can wear them underneath any shirt you own and have it blend in perfectly.

Start by wearing your cami shirt under your favorite blouses, especially the more see-through ones. Camisole shirts also work great underneath blazers, jackets, cardigans or sweaters. Again, with a wide variety of colors, you will find there is a cami that works with any layering look.

During warmer seasons, like right now, you can stay cool by wearing a cami on its own! The summer is the perfect time to try wearing your camisole by itself. Whether you are merely looking to keep cool or you are exercising, camisole shirts are a great standalone choice! A good summer outfit with a standalone cami would include a cute pair of shorts/capris and sandals. If you’re heading to the pool, throw your camisole over your swimsuit and add a pretty skirt or wrap to cover your legs.

You will find that camisoles work with almost any outfit for any occasion, and once you invest in one camisole shirt, you won’t be able to stop buying more. They really are an essential shirt to own and the reason exactly why they have been popular for so many years. To maximize your wardrobe and add some comfort and coverage to your everyday outfits, invest in a few camisole shirts today.

How to Find the Right Size ¾ Sleeve Shirt

15 Aug 2019

A ¾ sleeve shirt is one of the most versatile shirt options available, mostly due to the fact that people can wear them throughout the year, no matter what season it is. By utilizing them as layering shirts, you can wear ¾ sleeve shirts during the fall and winter, and by wearing them as standalone shirts, you can wear them during the spring and summer months. ¾ sleeve shirts are an essential piece in any wardrobe, but when you are looking for ones to purchase, you need to ensure that you’re finding the perfect fit.

In this blog post, we’re going to go over some tips to help you learn how to find ¾ sleeve shirt that fits you just right!

Picking the Right Fabric

Fabric is going to play a significant role in sizing. Some designers will recommend that you find a ¾ sleeve shirt that has some stretch fabric. The ¾ sleeve shirts that we have here at Heirloom Clothing are made up of 90 percent cotton and 10 percent spandex. The reason we recommend this is because this will help keep you comfortable all day and ensure that your shirt doesn’t rise up throughout the day. It’s also worth noting that shirts with a stretchy fabric will hold you in, helping you feel unrestricted. There are also materials out there that will help you with things like wrinkles. Pay attention to the fabric, and you’ll be able to find the perfect shirt.

Choosing the Right Cut

When looking at ¾ sleeve shirts, you’ll want to make sure you’re buying the right cut for your body type. You don’t want a shirt with a neckline that is either too baggy or too low cut. If you do find that your shirt is too baggy, try sizing down; if the shirt is too tight, you may want to size up.

Attention to Detail

Small details can make or break a top, so when you’re shopping around for your next ¾ sleeve shirt, inspect the top carefully. One example of this is the tag. Every detail matters and you don’t want a tag to irritate your skin, that’s why our essential line of tops offer a tag-less design, making for a more comfortable fit.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to find the perfect ¾ sleeve shirt for you. Luckily for you, you don’t have to go too far to find that perfect fit! The ¾ sleeve shirts we offer here at Heirloom Clothing fit these categories! For an easy and comfortable shopping experience, look no further than Heirloom Clothing.

Reasons to Choose a Long Sleeve Shirt

14 Aug 2019

Our aim at Heirloom Clothing is to provide women with the essential shirts they need to feel their best, and whether you love the style of Rosie Huntington Whitely or the Royal family, we want you to feel fashionable in whatever you wear. Our essential shirts are the best way to upgrade your closet and elevate it to the level of these women. 

Mix Silhouettes

Mixing the silhouettes of your outfits is an excellent way to bring the focus on other parts of your body. If you are looking to highlight your legs or waist, wear a long sleeve shirt instead of a 3/4 length or short sleeve. This will draw the eye to whatever part you want. To highlight your waist, wear a belt to highlight it; if you want the focus to be on your legs, wear heels that match the color of your pants to elongate them. 

Another benefit to mixing silhouettes is it looks very chic and stylish. Celebrities and style icons alike mix silhouettes to create unique looks that have not been done before. Turn your summer wardrobe around by switching your tanks out for long sleeve shirts. Pick a light fabric and color, and enjoy the sun. Mixing shorts with a white long sleeve shirt can transform your looks. Bail on the classic tank-top-and-shorts look this summer and try something unique. Not too many people will try this, but remember that long sleeve shirt will help you to avoid sun damage, a big plus for those with fair skin! 

General Long Sleeve Benefits

A long sleeve shirt is an attractive choice that gives you a lot of benefits! Long sleeve shirts provide better coverage, highlight your arms, keep you cozy, and work as layering shirts or on their own. Whether you are wearing a red floral long sleeve undershirt or need a swimsuit cover, a long sleeve is excellent because they are comfortable and give you more coverage than any other shirt. 

Different Occasions that Call for a Long Sleeve Shirt

It is not only during winter that you should wear a long sleeve shirt, but anytime. Long sleeves are a great choice for things like early morning runs or rainy days. You can also consider a long sleeve when you go camping, boating or on a road trip! Sometimes short sleeves and tank tops just don’t cut it for certain activities, especially when the sun isn’t out.

Two Quick Reasons to Choose a ¾ Sleeve Shirt Over a Long Sleeve Shirt

14 Aug 2019

Deciding what kind of shirts you want to add to your wardrobe can be difficult, but investing in various styles is a good way to go! If it comes down to making a choice between shirts with longer sleeves, you could go both ways with 3/4 sleeve shirts and full long sleeve shirts. However, in this blog, we’re going to talk about two reasons to choose a 3/4 sleeve over a long sleeve. Here are just a couple of reasons why we would suggest a 3/4 sleeve shirt!

(For reasons you might consider choosing a long sleeve shirt, check out this other blog!)

You Get More Breathing Room

Rather than having sleeves that cover the entire arm, ¾ sleeve shirts give you more airflow with the sleeves cutting several inches above the wrist. With a long sleeve shirt, you might struggle in warmer weather. You might find yourself rolling your sleeves up to cool off or to get the sleeves out of the way when doing tasks such as washing dishes. While 3/4 sleeves shirts are similar to long sleeves shirts, you don’t have to worry about rolling your sleeves up.

You Can Show Off Accessories

Another great thing about a 3/4 sleeve shirt is the fact that you can show off your accessories better; more specifically, bracelets. If you’re someone who loves to accessorize, you’ll want to choose a 3/4 sleeve shirt over a long sleeve shirt because a long sleeve is going to cover up most of your accessories.

These are just two of the main reasons you should consider 3/4 sleeve over a long sleeve, but there are definitely more. 3/4 sleeves shirts are designed to be one of the most functional layering shirts on the market right now, and the quality you get from purchasing one from us here at Heirloom is unmatchable.

If you find that you have ample room for a new wardrobe, you should definitely mix it up and check out some other layering shirt options on our website.

Freshen Up Your Closet with These Women’s Tops

14 Aug 2019

Tops for women have come a long way over the past few years; however, you can stay up to date with a few essential shirts. Below are just a couple of our favorite women tops.

A Basic Camisole 

One of the most overlooked tops for women is a camisole shirt. The straps on camisoles make them easier to layer and hide under other tops, making them a great option for uniquely cut shirts. Camisoles are used all the time, but people sometimes forget they can wear them alone. They make camisoles now with adequate fabric and support so that you will feel comfortable in them all day long.

Cap Sleeve Shirt

There are a lot of tops for women to choose from, but cap sleeve shirts are perfect! If you are looking for something a little more dainty, cap sleeves are an excellent choice! Ours specifically give you the length you need to keep your waist covered and your top looking smooth. Not only is a cap sleeve a great alternative to a regular t-shirt, but it can also be used to layer underneath a wide range of clothing to give you more coverage.

Tank Top

Tank tops have always been a favorite when it comes to tops for women. Every woman should have at least one tank top in her wardrobe. They are good for layering, wearing alone, beach cover-up, workout tops and much more. There is not a situation where you could not wear a tank top. They can be easily dressed up or down, making them one of the most versatile tops for women on the market.

There are so many different types of tops for women on the market, we only mentioned a few above. These three tops may be part of your basic set, but how you arrange your look will make all the difference! No matter your style, body shape or price range, we know there is a top like these that you are going to love.

If you are sick of wearing the same type of top every day, maybe it is time to explore the different types of tops for women. Do not be afraid to branch out of your comfort zone and try on a different top you would not normally wear. You might surprise yourself with how much you like the change.

Five Fashion Ideas for Your Camisole Shirt

14 Aug 2019

Camisole shirts are a primary option when it comes to layering. With that said, you can wear a camisole shirt with just about anything. Below are five different ideas for stying your cami.

camisole shirt

Pair With a Cute Jacket

What woman does not love a cute jacket? We believe a jacket can make the perfect addition to any outfit, especially if it is styled over the top of a cute camisole shirt! In the summer, we love to style our camisole shirts with a light denim option. We like lighter options in the summer because they aren't as hot or heavy. If you still find yourself too warm, try wrapping the jacket around your waist. It is still functional and still looks charming!

Go For an Outdoorsy Look

For those who are constantly outside under the sun this summer, do not shy away from camisole shirts. While you are hiking, playing at a park or going to a lake, camisole shirts keep you cool and maintain your sense of style. If you are worried about being cold in the crisp mountain air, pair your cami with some leggings and a flannel shirt that will provide you with some warmth but can be removed at any time. The outdoors may not be your thing, but you can still rock this look all summer long!

Keep it Simple

If you would describe your style as very simple, you can wear our camisole shirt all by themselves. Our camisoles are made out of durable material, making you feel held in and comfortable all day long. When you wear our camisole by itself, try adding a fun accessory or high waisted jeans to spice up your outfit a little!

Cozy Up

Our camisole shirt is the perfect addition to a cozy sweater or cardigan. This look works best in the fall and winter months when it is chilly outside. However, you can still rock this look in the summer months. If you have a cropped sweater, try adding one of our camisole shirts underneath to add coverage and a pop of color.

Dressed Up

Camisole shirts are easily paired with skirts and dresses. If your summer dress is a little more revealing than you may like, throw on a cami underneath. By adding a cami, it will keep you feeling confident all day. You can even wear a bright colored cami if you need to add a stronger characteristic to your outfit.

No matter your style, summer plans or body shape, there is a camisole shirt perfect for you. They are the ideal addition to any outfit. Not to mention, they are both functional AND stylish. Liven up your summer wardrobe with a camisole shirt.

Tank Tops: A Look for All Seasons

14 Aug 2019

You might be wondering about what you’re going to do with your collection of tank tops when fall comes around, but what if we told you that you didn’t have to make any changes to your wardrobe? Tank tops for women are one of the most versatile clothing items that you can invest in; they guarantee you a look for all seasons.

If you haven’t experimented with the different ways you can wear your tank top, we have you covered. We believe women’s tank tops can be used as a layering shirt for a variety of different styles that span across each season. Here are the best ways tank tops for women are worn year-round.

Spring Styles

During the spring, you’re going to experience the best of all four seasons. We are likely to experience some snow and rain showers throughout the early parts of spring, but toward the middle and end, we start to see warmer days. It’s best to layer your tank tops during this season because it gives you the option to shed some layers when it gets too hot. On the opposite side, you can stay layered up as much as you need when the weather is less than ideal. Popular spring combinations include tank tops layered under cardigans and sweaters.

Summer Looks

Tank tops for women can be used as standalone shirts when they are trying to beat the heat. Tank tops paired with denim jeans, shorts or skirts can help you stay cool while still allowing you to maintain both comfort and style.

Tank Tops in the Fall

Fall styles that include tank tops for women are similar to those worn in the spring, but there are some differences. During the fall, you can expect colder days and prominent rain showers. Tank tops can be layered under sweatshirts and cardigans like in the spring. They also can be layered under long-sleeve turtlenecks and thicker coats to help you stay warm are those particularly chilly nights.

Winter Wardrobe

You’re going to be doing a lot of layering during the winter, and there are tank tops for women that you can use! You’ll most likely be layering your tank under your long sleeve shirts and jackets. Tank tops provide you with that much-needed extra layer of clothing that will keep you warm and comfortable as the snow falls.

If you’re looking to add some new tank tops to your wardrobe, make sure to check out the options we give you on our website, today!

What Makes a Good Tank Top?

22 Jul 2019

Tank tops for women are an essential part of any woman’s summer wardrobe, but not all tank tops are the same. You should not settle for a tank that makes you feel uncomfortable and less confident. When purchasing a tank top, you want to be sure you choose a good one, but what makes a good tank top?

At Heirloom, our standpoint is that clothing should be high-quality, and no matter the item, they should be designed properly and fit comfortably. Here is what women’s tank tops should offer you.

Comfortability

There’s nothing worse than wearing clothes that make you wish that you could just get home and change into your nightwear. When looking for a good tank top, you want to make sure that you make comfort a priority. If you can’t go throughout the day without feeling uncomfortable in your new tank top, you’ve probably invested in the wrong top. The best tank tops for women will have a soft-stretch fabric and tag-less design to ensure max comfort.

Design

As you continue to look for good tank tops, another aspect to pay attention to is the design. One flaw in the design could end up ruining the overall comfort of the top. Tank tops for women should provide the wearer with a slim feminine fit; a fit that allows you to stretch, bend and lean with ease. A soft-stretch fabric, mentioned earlier, will also help hold the wearer in without binding them. With a design like this, you won’t find a better tank top.

Proportions and Sizing

There are undoubtedly some tank tops for women out there that come in weird sizes that just don’t seem to make any sense. However, we offer our customers a sizing chart to help them find the right tank top. There are things such as the extra coverage that our smooth neckline and long-length provide that women should be aware of as they try to find the right fit. Additionally, sizing up or sizing down is something to consider based on how you are looking to use your tank top.  Doing these things should help you find the best fitting tank top.

These three things are the most important things to look for when you’re searching for a good tank top. If you’re ready to invest in quality clothing this summer, make sure to check out our selection of tops on our website.

Choosing the Right Shirt for the Right Occasion

22 Jul 2019

Considering tops for women (and men) are typically the main focus of an outfit, you want to be sure you pick the right one, but how can you know what’s right when there are so many tops for women to choose from? In your own closet, there may be times when you feel there are almost too many different options. Below, we have some great tips that will leave you prepared no matter the event you are attending.

French Style Tips

Ines de la Fressange, a French fashion icon, recommends always dressing a tad bit down for the occasion. When you dress down a bit, it makes it appear as if you are not trying too hard to impress others. Doing so will likely leave you with a balanced look. The late Coco Chanel gave similar advice: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” This tip was Chanel's way of making sure she wouldn't over-accessorize.

Now, these tips depend entirely on your personal style, but they are a sure way to avoid overdressing. While there are plenty of tops for women to choose from when deciding what to wear at your next event, it might be best to simply consider what makes you most comfortable. In other words, if you feel more comfortable dressed up, ignore these French-style tips and wear what you want to wear!

Make Your Outfit Interchangeable

An excellent way to make sure that you are dressed appropriately for any event is to haul interchangeable accessories in your purse or car. If you aren’t sure how to dress for a specific event, there are pieces you can bring that can instantly dress an outfit up or down. For example, a black shirt and dark jeans can be dressed up or down in so many different ways. If you are going to a professional meeting, you can wear it with a plaid blazer, black heels, and your favorite professional jewelry. If you are going on a casual date you can add a colorful leather jacket, white sneakers, and your favorite earrings.

For occasions when you do not know what to wear, these types of outfits are perfect because they are interchangeable. If you start walking into a wedding reception and realize it is a lot dressier than you thought, you can add some classy earrings, an elegant necklace, or fancy purse and you will instantly look more fitting for the occasion.

Out of all of the dresses, skirts, coats and tops for women, wardrobe staples are oftentimes the most important. If you have a good number of essential tops and fitting accessory pieces, you should have what you need to dress appropriately for any event.

The Difference Between a Tank Top and a Camisole Shirt

22 Jul 2019

The weather is heating up, so that means it is time to break out all of your tank tops and camisole shirts. If you are wondering what the difference between a tank top and camisole shirt is, we are here to help you recognize the difference and decide which top is best for you and you!

camisole shirt

Basic Tank Top

When it comes to wearing something light for layering or as an individual piece, a basic tank top is a great option. With its smooth neckline, it offers extra coverage without being too high. It has a slim feminine fit that is going to hold you in but won’t bind you. This is perfect if you are going to be on the go all summer long. Our tank top will work wonderfully if you are looking to even a farmers tan, or if you are planning to use it underneath a sheer top or jacket.

Basic Camisole Shirt

Like our tanks, our camisole shirts can also be worn by themselves or used to layer for extra coverage. They typically come with all the same features as our tank top but are lighter around the shoulders. With thinner straps than tanks, camis work well when you are looking for something that has less material or needs to be covered easily. Ultimately though, how you wear your cami comes down to your own personal preference!

At the end of the day, our tank tops and camisole shirts do not differ that much from each other. The main difference is the size of the strap. Our tank top straps are a couple of inches in width, while the straps on our camisole shirt are about a half-inch. Once you figure out which strap size you prefer, you are set! You do not have to sacrifice style or functionality by choosing one from another. If you are still unsure, try getting both to see which one you like best!

Even though the straps are different, they both come with features you will not want to live without. Their extra length provides adequate coverage so you don’t have to worry about anything hanging out while you are at your summer barbecue or on your favorite summer hike.

No matter what you are doing this summer, tank tops and camisole shirts should be found in your summer wardrobe! Trust us on this, you will not be disappointed!

Our Favorite Long Sleeve Colors in the Summer

10 Jul 2019

Finding the right color long sleeve shirt depends on the time of year and the style you are seeking to display. These two different factors really dictate what we consider to be our favorite long sleeve shirt colors. Considering it’s the middle of the summer and styles are trending away from layers, our favorite colors fall on lighter and brighter tones — ask us what our favorite color is during the winter season and you might hear something different!

A long sleeve shirt is usually worn at night or when there might be a rare summer chill, but that’s not the only time you can throw one on. There really are a lot of different circumstances in which you can wear a long sleeve shirt during the summer, but we are here to tell you the best summer color options for your long sleeve!

LIGHT-TONED LONG SLEEVES

With the summer heat, women typically wear their long sleeve shirts as a standalone, and that being the case, lighter colors will look and feel the best! Unlike black, navy and other darker colors, light blue, cream, olive and other lighter tones can handle the suns heat. For that reason, we feel comfortable wearing lighter tones!

WHITE LONG SLEEVES

While white is also a light tone, it encapsulates its own category. However, just like the other light-toned long sleeves, it doesn’t matter if it’s 50 degrees or 100 degrees, a white long sleeve shirt can be worn on both days! Now, if you know you are going to be outside all day, we wouldn’t recommend it (nor would we recommend any long sleeve), but if you have a formal event taking place inside for a couple of hours, you have nothing to worry about! Combine your white long sleeve with a long black, navy, olive or dark red skirt, and then accessorize the outfit with a necklace, bracelet and other accessories!

BRIGHT LONG SLEEVES

Brighter colors like red, yellow, pink and so forth are definitely more light than dark, but these options might be a little warmer than the other light-toned long sleeves, nevertheless, they are still great options! When it comes to colors, we tend to match temperatures, and brighter colors go well with the warm weather.

Our favorite colors will continue to shift as fall and winter rolls around, but for the time being, these lighter and brighter colors are our go-to colors for long sleeve shirts in the summer.

Our Favorite Tank Top Colors for Summer

10 Jul 2019

As summer rolls around, it’s important to know how to properly dress to both beat the heat and dress for the season in terms of style. Even if you’re trying to stay cool in the extreme temperatures that summer brings, you can still manage to dress comfortably and fashionably — there’s no need to throw style out the window.

The best way to keep cool and still stay on top of the current trends is by looking into the women’s tank tops that we offer here at Heirloom. Tank tops for women should be breathable, fashionable and provide coverage, and that’s what our tanks offer! Our tanks give you the look and comfort you want in the summer. However, the color you decide to go with will achieve different looks! Here are some of our favorite colors when it comes to tank tops.

Tango Red

Red may sound like a color you would only see on either Valentine’s Day or Christmas, but it is a vibrant color that just screams summer! The bright and fun color brings a sense of excitement and energy to your outfit. Pairing a red tank top with a pair of black or denim jeans, skirt or shorts is the best way to put together the perfect summer outfit.

Yellow Aspen Gold

Another bright color that encompasses the true feel of summer is yellow! People feel that yellow is a natural mood booster, and while the color is vibrant, it also looks great with denim jeans. Our yellow aspen gold tank top is the best shade of yellow you can get, helping your outfit stand out.

Blue Turquoise

Turquoise is another great summer color, and if you’re looking for a cooler alternative to wearing yellow and red, you can’t go wrong with this color. Tank tops for women in the summer usually come in brighter colors (as mentioned above), but cooler colors like blue can balance out those bright colors. There is nothing wrong will wearing a cooler color to the gym or under a jacket layered on top.

White

Being a color that can keep you cooler throughout the day, white is a classic summer color. Naturally, white is the polar opposite of black and acts differently entirely. White tank tops go great with virtually any color bottoms, so you don’t have to worry too much about matching.

When it comes to tank tops for women in the summer, they are must-have options in any wardrobe. By knowing and finding the right tank top color will help you stay on top of the summer fashion trends and stay cool. Check out our selection of women’s tank tops to find your next best summer color!

Tanks as Layering Shirts

Tank tops make great layering shirts! They can be layered under button-ups, flannels, and even chambrays.

All you have to do is layer the tank top under a blazer or cardigan and you’ll see how your basic tank turns into something chic and professional. You should also opt to tuck in the tank top into your bottoms — usually, slacks or a skirt will give you the professional look you are looking for.

There are a lot of different types of tank tops for women and these are just three simple ways to utilize ours. With the unrivaled quality and comfort that our shirts offer, our tanks are great for these three specific situations. If you searching for tank tops for women, check our selection today.

Three Ways to Wear a Long Sleeve Shirt

10 Jul 2019

While they may not be the most popular shirt option, long sleeve shirts give wearers a variety of uses. Whether it be for cold days or warm days, long sleeves work in all kinds of situations. Here are three ways in which you can wear long sleeve shirts!

Cover-Up Long Sleeve

Using your long sleeve as a cover-up shirt may not be the first thought, but maybe it should be! A lot of the time, when we get chilled, our first move is to throw something over what we already have on. A long sleeve shirt is a great option for cooler evenings when the sun is waning or when cool air is blowing non-stop from the AC. In addition, you can also use your long sleeve as a cover-up shirt when you are sunbathing. Even with the strongest sunscreen products, our skin can’t handle the sun for too long. A light long sleeve can give your shoulders and arms the cover they need.

When using a cover shirt, long sleeves should be bigger and loose-fitting (consider going up a size for this use), that way they lay over your body cozily like a blanket. After using a long sleeve as a cover-up on a warmer day, you can always wrap the sleeves around your waist and stay on the move! If you need to cover your arms or just want more layers, long sleeve shirts will comfortably get the job done.

Standalone Long Sleeve

Perhaps the most common use of long sleeves is the regular standalone option. You may consider this on a day that isn’t necessarily hot or cold but in between. That may be the condition in which you consider a long sleeve the most, but it is not the only time. Long sleeve shirts also work well on days when you want to wear short-shorts around the house and curl up on the couch to read a good book or watch your favorite TV series. Further, you may start noticing more and more women wearing these shirts over their sports bras on their way to and from the gym. There really isn’t too many instances in which you can’t wear a long sleeve shirt on its own.

Layering Long Sleeve

The third way to wear your long sleeve is as a layering shirt. Most people already associate long sleeves as a winter option, but you really wouldn’t do well in the winter with just a long sleeve! Long sleeves are often layered underneath other articles of clothing, especially during the winter. Now, you can layer your long sleeve under a jacket or vest during any season, especially if you are expecting to shed whatever you have on top. Take a moment and think about all the different times and things you might be able to layer a long sleeve with.

These are the top three most common ways in which we’d suggest wearing a long sleeve shirt. Within these three ways are multiple instances and options; be sure you know what styles and sizes work for you when wearing a long sleeve shirt. For more help, see our other blogs about long sleeve shirts!

One of the most common ways women wear camisole shirts is with a layer on top. Some of our favorite layering options are a jean jacket, leather jacket or a chic cardigan! There are so many different layering options; the number of different outfits is essentially endless. We make our camisole shirts out of material that is not going to bunch or be bulky, making them perfect to wear under other layers. They are not going to make you overly hot or self-conscious about the material riding up or giving you unneeded lumps.

Wear Underneath Your Clothes

Another option is to use your cami as a shirt under other clothes that might be see-through or more revealing than you may like. Our camisole shirts have a high, but not too high neckline making sure you are comfortable and confident throughout your day. From the selection of our camisoles, you will find multiple colors, giving you options for whatever your needs may be.

No matter how you choose to wear your camisole shirt, we know our camisole can work with just about any outfit you pick.

Long Sleeve Shirt Fitting Guidance

01 Jul 2019

Every piece of clothing differs from one clothing company to the next, especially with long sleeve shirts. Depending on the manufacturer, you with have top seams lay differently on top of your shoulders, the cuffs fitting tighter or looser around your arms, the hems falling short or stretching down further, and the inside seams wrapping snug around your sides or hanging detached from your body. No matter how the piece of clothing is created, the best fit really comes down to what your preference is, and with long sleeve shirts, how you want to wear them is ultimately going to dictate what fit you go for!

Measurements

Even though every company has a different manufacturer and the sizes usually differ, the differences aren’t always super drastic. In fact, fitting principles can still apply from one company’s clothing to another. That’s why the principles of our fit guide can help you! Before discussing the fit of long sleeve shirts, here is a short summary of finding your measurements.

Measuring Your Chest:

  • Place your arms at your side (Note: this is NOT the same as your bra size)
  • Measure under your arms and around the fullest part of your chest
  • Keep the tape measure relaxed

Measuring Your Waist:

  • Measure around your natural waistline
  • Keep the tape measure relaxed

Measuring Your Hips:

  • Stand with your feet together
  • The tape measure should touch your hip bones

Knowing your measurements will be a big help in finding the right size for the clothes you are thinking of buying. A lot of the times, you can find out the measurements of small, medium, large and more sizes from quality companies to find the closest fit for you, but again, it’s up to your preference.

For our Scoop Neck Long Sleeve Shirts, we have the following measurements and sizes:

Find Your Preference

When it comes to the fit of long sleeve shirts, it often comes down to your preference and purpose in wearing one. Usually, the purposes include wearing them as a cover shirt, standalone shirt or layering shirt. Depending on the purpose, long sleeves can fit loosely or tightly. As a cover shirt, the more they hang over the clothes underneath, the better. Oppositely, as a layering shirt, the tighter the fit, the more comfortable it’ll be supporting whatever you have on top! Long sleeves worn as standalone shirts can have a normal fit but they can also be worn tight for a sleek and more formal look or loosely for a more casual and comfortable feel.

Whether you go with a tight or loose fit, they both work great! If you want a looser fit, you may consider going up a size, and for a tighter fit, try going down a size — there is nothing wrong with this! Some women love the cozy look and feel of a long sleeve hanging down from their shoulders and the sleeves casually extending past their hands. At the same time, others like the feeling of the sleeves fitting snuggly around their arms and waist.

Whatever look and fit you are going for, knowing your measurements, preference and purpose is going to help you the most. For our selection of long sleeve shirts and to see the measurements our sizes, take a look at our essential line! Our shirts are made with fine materials and our measurements should match most others. Take a look for yourself!

Tank Top Fit Guide

01 Jul 2019

We recently covered how to choose the right camisole for you by using our camisole fit guide, but we know that different women are looking for different layering shirt styles. With the arrival of summer, we thought it would be beneficial to cover how tank tops for women should fit and how you can find the perfect one for you. Every company has different measurements and sizes and that’s why we provide a fit guide for each of our essential shirts here is the official Heirloom fit guide covering tank tops for women.

First Things First

The first thing you’re going to want to do before choosing your next tank top is to measure before your body. We’ve covered this before but if you haven’t seen this, here is a good summary.

Measuring Your Chest:

    • Place your arms at your side (Note: this is NOT the same as your bra size).
    • Measure under your arms and around the fullest part of your chest.
    • Keep the tape measure relaxed.

Measuring Your Waist:

    • Measure around your natural waistline.
    • Keep the tape measure relaxed.

Measuring Your Hips:

    • Stand with your feet together.
    • The tape measure should touch your hip bones.

The Guide for Tank Tops

Tank tops for women usually offer a slim fit but ours also offer soft-stretch fabric that doesn’t bind, a long length that covers low cut pants and a smooth neckline for extra coverage. To really take advantage of all these benefits, you’re going to want to make sure that you don’t just guess your size, rather really investigate on which size is going to fit your body type the best. Here are the official measurements for women’s tank tops.

Our tanks range from S to XL sizes, and it’s up to your measurements — as well as  your personal preference — that will decide what size is going to be best for you. For example, if you’re looking to use your tank top as a layering shirt, you may want to go with a snugger fit, meaning you’re going to want to match your measurements as accurately as possible or even size down. If you want to use your tank top as a standalone shirt, match your measurements to the Fit Guide or even consider sizing up from your current size for a more relaxed fit.

Our products are made by women, for women, and if you’re looking for quality tank tops for women, look no further than Heirloom Clothing.

Wearing the Right Shirt for the Right Occasion

01 Jul 2019

With so many tops for women to choose from, it can be difficult to know what to get! Everyone knows that feeling where you look in your closet and have no idea what to wear. It can be easy to feel like you have no clothes even when you see a full closet. At Heirloom, we are determined to help women overcome these types of fashion slumps. 

What’s Your Occasion? 

It is very useful to think about where you spend most of your time. Do you spend most of your time at work, home or school? Pick the top three occasions you spend your time before shopping. Once you are aware of where you spend the majority of your time, it becomes easier to determine what you want for those events. If you spend a lot of time at work, depending on your office’s dress code, you may want to be more dressed up. If you need an outfit for all occasion, we recommend buying basics that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. There are various tops for women that can be dressed up or down depending on the accessories chosen. 

Accessories

When it comes to tops for women, accessories are the key to making any outfit right for the occasion. For example, any black t-shirt can be dressed up. If you wear your black shirt with a striped pencil shirt and diamond earrings, it automatically looks right for a dressier occasion. If you are looking to be more dressed up, a sheath dress is another example of something that can be dressed up a lot or dressed down for more casual situations.

Overdress or Underdress

It is always more respectful to be overdressed for an occasion, but being underdressed for an occasion is also sometimes fine! If you aren’t sure what is appropriate for your next event, then wear something that can be dressed up or down. Then if you feel uncomfortable you can always remove or add accessories. For example, if you feel overdressed at a casual wedding, you can slip off your diamond earrings and put them into your bag.

The most important thing to remember is to rock the outfits you choose with confidence. Confidence is what ties any good outfit together. There are lots of tops for women to choose from but at the end of the day, each top can be mixed and matched for a perfect combination. For a great selection of basic tops, check out our line of essential tops today!

Tailoring and Finding the Right Fit

20 Jun 2019

There are a lot of different tips and tricks for finding the right fit, and we recently wrote another blog about all the tops for women to choose from and how to find the right fit. Whether it’s a basic t-shirt, camisole, tank, cap sleeve, ½ sleeve, quarter sleeve or long sleeve, the shirts fit differently. This is why we have fit tips on each individual product page to assist you. For example, our cap sleeve shirts are designed with the snuggest fit; the purpose of this design is so that the shirt is perfect for layering. For additional tips, keep reading.

Fitting Tips for All Clothing 

Finding the right fit can seem impossible in the age of online shopping because items sometimes arrive in different sizes than you initially anticipated. However, you can know what to expect with the clothing that is ordered through our website. When you find the right fit, it adds so much more value to your purchases. Clothing that fits correctly takes us back to the times of designers like Christian Dior who began as an in-house designer, tailoring his clothing to perfectly fit each individual. What is the purpose of clothing if it is not fitting comfortably? This is why we have a fit guide.

How Do I Know if My Clothes Fit Right? 

To know if your clothes fit properly, you will want to ask yourself, are you comfortable in your clothing? If your clothing restricts your movement, it may not be the right fit for you. For example, if you can’t raise your arms in your blazer, it may be time to visit a tailor or buy a new one. If you feel that you can never find the right size for you, then buy the size that feels a little too big and then take it to a tailor. There are certain fashion bloggers and experts who buy all of their jeans for 15 dollars at less expensive stores then take them to be tailored to their bodies.  This method gives the buyer a cheaper cost but requires a lot of work. Although typical tops for women don’t need to be tailored, we recommend it for other unique situations.

There are other signs that your clothes aren’t fitting. If you see any of the following below, then you might have a fitting issue:   

  • Buttons come undone
  • Clothing bunches up 
  • Your inner seam is higher than your outer seam
  • Clothing rides up when you sit or stand up
  • You always need a belt

Taking pieces you have already bought that are too big to the tailor is a great way to transform clothing that you once loved. We recommend doing this for the clothing that doesn’t fit right. Another option if your clothing rides up or bothers you is to throw on one of our layering shirts under your clothing. This will help you be more comfortable because you will know that you are covered! 

Whether you are looking to upgrade your closet with new pieces or modify those you already own, it all comes back to how the clothes fit. At Heirloom, we want you to feel and look your best. While a lot of the tops for women come in all kinds of sizes, ours are resilient and can fit all kinds of body types. Taking your clothes to a tailor can be a lot of work, so when you go to buy a new shirt, be sure to find one that fits the way you want it!

Why You Need a Long Sleeve Undershirt

20 Jun 2019

During the winter season, there is no end to why a long sleeve shirt used as an undershirt is a good idea but using one for the summer is entirely different. A long sleeve shirt layered under other tops in freezing weather is a no brainer, but doing so in the heat might be too much. However, the sole purpose of using a long sleeve undershirt in the summer should not be for keeping someone warm, rather a variety of other reasons for different circumstances.

Exercising with Long Sleeves

Sounds ridiculous, right? Well, hear this out. When anyone goes to workout, the purpose is to burn calories and get in better shape, and a long sleeve shirt helps fulfill that purpose. You may have seen a few people wearing hoodies or sweats to a gym and thought they are crazy, but in reality, they are simply trying to speed up their calorie burning process. Using a comfortable long sleeve shirt under an exercise top is a good idea for those who are really looking to burn a lot of calories. Now, if you try this, be sure to stay hydrated (especially if you are working out outside) as it will be easier to overheat.

Traveling

Whether it is a long road trip or a long flight, a long sleeve shirt should always be an option. In both situations, air conditioning is going to be cranked up on high and it will likely get a little chilly. More often than a road trip, flight cabins are notoriously cold for multiple reasons. While airlines offer in-flight blankets, having a jacket with a long sleeve underneath might be more comfortable.

Too Much Sun

Okay, the use of a long sleeve here may not necessarily be as an undershirt, but there is another use for long sleeve undershirts that people may not initially think of during the summer. If you have sensitive or light skin, you may want to consider using a long sleeve to protect your skin from too much sun. In this case, your long sleeve shirt would be used as an over-shirt or coverup used when you go swimming, hiking or gardening for half of the day. Each of these activities involves you staying under the sun for long hours, and sometimes sunscreen just doesn’t cut it. After an hour or two, it is wise to throw on a long sleeve and endure the heat! While the long sleeve would likely be worn over whatever you have on in these situations, a long sleeve shirt, ones that are usually used as an undershirt, will still work great!

The ideas above may be unique, but they are not unconventional. Your long sleeve undershirts can be used for a wide variety of purposes outside of warming yourself up throughout cold winters. If you are in need of a few more long sleeve shirts, check out the selection we offer you, today!

Accessories and Clothing to Wear With a Camisole Shirt

20 Jun 2019

The accessory and clothing options you can wear with a camisole shirt are endless. At Heirloom, we want to share these endless possibilities with you. Below are accessories and clothing options for you that you can wear with one of our amazing camisole shirts.

Necklaces

Whether they be big or small, a necklace is a great accessory to camisole shirts. Its smooth neckline offers extra coverage, making it the perfect canvas for your favorite necklace. Choose from a group of dainty necklaces or a larger and more intricate necklace to top off your outfit.

Cardigans

Cardigans are a wonderful addition during any season. In the summer you can pair your favorite camisole shirt with a light cardigan to keep the sun off of you or to warm on those cool nights. On the flip side, our camisoles make the perfect base layer for a more hefty cardigan that will keep you warm in the middle of winter. Either way, cardigans pair perfectly with our camisole shirts.

Scarfs

If you think you can only wear scarfs in the winter, think again. One of our favorite summer accessories this summer is a silk scarf. They add a pop of color or pattern to any outfit. If you are trying to spice up your outfit, try pairing your camisole shirt with a fun silk scarf to spice up your outfit!

Patterned Pants

If you are looking for ways to change up your outfit, you came to the right place. Patterned pants can add a whole new dimension to your look. If you are one to wear more basic shirts, try wearing pants with a fun pattern to switch things up a little.

Jean Jackets

Jean jackets are a must-have option for every wardrobe, and a camisole shirt is a perfect complementary piece. When you pair a camisole shirt under your favorite jean jacket, it is not only nice for how light it is, but it also gives your outfit the additional color it needs!

A Sheer Top

Wearing a sheer shirt is always fun, and a camisole underneath is all the coverage you need. A cami used under a sheer shirt is slimming; there is usually no extra bulk added to the sheer shirt with a camisole. We know you’ll love wearing your sheer shirt with one of our camisoles!

There are so many different ways to wear our camisole shirts and so many different accessories you can pair them with. Make sure your summer wardrobe complete with a handful of different camisoles!

Fit Guide — How Do I Find the Right Size Shirt?

20 Jun 2019

Finding an essential top that fits exactly how you want is extremely important. When someone finds the perfect size, they usually feel more confident and comfortable, something we all want with our clothes. While there is a wide variety of tops for women to choose from, we have a step by step guide that will help you find your right size. 

Finding Your Measurements 

The first thing we would recommend is finding your measurements, that way you can compare sizes based on your actual measurements. This is essential because no two women are the same, and all the tops that are made for women are going to fit differently on each of us. When you start measuring, you will want to wear the underwear you would when you wear the clothes you want to buy. To make proper measurements, follow the instructions below:

Chest Measurements

  • Place your arms at your side
  • Measure under arms, around the fullest part of your chest

Waist Measurements (the slimmest part of the waist)

  • Measure around your natural waistline
  • Keep the tape relaxed — don’t pull tight

Hip Measurements

  • Stand with feet together
  • Tape should touch both hipbones

Consult the sizing chart to decide which size would suit you the best. Not all women have an hourglass body shape and it is up to you to size up or down to compensate for the difference. It’s also a good idea to ask yourself, how do I want to wear my shirt? Although tops for women are usually designed to fit hourglass measurements, you can still decide which fit is best for you. For example, if you have a 34-27-38 you may want to size up from a small to a medium, that way the shirt won’t fit too tightly around your hips. All the tops for women are going to differ, but you should be able to apply the same principles to just about any fitting situation.

 

 

Considering Your Preferences

It’s good to have an opinion on how to wear your clothes, but if you don’t already have a preference, it will help to consider the following ideas.

  • If you prefer a little tightness on the hips, then keep to a smaller size.   
  • If you are looking to wear your top as an undershirt, we recommend sticking to the size chart.
  • If you are looking to wear your cap sleeve as a stand-alone shirt, consider the next size up.

These are just a few examples, but there are other considerations that you can make. In the end, your preference is really up to you — only you know what fits you best and what you feel the most comfortable in. If you are coming back around to finding what you are most comfortable in, remember these principles and you should be fine!

There are a lot of options when it comes to essential tops for women, but be sure to check out our selection. We are confident you’ll like what you find!

Long Sleeve Shirts in the Summer?

13 Jun 2019

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

13 Jun 2019

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. So, if you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe, make sure to check out the selection of sleeveless tops available on our website. You won’t find better essential tops anywhere else.
