These Long Sleeve Tops Are Far From Boring Winter Staples

Elevate your winter looks.

Like a classic white tee or basic tank in summer, the long sleeve top is the seasonal staple that forms the bases of our winter wardrobes.

Unlike its warm-weather counterparts, however, the long sleeve top can take on far more intricate designs and stylish renditions.

This season, the stranglehold of the Y2K resurgence is seeing asymmetric hemlines make a welcome return allowing us to play with proportions and shapes.

Sheer dressing, seeing all over international and local runways, brought about a rise in mesh fabric and ultra lightweight knits worn over bralettes or under slip dresses.

If sheer styles aren’t for you, cold-shoulders and cut-outs make showing some winter skin without baring it all, more achievable.
