THREE (MORE) WAYS TO WEAR A LONG, SLEEVELESS, SHEER, SHIRT

I featured this long, sleeveless, sheer, collared shirt (which is quite a mouthful so I’m going to refer to is as a LSSC from now on) in a 3 ways to wear last summer, but have found myself incorporating it into some of my winter outfits this season, so I thought it might be interesting to revisit it and show you three MORE ways to wear it.  In fact, I stumbled upon a couple of new ways I want to wear it once the weather has warmed up so I may share those later in the year…that is, of course, if you’re not sick to death of seeing it!

Anyway, back to the current season – you’re probably thinking an  LSSC an unsuitable garment for this time of year what with it being sheer and having no sleeves, but actually, both those elements make it a great piece for layering and laying is a must in winter!  The fact that it has no sleeves means that you can get that collared knitwear look without feeling restricted or uncomfortable thanks to bunched up sleeves, and the sheerness makes for less bulky layering which is more flattering.

For my first look, I’ve layered a strapless top under the shirt to create the illusion that the shirt has cut out-shoulders.  The cold-shoulder trend doesn’t look like it’s fading anytime soon so this was a simple way to update the look of this shirt.

As you can see my obsession for layering pieces in contrasting lengths is still going strong!  Normally I would layer a cropped sweater over this LSSC rather than something as long as this as (top tip) a cropped sweater will elongate my legs and draw the eye to my waist rather than my hips which are the widest part of my figure.  However, the color blocking in this sweater does such a brilliant job of breaking up my torso and highlighting my empire waist that it doesn’t shorten me at all.  Oh and if you’re thinking “I like it but surely a shirt with sleeves would be a far better choice this time of year” then I should probably tell you I’m also wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt underneath all of this, which I find a far more comfortable option that shirt sleeves.  This is one warm outfit that does not sacrifice on comfort, and that’s my kind of outfit!

So here you are, this is a great example of how a cropped top can elongate legs and highlight a waist.  This turtle neck has quite a bit of structure so it does a great job of giving the shapeless shirt a little shape but I can tell you that cropped boxy knitwear also looks great layered over this type of shirt!
