SOS: Winter tops with long sleeves that go day to night

Clothes

Our latest SOS is very season appropriate…

We were asked on Facebook to track down some tops for winter that can go from day to night, are classic, flattering and slimming, loose around the waist and can be worn with skinny pants and jeans – with a preference for long sleeves.

Although some of the tops in our recent post for Speech Therapists could be suitable, we’ve put together a more comprehensive and specific shopping list here.

We’re big fans of button down shirts, oversized knits and long sleeve tees for winter, all of which can be worn on their own, or with a camisole underneath for extra warmth – then all you need to do is add your favourite winter coat! We’ve also included a few short sleeve options in the mix, just in case you feel like dancing…

Hope you find something you love!

NOVELTY KNITS

These are the coolest way to keep warm in winter – they’re playful, sexy and can be worn with a pair of skinny jeans and heels for instant street cred…

MORE CUTE KNITS

An oversized jumper is everyone’s best friend in winter – all you need is a pair of leggings and you’re set. And if you don’t have a grandma who can knit you one, then we’ve found the next best thing here…

LIGHT-WEIGHT KNITS

Depending on how cold it is, you can often get away with just wearing a light-weight knit as a top, with nothing else underneath. It’s a comfortable way to keep the chill out without needing lots of layers.

EVENING PEPLUMS

Black can always go from day to night, and a peplum silhouette can be very flattering if you get the right style for your shape. SEED HERITAGE garments are usually true to size, or slightly larger in fit, so you know you’ll have room to move.

SHORT SLEEVE TOPS

Dress tees or tops in slightly thicker fabrics are great for layering in winter, you can still throw a jacket and scarf on over the top, but you won’t overheat if you’re out for dinner, drinks or dancing.

LONG SLEEVE BASICS

Long sleeve tees in soft jersey fabrics will serve you well in winter. Keep the colours clean and simple – black, grey, white and accessorise with scarves, jewellery and shoes.

BUTTON DOWN SHIRTS

Collared shirts are THE most versatile, sharp-looking, must-have items in your winter wardrobe, bar nothing! Except maybe a leather jacket and pair of black skinny jeans. EVERY WOMAN should own a white shirt, a silk shirt and a statement shirt – it’s winter wardrobe 101!
