For any summertime outfit, adding long sleeves can be a good idea. The following guidelines will help you decide whether wearing long sleeves is worth the effort.
Your arms are often shaded by your shirt’s collar and need some extra cover-up, but it’s not always easy to find such coverage with just a short sleeved shirt.
Long sleeves provide more stability and offer greater protection from the suns harmful rays when worn under other clothes in hot weather or when out and about in inclement weather. Long sleeves also provide additional warmth when there are no layers of insulating clothing to add comfort during chilly summer nights. Regardless of the amount of laundry you may be doing this summer, keep this in mind and ensure you have at least one long sleeve shirt and several short sleeved shirts.
One of the most important aspects of wearing long sleeves is to choose the right kind of shirts. Opt for something other than a t-shirt. A long sleeve t-shirt will not provide you with that much coverage and is often too thin. A t-shirt will also not provide much insulation when worn under a heavy jacket in cold weather. When purchasing your long sleeve shirts keep an eye out for those that have warm knit cuffs or even ribbed cuffs. These features make the overall fit more comfortable without sacrificing any coverage or warmth.
When wearing long sleeves, no matter the season, make sure that your choice of shirt or a dress is not too tight. If you have a loose fitting shirt/dress, then you automatically gonna feel uncomfortable and relaxed.
If it is summertime and the temperature rises above 85 degrees Fahrenheit mark, then you may want to wear a light colored long sleeve shirt instead of the traditional white or pale blue color that many people choose. This will help protect you from sunburns which can be as dangerous as UV rays from the sun itself. Darker colored shirts make you look thinner than you really are and will help to cover up some of the extra fat that you may have.
Your long sleeve dress should be hemmed at least two inches longer than your actual arm length so that any exposed area can be protected from sun damage. In colder weather, long sleeve shirts will provide extra warmth without restricting your movement or temperature regulation.
Long sleeve shirts are more effective than short sleeve shirts in the summer months. They are perfect for any situation, especially during the hottest part of summer. The long sleeves give a feeling of coolness. You’ll simply feel cooler wearing them and it gets even better when other people notice how great these sleeves look on you.
Long sleeves don’t necessarily mean that you have to stick with black in color. You can wear different colors, but keep a certain tone in mind that you wouldn’t mind keeping during other months of the year as well. I always say that black can go with everything and that’s certainly true in the case of long sleeves. It creates a great contrast to your clothing because of its darkness and it’s also different from what you’d expect from summer clothing, since most people opt for colors such as white or yellow. Of course, those colors may be great for other situations, but you could also wear black long sleeve and still be wearing something light and refreshing during the hottest season of the year. You’ll feel like you’re on vacation most of the time, no matter where you go during a day. I suggest that you wear long sleeve shirts throughout the summer. They’re perfect for any situation or weather conditions, but even more so during this time of the year.
