Long Sleeves

The colder weather approaching doesn't mean that you have to layer on a hoodie or skip your tee and leggings ensembles altogether. Simply grab a long-sleeved version of a classic crewneck and your ready to transition your updated loungewear into the fall and winter months. Tuck in the shirt to become the most chic version of your comfortable self.          

Classic Fitted

There's just no denying how much more polished a classic plain fitted crewneck tee looks with leggings when compared to the once-cool pairing of a soft, loose vintage graphic tee. Fitted tees offer a snug, slightly more structured fit and they tend to come in purer, less muddled colors, too. 


Swapping out your vintage tee doesn't mean that you can't go cropped. A cropped version of a classic crewneck tee offers all the added sophistication and class — just with an extra side of sass. Classic fashion is sometime pegged as boring or even matronly, but that absolutely does not have to be the case. 


Vintage tees are loved for their softer, more forgiving feel. Unfortunately, this same trait can cause a sloppy, billowy effect when you attempt to rock an oversized vintage tee — especially with leggings. Try an oversized classic crewneck tee instead. You'll still feel comfy and covered, but without the messy vibe.
