5 Days, 5 Ways: How to Wear a Henley
The base layer that's beyond basic
I think we can all agree that winter is just about here. December just started, and I definitely rocked the hat, scarf and gloves combo yesterday. By February you’ll surely need more than just a sweater under your down coat. That’s where the long sleeve henley comes in. Like its short sleeve cousin, the long-sleeve henley is a style step up from your standard long sleeve tee. It’s an easy way to elevate any outfit that requires a tee, and the top buttons on a henley mirror those of your button up shirts, making it a great option under a formal jacket.
The long-sleeve henley can add style to a casual outfit without sacrificing comfort, but it can just as easily make a more formal look feel a bit more relaxed.
