5 Days, 5 Ways: A Henley for Summer
A winter shirt for warm weather months
All of us on team SG have waxed poetic on our love of the henley in the comments at one time or another. Taylor, specifically, loves them in a real and meaningful way.
And with good reason! The henley has all the comfort of a tee with a little more maturity. The simple design feels just as at home on the set of Game of Thrones as it does on stage (or in the crowd) at an indie rock show. While you may think of the henley as your go-to base layer come winter, consider making it the standout of a summer lewk. Opt for a lightweight cotton style or something with a linen blend, and you’ll be in business.
