Leggings are fashionable all year round, but what can make or break your leggings look, is your choice of top. This summer you will find many long shirts to wear with leggings, and these are an excellent choice! Not only do long shirts cover your bottom, which is most flattering, but they also give your leggings outfit a more sophisticated look than just any old top.
- Shirts are more tailored and crisp looking than most tops, so they give your softer rounded body, particularly your shoulders and arms more definition.
- Whether it’s a button up or tunic shirt, shirts have V-necklines which make your neck and body look long, sleek, and sophisticated.
- Most shirts have collars which add sophistication, especially when you turn your collar up a touch. The collar frames your face and makes you look youthful and chic.
Here are five cute long shirts to wear with leggings that check all the right boxes.
The Classic White Shirt with Leggings
A long white shirt always looks smart with leggings, and in the summer you have more white shirt choices than ever. A little embellishment can make an average white shirt look awesome, so why not try something like this? This eyelet hem shirt worn with a pair of capris leggings looks fresh and cool.
This cute long shirt for leggings also has three-quarter length sleeves, which I think are the most flattering sleeves, especially at our age. They give you some upper arm coverage, but you still look sporty with and youthful with your forearms showing. Add a pair of sleek, pointy toe flats and a black tote, and you have a classy summer look.
Long Tunic Shirt with Leggings
Can you wear white leggings? Sure you can, when you pair it with something like this cute gingham tunic. The preppy pink checks on this long shirt for leggings give it a relaxed summertime feel. Just be sure that your white leggings aren’t too thin where they are showing every lump and bump.
Then, finish off your outfit with white canvas espadrilles and this beachy circle rope bag embellished with tiny seashells. This is a nice look when you are on vacation and don’t want to wear shorts.
Crisp Button Down Shirt
You can never go wrong with a striped shirt. This one above is a fantastic long shirt for leggings because black and white stripes look appropriate any time of year. This sophisticated looking button-down shirt is just what you need to uplevel a pair of casual black leggings. The cuffed elbow sleeves and deep V-neck collar are modern and very figure flattering. Black suede mules and a Chanel inspired gold chain bag make this look high-end.
Sleeveless long shirts for leggings keep you cool in summer and look very chic. I have worn this look a few times.
You can start with something like this shirt above – designed specifically to be worn with leggings and jeans, or find a shirtdress that you feel is too short to wear with bare legs ( lots of those around!) and wear it over top of your favorite leggings. This blue bi-colored squares tunic even has a few buttons up the sides that you can undo a touch for comfort and style.
What about Long T-shirts to Wear With Leggings?
You can wear a long T-shirt with leggings, but the look is less formal and not as sophisticated as when you wear a tailored shirt. However, sometimes you run across a t-shirt like the one above that has some detail that makes it appear more structured.
This rust colored cotton t-shirt for leggings has a strong, embellished V-design that tricks the eye into making the shoulders look broader, and the shirt looks more structured like a regular shirt.
Whatever shirt you choose to wear with your leggings this summer, feel confident that this is an Age-amazing look!
