Sure, there might be a style or two in your offering, but if you're looking for a fresh long-sleeve tee to add to your mix, you've landed in the right spot.

I also wanted to provide you with some fresh outfit ideas as well that could be worn with any of the long-sleeve tees in question (or really, any T-shirt in general). I'm talking about everything from comfy loungewear looks to directional layered vibes.

Black Tees

"Great layering tee! So soft and comfy. I have it in all three colors it comes in, only wish it came in more colors!" — Jahoh

"This is my favorite layering piece for A/W. The ribbing is nicely done and the colors are great (not to mention 100% COTTON). I have it in white, black, and yellow/gold." — HMreviewer


"This is right on trend and I love it. Thanks Eloquii for bringing us the most current and fashionable styles." — Sheiliea

"I've given plenty of brands a try when it comes to a basic, black, long-sleeve tee, and this is by the far the best! It's subtly ribbed with a great neckline (not too wide). It's also a great length! I'm 5'7, and it hits perfectly when wearing nearly all my mid and high-rise denim." — msnev

"I love the fit, style, and soft fabric of this simple top. It it a nice color as well." — Onthegolady

"I love this shirt—it's soft and comfortable, and excellent either layered or on its own. The fabric, though thin, feels warm and cozy as soon as you slide the tee over your head, yet would be fine for warmer weather as well. A wardrobe keeper!" — Emmi331

Style tip: Add a slouchy maxi coat to a T-shirt, jeans, and boots 'fit to bring the vibe to the next level.

White Tees

"Can't have enough of these tops. Holds up well and washes perfectly." — Robynleem

"Omg the top is super comfortable. My favorite top in my closet now. Feels so soft and light." — Sona


"I love this shirt! I have only worn it once so far, so I don't know if it is moisture wicking as the options for review are asking. It is very comfy and can be worn as is or with a layer over it." — Mdupre

"Love this shirt. You can dress it up or down. It is so comfortable. It fits true to size, but the sleeves are a bit long." — Toni27

"Excellent quality cotton—came out the package without extensive wrinkles! Boxy fit and slightly sheer, but does not need a cami in my opinion. I will likely get all the colors as its tough to get a basic top like this which isn't too long." — Rumia

"This shirt is bright and the material is soft. Fits well." — SLWNordies

Turtleneck Tees

"Love this bodysuit! It's a great basic for the season." — Nordychick1234

"Very soft and stands up to machine washing very well. I now have this in three different colors. Like them all." — Amazoncustomer

"This is a great turtleneck. Super comfortable and light weight feeling. Definitely a wardrobe staple." — Sammy

"This is the perfect turtleneck. The material is cozy but not heavy and the fit is relaxed and roomy. I get compliments every time I wear it. Now everyone wants one!" — LoriV

"I ordered this in 'pale dawn' and the photo doesn't do the colors justice. The two colors are more of a pale blue and an okra/mustard dusty color, but they actually look great together. I got my usual size small and it fits great. The neck part is nice and loose so it doesn't squeeze you. I'll be wearing it as a base layer under flannels and jumpers! For reference, I'm 5'4", 140 lbs, 30G." — Astronautkelly

Ribbed Tees and Henleys

"Love this V-neck long sleeve! Bought one in every color!" — HMreviewer

"I bought the black, gray and white. They exceeded my expectations, I love them. They are extremely soft and comfortable and have a really nice soft clingy fit. I also love the length. Perfect length that that will stretch down basically as long as you want, and when I raise my arms, it stays put. True to size. Love them so much I just ordered the ruby and one more spare black." — Mol4

"This is a great basic shirt and the material is so incredibly soft and comfortable." — Nicole

"Love this color! The fit is great—I love the length of this top also! A great fall basic!" — Kaileyg
