Now that fall has finally arrived, it's time to switch gears in the fashion department. We're swapping swimsuits for sweaters, flip-flops for booties and shorts for layers upon layers. But a classic piece you can always turn to when the temperature starts to drop has to be the long-sleeve tee. This style is the perfect transition piece and a necessity in anyone's closet — and we found one that might become your new seasonal staple.
The Vemvan Long-Sleeve T-shirt on Amazon could be the cozy go-to piece your wardrobe is missing. Made with a cotton and polyester blend, this lightweight top is perfect for layering and versatile enough to be worn for any occasion.
According to the brand, this casual tee is designed to feel incredibly soft and provide a ton of stretch. It comes in five different colors and is available in sizes ranging from S to XX-Large. And it's safe to say that Amazon shoppers love it, too — over 4,000 of them have given it a five-star rating.
We decided to have five women try it on for size and see if it lives up to the hype. Here's what each of our models thought of the shirt.
In the size Small, Christine Bottros loved how comfortable the top felt. She paired the blue shirt with medium wash jeans, knee-high camel-colored boots and a beige wide-brim felt hat.
“This shirt actually surprised me,” Bottros said. “It fits perfectly and it’s actually super soft.”
As someone who is sensitive to the chillier temperatures, Bottros also loved the warmth of the material.
“I do like that it’s tight around the wrist because I get really cold in winter,” Bottros explained. “So, this is nice, and then if you put anything on top of it, this is just warm all the way down.”
Modeling the size Medium, Elissa Desani found the T-shirt to be cozy, casual and true to size. She matched the brown shade with a long cream wrap skirt with a bow accent and beige Oxford heels.
“I think it fits perfect for a medium,” said Desani. “It’s not too big. The sleeves aren’t too snug.”
Desani also mentioned loving the versatility of the garment. For her, the T-shirt is perfect for any occasion, whether it be wearing it to work or a quick trip to the grocery store.
“It’s a good piece to have in your wardrobe, so you have options,” she said.
Our size Large model, Kourtney Edwards, chose to match her gray shirt with a pair of dark wash jeans, large silver hoops and brown ankle booties. She loved the shirt for its versatility and comfort.
“You can wear it with jeans,” Edwards said. “It also comes down to about your waist and it does a nice little dip if you want to wear it with leggings.”
While she agreed with the other models about the comfort of the shirt, she thought the sleeves weren’t quite long enough for her.
“The sleeves are a little bit shorter,” Edwards said. “So, they don’t come all the way down to right where your wrist is.”
Modeling the X-Large, DeAndra Hayes also loved the fit and comfort of the T-shirt, which she found to be true to size, breathable and soft. She matched the red option with a pair of black leggings, large white hoops and black wedge sneakers.
Unlike Edwards, she said the sleeves reached the right length. “It fits well,” Hayes said. “The sleeves are long. It’s long in the torso and it comes a little bit beneath the waist, which is what I like.”
Hayes also agreed with the others that the garment is versatile enough to be worn with anything.
“This shirt can be worn with a blazer,” she added. “It can be worn with shorts. It can be worn with a nice, comfortable skirt. I think that it’s just very comfortable and casual.”
Wearing the size XX-Large, Brittany Lewis was surprised by how well the piece fit. She decided to couple the black shirt with dark wash jeans, a silver statement necklace and black ballet flats.
“Initially, when I saw this shirt on the hanger, I didn’t think it was going to be flattering on me,” Lewis said. “But I actually like it a lot!”
Like the other models, Lewis found the material to be both soft and comfortable. She also loved how the shirt showed off her curves.
“Sometimes with plain T-shirts or shirts, they can either stretch out or they fall funny,” she explained. “But this one, I feel like it hugs me in the right places.”
