    1 Piece, 3 Ways: Short Sleeve Henley

    31st July 2013

    The henley is a game changer.

    It’s more than a tee, and it just feels rugged and worldly. It could be because I have literally never seen a Hemsworth not wearing a henley, so in my mind it’s an Australian thing. Australians = rugged

    Both of them. Always.

    While the long sleeve henley is a tried and true staple, it’s not quite weather appropriate right now. Sooo, why not try out the short sleeve look? It’s still got the most important part of the shirt (the buttons) and it’s just as versatile as the long sleeve version.

    So, now that you desperately want to rock this hot piece of cloth, here’s a few ways you can style it:

    Henley: Collective, $92; Jacket: United Colors of Bennetton, $123; Pants: United Colors of Bennetton, $111; Shoes: Allen Edmonds, $230; Belt: Columbia, $28

    In honor of this week’s OOTW, why not try it with a suit? To me, this look says movie premiere OR hella cool boss. It’s alternative dressy, and probably goes well with an air of quiet confidence.

    Paparazzi? No Problem.

    Pants: Saturdays, $96; Shirt: Old Navy, $15; Shoes: SeaVees, $98

    Why not wear a bunch of basics that are slightly enhanced? Upgrade to colored chinos, clean up your sneaks, and switch out the regular tee for a henley. It’s basically the recipe for how to look good without really trying anything new or unusual.

    For us regular folk, this is the perfect outfit to wear running errands as not to get embarrassed when you run into literally everyone you know.

    Jeans: Uniqlo, $50; Henley: Gap, $22; Vest: River Island, $42; Shoes: Cole Haan, $140

    The vest + henley duo says I’m interesting without being obnoxious. You probably lived in another country for long enough to be mistaken as a local, and were definitely in a band.  Or you’re a silver screen hottie.

    Don’t forget us when you become an international sex symbol! Well, at least don’t forget the henley.
