The average going-out wardrobe is filled with halters, tube tops, and spaghetti strap-adorned crops. We love a sparsely strapped blouse—almost as much as we love a happening dance floor. But once the temperatures start to drop, not even a handy-dandy alcohol blanket can keep us warm in the cool nighttime weather. We need outfits that can take us from the frigid outdoors to the sweat-filled indoors. We need shirts that’ll keep us warm as we dart from club to club. We need long-sleeve going-out tops.

The phrase “long-sleeve going-out tops” undoubtedly sounds like an oxymoron. Sleeves? In a bar crammed with people who are hot from drinking alcohol and even hotter from shaking their asses all night? The scene sounds like an abject mess—but it also highlights a myopia in our thinking about sleeve lengths. Consider the alternatives: sporting a short-sleeve blouse and showing up to the club covered in goosebumps. Or, sporting a short-sleeve blouse, showing up to the club covered in goosebumps, and toting heavy outerwear around all night long. One option leaves you frozen, and the other leaves you thoroughly inconvenienced.

Though they may seem like an out-of-the-box choice, long-sleeve going-out tops deftly navigate the middle-ground that exists between these two extremes. They’ll keep your arms adequately warm on frigid autumn nights, without leaving you feeling overheated the moment you step inside your destination of choice. And they don’t require you to carry anything around, so you can keep your hands free for more important things—namely, holding cocktails.

Not to mention, long-sleeve going-out tops are hot. They look good. They’re a surprising addition to any closet—sure to spruce up even the most tired of weekend wardrobes. If all you’re dealing with is a cool breeze, throw a long-sleeve going-out top over your hottest mini skirt or your favorite pair of leather shorts. If the wind’s picked up a little, opt for a pair of no-fail black jeans, instead. Long-sleeve going-out tops abound, and the styling options for them are just as abundant. Your eyes have officially been opened to a new and very practical sartorial frontier: Go forth and explore it.
