Whether it's a hot summer day or a chilly fall night, the Cap Sleeve Shirt by Sarah Alexandra is a versatile staple for any season. It can be styled casually for a day out on the town or dressed up under a blazer for a busy work day look. This top is loosely fitted to flatter any body shape and allows for comfortable movement.
Our womens cap sleeve tops feature a one-piece shapeable collar that can be angled up or down to fit your mood. The v-neck moderately frames the decolletage, leading to a seamless hidden placket and the cap sleeves cover the shoulders while leaving room for airflow. These classy ladies t-shirts run large and may be worn loose with fitted pants or sized down for a more fitted silhouette.
The Cap Sleeve collection features a variety of quality, sustainable fabrics ranging from fine Italian Tencel to luxurious 100% cotton. The shirts come in your choice of light-weight or medium-weight cloth in classic solid colors and unique yet subtle patterns.

What is a cap sleeve tee?
A cap sleeve tee is a type of women's t-shirt that features short sleeves that cover the tops of the shoulders but do not usually extend all the way to the underarms. This style offers a feminine and flattering look, providing some coverage to the upper arms while still allowing for freedom of movement and a lightweight feel.
Can cap sleeve shirts be worn as semi-formal?
Yes, cap sleeve tees are a popular choice for both casual and semi-formal occasions, offering a stylish alternative to traditional short-sleeved or sleeveless tops. While they are generally considered more casual due to their relaxed sleeve length, you can elevate their appearance by choosing a solid color and pairing it with tailored pants or a skirt. Add sophisticated accessories and polished footwear to complete your semi-formal look.
Are cap sleeves in style?
Yes, cap sleeve tops are still in style and can be found in many designer summer fashion collections. Cap sleeves are feminine and flexible, making them a fashionable addition to your most stylish outfits.
Should I wear a cap sleeve shirt tucked in or out?
Whether you wear your tee tucked in or not largely depends on your personal style and the type of occasion. Tucking the shirt in will help define and accentuate your waistline and create a more polished look. Also, if you're wearing high-waisted or wide-leg pants, tucking in the shirt can create a more balanced and streamlined profile. However, if you prefer a more relaxed and effortless style, leaving your top untucked can create a more casual and carefree vibe.
What body type should not wear a cap sleeve?
Anyone can pull off a cap sleeve! If you have narrow shoulders and wider hips, a cap sleeve shirt can provide balance and draw the eye upward. If your shoulders are wider than your hips, pairing your cap sleeve with a full skirt or palazzo pants can give you more of an hourglass figure.
