Long-sleeve T-shirts can fit your casual style and add just a smidge of extra warmth to cover your arms. When you get a nice little collection of long-sleeve T-shirts going, make sure you keep them neat in your drawers. You don't want to reach for your fave T-shirt and pull out a mess of wrinkles instead of crisp, clean cotton. Fold a long-sleeve T-shirt in a tidy square so it will be ready to whip on whenever you want it.


Lay your tee down on the bed or another flat surface with the backside facing up.


Smooth your hands over the fabric to banish every evil wrinkle.


Fold the left quarter of the T-shirt in toward the center. Grab the sleeve and make a neat fold so the cuff of the sleeve is down near the center bottom of the tee. Do the same with the right quarter of the shirt. Smooth the fabric again so it looks nice and neat.


Take the bottom edge of the T-shirt, and fold it all the way up to the collar. Smooth this fold nicely.


Flip the T-shirt over so you're looking at the front, and smooth it again. Lookin' good -- now tuck that tidy tee into your drawer and it'll be ready whenever you are.

Tips & Tricks


Some girls prefer to hang their tees instead of folding. If you have enough closet space, consider this neat alternative.
