Insomniac Sale Picks: Long-sleeved Printed Tees

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Amy requested a few picks for long-sleeved graphic or printed tees, so here we go:


rose graphic tee

Lucky Brand Photographic Rose Tee – was $28, now $13.53 – $27.99

Amy was specifically hoping for graphic tees in jewel tones, and this one fits the bill. This is my favorite kind of graphic tee – simple but bold, has a non-crew neckline, and will look equally fabulous layered under a jacket or totally on its own. Available in sizes XS – XL, as well as plus sizes.

olive long sleeve tee

Mossimo Crew Neck Long-sleeve Tee – was $12, now $8.40 – $12
plus buy one get one 50% off

If you’d rather go for a subtle, all-over print, try this dusty long-sleeved tee. Also versatile, since it’ll layer well under casual blazers and jackets but also look great with a solid scarf or chunky necklace. Available in this olive as well as heather navy in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Couldn’t find similar colors, but this tee has the same shape and all-over print in sizes X – 4X.

purple printed tee

Simply Vera Vera Wang Print Crinkle Scoopneck – was $40, now $16

Not a straight-up cotton tee, but still has that basic, minimalist shape with the bonus tweaks of a shirttail hem and scoop neckline. And still machine washable! Available in this purple print as well as a dark teal floral, coral/blue leaves, batik diamonds, or blue abstract tulips in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also love the jewel tone watercolors prints in this top. This similar top is available in petites, and this one in plus sizes.

yellow stripe top

Talbots Roll-tab Sleeve Bateau Tee – was $49.50, now $34.65
with code FRIENDS30

There are about 6 billion striped long-sleeved tees out there, but most are super simple and lack any interesting design details. This one, on the other hand, has tabbed sleeves, a shirttail hem, and a shallow scoop neckline, plus a painterly striped print. Available in this yellow as well as pink/white or navy/white in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in petite and plus sizes.

Sustainable resources for long-sleeved graphic or printed tees:

  1. Etsy – This is where I’d start! Handmade and vintage options in every color and style imaginable.
  2. Threads 4 Thought – If you’re down with subtle prints like dark tie-dyes and burnouts, try this brand. Also check Amazon.
  3. The Realreal – Not the easiest search on The Realreal, but the site has loads of long-sleeved printed tops in gorgeous colors if you’re willing to poke around a bit.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for long-sleeved graphic or printed tees:

  1. Boden – Printed long-sleeves are a Boden standby. Love this lightweight printed sweatshirt.
  2. J.Jill – Summery florals and lovely abstracts in regular, petite, and plus sizes.
  3. Lucky Brand – Mainly Boho, but lovely prints.

    I am in pretty desperate need of plus-sized maternity clothes that are appropriate for work iin an office!

    Hi! I’m looking for …um.. a sustainably/ethically made, sophisticated, yet practical, spring jacket, with a hood and ideally water-resistant and in a dark color. This is probably too specific for insomniac sales picks! but do you know of any sustainable/ethical brands which are especially good for jackets?

      Maria, I’ll drop you an email – my first instincts are to check Athleta, which now does lots of recycled material clothes, or Patagonia.

    I never do this – I tend to be a more specific and deliberate shopper, but I just clicked on that Talbots shirt and ordered it without a second thought. Really cute!
