I’ve been writing about my love of tunics for years. They’re so easy, so flattering and my closet is full of them. I don’t want things to get stale, though, and the same tunic-with-jeans-and-tall-boots feels a bit . . . boring? Not that that’s not a perfect way to wear them, but I wanted to see if I could branch out and come up with some new ideas to help modernize my wardrobe (without buying a ton of new things). Here’s what I came up with.
3 Tunic Outfit Ideas To Try Right Now
1. Ribbed Tunic With A Lace Midi
I saw this lace skirt and fell in love. I ordered it on a whim with no idea how I was going to style it. I’m going to be experimenting with more looks, but I especially love the way it looks with a tunic and shorts. It adds a bit of coverage to short shorts (especially with the weather starting to get cooler) so I don’t feel overly exposed, but still looks sexy over bare legs.

2. Free People Tunic With A Floaty Mini
I love this skirt (that’s actually a slip). It’s short, but doesn’t feel too revealing because of the asymmetrical hemline — even with bare legs. It’s the perfect way to lengthen the hemline of a tunic just enough to go without pants or leggings. I love the texture it adds and it’s a great way to show off your boots!

3. Henley Tunic Over A Bodycon Dress
OK, so this isn’t a new idea of mine, but I’m still wearing this tunic-and-slip-dress combo all the time. This is my favorite non-sweater tunic, and I’ve been wearing it for years. It’s not too tight on bottom (like lots of other tunics are for my pear-shape), is often on sale, and comes in fun new colors each season. (How gorgeous is the brown?) Pairing it with a slip dress is my favorite way to wear it in the early fall. I’ll add patterned tights and a jacket when it gets cooler. (If you don’t want the dress underneath to show at the neckline, try this one!)

Love all of these looks! I’m so looking forward to being able to wear big sweaters like that again! Do you think the Henley tunic runs TTS? And also, would you be willing to do a tutorial on your hairstyle? It looks so chic and I can never figure it out on my own! Thanks!
The latest posts haven’t been showing up on the home page for the last week. It was only due to the email newsletter (plug for newsletter? haha) that I looked further. Not sure if someone is addressing the issue?
I really love these looks and ideas–I’m always a little at a loss with tunics apart from skinny pants, so this is really helpful!
