My love for oversized sweaters and tunics runs deep. I’ve been trying to come up with different ways to style them for years. I even managed to come up with eight different ways to style this Free People tunic back in 2020, right before we all had a whole lot of extra time on our hands and no one was really worried about multiple ways to style a sweater.
But now that we’re starting to emerge from the world of all loungewear and sweatpants all the time, I thought it might be worth giving tunics another look. I mean, they’re pretty much a closet staple for fall and winter, so how am I wearing my fave tunic sweater (also by Free People) now? Especially heading into the season of holidays and parties and celebratory things?
Layered over a faux-leather miniskirt. Yeow.
How I’m Wearing Tunics This Holiday Season: Faux-Leather Miniskirts + Tall Boots
Tunics sweaters are comfy and cozy, and I love wearing them when it starts getting colder. Of course, it’s easy to pair them with boots and leggings, but once in a while I want to spice it up a bit. This turtleneck tunic is *almost* long enough to wear as a dress on its own (at least on my shorter frame), but the extra length of the skirt gives it a little more coverage and makes it work. And yes, that slit is high but I feel like the oversized, baggy fit of the sweater helps to offset it. (And there are a ton of faux-leather miniskirts out there right now if the slit isn’t your thing.)
I just like the bit of vegan leather peeking out underneath the knit sweater along with the smooth suede of the boots. I’m basically playing with textures in the same general shade family — nothing’s too matchy-matchy, but they’re similar enough that it all works.
The boots I’m wearing here are a couple of years old, but these knee-high boots from Blondo have the same general vibe and…they’re waterproof. The heel is also under 3 inches, and there’s a cushioned footbed, so they’re comfy too. (OK, I might need to get these.)
I love this combination so much, I might try a few other colors to really elevate my holiday looks!
