Winter Trends: Tunic Sweater


My go to outfit this winter has been a pair of leggings or skinny jeans and a tunic sweater. Comfortable, warm and cute.  Because I'm tall, I often have a hard time finding tunics that are long enough to cover all the important parts.  A few weeks ago, Audrey at Audrey Salutes shared a great post on extending the length of sweaters by adding a tunic style tank top with lace detailing underneath.  Genius!  Even though I'm on a "clothing-spending freeze", I am on the lookout for just such a tank top.  I figure an item of clothing that layers under something else doesn't count, right?  If you have seen one somewhere, let me know!

Luckily, my tunic sweater came with the lace trim attached.  It was a Christmas gift from my sister who purchased it at Loft, and I love it.  I have scoured their website, and they don't seem to be carrying it anymore.  They are, however, having a huge sale on many of their other sweaters, like this pretty gray turtleneck that is only $15.88.





Be sure to come back on Friday for the next Style Me Bloggers link up.  We'll be sharing our 2015 Wishlist.  This should be fun!

    1. I haven't decided when my spending freeze will be over. I really need to wear the things that are already in my closet!

  3. I am short and still have trouble finding tunics long enough I feel comfortable in. Gina over at The Daily Express said she's discovered the Liz Lange maternity camisoles at Target are perfect for layering and covering the assets. I gotta check into that. This look is very pretty with the lace detail peeking out!

  4. What a cute look - and I love how the light laces balances the scarf! I have the opposite problem - clothing that should hit mid hip often falls near my knees! I would love to be tall, but as I tell my son and his friends - that is truly something about us we can't really change ...

  15. I am tall too and wasn't liking sweaters hitting me at my widest pear shaped point, so I layered a thin knit summer elbow length t shirt tunic with a satin hi low hem under my sweaters which gave the added length and some extra zip to my outfit. I just bought two more of these type tunics from Macy's, Charter Club and Style & Co. on sale for about $9.00 each. They do have sleeves, but I need the extra warmth anyway. I think my inspiration came from the ever elegant & chic Tamera Beardsley.
