Tunic Inspiration

All photos via pinterest

Did you guys see (here) that our friend Bekah from matters of merrymaking is hosting wear*it Wednesday this week? She chose "how to wear tunics" which is a great choice! A tunic is basically a long top that is usually somewhat loose fitting. 

I love tunics for two reasons:

1) They give you a good excuse to wear leggings in public, since they cover the good china. <Thanks Peach from season 8 project runway>

2) Since they're so long, I'm able to wear my stretchy-ish skinny jeans that aren't exactly the most flattering on my butt. To show that I need a little more structure (but give up the comfort).

So send in your tunic pictures to Bekah early this week - she needs them by tomorrow night to get the post ready before heading out of town for the holiday!

Have a great start to the week!


  1. The bottom left tunic with hearts is too cute!

  2. Funny story: this summer I was in a retail store and tried on what I thought was a cute summer dress. It had a black and white pattern, a sort of jewel-ish-blinged-out neckline, and on me--on all 4'11" of me--it came to a great place just above my knees. Later in the summer, during the "we need to clear the racks for all of the fall clothes to rush in" sales, I looked on Said Retail Store's website to find this dress, to see if it was cheaper. "The dress" was nowhere to be found. But a tunic, that looked alarmingly similar to the point where I realized, half an hour after viewing it, was available. At a crazy-cheap price. But, alas, not in my size.

    So yeah. Another reason to like The Tunic: for a person who is so short that even "petite" categoried clothing need to be hemmed on her, The Tunic is a great way to get a cute short dress for less money than a typical cute short dress might cost.

  3. Great inspiration! Would kill for that heart tunic, however! LOVELY! Very excited about hosting this week!

  4. I love tunics, they are always so comfortable! I love them with tights!

  9. i love the center bottom tunic, especially the mixing of prints & colors. very cute!


  10. I love tunics, but mainly because I am VERY tall {not, not quite model tall, but that awkward-nothing-is-made-for-me tall) and tunics just are kind of like shirts on me. Unfortunately, that means leggings are sort of not an option... too much bum showing!


Thanks for stopping by! Your comments make my day ♥
