LuLaRoe’s Irma Tunic is a loose, knit “high-low” tunic with fitted mid-length sleeves. Tunics are a major throw back to days gone by. And by days we actually mean centuries. The tunic is a shirt or gown that was worn by women starting in the days of ancient Greece and Rome. But it’s not an ancient fashion, no ma’am. The tunic is such a simple design that is has withstood the test of (a looooong) time. It’s versatile and simple, and at LuLaRoe we’ve found that those are the best styles because you can wear them however you want with just about anything you want and each design is going to be flattering and stylish. But the bestest part of these simple and stylish designs is that they are perfect for any body - no matter your shape, size, height or nail color
But we didn’t just rely on the simplicity of the tunic tops for women to make something beautiful, instead we gave it that perfect little oomph that is special just to LuLaRoe. Our modern twist on the women’s tunic top was to incorporate the fun and sass of the high-low skirts and dresses that have gained a lot of popularity over the years. And we didn’t just because, hello! It’s adorable! But also because you can then pair the high-low tunic top with not only pants or a skirt, but also those lovable, snuggly leggings that most days you just really don’t want to take off (duh we made tunic tops to wear over leggings!)
The extra length in the back makes our tunic shirt a fave with everyone – especially for all those wanting some extra coverage for their, ahem, assets. If you just want to feel a bit more covered and comfy our high-low tunic top for women will be a must for your wardrobe, come summer, winter or fall.
Tunics come in a bunch of styles, colors and lengths today (there are even tunic sweaters for those chilly days.) And they even come with different names. Our Irma Tunic alone can be considered a high-low tunic top or even just a mid-length sleeve T. But no matter what you call it, this blouse is going to become a definite fave.
Of course, if you’re anything like us you might not know right away how to wear a high-low tunic shirt. The shape is unique, just like you are but don’t be put off by it. Tunic tops can be worn whether your pear, hourglass, apple, peach or plum shaped. They really aren’t the same as a high-low T as those can be a bit more casual, although you can absolutely dress-down our high-low tunic blouse. Since it’s a more feminine shape with the high-low length and the mid-length sleeves, our women’s tunic has a more sophisticated air about it, but that just means that no matter what you wear with it, you are going to look fabulous and stylish and not an inch of frump will be found.
Wearing this top can help you express yourself and feel beautiful. Pair it with your favorite earrings or leggings and make your outfit all your own. This high-low tunic shirt will also help you feel comfortable, relaxed, and stylish. At LuLaRoe, we’re all about helping you feel beautiful and stunning and also helping you to live your life in joy with who you are. That’s why we stick with these simple designs and shapes to help everyone find themselves in and through their clothes, because sometimes you gotta put on your Sunday best so you don’t feel so down! And rather than just making “Sunday best” clothes we make clothes that are “Everyday Best” so you feel 100% you and 100% gorgeous every. single. day.
How to Wear a Tunic Top
Now, if you’re looking for a few tips on how to wear our Irma or other tunic tops for leggings we’ll skip over Robin Hood and his men in tights and their tunics and just get to the nitty-gritties on our high-low tunic blouse with its perfect feminine twist.
What to Wear
You can easily pair it with those funky leggings we’ve been gabbing about. At home, work or on the run, the Irma Tunic can be paired with a pair of solid leggings or even something with a little shimmer in it to spice up the night. Throw in our stunning patterns and colors and you will have a never-ending list of options for every day of the week.
Looking for something a bit more business-casual? Well now ladies, take that slim fit of leggings and transition it over to our slim fit of pencil skirts and you’ve got the perfect va-va-voom outfit for the office! In the fall you can add a pair of ankle booties or switch to espadrilles in the spring and summer for an outfit that will transition from the office quickly to brunch! And want to know and even better secret than those lovely skirts? If you own a tighter-fitting dress with short sleeves or even a sleeveless one, you can EASILY throw the tunic top over it and VOILA! You’ve got a new pencil skirt! Oh, and you know what else is amazing about our high-low tunic? If you pair it with a knee length pencil skirt, you can easily throw on some leather, fall boots or rain boots and make a dash for it out in the rain, snow, sleet or hail all while looking radiant and beautiful.
If you do wear pants with your tunic top, make sure that you go for skinny and slim. Baggy or wide-leg jeans will make you look frumpy. The high-low tunic is meant to show off your sexy hips and stems, not cover it all up with more fabric. If you’re worried about warmth, go for skinny jeans with cute booties and add an infinity scarf.
Try to avoid adding another cardigan or shirt on top. The mid-length sleeves are such a sweet style that covering them up will detract from the femininity of the top. Plus, a cardigan on top will only add more fabric and width. However, if you do pair the blouses with a belt, you might be able to get away with a cardigan.
What to Add
Like all of our LuLaRoe pieces, when it comes to accessories we are all about pairing, mixing and matching and just playing around. If you have one of our patterned tunic shirts, wearing a simple layered necklace will be a great addition without drawing away from our beautiful prints. If it’s a solid women’s tunic, you can totally spice it up with a more flavorful and loud necklace to draw those eyes right into yours!
Add some bangles or a watch and definitely a pair of your favorite earrings. Hair up or down, you really can’t go wrong with accessorizing this blouse any which way you want!
And of course, be sure to accentuate for shape. Cinch on a spunky belt to show off your waist or for a bit of a change. Make sure to put the belt about where your belly button is, not low on your hips or else you’ll get the opposite effect that you’re going for.
As for shoes, we definitely would say to avoid sneakers. Even if you’ve got the long tunic tops over a pair of comfy leggings, we suggest flats of sandals to keep up that feminine and sweet look.
Of course, at the end of the day, we always always say do you and find what you love and makes you feel most comfortable. Our guidelines are just that, guidelines, and we know that your creative, spunky hearts will find some truly amazing and unique ways to wear our Irma Tunic. Whether it’s at the office, soccer practice, running to the grocery store, or out on a date with the hubs, you are going to love this top and you might actually never take it off!
