If you’re anything like us, then you appreciate a good tunic top. What’s not to love? The tunic is a fashion staple that you can wear every season. Dress it up, dress it down — there are so many ways to wear it. Here are our picks for six versatile tunic tops to take you through spring in style.
The beginning of spring is sometimes chilly, making the long-sleeve sweatshirt tunic a must-have. It looks like a classic sweatshirt but has a flattering length. Look for a durable, super-soft fabric like French terry to ensure all-day comfort. A crewneck style sweatshirt tunic is universally flattering. Details like a ribbing at the neck and cuffs impart durability to this top style.
There are lots of ways to wear sweatshirt tunics. They’re great with leggings or yoga pants for gym day. Or, wear them with capri pants for breezy spring outfits that go with sneakers, flats, or heeled sandals. You can even wear them with skinny jeans, but if you want maximum comfort and a great fit, go for jeggings instead. Jeggings offer the look of jeans with the soft, stretchy feel and fit of leggings.
Spring is a great time to rock the three-quarter-length sleeve. When it comes to material, look for a fabric that’s soft and durable, such as Supima cotton. What distinguishes Supima cotton from regular cotton is its long-staple fiber. It’s incredibly smooth against the skin, making it a fabric you’ll love to wear. It’s also durable and colorfast, retaining its vibrancy even after repeated washings.
Like the long-sleeve sweatshirt tunic, the Supima cotton tunic goes well with capri pants. It can even be worn with a midi skirt or maxi skirt to add a casual touch. Tunics are always good to wear with leggings, and this style is no exception. Supima cotton tops come in lots of colors and prints, so it’s easy to find one or more to coordinate with the rest of your spring wardrobe.
Feel confident and comfortable all day in a boyfriend fit cotton tunic top. This type of fit is menswear-inspired yet still feminine. For a country-inspired appearance that looks stylish with jeans or capris, choose one of these tunics in a plaid print. To put a fun spin on the look, opt for a plaid color like daffodil yellow, petal pink, or soft blue.
The boyfriend fit tunic can also be worn with leggings or jeggings. Create a layered look by wearing this type of tunic over a close-fitting tank top. When it comes to footwear, you can wear almost anything from ankle boots to your favorite comfy slip-on shoes.
If you want a tunic top that’s easy to dress up, go for a long-sleeve or short-sleeve notch neck tunic. The V-shaped notch at the neck gives this top style a formal look. You can wear it with spring slacks, such as a pair of khakis. Or, you can wear it with your favorite midi skirt or maxi skirt. The addition of strappy heels imparts sophistication to the look, although you can also go for flat shoes if they’re your preference.
Add a layer of warmth by wearing a light sweater over your notch neck tunic. A women’s cardigan sweater in most any style works well with this tunic design. Create an on-trend look by going monochromatic with a tunic and cardigan in the same color. Or, contrast the color of your tunic and sweater for a bold, attention-getting outfit.
Go for a sweet look with a crochet-hem tunic. This tunic style comes in short- and long-sleeve styles, so you can have one for cool days and one for warmer days. The crochet hem has a lacy look that adds flair to your outfit. Look for a light fabric like cotton for breathable comfort, or even a cotton-rayon blend.
Capri pants look great with a crochet hem tunic — you could wear white capri pants with a turquoise tunic for a beachy, breezy look that can go anywhere. Or, wear a crochet hem tunic with a flowing maxi skirt for a boho-chic style that’s appropriate for almost any spring or summer occasion.
For sunny, spring days, consider a tunic top with sun protection. Look for a moisture-wicking polyester blend to keep you cool and dry, along with a UPF of 50 or higher for plenty of protection against UV rays. Wear one of these tunics with a pair of women’s shorts. You could wear a sun protection tunic with Bermuda shorts or over a pair of form-fitting bike shorts. Put on your most comfortable sneakers and you’ll be ready to tackle your day.
No matter which tunics you choose for your closet, you’ll love the flowing fabric and ample coverage of these long- and short-sleeve women’s shirts. These tops go with almost any kind of accessory, so play around with different looks to see what best suits your style.
