Tunic tops are still standing as a very popular fashion trend for women. (*Tunics are simple, slip-on garments made with or without sleeves) They come in many different shapes; from simply straight, to A-line, to empire waist. Tunic tops tend to be longer, usually going over the hips, with the hem often occurring at around mid-thigh.
Tunics are great addition to your wardrobe because of their ability to 'multi-task' for you. They're ideal for casual wearing, but coupled with the right item of clothing, tunic tops can adapt to a professional environment as well. Another way tunic tops multi task well is by making the transition from day wear to evening wear (when cleverly paired with right accessories, of course!)
Here at Wool Overs, we have an array of tunic tops and cardigans for you to choose from:
To start off, you have our Women's Cashmere V Neck Tunic Sweater. You'll be super cosy in this luxuriously soft cashmere and merino wool tunic top. With the deep ribbed v-neck and slash sides, this sweater gives you a stylish slim-line look to die for! And since we offer this cashmere sweater in seven distinct colours and at an unbeatable price, the hardest decision you'll have to make is which one to go for!
Many people believe that tunic tops work best when combined with slim-fitting trousers, jeans, shirts, or (if you're feeling daring) leggings (depending on the cut, jeans can be bulky and leggings offer a sleek alternative). Because the tunic tends to be loose fitting or 'flowy', by using a slim-fitting garment below the waist the tunic will help give the body defining shape and form.
At Wool Overs, we love to update classic knitwear designs to give your old faves a new lease of life. Our pure lambswool Oxford collar cardigan is certainly crammed with new features; knitted in soft lambswool, it's as warm and comfortable as ever, but this oxford cardy now has a tunic style body, with deep side vents to add some extra style. And the shell buttons on the cuffs and body create an additional feminine touch.
Some of our styles never go out of fashion (thank goodness!), and our pure British wool Guernsey Jersey is one of them. The tunic style design and side vents give this Guernsey wool sweater a flattering look, and since this tunic top sweater is knitted in the purest British wool, it'll keep everything toasty warm too! It's available in 6 subtle colours and is a bona-fide Wool Overs classic.
An absolute essential in every woman's wardrobe this season, is this Cashmere Collar-neck tunic. Knitted in soft cashmere and merino wool, this collared tunic top will make you look and feel sensational. And the long-line style will certainly flatter the figure-conscious amongst you.
Are you looking for a quietly sophisticated pure British wool cardigan? Then you may well find it in the long tunic design of our traditional Guernsey cardigan. You can wear it with jeans for an informal look, or team it up with more formal separates. When you wear this warm pure British wool tunic top, you will make an elegant statement wherever you go!
The wool gilet is one of modern fashion's knitwear essentials! When you try on this pure British wool Guernsey gilet, you'll wonder how you ever managed to live without it. This sleeveless tunic top with patch pockets is stylish AND practical; it's the ultimate 'multi-tasker'; no wonder it's so popular with you ladies!

For shorter ladies, the length of the tunic can create the illusion of a longer torso, which although desirable, will make the legs look shorter. To counter this, it's extra important to combine the tunic with slim-fitting bottoms, which will help elongate the legs. (You may also want to consider wearing heels rather than flat shoes with the tunic top for the same reason!
Our Cashmere Women's Long V Cardigan tunic will certainly suit any figure with its flattering V Neck and A Line shape. It manages to blend femininity with luxurious comfort! Or for a lighter version, try our Silk & Cotton Long V Cardigan; with it's flattering, feminine, long vee-neck knitted from the finest mix of silk and cotton, it certainly delivers on style. The A-line tunic body shape and v-neck design, is contemporary casual chic at its best!
We really hope you find something amongst our range of tunic tops that you'll want to make your own.

ADDITIONAL TUNIC TOP STYLE TIPS:
Why not try pairing the tunic with a waist-defining belt? The best way to accentuate the shape of a tunic is to wear a belt to cinch the waist (this look helps to emphasise your curves). Accessorising can be very important for the right look; such as chunky bracelets and earrings. If you're wearing shorts or a skirt etc., make sure the hem is (at least) a few inches longer than your tunic! (also, look for a slim cut, such as a pencil skirt)
