Styling tunics for cold weather

 Visit for more information on how to style your tunics by Sally McGraw. 

Tunics have fallen in and out of mainstream popularity over the decades, but they'll always have a place in the classic wardrobe. And although you may think of them as summery pieces, they can definitely work in colder weather. 

Fox 9 Style Expert Sally McGraw shows us how to wear them:

A tunic is a garment that is mid-way between a shirt and a dress. Ideally, it should cover the crotchpoint and fall to mid-thigh.

Tunics are generally pretty voluminous, and look best paired with slim bottoms. Try them with skinny jeans or leggings.

To make them winter-friendly, add an outer layer, scarf, and boots. 

If possible, pick an outer layer that is either fairly short/cropped or one that is very close to the length of the tunic itself.

Tunics can be tough to shop for, but here are a few good resources and recommendations:
