Styling tunics for cold weather

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:

1. Forward-seam tunic, $69 at J.Jill, in regular, petite, plus, and tall sizes
