HOW TO STYLE A TUNIC SWEATER
While I’ve been loving styling the short and cropped sweaters this winter season, I decided I wanted a few longer sweaters in my winter wardrobe too. A sweater that could work with leggings for work from home days and be styled up a little for heading out of the house. Being petite, I try to be sure the longer sweater doesn’t overwhelm my shorter height. I wanted to share a few tips on how to style a tunic sweater this winter season.
My main goal with this green tunic sweater was to wear it with leggings. With a long and boxy sweater, I don’t want to add volume to my legs. It’s almost like making this a mini dress by pairing it with a good black pair of leggings. It helps keep my proportions balanced. I chose my comfy leggings and black leather boots. You could also pair this with black leather leggings and suede boots to dress it up a bit. If you want to have that same balanced look with jeans, I would opt for a skinny jean. I think a distressed skinny jeans and nude colored heels would be perfect.
Another tip is to play with an elongated illusion with your color choice for pants and shoes. I purposefully chose black leggings and black boots. Since the two are the same color, it elongates the look of my leg by not having a breaking point in color. With jeans, I would opt for a flesh toned shoe which can help with this same illusion.
While not always, I sometimes like to pull my hair back in a low bun when wearing high neck tops and longer tops. I think it helps elongate the look of your neck and face and can help add the look of length to your overall frame.
For this green tunic sweater, I opted for a size XS since it is already a boxy oversized fit. The sleeves are fitted which are so nice when working around the house. I love that I’m not constantly pushing my sleeves up to get them out of the way. This sweater comes in a few different color options, but this dark green was so gorgeous. I could not pass it up.
