A Holiday Break


I’m going to take some time to celebrate the winter holidays with family and friends. Hope you can do the same.

I’ll queue up some archived posts for the weekend and be back to regular posting on Monday, December 29.

Happy holidays!

Insomniac Sale Picks: Shirttail and Round Hem Tops

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Leslie requested a few picks for shirttail and round hem tops – anything from tees to sweatshirts – so here we go:


Pleione Mixed Media Roll Sleeve Top – was $58, now $39.90

Many button-front dress shirts are designed with shirttail hems, but blouses with this design detail are surprisingly rare. This style has a woven front and knit back with a cute split neckline and roll-tab sleeves. Available in this purple as well as black, jade, or aqua in sizes XS – XL. Limited petite sizes. This similar style is available in 1X -3X,

burnout top

Volcom Juniors Burnout Long Sleeve Top – was $30, now $9.05 – $29.95

Take note of the juniors sizing, since this top is likely to run small. It’s a great casual shape, though, with raglan sleeves complimenting the rounded hemline. And unlike many “burnout” tops, this one appears to be opaque. Available in this olive as well as gray, ice blue, peach, or periwinkle in juniors sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. This similar style is available in X- 4X.

cashmere shirttail sweater

Halogen Cashmere Shirttail Sweater – was $148, now $88.80

This sweater could easily serve as a tunic worn with leggings or skinnies, and this is a pretty stellar price for 100% cashmere. Like many of the shirttail tops currently on the market, this one has a slight high-low hem. Available in this coral as well as heather gray, ice blue, or black in sizes XS- XL, including petite sizes. Size availability varies by color. Also in three colors in 1X – 3X. This shirttail hem sweater isn’t currently on sale, but comes in eight great colors and is $68 at full price.


NYDJ Henley Blouse – was $88, now $39.60

This 3/4-sleeve popover blouse will work equally well for work or weekend wear. And it’s machine washable! Available in this red plaid as well as blue plaid, a lip print, solid pale rose, or solid turquoise in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also in 1X – 3X in two prints.

Honorable mentions:

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for shirttail hem tops:

  1. Nordstrom – More than 150 options, including this luxe merino tunic and this pretty plus-size blouse.
  2. Gap – Lots of fun picks right now including this cozy dress and this simple striped tee.
  3. Amazon – If you’re looking for more tees and casual options, Amazon’s got ‘em. This hoodie is super cute.

This Week I Love …

… turtleneck and cowl neck sweaters.

I’m still a little leery of turtleneck SHIRTS, I have to admit. My winter uniform in middle school was a colorful turtleneck and cheeky printed sweatshirt, and I look back on those photos and wonder how I landed on that combo as a 12-year-old. But I spent much of last winter swaddling myself in scarves, and this year I realized I wanted some actual sweaters that covered my neck and kept me warm. Here are some of my current faves:


Banana Republic Waffle Turtleneck Tunic$98

I own and adore this very sweater. Mock turtlenecks fell out of favor for a number of years, but I’m thrilled to see them making the rounds again. They’re just as cozy as full turtlenecks, but a little sleeker and less bulky. This one isn’t long enough to be a proper tunic, if you ask me – I wear it with pants, not leggings – but it’s longer than a typical sweater and incredibly comfy. Available in black, gray marl, or navy in sizes XS – XL, including petite and tall sizes. This slightly shorter mock turtleneck comes in seven colors in sizes 0X – 3X.

cashmere turtleneck

Charter Club Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater$69.99

That is an AMAZING price for 100% cashmere, and you can choose from 16 gorgeous colors. I’ve read a lot of cashmere reviews this season, and it seems like many people expect thicker knits. Some reviewers said this style was too thin, others raved. Probably a great bet for warmer days and could be augmented with a nude tank underneath. Also in three colors in 1X – 3X.


J.Crew Cambridge Cable Turtleneck – $68.60

Chunky knits are trendy now, and this cabled turtleneck certainly qualifies. It’s a 3-gauge wool/nylon blend and will look fabulous with jeans. Available in sizes XXXS – XXL in this navy as well as camel, cream, heather gray, lavender, chocolate, ice blue, violet, or black. Size availability varies by color. This style is cotton, but is a cozy cable t-neck and comes in petite and plus sizes.


Woolovers Slinky Turtleneck$41.40
with code LASTMINUTE

I own this style as well, and it’s really lovely. It is definitely on the lightweight side, but a soft merino/cashmere blend that’s warm and lofty. And it comes in a whopping 29 colors. Available in sizes S – XL. Woolovers doesn’t do plus sizes per se, but their unisex sizes will fit through a 47″ chest.

marled cowl sweater

Anne Klein Marled Cowl Neck Sweater$89

I am really loving marled knits this winter, and this one has a particularly high-contrast, arty look to it. Available in sizes XS – XL. This space-dyed cowl tunic has a similar look in sizes 1X -3X. Looking for a lower price? This cotton blend Chaus cowl is only $41 but in limited sizes.

gap cozy turtleneck

Gap Cozy Turtleneck$43.99

I’ve tried this on in-store, and it is quite cozy. It’s also very oversized which means it looks great with slim or skinny pants. Available in this heather brown as well as navy, cream, tobacco, or heather gray in sizes XS – XXL. Also in petite and tall sizes. Not quite as oversized but lovely colors and great quality in these Pendleton mock necks in sizes 1X -3X.

merino cowl neck

Colour Works Merino Cowl Neck$19.04
with code 30CLOTHING

This one is definitely lightweight, but a great price for 100% merino which is warm and soft to the touch. Available in this red as well as brown, cobalt, black, or heather gray in sizes S -XL. I couldn’t find merino cowls in other size ranges, but this one is gorgeous in a cotton poly blend in petite and plus sizes.

Are you wearing turtlenecks, mocks, or cowls this season? Any other great sources for these styles?
