Insomniac Sale Picks: Knit Tunics

*In this new late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, 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?*

Trystan requested a few picks for affordable knit tunics, so here we go:

Lole Principle Tunic – was $50, now $39.99

How could I resist the stripes? This 95% organic cotton tunic is definitely a slim-fitting style, which will work great on many figures and be a fabulous layering piece for others. It’s got a flattering scoop neck and a great curved hem. In addition to this gray, comes in red stripes on cream, white stripes on brown and is available in XS through XL in most colors.

ASOS Petite Skater Dress – was $44.76, now $33.12

Here’s the deal: ASOS currently has 163 “skater dresses” for sale, and this is just one of many adorable versions. I own a red one that would never have been long enough for actual dress use on my frame, and looking at the photos I’d wager most of these “dresses” would make great “tunics.”  This gorgeous green petite version has long sleeves, an empire waist, a keyhole cutout in back well above the bra line, and lovely gathering detail at the waist. Available in US sizes 2 – 12. But seriously: Get on ASOS and search for “skater dress.” There are petite, plus, and maternity versions in addition to average sizes.

Eileen Fisher Jersey Tunic – was $98, now $65

Trystan specifically asked for options under $50, but I can’t resist throwing this into the mix. Only $15 more, such a gorgeous color, and it’s Eileen so it’s bound to be great quality. Has slight dolman sleeves and a bias-cut hem with a generous fit. Available in XS (2-4), M (10/12), and L (14/16).

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for knit tunics:

  1. Boden – I may have lost interest in the embellished skirts, but oh, the Boden tunics. Season after season, I LONG for them. Such gorgeous designs and prints. Be sure to check reviews, though, as materials and sizing can be problematic for some styles.
  2. J.Jill – Always a good bet for tunic-length tops. Many of the current offerings are woven or sweater-y, but keep checking. Also hit the brick-and-mortar stores as you never know what will turn up on the sale racks. Some petite, plus, and tall size tunics currently on their website.
  3. Bella Brand – So. Caveats. Bella is a great basics brand, but they cut stuff pretty small and some of the fabrics can be somewhat thin. That said, pieces like this Cory T-Shirt Dress make fabulous layering options.
