Insomniac Sale Picks: Natural Fiber and Blend Tunic Sweaters

*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?*

Krysta requested a few picks for tunics with some natural fiber content, so here we go:

 

tunic sweater

J.Jill Ashley Tunic Sweater – was $69, now $39.99

As I mention below, J.Jill is always worth a look if you’re seeking tunics. The company does design lots of manmade-fiber sweaters, but this one is 70% cotton, which will make it comfy and versatile. It’s got a mix of textures, and comes in this cranberry as well as red heather, spruce, light blue, gray heather, and black in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also in petite, plus, and tall sizes. If you’re looking for pastels or a lighter knit, try this sweater tunic instead.

Woolovers Fair Isle Sweater Dress – was $62, now $32

Although this is called a dress, it’s between 31″ and 32″ in length so for average and tall gals it should be in the tunic range. It’s pure lambswool, so it may be a bit itchy for some folks, but Woolovers’ wools don’t tend to be unbearably scratchy, in my experience. Available in this gray as well as navy, cream, turquoise, or red fair isle in sizes XS – XL.  Size availability varies by color. This similar style is available in 1X – 3X. Woolovers also has other tunic options like this turtleneck tunic and this lofty cowl.

Land’s End Cotton Cable Boatneck Tunic – was $59, now $41.30
with code LOVE and pin 1030

When I think “tunic,” I think mid-thigh length but shorter versions still qualify. If you’d rather have a style that hits around your hips, this boatneck is worth investigating. It’s 100% cotton, so comfy, absorbent, and washable. Available in this white as well as turquoise, red, black, or navy in sizes XS – XL.  Size availability varies by color. Also in petite, tall, and plus sizes.

turtleneck tunic

Woolrich Clapshaw Cowl-Neck Tunic Sweater – was $89, now $49.99 – $78.62

This sweater has the lowest natural fiber content of the night at only 30% wool, but it’s such a great shape and style I wanted to include it. This tunic would look so perfect with faux leather leggings and ankle boots or jeggings and tall boots. Available in this camel as well as charcoal heather and blue heather in sizes XS – XXL. Size availability varies by color. This similarly shaped cowl sweater tunic comes in sizes 1X – 4X.

Sustainable resources for tunics with some natural fiber content:

  1. Everlane – I own and LOVE this one, and there are a few others in cashmere and cotton blends.
  2. Eileen Fisher – Organic and sustainable options like this minimalist merino sweater tunic.
  3. Gudrun Sjödén – Lots of colorful organic cotton options!
  4. LISSA the Shop – Tunics in both sweater knits and jersey, comfy, cute, and sustainable.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for tunics with some natural fiber content:

  1. J.Jill – Always a go-to for tunics. This cotton blend in pastels will be great for spring.
  2. Nordstrom – More than 100 options including this wool/cashmere blend in four eye-catching colors.
  3. Amazon – You’ll need to narrow your search by fiber, but there are hundreds of sweater tunics in cotton, wool, cashmere, and linen blends. Love this cotton-blend waffle knit.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Chic Petite Raincoats

*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?*

Amelia requested a few picks for chic petite raincoats, so here we go:

 

petite raincoat

Eddie Bauer Petite Mackenzie Trench – was $179, now $107.40

This is a very simple raincoat, but sleek and fitted with great lines. The fabric has a tweedy finish for a more luxe design and is totally waterproof. My own raincoat is from Eddie Bauer and I adore it – it’s lightweight and flattering and super versatile. This one comes in navy shown here, as well as mushroom or dark gray in petite sizes S – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in regular, tall, and plus sizes. If you need something longer or heavier weight, try this insulated trench.

floral raincoat

Land’s End Petite Coastal Rain Parka – was $109, now $81.75
with code SWEET and pin 4801

If you’re looking for something more eye-catching, this pretty floral should do the trick! Also guaranteed waterproof with sealed seams, and features a hood and full lining. Available in petite sizes XS – XL. Also available in regular and plus sizes. If you prefer something plainer but brighter, this LE raincoat comes in hot pink.

petite trench

Petite Towne by London Fog Belted Trench Raincoat – was $200, now $105
with code SWEET15

Oh, how I love a trench with an A-line shape. This coat is only water resistant, but should be just fine for anything short of a downpour. It’s fully lined and features that fabulous double collar. Available in this tan as well as black in petite sizes XS – L. Size availability varies by color. Also available in regular sizes, and this trench is available in sizes 12 – 28.

Sustainable resources for chic petite raincoats:

  1. eBay – Oh gang, most of the sustainable brands aren’t doing petite sizes just yet, so it’ll be the fallbacks tonight. eBay has both cute and classic options gently used.
  2. Etsy – Lots of vintage trenches and a few shorter styles.
  3. Eileen Fisher – Just a couple of styles, but check back in spring. Peek at Nordstrom’s selection, too.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for chic petite raincoats:

  1. Eddie Bauer – More cute styles in addition to the one shown above, including this jewel-toned rain parka.
  2. Nordstrom – Nordstrom generally excels at both outerwear and petites, though selection is a little thin right now. Check back in a few weeks as more options are likely to appear.
  3. L.L. Bean – Many of Bean’s petite waterproof coats are parkas, but lighter options like this colorful trench are mixed in, too.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Pastel Fit-and-Flare Dresses in Longer Lengths

*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?*

Ana requested a few picks for pastel fit-and-flare bridesmaid-appropriate dresses, so here we go:

 

coral bridesmaid

Jill Stuart Midi Pleated Halter Dress – was $388, now $116.99

I can see why Ana submitted this request – even the dresses designated as bridesmaid dresses by various vendors tend to be quite short! I put this dress up front because it’s a true midi, though with the halter it’ll need a specialty bra. Great for a spring wedding, though! This dress is shorter but the same color in sizes 14W – 24W.

 lace bridesmaid

eShakti Amelia Dress – was $79.95, now $63.96
Discount taken in cart

Ana was specifically hoping for lace dresses, so I was THRILLED to find this one. I love a sweetheart neckline, and since this is an eShakti dress you can customize sleeve and hem length. Available in sizes 0 – 36W. If this style doesn’t send you, eShakti also has this peach lace overlay and this seafoam organza.

yellow bridesmaid

Donna Morgan Jessie Chiffon Dress – was $189, now $37.81 – $80.33

So this dress runs small in the bust and is going to be knee length or slightly above for most gals, but I’m throwing it into the mix because it comes in this yellow as well as pale pink, peach, sky blue, orchid, ice blue, and blush, making it a great choice if “pastel” trumps “long” for anyone. It actually comes in 19 colors total, in sizes 0 -18, as well as plus sizes in black or silver.

Sustainable resources for pastel fit-and-flare dresses:

  1. Reformation – A bit of fudging since there aren’t tons of pastels, but there ARE tons of gorgeous, sustainable bridesmaid-appropriate dresses.
  2. Star Vixen – Mostly casual, but a few dressier options like this lace skater dress are mixed in. (Might be pushing it, hemline-wise.)
  3. Nanette Lepore – Surprisingly few pastels, but some lovely formal options including this one-shoulder dress.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for pastel fit-and-flare dresses:

  1. J.Crew Weddings – Lots of lovely options, including this knee-length long-sleeved lace dress.
  2. eShakti – Always worth checking! Hemlines are customizable, and bridesmaid options about, including this powder blue midi.
  3. Nordstrom – Ana is right, hemlines are high all over the place, but Nordstrom has a few knee lengths like this simple dupioni dress.
