Looking for new tunics? This great, affordable, versatile style is a must for every woman’s wardrobe. Easy to match with jeans, skirts, shorts and work trousers, the tunic is a must-have piece of clothing and gives you real choice when you come to decide what to wear every morning.
With so many different styles to choose from, how will you know what to buy? You don’t want to waste money on the wrong tunic – even when they are so affordable – so you need to make sure you know what you’re looking for. Here are five great tips for buying the perfect tunic.
Cut – look for a cut that’s flattering. Tunics are more flattering than many other tops because of their generous cut, but you want to make sure that the one you choose fits in all the right places and hangs properly everywhere else. Check for length too – depending on your height, longer tunics can be more flattering than short ones.
Price – set a budget and stick to it. If you don’t have much to spend, check out online discounts and sale prices – you can get some fantastic bargains if you’re prepared to wait for the right deal.
Fabric – buy the best fabric you can afford. Whether this is 100% linen or cotton, or a fabric blend, good fabric is more durable, more comfortable and looks better. Good retailers know this, so you’ll only find good quality fabric in their tunics.
Manufacture – a good tunic needs to be well made as well as well designed. Good quality stitching will create strong streams that will last for years and will wash without deteriorating. Poor quality sewing results in holes and tears, so make sure you’re happy with the quality.
Design detail – often, it’s the finishing touches that make the most difference. Look for details like buttons, sleeve ties, pockets, embellishments and embroidery. All of these can turn the most simple of tunics into something special – giving you great value for money and a top that will look great anywhere.
Tunics are an essential wardrobe item, so it makes sense to take your time and buy the ones that are going to help you look fantastic. You can do this without breaking the bank and without taking hours to find the right thing – check out the quality on the high street and buy online, or look for deals from recognised brands that you know are reliable.
