Cowl neck tunics

I love practical tops.  Tunics are a wardrobe essential and as easy as they get – no matter your shape, they’ve got you covered!  Long sleeved cowl neck tunics have a fabulous combination of comfort, warmth and draped texture.  Making them essential daily wear pieces including at the office.

A slim pencil skirt and a pair of pointy-toe pumps sophisticates these relaxed tops.  Or, wear them with ponte pants or jeans for a more casual appeal.  For a finishing touch, you can add accessories like a double-loop belt (as seen above) or a playful cuff watch.  Throw on a chic long coat just before you head out into the cold weather!
