The tunic for everyone.

Tunics scream NOOOOOOO to women my height. At 5’3″ (and 3/4″s, gotta get that extra almost inch), tunics inevitably go down to my knees. I try to stay away, but with this one, I just couldn’t.

I’ve been in love with rugby shirts since my faux-sporty days, but I could never pull them off. But with the floral detail and side slits that make it feminine, I had to try it.

This tunic, of all the tunics in the land, is a tunic for everyone. My fashion idol, Courtney Kerr, pulled it off far better than I – she is, after all, not 5’3″ – but that didn’t stop me.

I’ve been living in this Free People tunic. I wore it with a jean jacket, dress pants, and my all time favorite bling oxfords here, but I’ve also worn it with leggings and boots, tied in the front with jeans, and as a nightgown because why not sleep in clothes you love?

And since I’m a bad blogger and got it at sale price, I’ve rounded up all the places you can still buy it, lest you miss out on the tunic that is a little sporty, a little feminine, a little look I just rolled out of bed and threw this on, I’m basically a fashion goddess.

All the places you can still buy the Free People Eloise Tunic.

  • Free People has the Olive color left in extra small. For reference, I got a medium but actually could’ve gone smaller even with my substantial hips.
  • The Buckle has it in small and medium in the color I’m sporting.
  • Poshmark has a whole slew of them because, apparently, some people don’t believe it really is the tunic for everyone.
  • And of course, eBay does as well. Again, resellers, how do you not understand this is the best tunic of all time??

So what are you waiting for? Go forth and style the shit out of this thang.
