Burgundy Cowl Neck Tunic + Blackout Leggings
Greetings, friends! Today is Day 12 of 25 Days of Winter Fashion, and I’m wearing a burgundy tunic I’ve shared once before. I’m so happy it’s still available because so many things sell out quickly, and this is a great piece that can be worn multiple ways.
I originally wore this tunic with grey jeans and black ankle boots, but I’ve also worn it with leggings and OTK boots so I wanted to show you that option as well.
I’m always a sucker for a good cowl neck top, and this side slit cowl neck tunic doesn’t disappoint. I like the quality of the knit, and it’s thin without being flimsy. If you tend to overheat easily or live in a warmer climate, I think you’ll like the weight of this top. There’s a very subtle ribbed texture to the cowl, sleeves, and hem, and the side slits make it easy to move around in.
At my height (5’5″) it is just barely long enough to wear with leggings. At first I thought I wouldn’t wear it this way, but I tried it and found that I actually felt quite comfortable in it. I actually wore this exact outfit to church one Sunday morning last month. This tunic comes in about 8 colors, and I have it in the small (for size reference.) It’s true to size for this brand, but if in doubt, size down.
I’m really impressed with these Hue blackout leggings. I’ve always worn and recommended the Hue ultra wide waistband leggings, but these blackout leggings are thicker and darker, and they have a seam down the front. I bought them after I saw another blogger friend of mine recommend them, and they’re definitely thicker and nicer than the other pair.
The other pair is fine, but these have more coverage and I feel like they’re dressier too. I’ll still wear my old ones around the house, but I like the darker, thicker feel of these blackout leggings for when I’m dressed up to go somewhere. For size reference, I have the medium.
If you’re looking for a super thick legging that is more like pants material, I recommend the White House Black Market solution ponte leggings. They’re great for those looking for maximum coverage.
I accessorized with these Kendra Scott Lyn drop earrings and a Gorjana stone cuff I snagged for 40% off during the #NSale, but it has since sold out.
I love how these earrings make a bit of a statement without being too much. They are a little heavier than some, so bear that in mind if that’s an issue for you, but they don’t bother me at all. I didn’t need a necklace with this top, so I wanted an earring that stands out a little bit, and this Bordeaux color in the stone is perfect with my sweater.
My cuff bracelet has sold out, but this one is similar, just without the stones.
I’m wearing CND Indigo Frock on my nails. It’s one of my favorite colors for this time of year because it’s neutral enough to go with everything, but it’s a deep, rich color that’s perfect for winter.
When I wear leggings, I usually wear tall boots. I feel like it’s more flattering and less like I’m wearing tights. These Blondo Olivia boots were an #NSale purchase to replace a similar pair I had for the past few years that got ruined. (Long story, but I was really bummed because I love this style.) There are only a few sizes at DSW, but the Blondo Velma is very similar. Both are waterproof (all Blondo boots are) which is really nice when you live in an area that gets a lot of messy winter weather as I do.
These Corso Como boots are similar too, and there are more sizes available. I have tried those as well, and I can attest that they’re gorgeous boots, but they aren’t waterproof.
I had said I’d be sharing holiday-appropriate outfits this week, and this is definitely an option for a casual at-home get-together with friends or family, or a casual dinner out. Some of you have mentioned that you don’t attend holiday parties, per se, but if you have a casual event around holiday time that requires leveling up a bit without being super dressy, this outfit is perfect for that type of gathering.
