One of the most liberating things about being a thrift and vintage shopper is the freedom to explore. If I’m looking for a particular style, I will often research brands directly (or via Pintrest) to find items that really inspire me. When I’ve saved up enough money for a new item I’ll refer to my research, then head to some of my favorite stores like Buffalo Exchange to see what’s available. Now, I was not always so intentional about shopping. I’ve certainly spent money on clothing that I didn’t need. Over the years, I’ve learned how to save time and money with this approach—it may not be for everyone, but it works for me. This process has definitely forced me to make more thoughtful purchases. At the same time I get to support local business owners. Win, win! Today I’m sharing a little round-up of inspiring Tunics. If I had to choose (thankfully, I don’t have too—whew!) I think my favorite choices would be #6, and #3. Which do you like most?
- I love the easy design of this Stripe Plane Tunic from Anthropologie.
- Serrv is a fair trade, handmade, non-profit organization, and this Embroidered Seaside Tunic is just lovely.
- I’m digging this Chambray Linen Button Down from Calypso St. Barth—Unfortunately this style is no longer available.
- This Forest Green Tunic from Modcloth is perfect for a day at the botanical gardens.
- This Linen Tunic Dress from Etsy would pair well with some comfy clogs, and a scarf.
- Oh wow, this Stitch Detail Top via Boden is simply beautiful—It’s also available in Navy. (*Note: this top is no longer available.)
