Tunics or longer style tops

I know MN is a bit divided on tunics but I'd like some longer style tops for the summer to wear over cropped jeans or leggings. Either short sleeved or sleeveless.

Any ideas where I can look please? I am early 40s, size 12, 5'3" and a bit top heavy.

Nomads and Joe browns always seem to have some things like that. Fwiw I like that look!

reading again you sound a really similar figure to me, and I find tunics suit me better with wide leg trousers, otherwise they tend to emphasise the top heaviness.

Thanks, think Joe Browns prints might be a bit too loud for me, I haven't heard of Nomads before, will have a look.

Boden have a few and they're not all widely colourful. Mantary at debenhams have lots but the patterns might be too much. Also try fat face and white stuff.

Adini have some nice tunics.
