Hi what looks good over the top of a tunic. I am struggling a bit with this especially coat wise. It looks a bit like a bag lady if your coat is shorter than the tunic so am i right in thinking jackets are a no no and you have to wear a long coat?

Very good point.

Was thinking about this earlier as have just got into the whole idea of tunics but had forgotten that I am Always Cold. Indoors and outdoors.

I'm guessing that yes, your coat needs to be longer so at least knee length? <clueless emoticon>

My problem is I have lots of tunics and tend to wear jackets..hmm And i feel the cold if I am not wrapped up! Lots of pics of models in tunics do not have them wearing a coat. Perhaps I am just a softie!

Shivering Southern softie here...

I wear tunics and knitted dresses above the knee but wear coats that reach the tops of my boots or that are at least a little longer than my dress.

I have just ordered this coat in the hope of solving this very problem

Ooh lovely looking coat Clure, though it doesn't look toasty warm to me? (maybe you're not as nesh as I am though)

Thanks. I am of the hot blood brigade, though may need to wear a cardi under it. hoping it won't be too flarey either
