Versatile one-and-done pieces are a wardrobe essential for me; it’s so convenient having pieces that you can turn to on days when everything feels like a struggle. The tunic sweater seen in this post (more tunic sweaters here) was one of my go-to pieces this fall; it requires (almost) no styling effort: the mock neckline provides visual interest, and the mid-thigh length lends itself to be worn bare-legged, or over any fitted bottoms.
I like this piece so much I own it in multiple colorways (from the Free People option to some affordable alternatives that I found on Amazon). If you are interested in the version sold by Amazon third-party sellers, the material is a little thinner and has less structure (most pronounced in the neckline) compared to the starchier cotton blend of the Free People Ottomon Tunic, but it’s otherwise a good value. And I’ve ordered from “Prinbara,” “Calbetty,” “MISSJOY,” “MILLCHIC,” and “ANRABESS,” and found they are virtually identical items (which isn’t surprising considering they all use the same stock photos), with only small differences in the size labels.
