Fashion Weekend Edition: Tunic Sweater Touring

05 Jan

Behold the tunic: too short to be a dress, too long to be a standard sweater. It’s my go-to sweater when I want the warmth of a sweater dress but I’m riding all over town on my diamond frame touring bike. Add leggings, tall boots and a wool cap (and a scarf) and I’m set to run errands or tour the city on a chilly Saturday.

Tunic & Tights
The shawl collar on this sweater was what caught my eye in the store. I liked the buckles too.

About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.

    I think a tunic makes perfect sense for cold weather rding. It’s warm and fashionable. Since I don’t have any tunic sewaters, my version is to wear a short skirt with leggings, along with any wool or fleece top that coordinates well. I’ve also thought that a wool jumper would look good too and provide that hip coverage that we women crave.. I don’t own a jumper, but I’m considering making one.

    How cool that your sweater matches your bike…

      Yes, short skirts with leggings work pretty much the same. I don’t know how many short skirts I have left that fit. Maybe I should dig deep into the closet…

      Thanks, Sue! I’m flattered. I have a number of readers from the UK and I read a number of blogs from riders in the UK as well. It’s great to be able to share our stories “across the pond.”
