Just some of my favourite Lagenlook tunics. When I first stumbled upon these fabulous clothes, I’d been searching for long shirts to wear, those that come to well below the mid-riff or waist…sure, if you’re young and nubile, those super-short shirts would look good on you. But if you have lumps and bumps you’d rather not have on display, then you may want to find something longer and more flowing.
When I find/make/modify my ideal tunics, I intend to wear them over jeans or leggings, with boots or strappy sandals. I’ve seen some people wearing long tunics as dresses, with belts, sunglasses and a straw hat – great for the beach on a hot summer’s day, but not for me, personally.
Remember, Lagenlook is not just about tunics. It encompasses dresses, jackets, coats, skirts, bloomers, petticoats, trousers etc. This post today is just about Tunics, and my quest to find the perfect one.
I like the idea of ties at the back, so I can adjust the width of the tunic, and to give some interest to the back as well. I love long pleats and smocking on the front. My favourite style for sleeves has got to be the button-up style, the one with that button strap that goes from inside the sleeve to the outside and secures with a button, leaving a very pleasing look. I also like a row of buttons down the front of my tunic. The best materials for carrying off the Lagenlook style seem to be linen and cotton, and I can’t argue with that.
