If you’re wearing a long sweater, tee, or tunic in the winter, you might need a jacket or coat with it. Here are some easy tips to help you layer these longer tops well.

How to wear a long top with a jacket

‘Tis the season to wear leggings and tunics all the time, am I right? But when you need a layer over the top, it can get a little tricky. So here’s a breakdown of what jackets or coats to wear with long tops.

It’s a really simple concept, but it makes a world of difference. Are you ready for this?

I create a few graphics to show you how much of a difference this makes…

Tips for wearing long tops with jackets and coats

Which jacket length works best with a long tunic top?

Check out that graphic above. See how the sweater is longer than the first and second jacket?

That difference in length creates a funky silhouette and makes a tire around your hips.

Avoid the tire around your hips!

Yikes! Look at that tire from the extra fabric below the jacket.

Avoid this!

Your jacket should hit at or below the length of your top.

Knot or tuck your tee for a different length

If you have a longer tee, there are other options, like tucking or knotting (I don’t recommend tucking or knotting long sweaters).

But with tees, it totally works! So if you want to wear a shorter jacket, just tuck your tee or knot it so it’s the same length or shorter than your jacket.

Otherwise, choose a longer jacket!

PURPLE COAT | STRIPED TEE | LEGGINGS | SOCKS | BOOTS | SUEDE JACKET | TAN COAT

Choose the right length of jacket for your long tees

Even though the tee isn’t as bulky as the sweater, you still get the same “tire” around your hips when the top is longer than the jacket.

Instead, tie or tuck. your tee up, OR choose a longer jacket!

The purple jacket is similar in length as the striped tee (it’s okay if the tee peeks out a bit!), and the tan coat is much longer.

I hope that was helpful as you add layers to your oversized pieces this winter!
