Gingham print tunics, tunics with elbow-length sleeves, long sleeve tunics, and bold floral prints joined the revolution in casual tops and knits. In the 70’s, women’s tunics were often adorned with flare sleeves, pintuck detailing, and beautiful embroidery. 

  • 80’s era Women’s Tunics:  Vibrant tunic tops, peplum tops, and collared button-ups went to the next level in the 1980’s, and knit tunic tops with dolman sleeves were all the rage. Graphic t-shirts became ultra-cool, and puff sleeves became a wardrobe staple! Bold neon prints and short sleeve button-up tops were everywhere and Peter Pan collars made a major comeback. 

  • 90’s era Women’s Tunics:  Bohemian tunics made a comeback in the nineties, and were presented with mock collars and intricate embroidery. Beaded tunics also became a popular choice for the emerging 90’s boho vibe. Over-the-shoulder tunics became a mainstay in casual nineties shirts and tops, and mock neck tunics got lots of love too. Sheer and mesh tunics hit the runway in the 90’s, and plaid button-up tunics were everywhere.
