Stylish, great fit, well made, and just perfect functionality… These adjectives sum up my thoughts on the Purnell French Tunic that I have been wearing almost daily for the last few weeks.
I took possession of this great looking hooded top in early August. August in my part of the world is filled with warm days and cool nights. I used the Tunic for several days in the evenings around the house, and out to social events. I was thrilled to find so many people commenting on the great cut, and good looks of the top. I do love a good compliment, but I also agreed with them wholeheartedly! The Tunic felt great, and kept it shape all day long. I was worried about the material that this Tunic is made of, and felt that it may stretch out over the course of the day, WRONG. The Tunic just continued to look and fit great during a long day, or even a long weekend of use.
August faded away faster than I would have liked, and we landed in the cool month of September. The good news? I was ready with this awesome French Purnell Tunic:)
I wore the Tunic almost daily in September in a variety of ways: With leggings, With jeans, as a solo Top, or as an over top jacket. I loved that I could throw it on during trips to the grocery store to keep me warm, and then later head out on a walk a hike, or to a friends house. This Tunic just works in many many situations.
You will notice in the photos the remarkable cut of this tunic. It flares at the bottom for a very femine look, and even a better fit. I am a GIRL, so the cut was fantastic for me.
Ok, how does it hold up and wear? In a word FABULOUSLY! I have washed it several times now in my Samsung front load washing machine, not really taking too much care or concern for gentleness. It continues to look great, and has held up very well. It looks new!
The stitching looks good, and has held up very well. I again, have been concerned about the Tunic’s ability to hold shape during use, and after washing, however these concerns are unfounded. This article of clothing washes up very well, and looks great coming out of the washing machine.
You will also love how the Tunic looks after many days of wear, and after washing. The material continues to look new, no balling up, no weird wear spots, it just looks great!
My last comments are related to comfort. WOW. This things is just comfy! It feels great against the skin, does not pull or bind when I am moving, and is softer than a babies bottom.
I used the words FABULOUS, WOW, and Great in this article. All of these words are well deserved. Well done Purnell. I am a believer, and will be buying more.
This Tunic is perfect for use at home, a drive to the gym, a walk in the cool weather, after skiing, or just to hang out in. It is a must have for the active Woman.
