The LuLaRoe Irma is one of the most versatile tops on the market! Below, we will go through various ways to style the Irma, what to pair it with, and how to wear it best. Irma features a high low hemline, scoop neck and 1/2 sleeves (hitting right above your elbows, generally). Irma and LuLaRoe leggings go hand in hand, there is no question about that, but let us show you what else you can do with this amazing piece.
LuLaRoe Irma Price
The 2017 LuLaRoe Irma price for a tunic is $35, which is a standard price for the LuLaRoe tops. Match up with some leggings, and you have complete outfit for $60, that is a great deal.
LuLaRoe Irma Sizing
If you’re interested in LuLaRoe Irma sizing, please take note. Irma tunics do run big. This is for a couple reasons. Irma is made to be worn with the leggings. They have a high-low hemline, with the back being longer, covering all those necessary areas while wearing your leggings. They are also a tunic style top, so they are meant to be looser fitting, flowy and amazingly comfortable. As a general rule of thumb, I tell my customers to size down 1-2 sizes from your regular shirt size. So, for example, if you usually wear a Large top, I would recommend trying a medium or small Irma. This of course, can vary depending on fabric type. The fabrics that contain higher percentages of Rayon, spandex, etc. will have more stretch, and thus, more wiggle room. The arms on the Irma hit right above your elbow, and are a little more fitted than the body of the shirt (OK, much more fitted than the body!), so the largest factor when sizing down, will be the arms – once the arms start getting tight enough where it is not comfortable to cross your arms – stop – don’t size down any farther! The perfect thing about Irma, is that when un-tucked, no matter your size, it will cover all the areas you need covered. Remember not to just shop in “your size”, but rather, shop for the print you love, whether than be your standard size, oversized, or just a little on the small side. Let us show you next, how to do this.
LuLaRoe Irma Styling
LuLaRoe Irma styling is fun! There’s so many ways to wear it. The most common way to wear your Irma, is to style it with a simple pair of leggings. They were really made for leggings, by design, so you can’t go wrong with this style. Can’t get any easier, simply find your favorite Irma and match up with a pair of leggings! Don’t be scared to mix and match patterns/prints either! Polka dots and stripes can be used as a neutral print, and look lovely with a pair of floral leggings. When wearing with leggings, you can always add a belt, tie the side up, use the quarter hack to make a sunburst…. the options are endless!
Next, let’s get funky with the Irma. By sizing up approximately 2 sizes, you can do the following hacks with your top:
Off the shoulder: you will need to size up a couple for this, as stated above. I generally wear a Medium or Small Irma – to wear this style, I go up to a Large or XL generally, depending on fabric. Simply slip one arm through your neck hole, so the neckline hits right under your armpit. Take the sleeve that is left hanging under your arm, and simple tuck it into the shirt. (Like if you were turning it inside out, but just the sleeve!)
Sleeveless Irma: For this, you will do the same as the off-the-shoulder look, but both arms will go through the neck hole. Now, you will have both sleeves hanging at your sides. Instead of tucking them in on this styling, you will take both sleeves, pull them forward and tie in a knot right in the front. The tighter you can pull the sleeves and tie the knot, the more fitted the top will be, and the better it will stay put during the day. You can also tie the knot in the back, instead of the front, for a smoother look from the front. I do find sometimes I need a little help with this tie, as my arms don’t bend that far back! 😉
If you want to cover that knot up in the front on the sleeveless style – find a wide stretch belt ( I found a bunch for under $10 on Amazon), and place it right over the knot.
Cowl neck: One of my favorite styles for the Irma! This one, I like to size up even one more size, because this styling will pull up the front of the Irma quite a bit, so the extra room is perfect. You will start by putting both arms through the neck hole again, like you were going to wear it sleeveless. This time, take both arms, and instead of tying in the front, pull up and tie behind your neck. This creates the perfect cowl neck line. You can tie in a double knot, or, if your hair will be down, and the back won’t be viewable, I have just used a safety pin to connect the sleeves. This way requires less material than double knotting it. Which gives you more room to play, but doesn’t look as nice, so you will want it covered somehow! As you can see, with this style, I have a tank top on underneath, since the front rides up pretty high.
Wear with a skirt: Irma can be worn with any of our skirts, simple tuck in for a high waisted skirt like Lucy, Lola or Madison. Or, if you have a more fitted size (smaller) you can leave un-tucked, for a more casual look. I usually tie them at the side when wearing like this, so more of the beautiful skirt shows. Irma is also perfect with your Cassie (pencil) skirt. Tucked in or out, belted or tied…. any way, they are a perfect pairing.
As you can see, the Irma tunic is a very versatile piece, that should be a staple in your wardrobe. LuLaRoe Irma styling is soooo much fun for so many reasons. She comes in a large variety of patterns, prints and fabric types (including my all time favorite – leggings material Irmas!). If you are shopping online, and are not able to try on, be sure to ask your consultant about fabric and fit. She will be able to find the perfect Irma for you. Summer, winter, fall or spring, there is always a season for Irma!
