Daily Ritual Women's Jersey...Shop on Amazon

I have this one, it’s a luxurious stretchy jersey knit and tunic length. If wearing with leggings or skinny jeans I just leave it out, it covers the bum. If wearing with wider leg pants or short I love knotting the front or doing a front tuck. Highly recommend!
