Tunics: a two-face


Hello ladies,

One of my favorite rocking trends for this (mid-hot) summer is  a tunic. Reason it’s a two-face? You can pair it or wear it solo.
A tunic is not quite a shirt & not quite a dress either...This piece (either printed or simple) helps you transition from your drab winter wardrobe to something more fun and relaxed.



In my opinion, a tunic is a versatile piece in your wardrobe that can be exotic and trendy at the same time.
Let’s go back to that two-face statement….
If you wish to  wear this garment alone, your best bet would be the beach or a resort. Tunics are made to be comfortable and sometimes used as cover-ups.  Add a statement straw hat to your look and your good to go!
 On the other hand, this piece can revamp a classical outfit in a split second.  Simply team it up with trousers or better yet, tight-fitted denims and you will obtain an effortlessly chic combination.  This can be an ideal look for women who wish to style a sophisticated look without having to slave current trends to the dot.
I’ve been eyeing a silk tunic at Zara for the past month or so, and finally decided to welcome it to the wardrobe. As seen above, this mid-length garment plays around with oriental-inspired prints that allow me to style it up (due to its high-quality fabric) as it can simply come with me by the ocean during sunset.

If you are planning to style up a tunic, make sure to not add too much accessories to your outfit as it may look “busy”  and lose the idea of the tunic.  Instead of adding a load of jewels to it, keep it simple and rather play around footwear. If a tunic looks too loose on you, let it go. The whole point behind this piece is to wear it well and structured and not only look for comfort. Make sure it is somewhat fitted to your body upon purchase.
 

In the end, what really matters is your reflection on that piece. Buy what represents you and what is best fit to your body shape.

Keep in mind that there are many ways to rock your summer look by thinking outside the box.


With this said,


Dress. Love & Wear Summer.
