How to Style a Tunic


photogrid_1483442472969This year, with lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s, our Texas Winter so far has been very mild.  While my allergies hate it, the fashionista in me is excited to not be stuck in an oversized sweater.  On warmer days, a thicker shirt or light knit sweater is best. I stepped put of my confort zone and chose a tunic. The Romwe side slit tunic style t-shirt was perfect for today’s sunny January weather. Not being domethibg I normally wear, I had to discover what is the best way to style a tunic? After trial and error, i discovered:

  • Tunics can be fitted or loose.  Follow the rule: fitted on top, loose on bottom for a chic look.
  • Wear this tunic with leggings or skinny jeans for a chic style.
  •  Add tall boots or sexy ankle boots to add pizzazz to your outfit.
  • Make sure that a tunic cover your bottom, reaching to the back of your thighs for drama.
  • Wear a long necklace with your tunic to give the illusion of being taller. A long shirt, combined with a long necklace, keeps the eye moving from top to bottom, making your appear taller.
  • If you’re pear shaped remember that lighter colored jeans will make your bottom appear even bigger. Choose darker bottoms if you don’t wish to draw more attention to your shape. (However, remeber that msny if us love our “apple bottoms” so don’t be afraid to wear a lighter color if you want to.
  • Above all, bold and confident.  Tunics are worn to make a statement!

“Self Confidence is the best outfit. Rock it. Own it.”

This tunic and easily be paired with white leggings for a fresh vacation style. It’s the perfect cover for a day of play at the beach followed by a quick bite to eat at a nearby restaurant.  For those like me, who concerned about showing too much skin, I recommend still wearing a thin camisole of some sort so that you do not show your torso even during the warmer months.photogrid_1483443763591

I selected the medium size for this tunic. Overall, I really enjoyed the side slit tunic from Romwe.  I’m sure it will be the highlight for our next date night.
