Guide to Tunics {The Pleated Blush Tunic}

I used to hesitate before buying tunics – indecision over how to wear them was always a problem for me. But this year’s take on the tunic is fresh…and light. Gone are the heavy cotton-filled tunics from the past but instead, today’s tunics are breezy and free-flowing (like this one), making wearing them a much easier task.

A few things to remember when styling tunics…
1) Avoid midi skirts or any full skirt with a tunic. Loose pants can look good but make sure the fabric is similar to the material of the tunic (example: Zara
***Skinny jeans look best (Zara has a few examples: coloreddistressedblack)
2) Avoid wearing a tunic as a dress, unless it’s lengthy or fitted. Looser tunics have a habit of flying up in the wind and can end up showing off a bit more than intended :)
3) Choose a tunic with an interesting cut and/or details, one with lace, slits, pleats, etc… They make for a much more interesting look.
4) Avoid pairing tunics with patterned bottoms; the focus should be on the tunic.
5) And remember that once you tire of the tunic look, you can always tuck it in as a normal top!

These are just a few of my personal tips but as with everything else in fashion, if you like it, go for it!
I’m off to pick some blueberries. Have a wonderful day and thanks for your comments!
