7 Ways To Tune Into Tunics

God bless the humble tunic. There aren’t many garments that could rival the comfort of this underrated garment, making it a consistent go-to piece for both summer and winter styling. Pair with fitted pants to offset the oversized scale or a tonal coloured skirt to amplify the relaxed vibe, the tunic can take you to all sorts of events, whether it be a fancy luncheon or everyday errands.

If you like to keep your style classic or edgy there is a tunic to suit everyone’s personal taste and shape. We’ve rounded up some killer street style snaps to exemplify all the ways you can work a tunic into your style repertoire and dug out matches to steal their style.

We hope you enjoy the collection.

Yours in style and comfort,

Smart. Casual. Classic 🙂

Keepin’ it Classic: combine a dash of a print, navy tones, paired with eternally-stylish loafers and cat-eye glasses and what do you get? A forever winning formula. Add some metallic shoes and fancy earrings and you’re ready for a dinner date.

Dressed up: black is a reliable colour when dressing up and these cut-outs give a point of interest to avoid the look being too stuffy. To lift the black further, pair with a load of statement accessories, as per this lovely street style star.

With a skirt: if you’re teaming your tunic with a skirt, go for a matching colour. If further lengthens the body and give the illusion of a dress.

Angled: diagonal lines are really flattering as they don’t cut the body in half like perfectly horizontal hems. Add to that a subtle ruffle that gives a kick to your silhouette and you’re sitting pretty!

Open as a jacket: the key to this look working is that it’s paired with just one colour that matches the base of the pattern. If you have a long open shirt like this, it elongates the frame. But! If you wear it with black pants and a white top, it will totally negate all the lengthening power of the opened shirt and cut you in half.

Off Shoulder: if you’re looking for something new to do with your current wardrobe, why not see if your top will sit slightly off one shoulder. We just love how cool this looks layered with a plain top underneath and chunky jewellery. If you have long hair, wear it up with this outfit, you have to show off your styling prowess!

Preppy: when in doubt, go nautical! There is nothing sharper than a navy and white stripe; it elevates the tunic into the smart-casual dress code and teamed with a touch of denim and crisp whites its tran-seasonal style perfection.
