Let’s talk about tunics—what they are and why I love them. A tunic is like a short dress…best length for most of us is mid thigh. It can have sleeves or not. It can be worn over a skirt, or jeans, or leggings, or pants! Amazing! Generally it’s like a shift-no waist definition. What a wonderful piece of clothing! So forgiving!
It elongates the body and hides any little bumps or muffin tops. It can be a soft long sweater, or a nice knit or fabric. It can be worn like a jumper, with a blouse underneath. It’s the perfect partner to the shorter jackets we keep seeing. It balances out the proportions. It hides our bottoms and smooths out our hips. I am always on the lookout for them. They are a staple for me, especially because I am short waisted.
They really do work on everyone. The trick is to find them. I always look through the dress rack, wherever I am. Any dress that is cut simple and straight is a potential tunic. Here we go again…cut the dress shorter! Remember, it must be narrow-not a lot of fullness-that defeats the purpose. Look through your closet. You may have a couple of things that would do it!
This is my “go to” look whenever I want my outfit to be foolproof! I always feel tall, sleek, and polished…even after I’ve been eating everything in sight for days.
Let me know if you have questions…I’m happy to help. Take care, Brenda
