Styling a Tunic for All Seasons

By on September 29, 2018, in Fashion Trends

Tunics are a wardrobe staple for many women, and it is easy to understand why. They’re comfortable, flattering, and incredibly feminine, even if worn with jeans or casual pants.

If you have some tunics in your closet or are thinking of buying some, here are some styling ideas:

Fabrics and Patterns

Our tunics come in a range of fabrics, colors, and patterns. Our silk tunics, for example, often feature delicate embellishments that create a more formal, feminine look. Pair these with dressy crops and a pair of strappy sandals for a stunning warm weather look. Come winter, layer the tunic over a velvet midi-skirt and wear with elegant pumps.

On the casual side, our floral tunics come in both light and medium-weight fabrics that pair great with jeans, shorts, and leggings. The same holds true for our soft jersey tunics that can be accessorized to create your perfect look.

Your Bottom Half

Tunics are longer than standard shirts and blouses, so you’ll need to carefully consider what to wear with your tunic tops. Skirts and tunics go fine together, though shorter skirts that either fall straight down, or even taper a bit, can help you create a streamlined silhouette.

The same goes for jeans, trousers, crops and capris: Minimize bulk by wearing straight leg or skinny pants and jeans. Jeggings are also an option.

To Sleeve or Not to Sleeve

There’s no rule that a tunic must have long sleeves. There is also no rule that short sleeved or sleeveless tunics can only be worn in the summertime. For example, a sleeveless, lightweight bamboo tunic is perfect for wearing on its own in warm weather but also looks terrific under a long cardigan come fall.

Don’t Forget the Jewelry

Make a statement and enhance your outfit by adding some beautiful accessories. If you are wearing one of our embellished or embroidered tunics, you may not need a necklace: Opt for a pair of hoop earrings instead.

Pair a solid color crew or boat neck tunic with a long necklace. If your tunic has a scoop or v-neck, choose a shorter-length chain or even a choker. In either case, don’t be afraid to wear something made with tassels, large stones, or faceted beads that catch the light…along with everybody’s attention.

If you are wearing a tunic with short or three-quarter length sleeves, finish off your look with a bracelet, set of bangles, or even some unique rings.

Whatever your style, a tunic is the perfect all-season wardrobe staple. Soft Surroundings has an extensive selection to match any look.
