Tunics are such a versatile wardrobe staple, so I was happy to join my fellow #psblogger babes Authentically Emmie and Kelly Augustine for a One Style, Three Ways challenge with Gwynnie Bee. My tip: Just because a garment is called a tunic doesn’t mean you have to wear it as one!
I’m on the short side, so tunics can often double as dresses for me. I’ve worn this one before with short denim cutoffs underneath for my trip to Key West. This would also look great with black leggings, a moto jacket, and boots for cooler temps. But for this transitional weather that is starting to feel like fall but still gets hot in the afternoon, I wore it as a top with these bootcut jeans. Flares are huge for fall, and I think my next pair might be more dramatic, but these subtle flares are perfect for a girl breaking herself of a skinny jeans habit. Tucking this tunic in to the high waist on these pants and blousing it out is an easy twist on the 70’s fall trend.
Gwynnie Bee is great for bold printed pieces like this one, because I can wear it, return it, and not have the same noticeable item on over and over. If I love something, I can buy it and style it up, but being able to try before buying helps me assess whether something needs to a closet commitment or a fling. I’m returning this tunic for now, and I might re-closet it in the future. I love that flexibility. I’ve been a member for almost 3 years (!!!) now, and it is an awesome service.
