The tunic is coming on strong this spring and summer, and it makes a great topper for the skinny pants you see everywhere. The tunic length can help sugar coat figure problems below the waist, and they also flatter women who are small busted. Here are several examples of this hot trend.
The Hellz Bellz Women’s Miss Freedom Tunic in black is asymmetric, with one short sleeve and one long winglike sleeve. Worn over white skinny jeans with some strappy high heeled sandals, this look is great for dates and going out dancing.
Rojas makes a Relaxed Fit Tissue Thin Top that does a great job of avoiding one of the most common problems with tunics: extra bulk. Over skinny chinos or a pencil skirt, this top is work-ready. On its own, it makes for a great beach cover-up.
This is really beautiful: the Sequined Fitted Mesh Tunic by Free People. It’s close fitting and available in several colors and would look great over a pair of faded, distressed jeans on a night out.
TopShop of course does its own original take on the tunic trend, and this Dragonfly Mesh Tunic is the perfect example. Made of jersey with dragonfly embroidery, you could wear it over a black pencil skirt or jeans with equal ease.
For a slightly retro edge, try this Mini Stripe Jersey Tunic by L.A.M.B. In graphic gray and white, stripes are done on the bias, making them flattering even for those who think they “can’t” wear stripes. This would look great over a mini skirt with flat metallic sandals.
The Nightcap Clothing Baron Tunic in white treads the fine line between lingerie and outerwear with sheer lace at the V neck and a double-layer lace panel in front. It has an asymmetric hem that’s flattering to full or narrow hips. This is a very sexy look worn with slim-fitting jeans or leggings.
