5 Ways To Wear Your Summer Tunic

You probably have a Summer tunic in your closet that you bring out for a day at the beach ever so often, but that’s about all the action it sees. A tunic is actually a quite versatile piece of clothing that can go from day to night, casual to dressy.  I’ve taken one of my more simple tunics with minimal embellishments, which allows it to work with more outfits and styled it five different ways for a variety of Summer events.

I love buying more elaborate tunics with beading and embroidery when I travel abroad, but this simple cotton tunic was purchased at Ross for $12.99.

Look #1: Sporty Casual

I paired the tunic with striped cotton shorts, a white rubber watch, white and black polka dot glasses, a round white handbag and fun purple wedges.  The wedges elongate your legs when wearing shorts, though this would look just as cute with a pair of white Converse. The fun accessories show you don’t take yourself too seriously and you’re out to have fun.  Perfect look for Summer picnics & baseball games.

Look #2: Boardwalk Bohemian

This look is casual cool with bohemian detailing, beading and layered jewelry.  This tube skirt is super comfortable and the funky tribal print gave me the color inspiration for the accessories.  The sandals are flat, great for lots of walking, while still being super cool with massive amounts of beading.  I layered eclectic necklaces, earrings and a ring to finish this look off. Perfect look for music festivals or strolling the boardwalk.

Look #3: Tropical Party

For this look I wore the tunic on top of a tropical print dress with ruffle details and tied it in a knot, giving it a shorter look.  This look is bright, colorful and will have you ready for any Summer party! I paired it with chunky heels, good for dancing the night away, some multi-colored feather earrings and mixed bangles.  The print of the dress is bold so I kept the accessories to a minimum.  Perfect look for Summer parties or a tropical vacation.

Look #4: Garden Wedding

This look is a little more formal, yet still Summer comfortable.  I paired the tunic with a long flowy skirt and pointed heels for a dressed up look.  The sparkly jewelry makes this simple cotton tunic ready for an evening of celebration. Perfect look for Summer weddings and garden parties.

Look #5: Sizzling Summer Nights

This look is full of eye-popping colors and bold accessories, perfect for a Summer night on the town.  Whether you are out to dinner with your love or dancing with your girlfriends, this outfit is bold way to dress up your tunic.  The faux snake skin clutch was the color inspiration for this look.  Brilliant emerald pants and shoes, topped with a neon yellow jacket and necklace are perfectly combined with the purple tunic.  Perfect for Summer dinner, drinks and dancing.
