we’re preparing for summer over here on the blog. this week we rolled out our top 4 summer essentials. we’re sticking with that theme today, and rounding up a collection of some of my favorite summer tunics from the archives. tunics are a big part of my wardrobe—they always have been and will continue to be. there’s so many different ways you can wear them, and here are 3 outfit inspirations for how to wear a tunic this summer.
today’s ootd is casual through and through. but that’s what summer is all about. it’s time to stay cool with flowing tops, relaxed chinos, and sandals. (similar) chinos act as a neutral and ground this (similar) tunic. yellow slide sandals are back in action. and i couldn’t resist reaching for my new (similar) straw handbag from Nordstrom to add a touch of summer whimsy.
wardrobe basics come in a variety of styles but they always stick to neutral colors. nude, black, grey, white. if you have the basics on hand getting dressed in the morning just got a whole lot easier. (similar) denim and an off-white (similar) tunic always make my list. as do nude pumps and handbag (similar here). tunics cover your assets beautifully especially if you’re inclined to wear leggings. go sleeved, sleeveless or short sleeved. they all work perfectly.
this linen tunic is wonderful. it goes with everything. and i do mean everything. take a look at today’s ootd. (similar) linen tunic paired with (similar) green linen pants . perfect summer combo. now that summer decided to stay awhile linen becomes a go-to fabric for me. yes, it wrinkles (that’s its charm) but if you want to stay cool and fresh in hot weather linen will never let you down. and it’s a natural fabric which i prefer over synthetic.
