How To Wear A Tunic Without It Looking Like A Sack

Tunics have a bad rap as being shapeless, saggy, and as flattering as a sack of flour. But, when all we want to do is throw something on and go, the tent-like topper truly becomes a closet powerhouse with easy-to-style versatility. Is it a shirt or a dress? The answer: It's both. Wear it with cropped trousers for work, or don a longer iteration by itself on the weekend. Our favorite shops are brimming with modern versions waiting to be scooped up. We never thought we'd see the day when words like "structured," "color-blocked," or "sexy" could be used in reference to a tunic. But, such aptly described pieces await ahead, so click on to hit the sack.
