Fashion Friday Story is here...and it's time to talk about how to style a tunic. If mom life is your reality, you are probably all too familiar with tunics. They are very flattering, when you are first expecting, right after baby and then beyond into motherhood. Why? Because a great tunic shows off your assets--your neckline, your chest and your arms. Tunics are great because they don't hug the middle of your body or your backside. Yes, areas that most moms are consider "a work in progress."
Heres's a steal to get a jump on your spring wardrobe. This Cents of Style Tunic is just $34.95. Pick from two different silhouettes (babydoll or keyhole) and a multitude of color in sizes 0-18.
I styled mine with slim jeans, a cuff bracelet and flats. This outfit can go anywhere in comfort and style. The flats are a new pair from Vionic called the Valeri--they come in a bunch of colors. And unlike most espadrilles, they offer support.
This outfit came along with me on spring break. It's easy to pack and easy to wear. I just love the drape of this fabric.
As I shared, Cents of Style has to versions. Though I'm kind of in love with both of them, I focused on the keyhole--mostly because I think it's the more flattering version for women with smaller chests. Here are some style tips in this video for body types other than mine:
