5 Ways to Wear Your Tunic Tops
What Is A Tunic?
There are loads of different types of tunic tops out there, from sleeveless tunics to longer tunic tops that almost reach your knees. The versatility of tunics makes them really good fun to style as there’s no right or wrong way to wear them. Tunic tops will flatter any woman’s figure thanks to their long silhouette and flowing fabrics.
For your Evening Out
The classic tunic is an undoubted style icon, worn way back in ancient times by both men and women. It was a simple garment to craft - two pieces of fabric sewn together with holes for the head and arms - and was typically worn with a belt. The fashionistas of the ancient world added a bit of extra detailing to their get-up too, such as gathering the shoulders or adding dainty embellishments for a bit of pizzazz. Tunics were also dyed with bright colours, meaning they’ve been a characterful addition to wardrobes for literally thousands of years.
These days tunics are less of a necessity and a definite wardrobe staple. They’re functional, sure, but they also provide the perfect canvas for detailing, colour and patterns.
How To Wear A Tunic
1. Accentuate Your Legs With A Lovely Pair Of Leggings
For those gorgeous tunics that are just a little too short to become a dress, adding a pair of leggings is a great way to keep your look bright and breezy whilst adding an extra layer. Perfect for cooler evenings and autumnal strolls, tunics and leggings are an effortlessly elegant combo.
Exude smart casual by bringing tights into the mix too. Show off your lovely legs in a pair of patterned tights, a great option for warmer months or a more cosy ‘night out’ outfit.
We stock a range of tunic tops for leggings here at Joe Browns so you can get all your wardrobe essentials in one place. Our funky colourful tights shouldn’t be overlooked, either. Create a striking look by pairing your tunic with tights in a complementing shade and you’ll be turning heads wherever you go.
2. Jeans Are A Jean-ius Idea
If you have a shorter tunic, it’ll look great popped over a pair of your fave skinny jeans. Perfect for a day in the office when a tee and jeans just feels too plain. Our top tip is to choose a tunic with some eye-catching detailing, such as pretty buttons or embroidery, to elevate your outfit one step further.
There’s always the option to pair a longer tunic with slim fit jeans using the half-tuck technique too. This one’s simple to pull off and super effective - just tuck the front of your tunic into your jeans to create a dipped hem look for a trendy vibe.
3. Rest A-Short, Your Look Will Make A Big Impact
One of our favourite looks for warmer days. But how can you wear a tunic with shorts? It’s simple. Cotton or denim shorts look fab with the tunic tucked in at the waistline, giving you even more ways to wear your favourite tunic top!
Add a pair of comfy pumps or trainers to complete the laid-back look which is as perfect for a BBQ as it is a stroll along the shores.
4. Dress It Up
Can you wear a tunic as a dress? Of course you can! If your tunic is slightly on the shorter side, a pair of funky tights can help you to feel even more confident and comfortable when you step out. But your pretty tunic top will look great on its own too, possibly with a chunky belt around the waist to cinch you in and accentuate your figure. Pop on a pair of ankle boots or snazzy heels and you’ll be good to go for any special occasion.
5. Add Layers Of Style With Your Tunic
Your tunic top can be styled as a remarkable layering piece. Slip a short sleeve tunic on over a plain t-shirt or long sleeve top and trousers ensemble to add cosy warmth and a pop of colour.
Layering works both ways, too. If you’re wearing a tunic and you’re starting to feel the chill, you can add a chunky knitted cardigan or jumper to bulk up your outfit and keep you warm throughout the evening.
Wild Card Style: Wearing Your Tunic With A Skirt
We often hear people ask if you can wear tunics with a skirt. Tunics with a shorter hemline teamed with a midi or maxi skirt can be a great look. Just make sure the layering seems intentional - the skirt’s hemline should fall below your tunic.
