Tunics Over Pants
There's a multitude of ways to wear the tunic, but the fundamentals of this look are simple and unfussy. The Row and Alberta Ferretti showcased the style using a streamlined, monochrome palette; while the former teams a delicate halter-style top with sheer, wide-leg pants, the latter's diaphanous Top ($995, 310.652.9000) is contrasted with tailored, cropped Pants ($885, 310.652.9000) and pointy-toe Shoes ($620, 310.652.9000).
Monochrome is not the only way to go, however. Mara Hoffman's Applique Shirt Dress ($275) in Navy features a busy, intriguing pattern that's balanced by crisp Slouch Pants ($242) in Vanilla. On the other hand, at Christian Dior, Creative Director Raf Simons paired black Shorts ($680, 800.929.DIOR) and Pumps ($760, 800.929.DIOR) as the perfect foil to the voluminous fabric of a color-blocked Dress ($5000, 800.929.DIOR).
The look is unquestionably breezy and summery, but we've adapted it so that it's suitable for a creative work environment, or when paired with the right accents, a night out. Start with a tunic in a versatile hue, like BCBGMaxazria's Cyprien Asymmetrical Top ($168). In order to contrast the top's billowing proportions and accentuate your waistline, making it flattering for all figures, pair the tunic with Theory's fitted Viviette Cotton Blend Blazer ($395) for shape and structure.
Smarten up the ensemble with pieces that don't distract from the flowing silhouette, like Gryphon's slim, cropped Xander Pants ($450, similar styles available here) and Mia's Bennett Heels ($69) in Black Snake. Finally, if you're dressing for a night on the town, add a hint of glamour with Stella & Dot's Petra Fringe Earrings ($59), and you're set to go!--Tiffany
