White Jacket: Topshop, Tunic: Forever 21, Plated belt: Fat Face, Bag: Zara, Jeans: Zara, Heels: Clarks
Don’t ask me an exact date but I am pretty certain that I had (back in the day) a spate of loving tunics. In fact if I still felt it was safe to wear leggings all the time I probably would still be wearing tunics!
One thing I realise about tunic wear is that I probably shouldn’t wear them. As an apple shape you don’t really want to draw attention to your top half and instead you actually want to balance out your heavy top with a flashy bottom (or the like). However with all the good intentions or rules in the world sometimes you just want to hide away and a tunic does that for me.
Now I bought this top from Forever 21 when I went back in May? For my Spring Summer capsule shop and I almost didn’t buy it. I had one chambray shirt already and I had at the time tried to be good and minimise my chambray input but as ever this top one out and here we are with the cutest top in the whole world! I only have a small sinking feeling that this was actually being sold as a dress but oh well I will deal.
Now I could have obviously cowered with this unbelted but when it came to it I realised that no I actually should belt this! I should embrace the belt, in the long run it will all be worth it! This belt in particular is another triumph since I bought it on sale in January from Fat face! I love the braided detailing which I feel goes really great with the simplicity of this top!
I have to say I really think that adding a bit of structure to a tunic is certainly the way to go. I have worn the full on loose fit ones before but nothing quite compares to giving yourself a good pulling together! What’s the verdict are tunics the way or are they a no go fashion backtrack?
