To be honest, tunic is one of my favorite items, but also, to be honest, I don’t like styling tunic. Mostly because I’m a petite frame, and to wear a tunic is a hard task! I do love tunic, don’t get me wrong, but I still need to keep learning the best ways to style them. I just don’t want to be swallowed by the thing you know. When I wear a tunic badly (which I do too often), my proportion is just out of whack: where is my waist, where do my legs actually start and end? Everything of my body just seems lost under there.
So let me let you in on a huge secret! When I discovered this, it pretty much changed my life! One of my favorite things to look for in a tunic is the magical slit on the sides. Yes, this is an amazing feature you can find in some tunic pieces, and I will tell you why. You can now tuck in your long tunic in the front and leave the back side flowing. That way you don’t get lost under this top, and yet you don’t have to tuck in the whole shirt and defeat the purpose of a tunic. If you’re not a petite, well then, you can wear it however you like my dear, tuck or no tuck.
If you find any tunic with slits on the sides, please do share with me. I’m kinda obsessed with this style now.
