Personal Style [Lawyer Chic] A Slimming Tunic Changes Everything

Friday, July 20, 2012

Silk tunics are a working gal's bff (best fashion find). The slinky fabric is sexy and slimming, the billowy silhouette conservative enough to wear to work, and loose enough to cover up post-feast bloating.  Most importantly, silk tunics are amazingly versatile and an ideal day to night transition centerpiece.

This Line and Dot taupe tunic can be worn so many different ways! I've opted for a rather office appropriate look as it's cinched it with a belt and paired it with a cotton maxi skirt and attache-esque ShoeDazzle tote. But a few quick steps will transform the tunic into an eye-catching night on the town stunner. Simply lose the belt, add some tights (patterned or solid black), and swap out the espadrilles for skyscraping stilettos of any color as taupe is neutral enough to withstand the brightest and boldest of them all. Keep the tote as the proportion adds an unexpected fashion play to the outfit.

There are endless fashion options when it comes to tunics. How would you take it from day to night?
