The slim-fit boot-cut pant is so not obsolete and can be worn with lots of different tops. The tunic top may not be one you jump to immediately, but it totally works. Whether you’re heading to the office, just a day of shopping or a night out on the town, a tunic and slim boot-cut pant is an excellent ensemble choice, with a few key ways to pull it off to fit each occasion.
Because your jeans are mostly slim-fitted in the leg with a bit of a flare for a boot at the bottom, you can wear a tunic top out as you would with skinny jeans or leggings. That is, you can throw it on and rock it hanging over your jeans. A tunic T-shirt, blouse or sweater will look fantastic this way as long as your tunic is the right length for your body. Stylist Adam Glassman advises that shorter woman should wear a tunic that hits at their hip while taller woman can wear tunics as long as their mid thigh.
If you’re worried about totally losing your shape under your tunic top, even with your slim-cut pants, you can throw on a belt at your waist or your hips. This will hug you in one spot and create the fashionable, womanly shape that you’d otherwise be hiding. Get creative with your belt and show off your personality. Try a thin leather one, a rhinestone-studded version or even use a long necklace for some extra swagger.
Another way to pull off this look is to tuck your tunic into the waist of your pants. You will be creating a normal-length top here with some extra volume. This looks great if your slim boot-cut pants are high-waisted or hip huggers and any height in between. If you feel there is too much tunic fabric, the trick is to tuck your shirt in all the way, then pull out the excess so it hangs over your waist while staying tucked.
With a Sweater/Jacket
If you want to wear your tunic over your slim boot-cut pant as is, but desire some extra shape on top, try a structured blazer or a fitted cardigan. This will pull in your shirt and show your gorgeous figure, but add a depth to your outfit with another fashionable layer.
