How to Wear It
If you want to show off your fabulous legs, wear your tunic as a dress. Add a heel to take it out at night or slip on a pair of ballet flats or sandals to pull it off during the day. Because of the nature of the tunic, it's really easy to dress up or dress down, so keep it casual, or make it really glam with lots of accessories, a clutch and a fantastic pair of shoes.
Take It to the Beach
Looking for a new beach cover up? The tunic is a perfect fit. It slips easily on over your swimsuit while still looking incredibly stylish. Plus, since it's flowing and short, you won't have to worry about getting hot or uncomfortable in it. It'll slip on easily and keep you looking and feeling great all day.
As a Shirt
If you're feeling a little more modest, try your tunic as a shirt. Wear it over a pair of leggings to still get some of the fun of wearing a dress without the commitment of really exposing your legs. Add a pair of boots and you're all set. Or, try your tunic with a pair of skinny jeans. Since tunics are generally loose-fitting, they tend to look baggy with wide-leg pants so stick to skinny or straight leg bottoms.
