The Tunic: A Summer Staple

It may not even feel like spring yet for some of us, but I'm trying to encourage the season to arrive by trotting-out the tunics. By far my favourite item of clothing for summer, tunics are versatile, sophisticated, and universally flattering. The weather may not be allowing me to style them with the summery panache that I desire, but that doesn't mean a girl can't plan.

  1. A beautiful assortment of tunics. They truly are a spring/summer staple!

  2. These tunics look wonderful on you! You are inspiring me to think about tunics. I especially like the bright colored top. Your hair is so pretty.

  3. You've given me some ideas for tunics in my closet, and you look just gorgeous! I love the black and gold, and the Lily. Thanks for sharing these great looks with Visible Monday.

  4. Fantastic collection of tunics! I'm waiting to see a full body shot of that crazy Lilly-esque one (#2). Can you guess why?
    Also like the concept of the black/gold one over a bling skirt. And a black moto jacket -- yep, I can visualize that one on you now!

  5. Nice threads you've got there - I love a tunic, and yours are exceptionally beautiful. They are timeless and effortless and you look gorgeous, as usual, in yours!

  6. All about a cute tunic. You have some great tunics that look good on you. The colorful sleeveless tank is my favorite.

  7. Hey Kristin, One day I will have a Lilly in my closet. The tunic you are wearing is so bright and cheery. I just love her design sense, and her colour palette. I also love the Lilly that you have packed for your trip.

    Have a wonderful time on your holiday. Hopefully, spring will have blessed the highlands by the time you return!

  8. What a really well thought out post. Lots of content, a really useful guide, and some beautiful pieces as well! Love for you to check out my blog. xx

  9. What a great variety of tunics and options to wear them. I love the embroideries and the nice little pattern of the last one.

  10. What a lovely collection of tunics! I just thought I should let you know that you are not the only one that tries to convince Miss Sping to arrive in full bloom to Scotland! I would really like to see the cherry blossoms in the Meadows before I leave and goes back to Sweden.

  11. Inspiring and instructive. They'll take you from late spring through early fall, won't they? Great styling photos, as always. Proportions seems really important to consider, but just for shorties like me. You look effortlessly elegant. No wishfullness about it. You got it!

  12. I love your blog! It's great :) You are amazing! Feel free to my blog :)) Maybe, you follow my blog ? ♥ (If you like it)
    Kisses ♥♥♥

  13. Tunics are actually perfect for Dubai summer/spring. You are pairing yours perfectly and I love the one in the last picture the best.. so elegant!


    1. Every chance you'll actually see it! It's in the suitcase in the back if the car as I write this!

  14. Looking fabulous. Tunics become you. I agree the last tunic is darling.

  15. I love your lovely tunics. I agree that they can make any outfit. Elevates looks in warmer weather to a whole other level of chic. The embroidery on yours are stunning!


  16. Love ALL of these tunics! Seems like we have the same love of tunics, which I certainly didn't have an appreciation for when I was younger but have fully embraced. The ones you have found are fantastic, but the Lilly one is my favorite. Color is something I seem to be embracing more too :) See you soon!
