Black and White Tunic

Signature Look


I have said before that a tunic and leggings is one of my signature looks. Since it’s still warm, I’m wearing my tunic with my capri leggings but I’m planning on wearing it with my regular leggings in the fall. The black/white tunic I’m wearing here is another early birthday present I received in Germany. Yes, I did get a lot of birthday presents!

I like that it is made of black/white and white/black fabric (it took me a moment to figure this out…). I think the two fabrics make for a more interesting look.

Transitioning a Tunic into Fall


I wore the tunic with a thin, black cardigan in the evening when it got a bit cool. I can also see myself wearing it with a denim jacket - white or blue. The tunic would also work over white or black skinny jeans with some cute boots, which have been on my “list” of items to get for a long time.

Silver Lace-Up Flats


I also wore my silver lace-up flats that I got for 50% off the sale price (which was already very low) at Banana Republic. I had wanted to get some lace-up flats for a long time, but I wasn’t sure what color to get. I also have been eyeing different silver shoes for a while. So when I saw these lace-ups, I found the best of both worlds.

I found the flats when I went shopping with my older son for his birthday. He commented they were so cheap, it was okay if I wore them only once. I told him that no, that would not be okay. Because if I only wore them once they wouldn't be a bargain, and I wouldn’t choose to buy them. The flats are comfortable, and I know I will wear them a lot this fall. I hope that the cost per wear will be only pennies, and that I get lots of wears out of them...

  1. I've only started wearing tunics now that I've been blogging---and I think they are great (it makes me wonder what took me so long?).
    I love your silver shoes---I can't believe how versatile my silver sneakers have been, so I bet you experience the same thought---they just go with everything!
    It's a black & white theme recently---great minds, you know?

    1. Yes, tunics are wonderful, aren't they? It's funny how blogging opens our eyes to things we never considered before...

      Black & white is such a classic and can be changed up in so many fun, new ways.

  4. That's a very beautiful tunic, very different with the fabrics the other way round in the other half! And what a lovely necklace, love the colors. Is the back of the tunic also half/half? I can't see it on my phone.

  6. That is a beautiful tunic and I can see it going so well into cooler weather! :)

    I'm the same as you with the shoes - I like bargains but I like getting lots of wear from them too no matter how much they are!

  17. I was wondering about what you said about the colour and then, at a closer sight I realised that the tunic has two different prints! Really cute ... as well as the silver flats!!

  21. I love leggings, but I have a hard time finding tunics long enough for my style. Maybe I can find some this Fall.

    1. Yes, it can be challenging to find tunics that are long enough. I hope you'll find what you are looking for!

  22. Love that this is your signature look!! I actually don't normally wear tunics.. Having long legs, long torso.. I feel that always hit weird on me.. But that's just me! You look fantastic. My signature look would probably be a leggy dress with black booties ;)

  26. Andrea, I don't think we can go wrong with a signature style of tunics and leggings, you just proved this once again. That tunic is fabulous and yes, you certainly did get a LOT of presents (but well deserved). I'm looking forward to fall coming so I can once again get my leggings and tunics out.
