One Tunic, Two Outfits

In last week’s post, I proclaimed my love for tunics. It’s definitely one of my signature looks, and I love that I can wear a tunic pretty much year round here in California.

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by StyleWe and asked if I was interested in reviewing a piece of clothing from their site*. StyleWe* is a website that sells clothing from different up-and-coming designers. You can search clothing by designer or by category. I like that you can search all the different items of clothing from a designer you like.

I first browsed through a couple designers and really loved the unusual designs. Price points vary widely from about $30 for a tee to $1,000+ for some of the unique coats. Many items on the website are in the $70 - $150 range, and there often are flash sales where certain items are up to 40% or 50% off. Of course I quickly searched the tunics, and I was not disappointed. There are so many beautiful, unique options, and I had a hard time choosing just one piece. I would have had no trouble picking a whole new wardrobe from the site...

I ended up choosing a multicolored silk tunic*, and I am very happy with my choice. It arrived looking just like I had envisioned it from looking at the photos on the website. I did size up one size as I like my tunics quite loose.

Multicolored Tunic with Leggings

First I wore the tunic with my trusted leggings. This is not much of a new look, but I love that the tunic works so well with one of my favorite pieces of clothing.

Next I wore the tunic with white jeans. I really like this look, and it was also Andy’s favorite look.

I still love my silver lace up flats. They are so comfortable... 

Silver Lace Up Flats

I wore the tunic with white jeans and the silver lace-up flats when we hung out at Mission Creek Brewing Company in San Jose. Great place to grab a beer (or wine or cider or non-alcoholic beverage) and a bite to eat in San Jose!

I’m thinking of wearing the tunic open over a dress next as I’m determined to be more creative and adventurous when it comes to clothes...

Questions: When was the last time you styled one item different ways? Do you come up with new combinations frequently or do you tend do wear items in true and tried combinations? I have to admit that I’m not always as adventurous as I could be...

Be well,

  3. You love your tunics and I love your tunics, too. Especially like it with the white. Always appreciate a tunic with a little extra length in the caboose. And those silver "slippers". Fit for a princess. We are heading out to a Cork and Keg Fest today. Rediscovered a pair of pants in my closet that I haven't worn for awhile. Size 6 and they fit! Ha! Just want to remind you about Sentence a Day. Hope you are writing your sentences so you can link-up with us. I had forgotten to start again so had to write three sentences yesterday. Shhh! Don't tell.

  7. I love the bright colourway of the tunic you chose. My preference is for the second styling as I love white jeans with a long top and also those silver shoes are fabulous. Great look x

  8. The tunic is so eye-catching and looks fantastic with the white jeans. I can't wait to see how it looks over a dress. I do sometimes figure out multiple ways to style one item. It's always a fun project.

  20. The tunic over a dress should work Well! I am curious to see how exactly you will style It!
    Your today's combinations are both very nice on you. My favourite is the one with white leggings since they make ... a more summery look!

    1. Thanks, Dan! The tunic over the dress is only an idea in my head right now; we'll see how it'll turn out... :-)

      And, yes, the tunic with the white skinnies is a nice end of summer look. I think it'll also work well with dark skinnies and a dark cardigan in fall.

  26. Andrea,
    That tunic fits you to a tee, both in style and color palette. As to your closing question, I'm all about styling an item in multiple ways. It is one of the recurring themes for my link up. Thanks for joining last week's.

  29. Andrea, I love how the look of the tunic dramatically changes when paired with black vs. the white. That will keep this top so versatile. I think it will look adorable layered over a dress, too!
