How to wear a tunic dress EVERYDAY ERRANDS

Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Between the school run, a day at work and the weekly shop, there can be little time to worry about what you’re going to wear. Save yourself five minutes in the morning by keeping a casual tunic dress (or three) hanging in your wardrobe. Just throw it on and go with straight leg jeans, ankle boots and a cardi if the weather takes a turn for the worst.

Style Tip:

Light and bright, a sleeveless tunic dress won’t slow you down and colourful patterns are ideal for spring. Simply drape a cardigan over your shoulders should it get a little nippy.

5 Flattering Tunic Tips

Keep your figure in proportion by pairing a voluminous, loose tunic with slim-fit trousers or leggings. It’ll balance your silhouette for a flattering effect.

V-neck and scoop-neck styles complement larger busts, while rounded, high-neck tunics look great on petite ladies.

Tunics with curved hems are flattering for everyone, but look particularly lovely on figures with fuller bottom halves.

Accentuate your waist with tunics that are nipped in at the middle. Alternatively, pull in a billowing tunic with a slim waist belt.

Want to cover your arms? Choose a long sleeve tunic in light fabrics – it will keep you cool and covered.
