Not quite a shirt, not quite a dress, a tunic (or three!) is the perfect clothing piece to add to your closet for the new spring season. From edgy, printed designs to simple and flattering colours, these six tunics will help you transition from your drab winter wardrobe to something more fun and relaxed!
Edgy printed tunic blouse
Feel classy yet casual in this flowing emerald-green tunic (zara.com, $50), which features a cool Aztec-inspired pattern and string tie neck. With its warm colour combination and sheer material, this is the perfect transitioning piece to take you from cold weather to spring-like temperatures. Layer a black silk tank with this top for the optimal chic look.
Pins-and-needles chiffon tunic
Nothing says spring more than a flirty V-neck tunic. Yes, this printed tunic (urbanoutfitters.com, $59) might seem very simple, but the black polka dot pattern and asymmetrical-cut bottom give this top a feminine flair that’s sure to spice up any outfit. Pair it with just about any bottom but especially with skinny jeans or black leather tights.
Ditsy leopard print tunic
No matter the season, you can never go wrong with prints. Never. This playful leopard print tunic (forever21.com, $28) is the perfect piece for the fashion forward who love to wear their animal prints. This edgy tunic is perfect under a light spring jacket (think denim), and the scoop neckline and racerback will flatter any body type.
Evil Twin Outer Limits mesh tunic
Transport yourself to another galaxy… Featuring the popular space-inspired print we saw all over the catwalks last year, this mesh tunic (urbanoutfitters.com, $100) nails the trend with a scenic print that will leave you mesmerized, and you’ll fall in love with its loose, layered design.
Shoulder-zip tunic dress
If you’re looking for a simple, comfortable tunic, then this is the one to wear. Designed with American Apparel’s simple approach to clothing, this form-fitting cotton dress (americanapparel.net, $42) is casual enough to wear during the day but also appropriate for going out to dinner with friends. To make this tunic dress reflect your own style, pair it with your favourite jewellery and accessories.
Wilfred Vis-à-vis sweater
Since Canadian winters usually last longer than we like them to, you may not be able to dive into short sleeves right away. Enter this airy, slouchy turtleneck (aritzia.com, $135), which will keep you warm but also prepare you for the approaching thaw. Made with a blend of silk, cotton and cashmere, this top will make you feel cozy and want to touch your shirt all day long.
