This Oprah-Approved ‘Truly Versatile Shirt’ Just Got a Warm-Weather Upgrade

When it comes to life advice, there’s one person we can always turn to: Oprah. Whether she’s cluing us in on the next big foodie trend or introducing us to our new cookware obsession, she always hits the mark right on the bullseye. This is why we love to pay close attention to her Favorite Things lists that drop every year during the holidays. Here, she gives dozens of recommendations on all things fashion, beauty and lifestyle. And this is how we discovered one of the most flattering tops of all time: the Chico’s tunic.

In 2018, Oprah included a white and black version of the top in her Favorite Things list, writing: “Can you have too many white shirts? Maybe, but it’s still worth making room for this black-trimmed, chic-all-over number. It could win fashion MVP in any woman’s closet.”

MVP is right.

This top has a where-anywhere on any occasion style to it that looks flattering on any and all body types. The flowy draping is crafted with lightweight linen, making it ideal for hot summer days. Plus, Chico’s has perfected the no-wrinkle design, so you don’t have to whip out the iron before you want to wear this coveted top.

Lucky for us, the brand put a summery spin on their adored tunics by adding a bunch of patterned and linen ones to their selection. It’s like they know we’re on the hunt for warm-weather tops! Below, check out some of our favorite Oprah-approved tunics that will look good from the office to the tarmac. Each style is under $120 and worth every penny, according to shoppers.
