With tunics being so popular this season, it’s easy to focus on the chic, global or otherwise trendy looks. However tunics can also have a classic and sophisticated appearance. Luxury fabrics such as cashmere and silk offer warmth as well as superior softness and comfort. Many of these fabrics can even be hand washed cutting down dry cleaning costs. These fabrics are flattering, drape beautifully and can easily go from office to dinner. Neutral colors such as ivory and taupe give the ensemble a simple yet elegant look.

If a casual appearance is preferred, select lounging pants or leggings. Accessories should be a metal of choice such as gold or silver. An earthy look can be achieved by adding leather with metal accessories such as a silver pendant on a leather necklace. Simple and complimentary handbags complete the outfit. A scarf either worn in the hair or casually around the neck adds a bit of detail without going overboard.

If a business casual look is better suited, slacks without pleats are perfect. Palazzo pants also work very well for a classic look. These are slacks or pants that are form fitting at the waist, hip and upper thigh with the legs becoming wider. They are neither bell bottoms nor flares. Usually, palazzo pants are made of stretchy or forgiving fabric making them very comfortable. High heels in any height work for most slacks and the tunic ensemble is no different. Accessories can usually be a bit bolder due to the simplicity of the outfit.

An evening look can easily be achieved  by adding a bit of sparkle to the outfit. Monochromatic themes with a punch of metallic contrast work best for a semi-dressy look. This can be done with adding a gold or silver scarf, matching high heeled shoes and jewelry. It’s that simple.

Using tunics for creating a classic look can be very simple. They are versatile enough to take you from the office, to errands to dinner. Tunics can even keep you in luxury while lounging around the house. With tunics being this year’s hottest fashion trend, it’s easier than ever to find one perfect for that classic look.
