2012 summer trend- tunics

by jani on June 30, 2012

Possibly my favorite look is a comfortable tunic over a pair of jeans. There’s just a nice airy feel to this Calypso St. Barth tunic with it’s embellished coral neckline. This is a great look, if like me, you’d like to cover the forever baby belly. I’d wear this look almost anywhere and feel chic!

I’ve always loved tunics – mainly because they’re just so comfy! If you have the tiny waist like I had in the 60s (yeah… that was long ago!), you can always add a fun belt. A few weeks ago while I was visiting the stylin’ city of Santa Fe, I saw all sizes of women wearing different styles of tunics. It’s a great look!


I will try to continue to post looks that will work for everyone of you – no matter your size. I’ve mentioned in my about post that I’m a full figured woman and a grandma. It doesn’t mean I have to look frumpy. If you feel beautiful on the inside, and each of us should, there will always be a light shining through to your outer beauty!
