Top 5 Tunics for Summer

The tunic is probably the most perfect garment ever created.  Although I'm partial to summer linen tunics, they're fun to wear all year in a myriad of pretty fabrics including cotton and silk.  At 5'4" on a good day, I'm also able to pull of many tunic styles as little mini-dresses.  Another one of my favorite looks for a tunic is to pair it with white jeans.

Tunics seem to camouflage any figure flaws around the tummy and are appropriate in almost any setting from pool to party.

So get ready to channel your inner Talitha Getty...

Here are my top 5 picks for summer tunics.

Guru's Palm Beach Linen Tunic is available as a dress or traditional tunic.  The orange linen fabric is outlined with bright pink and white piping.  Surprisingly, this fabulous tunic is machine washable!

Devon Baer's Ginger Blouse is a refreshing twist on the traditional tunic.  I love the stand up ruffle collar and side vents.

The Ricky Rack Tunic from Gretchen Scott has pretty ric rac detail at the neckline, side vents, and cuffs.  So pretty in navy.

Since I am fairly petite, sometimes traditional tunics seem to overwhelm my frame.  The Virginia Tunic from Jules Reid in Sea Green Cotton hits just at the hip and is incredibly flattering.  I love to wear my Jules Reid tunics with jeans!  Very Palm Beach chic.

Of course, I couldn't make a list of my favorite tunics without including one of the season's best choices from Lilly Pulitzer.  The Sarasota Tunic is a perfect choice for any occasion.  The mandarin collar and pintuck details make this a winner.

Which of my top 5 tunic picks do you like the most?
