If you’ve been outside lately, you’re probably aware that summer is here! We know, we know, summer doesn’t officially start until late June, but this is Texas! And as Texans, we know that summer starts in April and lasts until Thanksgiving. One of the biggest challenges women face when it comes to surviving those scorching summer days is finding a wardrobe that is both comfortable and breathable. Enter: the tunic.
Thin cotton, excellent coverage, and endlessly fabulous, we declare the tunic your new summertime best friend. SampleHouse has tunics in many different designs and colors, as well as five fun tips on how to wear them. Hopefully they’ll save you some sweat this summer.
Perfect at the Beach or Pool
Tunics are a clever bikini cover-up, whether you’re spending the summer in the city poolside or escaping to the beach. Once you’re done dipping, grab a tunic and settle into your pool chair, confident with the knowledge that your bright, colorful tunic looks much more gorgeous over your tan than a cartoon-themed towel ever could.
With White Shorts
All of our tunics come in bright, bold colors with beautiful patterns and accents. Nothing says summer style like a pop of color against some white shorts. Couple that with some sparkly sandals and your golden tan, and you just won best dressed! Good work!
Dress It Up
Daring! If you’re feeling especially bold and happen to need an outfit for the night, a tunic (of appropriate length) can double as a fun, flirty dress. A scarf, some heels and a great bag will make you the center of attention, and not because you’ve sweated through your sweater dress. Texas is HOT, even at night! Dress accordingly!
Dress It Down
Chaperoning a group of little ones on a trip to Six Flags or the zoo? Some flip-flops and a floppy boho hat can take your tunic to a breezy, casual level. If you’re on the tall side, grab some shorts for some extra insurance. The soft, breezy fabric and arm coverage will ensure you don’t get burned and will stay rather comfortable while petting the llamas.
Are you lucky enough to be leaving the hot zone for a few days? Are you going to a place that got the memo that it’s supposed to cool down when the sun goes down? Lucky you! Even if you’re simply going to the movies just for the A/C, tunics look great with leggings. Most leggings are super thin and still comfortable, and pair perfectly with some flats and your favorite tunic. Dress this look up or down for a night inside.
No matter the occasion, a tunic is always stylish for summer. Pick up one (or three) in bright colors and patterns at SampleHouse!
