The Sexy, Sophisticated Appeal of a High Slit Tunic

When I think of a tunic, I think of a wardrobe must-have for comfort and versatility. Your girl loves a tunic too. You’ve seen me wear my chambray tunic and my white tunic with everything from shorts to skinny pants to jeans. I’ve never viewed tunics as sexy, though, that is, not until I tried a street-style favorite—the high slit tunic trend.

I found this striped tunic in a Ross store for under $25. Hidden deep in the racks, I was drawn to it because of the beautiful stripe pattern. When I took a closer look, I noticed the super high, side slit and knew immediately I wanted to try it on. It fit and had such a sexy but sophisticated vibe about it. I started envisioning all the bottoms I could pair with it, including my favorite white ankle pants.

A striking black and white print makes an ideal foundation for mixing prints. I imagined that my Chameleon Bags mud cloth clutch would pair well and was thrilled when it did.

I, then, thought that a pop of color would nicely accent all the black and white. For even more fun, I made that pop of color my floral pumps. And, just like that, this look became a print-on-print-on-print ensemble.
