Tunics are back in a big way

You've seen everyone from Kareena Kapoor and Dia Mirza to Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra strut around in the one ensemble that has caught the fancy of fashionistas and collegians alike. The tunic has survived the extremely cold winter and is here to stay well into the coming spring. They can be worn by themselves or on slim fit jeans, flared formal trousers, black leggings or even metallic skirts.

If you are planning to wear a floral print tunic, go in for one in light or pastel shades. You could team this up with a pair of skinny jeans and bring out your favourite pair of wedges. A satin or chiffon tunic can be paired with wide-legged trousers and a nice broad belt. This look works best for a business party.

College goers usually love to team their tunics with leggings, especially when the top ends much above the knee. Ankle length boots go well with this fashion. For the majority of others who prefer going solo with the tunic, there are different styles one could opt for.

Go in for bright colours like electric blue, bright yellow, deep purple or a rich red. Black is always a favourite. As far as fabrics are concerned, you could go in for flowing materials especially for an evening do. Stick to cottons for a more casual look.

Backless, one shoulder, full sleeved, tunics come in all possible cuts and styles so choose one that accentuates your best features. Slingbacks, ballerina shoes and flat gladiator sandals go best with this attire. Don't forget your oversized bag and sunglasses. You could go bling with your accessories. Huge beaded necklaces are in vogue. However, if you wear a button down tunic, a knitted one or something that has a collar, keep the jewellery to a bare minimum.

Tunics are in demand particularly because they hide body flaws like flabby hips and a paunch. Considering, the tunic has been designed for every woman, go get yourself one. All you need to do is pick one that complements your body shape and then carry off your new look with oodles of confidence!
