White Tunic Dress

Nothing is easier or more fun than a good solid piece in your wardrobe that you can wear multiple ways. One of these pieces that every woman should have is your own version of a white tunic dress.  The white tunic dress is a great staple piece that gives you tons of options for pairing with leggings, shoes, boots, and accessories like belts and jewelry.  Tunics are a must have this season and a great versatile piece that works for multiple seasons and weather and when paired with accessories can be worn a number of different ways.

For a fun twist on the white tunic dress, try our Hunter Maldives Striped Tunic Dress from Velvet by Graham and Spencer. This dress plays into the nautical trend with its navy stripe detailing and fun off center V-neck. For summer this loose fitting dress would be perfect belted at the waist with a pair of fun wedges or sandals, but this piece can also transcend into the colder months by pairing it with jeans or leggings and an oversized sweater. Since it is looser, keeping it belted underneath the sweater would probably be best so that your shape is not lost just because you’re keeping warm!

Another great example of a distinctive great white tunic dress is the Variegated Stripe Loose Jersey Dress by Splendid.  This tunic length dress features a contrasting stripe in Quartz, a pink color.  The stripes are variegated or feature different widths.  This added detail gives good contrast and transforms this tunic dress into something distinctive and flirty.  The tunic dress also features a deep v neck in front and in back.  The front v neck is also accented by a tie at the base of the v neck.  This tunic dress is perfect as a dress and can also double as a swimsuit cover-up for your next beach vacation.

One very unique tunic that we are featuring is the Racerback Flared Tunic by designer Collective Concepts. This racerback tunic is a light grey color and is beautifully designed with a strap made of silver links and black beadwork. Its loose fit makes it perfect to wear as a dress, with leggings or tights for a dressier occasion in the summer and fall months. This lovely tunic could also work wonderfully for the colder months by adding skinny jeans or leggings (our Swoosie Knit Leggings or Jordan leggings both by Velvet by Graham and Spencer would be perfect!) underneath and throwing a nice cardigan or jacket over top.

As you can see there are a number of great ways to wear white tunic dresses and different styles as well.   Tunic dresses are becoming more and more popular in part because of the new style trend, but also because they are also versatile and can be worn literally year round when paired with leggings or worn with boots or over pants.  High boots are extremely popular this season and you can find cropped leggings or long leggings to go with any style of tunic dress.
