The Winter Tunic for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Smart Version
Quote of the day: “Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” Denis Waitley
How can you take a tunic and make it fairly office appropriate? Of course, each individual office environment would dictate what would work or not, but here’s my go at it. And the quote above is quite appropriate, in my opinion. Maybe you never thought about wearing your tunic to work, but possibly if you try different combinations with it, you might have a great result and maybe start a new work style trend! Long ago when the weather was warmer, we wore different tunics for other occasions (see them starting here). For this set of posts, the three of us grabbed heavier pieces and styled them casually (here) and dressed them up (here).
50’s Tunic: I may not wear the poncho inside an office, but it’s a great way to cover up to get to the where I am going. I love the fact that this poncho is reversible from the dark brown to tan—it makes it so much more versatile.
60’s Tunic: A white collared blouse under Nancy’s tunic makes it seems quite smart, I think. We could have chosen pants that didn’t need cuffing if we wanted a more professional look.
70’s Tunic: I love the idea of layering a longer vest over the tunic. Conventional wisdom would have chosen blue accessories, but I really wanted more colors!
And here’s some in the cardigan version—all under $30 (My Facebook page has more for you to peruse—they are different ones so check them out!)
