Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. This column will focus on one piece per week, and teach you how to take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.
A great tunic top can take a girl far. Not only are tunics perfect layering pieces, they’re also appropriate in nearly every situation you can find yourself in. From lounging around the dorm to making leggings a little more class-appropriate, tunics are undeniably a college girl’s closet’s best (and most versatile) friend. Best of all, you can wear them day or night.
This week, I’ll be showing you how to take a basic, long-sleeved gray tunic and wear it from Chem lab on to a wild night out with friends – all you need is a quick styling change.
Tunic Top: Class
Create your day look by layering your tunic over basic black leggings. Though they’re both super simple, these two pieces combine to create a classic but casual silhouette. Two-toned riding boots both battle harsh weather and add to a classic campus look. To keep from looking too bland, add a funky feathered necklace and cool, complementary earrings. A fun graphic tote keeps you looking casual and helps you lug around your heavy books in style!
Tunic Top: Night Out
For a night out look, either keep your basic leggings from class or switch to a (faux) leather pair to take the look to the next level. Liquid leggings might seem like a risky choice, but the tunic provides all the coverage necessary for you to look like a total rockstar and avoid any embarrassing fashion moments. Cinch in this killer look with a leopard print belt and add some cool stud earrings for an even wilder vibe. Rocker-style ankle booties amp up the rock & roll factor, and a vibrant cross-body bag provides a much-needed pop of color to complete the look.
