Fashionable Tunics Spring-Summer 2016
Initially, the tunic was a garment with a straight cut. Usually, this type of clothing does not have a collar, although the modern interpretation does not always follow this rule. Because of its universality and practicability, this garment is one of the most popular article of everyday life, especially if it’s a warm period. Tunics can be perfectly matched with pants, jeans, skirts, leggings, shorts, shirts and various tops. In addition, they can be worn without any other garments. Let’s see what tunics designs recommend us to wear renowned designers in the spring-summer season 2016.
The grunge style is in great demand not just one decade. This is very simply explained – this trend does not support the association with other current fashion trend. This does not mean anything other than fashionistas who prefer the grunge style can wear them without caring about their appearance or their matching. On the contrary, torn portions, raw hems, etc. these are currently actively used by designers to create modern outfits (Acne Studios, Ashish, Acne Studios, Marques Almeida). In addition, this style can be attributed to disproportionately clothes, carelessly thrown over one shoulder, designs with a seductive plunging neckline, that is worn dresses other clothes and also a manner of combining absolutely different styles.
