Happy Wednesday ladies. I wandered into my local Chico’s earlier this week and was surprised to find it pretty bare. Their website is loaded with great things and the gals were bringing new merchandise out from the back so I’ll go back later for a try-on session. I did spot this mannequin who was wearing a very wearable outfit, but it’s not one that would flatter me at 5’4″ so I played with some options.
This tunic is a gorgeous shade of cranberry (also available in olive). It’s not available in petite and even if it was, its shape can often overwhelm shorter women so I played with some styling options. Some worked, others not so much:)
First, I tried it open over this navy tank top, tied in front. I don’t know about you, but this isn’t working for me. The side slits allow me to just tie up the front, but it feels like there’s too much going on with this look.
On the right, I let the tunic hang open and added a faux croc belt to the jeans. To this, I would add a longer pendant necklace like this or this layering necklace, and wear navy suede booties like this.
So what are your thoughts? Would you try this look?
How would you style it and what footwear would you wear?
Please be descriptive so we can all get some styling ideas.
