A little black tunic from Mike & Chris
Everywhere I turn, there's always a fresh new take on the LBD vying for my attention. Like this sleeveless tunic by Mike & Chris in cupro twill--whatever that is, it looks soft, satiny, and ultra comfortable. Though the silhouette is fairly simple and loose, the delicately folded pleats and buttons down the front give it a stylish upgrade. Then there's the hem, of course, which instead of being boring and predictable is rather sexy and exposes a hint of leg. Something about the tunic's collar and buttons are slightly military-style, but the feminine hemline and fabric even it out. I envision the tunic with a skinny cinched belt to define your waistline and the perfect gladiator sandals--preferably in a bright, unexpected hue--for a breezy summer look.
