Styled: The Diaphanous Tunic (no jeans)

Anthropologie at ShopStyle

One last post on the Diaphanous Tunic (now $40) -- this post is pulling double-duty for Bronzi who asked for a look for the tunic that doesn't include skinny jeans and as a recent OOTD for me.

This is more or less the outfit I wore on Christmas morning. The Diaphanous Tunic looks great over a slip to create a dress plus outfit. I did have a belt on over the tunic as I find the flimsy excuse for a ribbon that the tunic came with absolutely useless. To me the key is picking a slip that is neutral, not black or too bright pink to compete with the tunic. And I figured what's a few extra ruffles among friends? I don't know that I'd wear the Plaza Cardigan out over the tunic, but for opening presents it totally worked.

In this outfit:
Diaphanous Tunic (now $40)
Plaza Cardigan ($128)
Bertie Chemise ($48)
Straight Story Boots ($218)
Opaque Tights ($13)
Kinetic Necklace ($38)
Urchin's Shell Earrings (now $10)

I'm trying to find the tunic in a 4 if anyone sees it! Blue or pink. My store only had sz 10 left ( Milwaukee, wi).

I love the idea of pairing a longer "dress" underneath a tunic instead of the expected leggings or jeans :) I think this is a nice, feminine look!

Love the colors together... saw that chemise in store a few weeks ago and I love it. It's really well made, substantial fabric and nice & long. Hope it makes it to sale soon!

I got the diaphanous tunic on sale and love it. I found a slip at Target that is the perfect length to wear under it. I have also been wearing it with the tie that it came with. I find the tie works fine for me. I haven't worn this yet as a dress, but will have to give it a try.
