I think most hijabis would agree that tunics are a really good, modest option for the summer. They’re long, and you can find thin ones with long sleeves. They also don’t need much accessorizing. Just throw on a pair of linen pants or jeans and a tunic over that. If you get colorful ones, it’s a really easy option for casual or formal events.
Plus, we’ve all taken short dresses and made them into makeshift tunics.
I was really excited when Topshop opened in Chicago. I always hear good things about the London-based store.
This tunic from the store is very cute summer option.
This one from H&M totally puts you in the summer/beach mood.
This one is cute to wear under a jacket or light sweater for a more dressy occasion.
