Gretta's Got It: Tunics
When it comes to your wardrobe sometimes all you need is one perfect piece. Tonight, our style reporter Gretta Monahan shows you how to get more bang for buck with one of this season's hottest trends in Gretta's Got It.
WSVN -- Do you have a favorite season staple? Well, stop wearing it one way. I'll show you how to get three different looks with one piece. One of the hottest trends this season is the tunic, and celebs can't seem to get enough of this hip trend.
Katie Fessler: "What celebrity isn't wearing this style?"
Gretta Monahan: "That's because it's comfortable and cute, but, the truth is, they can be tricky."
Katie Fessler: "The number one complaint I hear everyday is that people feel like they are wearing maturity."
Gretta Monahan: "So to prove that it's not, I am putting the tunic to the test. Our first look, we'll call the trend-setting casual."
Gretta Monahan: "So, this look is everyday casual. I love this because you can easily go work to play, and it's easy pieces you already own. We paired the tunic with straight leg jeans, a cardigan, gladiator flats and a long medallion necklace to tie the whole look together.
Gretta Monahan: "And if you think you can't wear a tunic as a dress, check out this fun and flirty look. Using that same tunic, we put a fun summer dress under it. This gives you a longer hemline and added length. Long strands of pearls, chandelier earrings to match, a small fun clutch and hot heels."
Gretta Monahan: "So our tunic is transformed into a perfect summer dress great for any party you have on the schedule. If you are working for the weekend our third tunic transformation is for you. What I love about this casual look is that it works for any age. To get the look we pulled on a fitted white T under our tunic, pulled on some black bermuda shorts, tossed on a straw tote and slid into some gold flip-flops. Add bold summer accessories, and this look becomes weekend chic."
Gretta Monahan: "So it's easy to see to get three different looks with just one piece. The tunic is a trend that's here to stay, so invest in one piece, and stretch your style. I'm Gretta for Gretta's Got It."
