Wearing a tunic dress as a top | Bold red + black

A quick note that there is still time to enter my holiday GIVEAWAY for a chance to win your own teeth whitening kit!

This is the second time this fall that I’ve worn my black full skirt to turn a tunic into a top. Back in October, I tucked my newly thrifted paisley top into this black knit skirt; this time, I wore this skirt over my red + black tunic dress. The bold red + black color combination of this outfit also looks subtly holiday-appropriate, as we get closer to the Christmas holidays and the official start of the winter season.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison of how I’ve worn this tunic dress:

I didn’t get too fussy with this outfit, as the bold color scheme and graphic print do so much work on their own. I belted the skirt with a red skinny belt, and I wore red lipstick to keep the focus up top. The bottom of this outfit is all black, including my new black Spanx leggings as tights!

It was quite cold that day, and I was very warm in my tunic and skirt layers, as well as the leggings. And this skirt from eShakti continues to be a VIP in my closet. It’s warm and comfortable (and machine-washable, thanks to it being knit), and its classic shape will never go out of style! Plus, pockets!

It was also quite windy that day, and as the series of photos below visually demonstrates!
