"Tunic"- How Would YOU Style This?

From J. Crew-

 

 

Every vacation (and hot-weather day, for that matter) calls for a gauzy button-up tunic in gingham.

  • Cotton.
  • Three-quarter sleeves.
  • Functional buttons at cuffs.
  • Machine wash.
  • Import.
  • Online only.
  • Item F0824.

Here it is in pink (final sale).  

  • Item G2157.

Reviews are mixed, largely I think because people don't know what to do with it.  They call it a tunic, but it's super long. 

 

Is it a dress?

Is it a beach cover up?

Is it loungewear?

First thing ... I'd shorten it to mid-thigh length.

I would wear it as a dress.  Belt it and pair with espadrilles, both in white canvas.   I think it's way too long as a tunic.  It could be used as a night shirt, but it probably wouldn't be comfortable with the close fitting arms and buttons.

Hum....taking another look, it's see through.  You'd need to wear like Capri leggings under it.  It's not a very versatile piece of clothing.

White leggings, full length because of the length of the top. Tank top, same color as check, or white.

Geez, I don't know. I'd probably have to take a pass at this.  😊

I"d wear it to bed. It looks like a sleep shirt.

The only thing I would use it for is a beach coverup.  Looks like that was what it was intended for.
