A sleeveless tunic is a fantastic contemporary take on the classic kurti. These tops are slightly loose and end at the waist. Unlike the kurti, they do not have any slits at the sides and can be worn as regular tops with jeans. These tops are designed on the basis of Indian aesthetics which means that they have interesting Indian prints as well as embroidery work done on them. It is a great combination of a take on the western t-shirt as well as the Indian kurti, bringing together the two worlds with hardly any effort whatsoever. Sleeveless tunics are a fairly recent style of tops that have been introduced into the market and are extremely popular with younger women and young working professionals as it gives them the freedom to either pair it with Indian garments or western garments, letting them create a different ensemble every time they choose something to wear.
Sleeveless tunic tops can be made of almost any material or fabric as these tops are meant to be loose and comfortable, which is why there isn’t much of a restriction on the overall shape of the outfit. More often than not, cotton is the preferred fabric as it provides just that. A sleeveless tunic top is mostly worn during the summer months as it is part of the summer collection of Indian ethnic clothes. However, this same style of tops can be worn in early winter or spring when it is purchased in a design that has full sleeves. One of the biggest advantages of a sleeveless tunic dress is that it allows a lot of freedom for movement, which is ideal for women who have to commute a lot during their day or stay on the go as a part of their daily schedule. This, out of most of the popular Indian garments, is the least fussy garment to don.
A black sleeveless tunic is ideal for a semi formal event or party during the evening and is one of the few garments that can be worn as a garment that’s meant to be worn to a party straight after work. A white sleeveless tunic, on the other hand, can also be worn to work or for day based events that are semi formal. Various working professionals choose to wear this garment because not only does it look great, it does so without looking far too dressed up for office wear. Another advantage of this is that this is considered to fall under semi formal and formal categories of clothing which is also why it is appropriate for work as well. A sleeveless tunic blouse with lace or net work can be worn for a casual brunch with friends or an evening with a social group. Thus, this is a garment that can be worn almost anywhere for almost any type of occasion or purpose without looking inappropriate or a misfit.
Styling Sleeveless Tunic Tops
Sleeveless tunic dresses can be easily worn with a variety of other garments to create different types of looks. For instance, in order to create a slightly ethnic look, a long sleeveless tunic can be paired easily with a salwar which is either of the same color as the tunic or a different, yet complementary color altogether. This can create different visually striking looks as individual salwars with different prints or colors can be purchased from store or online portals and then mixed and matched with a women’s sleeveless tunic to create a different look every time it is worn.
When creating a slightly more western look, sleeveless tunics for women can be paired with either well fitting jeans or colorful leggings to create a fitted Indo western look that will just look fantastic. This look is appropriate for the work place as well as in a casual setting. Furthermore, most leggings are usually made of lycra which stretches to fit different body types and thus, they are usually available in free sizes and in a variety of color and prints. Women can also choose to go for color blocking by pairing leggings in bright, vibrant prints with colorful sleeve less tunics. Monochrome jewelry can beautifully complete this kind of attire.
Both looks can be accessorized with the help of light Indian jewelry such as intricate rings, simple necklaces and complementary hoop earrings to create a slightly casual yet elegant look altogether. Many women also wear bangles along with their outfits to create a visually striking effect. Ladies sleeveless tunic tops look great with different types of footwear such as v shaped flat shoes as well as high heeled shoes.
