It's a trick I've shared before - using your beaded tunics and swim cover-ups as a shirt for more occasions than just the pool. It creates a pretty neckline (no statement necklace needed!) and utilizes your tunics year-round. To make this trick work, try it with skirts that are thick and have some wiggle room and/or are loose. Shapes like full or pleated do an even better job at hiding the tunic underneath, and the thinner the tunic is, the better. (Note: today's tunic is lined and thick. Perfect for hiding a swim suit underneath, but not necessarily the best option for wearing a skirt over it.) Have you ever tried this trick?
