girl in fall outfit (400x400)Maybe you have a muffin top, or you’ve gained 15 pounds, or you’ve recently had a baby. A tunic top, with its relaxed shirt style, has you covered for all of these figure-challenging issues. You’re guaranteed to look casual and elegant in a tunic shirt. There are so many pretty and affordable tunic tops to choose from this season but remember, the key to success when you wear a tunic top is its length. If you’re pear-shaped or curvy, you’ll never want the hem of a tunic top to end right at the widest part of your thighs because it’ll make them look 10 lbs. heavier, so be sure to wear a tunic top shorter or longer than your widest thigh point.

The top comes in deep plum, is available in sizes six through 3X, and retails for $19.99.
