Question: I’ve been thinking about buying a scoop-neck tunic dress but worried that I may end up looking frumpy. How can I make it work for me?

Answer: The floaty shirred tunic dress is super modern when layered and paired with the right accessories. For a more polished daytime look, try a soft filmy bow blouse underneath and belt it with a thin polished leather belt, over an ultra-wide trouser. Wear an ankle strap platform heel to give you extra height. For a modern evening look, sport a colourful tank underneath, pair with a slim or skinny jean and belt with a wide liquid metallic belt. Give it an eighties spin with a sexy, neutral-toned stiletto heel. Check out the following for great tanks and blouses: Banana Republic, Zara, George C., Aritzia. For great accessories try H&M, Holt Renfrew, Brave, Hyde, and Over the Rainbow.
