1 Metallic Tunic, 3 Ways Image by: Genevieve Caron
Do you think sparkle should be reserved for evenings? With help from the right extras, our #WeTheCurvy columnist, Meredith Shaw, shows us how to get our shine on—even when the sun is up!
Think of an extraordinary moment in your life. Do you know what could have made it a bit more magnificent? Donning something dazzling. Clothing that’s sequined or tinged with metallic doesn’t mean you’re craving attention; it means you like dressing up—and that’s OK! In fact, it’s fabulous.
The Silver Tunic
We love this Joseph Ribkoff tunic (sizes 14 to 22) from Toni Plus for its ombré metallic detailing and versatile length.
Turn this brilliant tunic up a few watts with the addition of a tulle skirt. If tulle
is too girlie for your esthetic, try a circle skirt in a structured material. Put the exclamation point on this look by stepping out in a Cinderella-style shoe, like these glittery flats.

There’s no shorter path to great style than skilfully combining unexpected things. It might seem unusual to pair a glittery top with jeans and a field jacket, but it works.

One of the major benefits of high-shine clothing is that it speaks for itself. Team this tunic with fitted black slacks and chic loafers to easily transition from office cubicle to office party. Metallic fabrics show your curves, which is a very good thing—just make sure your shape is on point with a smoothing bra.
