RAGS TO RICHES: Something about this tunic isn’t quite romantic. And we like it like that. Its floating layers of chiffon are countered by unstructured ruffles, a pretty gathered neckline contrasts with its uneven hip-length hem. Paired with distressed cut-offs and strappy platforms, it would take on a distinctive edge. On the other hand, layers of gilded vintage-inspired jewelry and lace tights would add just a touch of sweetness. It all depends on your mood, and chances are, you’ll never wear it the same way twice. GET IT: Frill Sleeve Chiffon Tunic, $80. Available online from Topshop USA.
