When I went out shopping for a new shirt last month, I was surprised by one of a peculiar shape. It looked like a circle skirt, with a seam halfway up each side to form separate sections for the body and arms. I was intrigued – the whole seemed flowing and light and summery, but when I tried it on I realized that there was absolutely no waist in the thing! (A major no-no.) Still, the concept seemed like it could work for me … with a few modifications, of course.

Made in a summery mesh with a cotton blend – and a waist – the Cilantro Summer Tunic adds major style to an outfit without much extra insulation.
