Description

Speaking of wardrobe staples - we love seemingly simple designs with a surprising detail that you can pair with anything and everything. With Solano, we’re proud to present a tunic that works both with and without sleeves: one version for colder days and another one to get you through those hot, hot summer nights.
Both versions get really exciting in the back: a v-neck with a box pleat add that little bit of interest that we love for basics! Sherwood Yarn’s BFL & Masham 4ply keeps you warm in the 3/4-sleeve version and Lino Muka linen helps you keep your cool in the sleeveless one.
