ModernGear Women: Tunics and Caftans

Have you ever been struck by the actual sensation of love, for a garment or a silhouette? Well, I heart tunics and caftans. Can't get enough of 'em. That's it, right there, hands down, what I am supposed to be wearing, and what I love wearing.

Blake Lively recently wore one in Southampton, N.Y., while shooting an episode of hit television show Gossip Girls:

This is definitely a favourite summer look for me. Maybe having a few too many martinis poolside in Palm Springs, or relaxing on the deck of a yacht in Cap D'Antibes, or shoot, hanging around my house writing blog posts...this is my favourite of favourites. And THESE are my my favourite-est...yeah I know that's not a word...

And is it just me, or would this Banana Republic BR Monogram puff-sleeve chain link dress not have been so much better as a tunic?
