Masai guide For some it’s a wardrobe basic, for others it’s a versatile piece, and for us here at Masai, the tunic is what it’s all about! The tunic is a big part of our DNA as well as a playground for our designers. We design prints with the tunic in mind, as well as making sure that all our pieces go well with it.
The tunic is not a dress
The shape of the Masai tunic is inspired by the Indian kurta and designed to be shorter than a dress. Make sure it caresses the knees or falls just above your knees to get the maximum effect from its feminine shape.
Feature your legs
The tunic works perfectly well on its own but styling it with a shorter knit or jacket on top allows you to create an effortlessly elegant bohemian look.
Play with lengths
The tunic is easy to style with different lengths. Use it with a short or long knit to your preference or create a casual and elegant bohemian look with a pair of loose-fitting trousers. Wear a matching coat when going out.
The tunic is perfect for layering. Wear a short-sleeved one on top of a long-sleeved one to create the effect of many prints, or simply create a flowing silhouette by wearing the tunic with pants.
Play the silhouette game
As the tunic creates a long, lean torso and beautifully narrow shoulders, you can play around with wide skirts or dresses to create a billowing silhouette. Try a slim pair of pants with the same tunic and discover how versatile it is.
Wear the tunic as a dress
The tunic comes in different lengths, with the longer models easily doubling as a dress. Wear a pair of leggings underneath if you don't want to feel too bare, and simply pop on a smart jacket and jewellery when you’re going out.
TUNICS START WITH G
Every season we bring out our regular tunic styles in both both standard and seasonal colours, and in a wealth of gorgeous prints. These are classic styles in designs that last across the seasons. They'll soon be your new wardrobe favourites and are easy to style for any occasion. Some are typical summer styles while others are better suited to the cooler seasons, but they all have one thing in common: they start with the letter G.
THE GALENE TUNIC has an Oversize cut, falling loosely and adding volume to your look. The tunic features a round neck, mid-length sleeves with turn-ups, slits in the sides and in-seam pockets at the front.
THE GIGNA TUNIC has a beautiful A-shape, which accentuates the chest while also giving you plenty of freedom to move. This soft jersey tunic features a V-neck and short sleeves, and is perfect with fitted trousers for a simple everyday look.
THE GARNETTA TUNIC has a slightly shaped cut for a stunning feminine look. It is also designed with a deep round neck and high slits with button fastening in the sides. With the slightly longer length, this feminine tunic easily doubles as a dress.
Okay, so THE HARPER TUNIC is the only tunic that doesn't start with the letter G. But that's only because it's rather special. You see Harper also doubles as a dress. The feminine sleeveless A-shape is stitched in a light viscose fabric, which is why it regularly features in our summer collections. Harper has pretty details such as a tie fastening at the back of the neck, plenty of pleats and pockets in the sides.
THE GORITTA TUNIC has a loose and casual Oversize cut with an elegant, slim V-neck and short batwing sleeves made from gorgeous printed and exclusive viscose fabrics. The tunic is medium-length and looks stunning over a pair of loose trousers for a voluminous look.
THE GEAM TUNIC is simple elegance. With a loose cut in a straight shape, it feels utterly comfy on. It has a feminine mandarin collar, three-quarter length trumpet sleeves and a rounded hem that falls beautifully as you walk. Geam is available in our beautiful Masai prints or in an exclusive transparent fabric with an embroidered pattern.
THE GIZINA TUNIC is an everyday style with a beautiful V-neck. You’ll find it in two models: a long Straight model made in printed jersey with large pockets and three-quarter length sleeves, and a shorter A-shaped model made in a wool-viscose blend with long sleeves. The long model is long enough to wear as a dress. Both styles come out season after season in different prints and colours.
THE GERTIE TUNIC is a comfortable, stylish and ultra soft jersey tunic. The stunning A-shape gives it just the right amount of swing as you move. It also features short sleeves, in-seam side pockets and pleats on the back. A gorgeous tunic that gives you an effortlessly elegant look.
THE GLENCIA TUNIC is made from an exclusive jersey fabric and with its spacious A-shape feels soft and comfy on. Wear it over fitted trousers for a minimalist look or go for a more personal style with patterned trousers, a short jacket or a scarf.
