The Gibson Tunic by Joie is a great way to look fabulous with little effort. Just through it on with your favorite jeans, and you are ready to go out with friends!

If you loved all the floral prints that were available this summer, here is another one that would pair great with a jacket for now, and you can wear alone when the temperatures warm up.

It is long at 27 inches in length, and it is 100% silk.
