Now that fall is here and the air is crisp, it's time to break out jeans and longer sleeves to keep cozy! These exclusive slouchy dolman tunics from The Mint Julep Boutique are so perfect for looking effortlessly, casually chic! 

The exciting part is that normally The Mint Julep Boutique only opens these up to the public on Sundays, but Chow Down USA readers get access to these slouchy dolman tunics every day of the week for 50% off ($24)! They're honestly the perfect staple item and so fun to accessorize.

Dolman tunics are different from any other top because their sleeves meet the body of the shirt much lower, creating a comfy and loose look. My faves are the grey and red which reminds me of a sporty baseball top, and the bright cobalt blue that will make you stand out instantly.

1. Accessorize
Since slouchy dolman tunics are already so loose and casual, feel free to dress them up a bit with a statement necklace and a nice watch. This juxtaposition offers a great balance to the look. They would also look great with a blanket scarf for fall.

2. Add Some Height
Avoid the frumpy look with some height from comfortable block ankle boots or over the knee boots!

3. Pair with Fitted Bottoms
Distressed jeans stay in line with the casual look, while balancing the loose dolmans with their tight fit. This look would also work great with fall leggings.

4. Add a Structured Bag
Fashion is all about balance. Since the dolmans are slounchy and loose, a structured bag acts as an anchor for the eye against the relaxed fit of the tunic.

5. Style Your Hair
To keep the look clean yet casual, I added soft, subtle waves to my hair for this look.

And there you have it! The takeaway for styling a dolman tunic is simple: keep balance in mind. You don't want to wear a slouchy top with sweatpants and flip flops. If the top is casual, pair it with fitted jeans, some height from ankle booties, jewelry, a structured bag, and style your hair a bit. It's the perfect casual chic look!
