Now, apparently linen has some magic built-in anti-bacterial powers as well as a certain level of water divergent properties. I’ve witnessed the latter in light rain showers on my linen jacket – you can see water beading and rolling off as if you were wearing Gore-Tex. As we were planning to visit the tropics during the changeover to the rainy season I thought I’d give linen a proper try out myself.
We just love reading about how much you love your tunics! I wanted to share just a couple of blog posts from this past summer season. From Maryland over to Texas, the colors of Guru Linen Tunics are everywhere. Click on the images to view the whole posts! Thanks a bunch, ladies! The love continues in the "comments" section. First blog comes from giclee artists The Pink Pagoda, who spotted our tunic at our Dallas, TX retailer Nicholson-Hardie. Our second feature comes from Maryland Pink and Green, a blog dedicated to travel, cooking, and fashion. We are named a "Top 5 Tunic"! "Tunics seem to camouflage any figure flaws around the tummy and are appropriate in almost any setting from pool to party."
There are few women in the world more beautiful than the Bond-Girl Halle Berry. Not too long ago I was gossiping with a celebrity make-up artist here in NYC. She was telling me about how different stars are when they come in sans make-up to see her, their table manners... you know, the juicy things we wish we didn't talk about? Well, she then said that the one woman that she has worked with and that she believes is the most stunning, and is even more beautiful all-natural, is our style icon of the day: Ms. Halle Berry. "Order this Alexandra Dress in White to recreate Halle's look"
And the one clothing piece that Halle seems to not ever be without is the tunic. Needless to say, we at Guru totally agree! She wears them casual, at the beach, as a blouse, as a dress, out shopping, anywhere! She also does an amazing job accessorizing her tunics in a way to fit the appropriate occasion.
"Guru's Sofia Sandals in Gold -hand stitched and organic leather".
Another favorite look (above) shows Berry in a flirty, comfortable baby-doll dress. Again, she hits an accessory home run with metallic sandals and an over-sized boho bag to complement the simplicity of the dress. How can a woman be so sexy and so cute at the same time?! Recreate Halle's look above for a fraction of the price by pairing Guru's Alexandra Dress in white cotton voile with Guru's Sofia Sandals in Gold!

Audrina Patridge joins the "sheer" trend by pairing a black bra under a sheer white blouse, creating a fun outfit that is both classic and sexy."
With every season comes popular trends that I either love or hate. Let's be honest: we all have our favorites, right? Well this season, one of the trends that I can't help but absolutely love is the embrace of sheer fabrics. For many people, the idea of anything sheer is scary. It doest have to be! Now anyone can join the "sheer" madness if they know how to do it. Designers have incorporated this trend into their new collection with blouses, dresses, gowns, and even pants.
Wearing sheer allows us the coverage we want, but gives a light, effervescent look that is perfect for Spring and Summer. A great attribute for sheer clothing is that it looks effortless. For a fun Spring sheer look: Try adding a soft, airy piece of sheer clothing, like Guru's Inga Top, to a very structured skinny pant to create a look that is put-together, but comfortable and inviting.
Combining a sheer blouse and a 'peek-a-boo" bra can also be playful and fun as seen here with the Maha Top by Guru.
Another way to rock this look is to play up the sexiness by adding a "peek-a-boo" statement bra or cami under a sheer blouse. Black and gold sheers bring in added drama for a more daring, provocative look. To get in on this trend, check out Guru's New Riviera Line. Adding the Inga Top or the Maha Top in one of our lighter color voiles is a sure bet to get your Summer wardrobe on the "it" list.
