This gorgeous crochet tunic features beautiful cold shoulder cut outs allowing you to be elegant and sexy without being overexposed. This is one of my favorite styles, partly because it suits not only young girls but classy women who like to wear feminine and trendy crochet garments. And partly because this tunic is so versatile and flattering! Want to look instantly cool? Pair it with fitted jeans and basic tops to show off your tanned shoulders. For bohemian appeal team it with long skirts and fancy earrings.

By the way, Missguided also offers this beautiful cold shoulder dress in their collection:
Their website states the dress was made made of thick 100 % acrylic yarn. I’d definitely stay away from any type of acrylic for a good breathing summer garment. Acrylic can be quite soft, but deep in their soul, they’re still plastic yarns. It’s not very compy to have plastic on your skin in hot summer.
Recently a team at Plymouth University in the UK spent 12 months analyzing what happened when a number of synthetic materials were washed at different temperatures in domestic washing machines, using different combinations of detergents, to quantify the microfibres shed. They found that acrylic was responsible for releasing nearly 730,000 tiny synthetic particles per wash, five times more than polyester-cotton blend fabric, and nearly 1.5 times as many as polyester (source).
