Think of being on a glorious beach with a sweet breeze. What else would you want to wear but TEA Tunics? The beautifully crafted and beyond-comfortable pieces designed by Antiguan Toya Turner became a Caribbean hit after this trained accountant designed and featured kaftans on her style blog. Her latest collection Tribal Heat incorporates traditional mola fabric, which consists of unique hand-embroidered patterns designed by indigenous Panamanians, which Turner was introduced to while on a trip there. And with her new collection of hand-beaded flats launching this summer, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t add a little TEA flare to your closet.
