Shirt tied around the waist – We’ve seen dungarees, mirrored sunglasses and hats make it way back into Fashion, but this season fashion bloggers all around the world are wrapping their shirts around the waist! The 90’s grunge trend typically involved wrapping plaid flannels around ripped jeans with either Doc. martens boots or a pair of converse trainers on the feet. However fashion is about taking trends and renewing them, so here are 3 ways to rock this trend in 2016.
1. Wrapping the shirt around your jeans.
This is the classical and most common way to pull of the shirt-wrap look. Pay attention to the color of the shirt, either have it match the colors of your outfit to let it blend in or pick a very bold color to make it pop! Plaid patterned shirts look great when wrapped, but don’t be scared to try out other prints too. Add a biker jacket or a beanie for that grungy feel and relive the 90’s all over again. As for shoes anything goes. Feel free to mix it up with flats, boots or even high heels.
2. Wrapping the shirt around a skort.
What a nice way to combine two of this season’s hottest trends. The skort is such a statement piece on its own and adding the shirt-wrap makes the waist area even more eye-catching. The key to pulling of this look is to add a basic neutral colored top or sweater to tone the outfit down, because less is more!
3. Wrapping the shirt around a dress.
This a great way to achieve the casual-chic look whenever you feel like wearing a dress, but don’t want to look too sexy. Be carefull though, this look won’t work on all types of dresses. We recommend wrapping your shirt around a bodycon or a t-shirt dress for the best result. To create some contrast try wrapping a denim shirt around a colorful dress. For a more harmonized look pick a shirt that has the same color as your dress.
So what are you waiting for? Dig in your closet (or your boyfriend’s) to find a shirt and start wrapping it around your waist!
