Following the latest ‘90s fashion craze is the return of shirts tied around the waist! I remember being scolded by teachers way back in 3rd grade because my classmates and I would often tie jackets on our waists as a sort of uniform accessory, and it was greatly discouraged. Not surprisingly though, since we couldn’t even wear colored hair ties or pluck our eyebrows. Ah, but I digress.
Anyhow, wrapping flannel shirts and leather jackets around the waist used to be part of a whole grunge look (think ripped denim, Chuck Taylors and Doc Martens) , but an updated version of the trend has sprung out of recent F/W collections. Kanye West sported it with a tailored jacket, while Rita Ora wore it with black peeptoe heels. What a lovely juxtaposition of dressy and casual.
While doing research on this trend, I saw a photo of a girl wearing a white button-down, a white skirt, a statement necklace and classy high heels. My favorite part? She tied a light-washed denim jacket on her waist as a cool contrast to her classy outfit. I’m so inspired to try something similar soon!
Let the nostalgic feels begin. What do you think of this comeback?
