It’s time for another trend that’s rooted in the grunge rock era of the 90’s…that’s right we are talking about the shirt tied around the waist trend.  While at first you make think the idea of adding a shirt to the midsection is a quick way to look bulky, we can assure you that there are plenty of flattering ways to rock this trend. With a few tips you’ll be looking just as chic as Nicole Richie, Khloe Kardashian, Gwen Stefani, Vanessa Hudgens, Rihanna and a whole slew of other big name Chicistas who have rocked this trend recently.

Best Shirt Types for Wearing Around the Waist
There are a few types of shirts that are just perfect for this trend, the first being a simple plaid or tartan button down blouse. You can wear it tied around your waist over a t-shirt and jeans for a classic grunge meets chic look or use the plaid shirt around the waist to add an interesting touch to a cute fall floral midi dress.

Another type of shirt that works well with this trend is the long sleeved chambray shirt which is definitively more ladylike and brighter than the plaid alternative. If you want to take your look to a whole new level of chic opt for a printed chambray shirt to tie around your waist.

Shirt Tied Around the Waist with Skinny Jeans
Tying a shirt around your waist will inevitably draw attention to your waist, but this doesn’t have to be a bad thing… case in point the peplum trend, which is another look that adds fabric to the waist in a flattering way. When you want to rock this trend think about opting for skinny jeans, they’ll streamline the look of your legs making them appear longer and your waist appear smaller.  Try opting for pastel skinny jeans when rocking a chambray shirt or go for classic dark wash jeans when wearing a plaid shirt around the waist.

Shirt Tied Around the Waist with Skirts
Wearing a shirt tied over a skirt is a great way to add a youthful touch to an otherwise classic ensemble. For example take a black fitted midi skirt and throw on a designer t-shirt and a plaid shirt around the waist for a look the blends grunge and glam, finish off the style with wedge sneakers for a casual sporty touch or ankle strap heels for an extra girl element to your look
