Will You Tie The Knot… On Your Tops?

knotted-shirt (2)I might be a bit too late on reporting this trend, since it’s been going on for a while now courtesy of Kristen Stewart & Rihanna – for celeb reference – and again the ’90′s, which I swear are invading us all over again. Not complaining, but just saying. It does sometimes feel like high-school all over again. Yet, this Knotted Tops Trend is, thank God reinvented, cause let’s face it, we wouldn’t all want to channel Britney Spears or Christina Aguillera with those skin tight low-waisted jeans and ultra fitted tops tied right below the bras while singing ‘Ooops I did it again’. Oh no. Today’s trend is more flattering and easy to wear by all ages, sizes and styles. Not to mention it’s got a bit of retro to it, if we’re to talk about the knotted shirts Eva Mendes is always strutting the streets in, looking super hot. eva-mendes-knotted-shirtkristen-stewart-knotted-tshirt-grunge-lookrihanna-knotted-tshirtknotted-tops-retro-trendHow to do this trend? Tie a know on either your shirts or T-shirts and you’ll get a careless fun looking style. The key is a showing a bit of bare midriff and balancing your silhouette, though truth is, this knotted trend is pretty flattering as it is, cause it accentuates the waist and elongates the legs, but you have to do it with high waisted bottoms: shorts, jeans, skirts of all lengths. If you choose a loose top that you tie a knot to, you can play around with sizes on your bottoms and wear them tight (skinny jeans, straight skirts, tight cut-offs) or you can channel your inner Tom boy and feel comfy and chic in oversized trousers or jeans or maxi skirts. If you”re going for the tight knotted top, you might want to balance it all with loose trousers or jeans and large or maxi skirts to avoid looking… ’90′s trashy, cheap or desperate. trend-knotted-shirtknotted-denim-shirt-street-styleknotted-jacketknotted-shirts-stylesAnd now let’s talk Knotted Shirts! You can tie a knot to any shirt you’ve got, or even borrow one from your husband, brother or boyfriend, because even it’s a few sizes too big, it’ll still look great once to tighten it up to your waist. Or you can buy those shirts that are already designed to be knotted. The knotted shirt look is fantastic for casual styles or even for work, if you don’t expose your stomach. You can wear them with jeans, trousers, skirts and even dresses. Yep, when it comes to knotted shirts you can layer all you want: tank tops, t-shirts, dresses, bodices. You’ll look effortlessly sophisticated and I think quite retro in a very modern way. Do the cat-eye shades and big bag for a complete look. For crispy mornings add a blazer or jacket on top. Yay, more layers. jeans-knotted-shirt-street-styleknotted-shirt (3)knotted-shirtknotted-shirt-layerd-lookknotted-shirt-maxi-skirt-streetstyleknotted-shirt-skirt-heels-lokknotted-shirt-streetstyle (2)knotted-shirt-streetstyleknotted-shirt-styleknotted-shirt-trendknotted-shirt-trend-streetstyleWhen it comes to the knotted t-shirt I must say, I’m addicted to this look. I literally wrinkled all my tank tops and t-shirts on one side. The style is so cool and chic that I can’t get enough of, and I think it looks so flattering with skinny high waisted jeans, or cut-offs. You can tie a knot on a side as loose or tight as you like, in the front or in the back. When Kristen Stewart was doing this look a few years ago everyone was WTF, but now we”re all channeling our inner rocknroll meets boho-chic persona. While Kstew started this trend (let’s just assume that) Rihanna made some money with it. Ka-ching! Her River Island collection is literally packed with knots. She’s designed them on tank-tops, t-shirts, skirts and dresses. And she’s wearing them all just to prove how fantastic they look. Don’t know about you but I love them. It’s a cheeky fun grunge-meets-glam style that can be donned with sneakers, boots or high heels. As for the bling – pile pile pile dolls! Ha! I know I’m obsessed. Or what you can do is wear those body-chain-jewelry, that will look amazing from underneath your knotted top. Just a tiny sight of skin and bling will make any knotted outfit a hit.  dress-knotted-shirt-layersback-knot-tshirt-street-styleknotted-t-shirt-styleknotted-top-skirt-street-stylekristen-stewart-knotted-tshirtkristen-stewart-knotted-tshirt-lookrihanna-in-riverisland-knotted-trendThe Knotted Tops Trend is that trend that basically gives more lives to a top, which can be worn as it is, loose, tucked in, or knotted in so many ways that it will look as if you’re rocking a different shirt or t-shirt every time. I loved tying my shirts and t-shirts in high-school, and I love it now. It’s careless yet sophisticated. And it can even look polished in a very retro effortless way, or bohemian/edgy if you feel like it.
