Shirt Tied Around Waist Trend

October 8, 2019

Have you been noticing a lot of shirts tied around waists lately?  Some dresses, skirts, and pants even have a built in “shirt”around the waist!  If you’re not sure about this trend, let me take a minute to try to convince you to try it!

Here I went with a bit of a 90’s grunge rocker look, but you can create many looks with this trend.  By the way, I’ve been looking all over for a gray/black/red plaid flannel shirt.  Can you believe this one from the men’s department at Target?!  Hey, you never know where you going to find what you’ve been looking for!

Why the try-a-shirt-around-your-waist might worth trying:

#1 What a convenient place to carry an extra layer!  Tis the layering season!

#2 A shirt around the waist can cover love handles!  Seriously!  You know those muffin tops that spill over the tops of your pants and jeans? I mean, come on, we’re middle-aged and I would guess 90% of us have that issue!  A well-placed shirt tied around your waist can cleverly disguise that fact!

#3 It can cover your butt!  If you want your rear end covered up for any reason, here’s a way to do it!  Maybe it’s not your best feature and you just prefer to cover it up. Maybe you are wearing leggings and would like a bit more coverage and modesty. Maybe you have panty lines, but can’t find comfortable no-show panties.  Haha … IDK!  But you can cover it and call it fashion!  If the sides of your shirt even wrap around your hips a bit, that can be slimming on a pear shape!

Okay, have I convinced you?  You don’t need to buy anything new.  Just try it as a style and if you do, tag me on social media!

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce.
