On Our Radar: Around The Waist

Think tying a jacket around your waist is a fashion statement reserved for elementary school kids who forget their hoodies in the classroom? Think again! A light jacket or button up cinched at your hips is one of our favorite casual looks this season. As long as you’ve got an otherwise polished outfit or a few chic accessories, tying a plaid button up or stylish moto jacket around your waist is a fashionable, relaxed touch.

Clockwise from top left:
1. A sleek dress and leopard print booties are fashionable and trendy, so we love how easily a sophisticated jacket around the waist dresses this look down. (Sara Strand)
2. A statement necklace is the perfect counterpoint to a chambray shirt wrapped casually around your waist, and both are great additions to a crisp, fresh outfit. (They All Hate Us)
3. We love this upscale punk look: a vintage-inspired band tee and plaid shirt have just the right amount of edge when paired with heels and a sophisticated bag. (Fashionvibe)

Get the look, clockwise from top left:
1. Vince Paper Leather Scuba Jacket ($1050)
2. Vero Moda Denim Shirt ($30.38)
3. Pop Boutique Checked Flannel Shirt ($42.19)

    In the 6th and 7th grade, maybe the 8th, I tried a sweatjacket around my waist to hide my bubble butt. Of course now, I would love to have that high round tight booty back. Back then, growing up with anglo girls, big butts were not in fashion and I was a shy Latina who took a beating. These style come and go.

    A Jacket is a waist length garment that is coming in many varieties and shapes according to the fashion. These jackets provide the casual looks and also used for formal purpose.
