When we see people with their shirts or jackets tied around their waists, they just seem to feel hot and just take their shirts off and tie them around their waists so they don’t have to wear them. It’s partly true. Yes, sometimes we do that when we’re feeling hot. But in many cases they tie their shirts around the waist to look stylish. Don’t underestimate the impact a shirt tied around your waist can have on your outfit. It’s actually a fun styling trick. In this article, I am going to share with you some of the best looking shirts tie around waist outfit ideas.
White t-shirt, denim shorts and boyfriend shirt tied at waist
To start the list, I’m going to share with you one of the most iconic casual street outfits. You only need four pieces, which I’m pretty sure most of you already have in your closets. All you need is your white t-shirt, denim shorts and sneakers. For the sneakers, white sneakers or Converse are perfect choices. Then tie a plaid boyfriend shirt around your waist to complete the minimalist casual look. The boyfriend shirt not only adds a lot of style to your outfit but also narrows your waist.
Jeans and denim jacket
The previous outfit idea also works if you replace the denim shorts with jeans. The image above shows that not only does a plaid boyfriend shirt work, but you can also tie a chambray boyfriend shirt or denim jacket for this outfit. It adds a lot of style to a relatively ordinary white t-shirt and jeans combo.
Leggings with a colored shirt
This outfit is a great demonstration of using layers. By tying a colorful plaid boyfriend shirt around your waist and throwing on black leggings, the shirt magically transforms into a beautiful asymmetric skirt. It’s an excellent idea for a casual outfit for fall.
Black tank top, denim shorts and chambray shirt
After talking about how to style a white t-shirt, a black tank top also works beautifully. The black tank top might not make you look as refreshing as a white t-shirt, but it usually makes you look even slimmer. Just pair it with denim shorts and tie a chambray shirt around your waist.
Black t-shirt dress with green jacket
Here is an outfit idea that will make you look feminine and beautiful. It’s a clever use of color: all black outfit with green in the middle. All you need is a simple black t-shirt dress and a green jacket at your waist for this chic look.
Sweater dress with cardigan
Since the previous female outfit idea is mainly for summer, this is an even more elegant outfit idea for fall or winter. All you have to do is tie a gray cardigan around a light gray sweater dress. The dark gray and light gray layering does the magic for this outfit.
Horizontal striped dress with chambray shirt
This outfit idea is a great example of how to jazz up a horizontally striped dress. The use of color is very important for this outfit. You can wear a horizontally striped black or navy dress and tie a light blue chambray shirt.
Leather jacket, jeans and blue boyfriend shirt
When it comes to excellent use of color, this outfit idea has to be mentioned. This outfit consists of a shirt, a black leather jacket, jeans and blue plaid boyfriend shirts. The blue and black outfit creates a breathtaking casual look.
Black leather dress and jacket
For a cool dark look, you can try an all black leather look. You can wear a black leather dress and tie a black leather jacket around your waist. Even though it’s an all-black outfit, it still really stands out due to the leather-on-leather layering. With enough confidence, you can do it too.
Crop top, high waisted skirt and boyfriend shirt
The trend of ties around the waist also applies to skirts. For a summer or fall street look, simply pair a white crop top with a mini skirt and tie a plaid boyfriend shirt around your waist.
White comfortable sweater with black striped long-sleeved t-shirt
This outfit idea is very different from the others mentioned. It consists of a white comfortable sweater, a black skirt and a black striped long sleeve t-shirt tied around the waist. This combination of textures and colors is unique and the result is surprisingly good.
Black jumpsuit with a striped t-shirt
Another unique use of layering is to pair a black jumpsuit with a black or navy striped long sleeve t-shirt tied around the waist. This is a nice trick to slim the waistline.
Cargo shorts with a striped t-shirt
In my opinion, the boyfriend shirt is the obvious number one waist fashion trend, but the black or navy striped long-sleeved tee is barely a second. Another example of using the striped t-shirt is paired with a white long sleeve t-shirt and cargo shorts.
White skort with boyfriend shirt
Here is a unique skort outfit idea. You can combine a heather gray sweater, a white skort with a chambray boyfriend shirt around the waist.
White t-shirt, leggings and denim jacket
For a casual and stylish fall outfit, you can wear a white t-shirt and black leggings with a denim jacket around your waist.
Tying your shirt or jacket around your waist is a magic trick that can instantly upgrade your casual outfit. From the ideas above, you can see that there are many options to play around with. My favorite idea on the list is the combination of white t-shirt, denim shorts and boyfriend shirts.
