Too in love with this dress gifted from Too Damn Expensive to not write a blog post about it. If you caught the IG post, you know it’s one of my favorite looks of the season. Knotted everything is so on point for a fresh take on deconstructed basics. From knot-back sweaters to knotted slides, this twisted classic has been flooding streetstyle looks starting from spring and moving heavily into fall. What’s great about the trend? It’s completely fresh, but totally wearable so you’re not screaming “oh, that girl must be in fashion.” It’s edgy, but still wearable for a night out or day in the office.
In regards to this dress in particular, the look is also extremely versatile. You can choose to leave the straps tied or untied for a more relaxed fit. Looking for an even more dramatic update? You can knot the bottom of the hem with the side panels to convert this maxi into a midi dress. Knotting is all about being creative and making your own style. Knotting the bottom hem of your shirt is so elementary, but it got some of the later adopters on the trend. We’ve now moved on to a full-on evolution of make-your-own fashion. I’ve seen fashion bloggers knotting their poplin arm sleeves around their waist and even around the back of their shirts, showing off their creativity and adoration of the trend.
This look got a double trend whammy with the addition of the heavy metal loop scarf (also from Too Damn Expensive) that can be tied around your neck or waist. The Givenchy tote is a steal I got off of Guilt a few months back, and is just right for carrying around my work week essentials. I love incorporating luxury fashion pieces into streetstyle for a more refined fashion statement.
Another worth while mention – the shoes! These pretty things were my own custom design gifted from a company called Shoes of Prey. If you’re not familiar with them, I strongly encourage you to check them out! They’ve got dozens of silhouettes that allow you to choose heel height, heel shape, materials, colors and more for a look that is uniquely your own.
