Upgrade Your Layering Game With This Versatile Styling Piece

Share

More often than not, the key to a really good outfit is nailing the layers. While winter weather makes this easy, transitioning into warmer temps can challenge any ensemble with lots of pieces. As we look to spring and mentally prepare a slew of outfits, a particular trend has caught our eye as a game-changer: the built-in front tie. Simplifying the age-old shirt cinched around one’s waist (gotta love the ’90s reemergence!), this streamlined approach to looking expertly styled actually minimizes the work put in. Seen via redux shirtdresses, redone oxfords and culotte jumpsuits, the look reads super polished, a little preppy and über-cool—putting a feminine spin on an otherwise menswear-inspired aesthetic. Here, nine takes to get on board with stat, all in a variety of textures, silhouettes and price points.
