ALL IN THE DETAILS: To Be or Knot To Be?

June 4th, 2015 at 2:00am

Hello again fashionistas! Now as most Georgia Southern students are aware, Statesboro, GA is known for its unforgiving heat. As the days grow hotter, every fashionista faces the ultimate challenge of staying cool and cute. The only way to simultaneously accomplish the two, is to find exciting and creative ways to add a little spunk to the everyday tank top, shorts or mini skirt.

The trick is in the details, and oh how the knotted trend has taken the fashion world by storm. On a maxi dress, blouse or short skirt, this funky element adds dimension to any outfit. Its versatility allows it to be dressed up for a romantic date night or kept casual for a toasty day around campus. However, like many styles, sometimes knowing how to piece it together can be quite tricky; even the best of us can surely get “tied up” with this one. Since the knotted feature is easily the focal point of any get-up, it’s important that the accessories don’t create clutter, but complement it.

This Fashionista obviously gets it, and knows exactly how to rock this ensemble. Looking simply amazing, she flaunts her knotted skirt with a loose, high neck tank. Her two-toned, fuchsia and black, pointed toe ballerina flats create the perfect pop of color to her look. With minimal accessories, her gold watch, studded earrings and a functional tote bag, she’s ready to take on the day.

How To: As the title implies, you may be asking yourself if the knotted trend is for you. Don’t be intimidated and never stifle your creativity. Toss on a statement collar necklace and an ankle strapped sandal heel to dress it up, or low cut Converse to dress it down. Have fun, but remember, less is more with this one.
