who is excited about the recycling fashion? I must admit I am. I can’t stop going through my mum’s old pictures so as to make sure am doing everything right.We’ve seen dungarees, mirrored sunglasses and hats make it way back into Fashion, but this season fashion bloggers all around the world are wrapping their shirts around the waist! The 90’s grunge trend typically involved wrapping plaid flannels around ripped jeans with either Doc. martens boots or a pair of converse trainers on the feet.

Flannel shirts bring to mind an image of loggers hard at work, or conversely grunge groupies enjoying their favorite band. These opposing visualizations make proof of just how convertible this classic wardrobe staple can be. Men and women alike can wear flannel shirts for nearly every occasion, with a bit of easy styling.
I’ll give you my favourite 3 that I borrowed from OOTD women Magazine

1. Wrapping the shirt around your jeans.

This is the classical and most common way to pull of the shirt-wrap look. Pay attention to the colour of the shirt, either have it match the colours of your outfit to let it blend in or pick a very bold colour to make it pop! Plaid patterned shirts look great when wrapped, but don’t be scared to try out other prints too. Add a biker jacket or a beanie for that grungy feel and relive the 90’s all over again. As for shoes anything goes. Feel free to mix it up with flats, boots or even high heels.



2. Wrapping the shirt around a skort.

What a nice way to combine two of this season’s hottest trends. The skort is such a statement piece on its own and adding the shirt-wrap makes the waist area even more eye-catching. The key to pulling of this look is to add a basic neutral coloured top or sweater to tone the outfit down, because less is more!


3. Wrapping the shirt around a dress.

This a great way to achieve the casual-chic look whenever you feel like wearing a dress, but don’t want to look too sexy. Be careful though, this look won’t work on all types of dresses. We recommend wrapping your shirt around a body-con or a t-shirt dress for the best result. To create some contrast try wrapping a denim shirt around a colourful dress. For a more harmonized look pick a shirt that has the same colour as your dress.



Flannel works great for a comfy, cosy, cabin-in-the-woods feel. I love the look of this soft green flannel layered under a darker green cardigan… especially cinched at the waist with a gray leather belt. A pair of rugged, light wash jeans add a little rough-around-the-edges in all the right places. Add some femininity with a fluttery, floral scarf and soft leather clutch. Then balance out the frills with gray biker boots and deer jewellery.

like its said you can never go wrong with a black little dress its an everyday elegant look and there is nothing wrong with throwing a flannel shirt or tying it around your waist, also, Belts. Ring. Black knee boots. Tan riding boots. Black leather bag. . Aviator sunglasses.



so lets conclude that you can Let me just say there are SO many ways you can wear this shirt. you can pair it with shorts and tights, a skirt, jeans, or just opt for black skinnies and booties to play up the black & navy combo.
