Why Tie A Shirt Around Your Waist When You Can Buy A $270 Skirt With Fake Sleeves?

Now that overalls are making a comeback, it only makes sense that other 90s trends follow suit. And nothing screams, “Angela Chase is my style icon” more than wearing a flannel shirt around your waist. I have to admit, I kind of love the whole “tying a shirt around your pants” trend (talk about convenient). I’m a sucker for 90s nostalgia: There’s still a little part of me that wants to dye my hair red, lean up against a locker and dream about Jordan Catalano. When I saw that 3.1. Phillip Lim had a printed pencil skirt with a flannel shirt tied around the waist, I fell in love. Until I realized that the flannel shirt was faux. As much as I love the trend, there’s no way I’d pay $270 (originally $450) for a skirt with a FAKE shirt tie around it. Maybe I could justify the price if I got a whole flannel, but just sleeves isn’t going to cut it. Seriously, Phillip Lim, for once I don’t need your designer expertise, I’m pretty sure tying a shirt around my waist is a DIY project I can handle.

What do you think of the trend’s revival? Check out the different grunge styles below and let me know what you think.

3.1 Phillip Lim ‘Skirt with Shirt Tie’ in ‘Black’ ($270, down from $450)

Rihanna also jumped in on the trend with a pair of white shorts with a fake denim shirt attached. Her version is slightly more reasonably priced:
