I remember when I was in School in the 7th Grade, I started tying my shirts with the high wasted Drainpipes. Oh Yeah! I thought I looked so cool!!! Almost like the Statue of Liberty!!
The knotted styled shirts go way back in the 1950’s reflecting liberation from the 1940’s, when blouses were tucked in the trousers and skirts. The knotted affair at first, began by the teens, borrowing their dad’s old shirts and wearing them more fashionably by tying the shirt tails around their waists and opening a few buttons.
Menswear took notice of this trend and started to design men’s tailored shirts in women’s sizes. The check knotted shirts became so popular in the 50’s. A whole new trendsetting wave took over.
The knotted shirts are so retro and look super chic when worn with the high waisted skirts, drainpipes, loose denims, trousers and shorts. They accentuate your well toned waist and make the legs look longer with the high waisted shorts/denims or skirts. They exuberate a confident, careless and rebellious vibe. I would choose this style any day over the skinny tops. Knotted shirts are a perfect blend of power from the old school and present modernity. The style is chic, edgy, casual, fun and bohemian! You can choose to match your vibe and you will only reflect that in your demeanour.
The best part about the Knotted Affair is that most prints like the Checks, Stripes, Zig Zags, Floral etc look fab when worn with the cool combinations……and yes…….that’s self defining!! You can pick any oversized shirt and knot it and you will never fail to be the Pacesetter 🙂
I have combined this look with my cool wooden earnings woven with warm colours like green and yellow to brighten the outfit. They introduce an element of fun. The white and yellow striped shorts brighten the white shirt marvellously.
You can wear a trendy pair of pastel wedge heels or nude peep toes with this attire and you are ready to roll!!
Wear this ensemble to a fun lunch or a sundowner……and don’t forget to smell divine!!
Hello Fashion Lovers!!!
Just like anything amazing......Fashion is like the flowing creative energy of the soul through which one expresses oneself in gorgeous styles and colours. A charismatic person possesses a unique style, beauty, knowledge and execution. And needless to say, that reflects perfectly in how one carries oneself. Grace, elegance and chicness are the most important attributes on the fashion meter for me and wrapping that with abundant self love and positivity is a real game changer that creates magic with the ensembles. I believe we all receive a special message by the universe and mine is certainly is to become more capable and unleash my creativity in every way I can.
I am most excited to write on my fashion blog - "Her Tinted Closet". I pondered for days to find the right name for my baby blog. I loved the name because it reflects my personality - with many shades and stories to share. 💕
Love for fashion was instilled in me ever since I started recognising the magic of uniting the right combinations. An attire can create a spell, if they are perfectly put together. As a child, I would team up outfits innovatively and look beyond the ordinary. From being a fashion connoisseur, and a model, I ventured into the equity world and gained insights into business. I am also a trained actor and have acted in plays and short films.
Being a spiritual seeker - I am also into healing. This has changed my vibe as a human being and has made me understand the power of a human mind and energy. Am absolutely grateful for that!! Spirituality has always fascinated me......the path has only lead me to discover the divinity within and strive to be the best version of myself.
Chic Styling has been a part of my personality.....My ultimate fashion icons have been Cindy Crawford, Latetia Casta, Gisele Bundchen, Claudia Schiffer, Monica Bellucci. Style is just never about brands alone, but how you bring out the best, by embracing yourself, keeping fit and understanding your body and styling it with a fabulous ensemble of fabric and accessories.
My love for fitness has always inspired me to push limits to achieve higher goals. I believe that one's physical, emotional and spiritual self should be aligned to bring a balance in life and manifest the best for self and others. So Love your mind, body and soul.....It is a way to be aligned with the universe!!!
"Her Tinted Closet'' will give all the charismatic style lovers access to the chic, elegant, sporty, edgy, sexy, bohemian, casual, and many more hues waiting to be discovered.
Lets unfold the journey together - WELCOME TO "HER TINTED CLOSET"!
