By Marlen @mar_bear_

Ever seen a trend, liked it, but weren't necessarily sure if you could style it in a "you" kind of way? "How We Wore It" will show you how different women braved the trend and played with it until they got it to fit in with their styles- and hopefully that'll inspire us to poke a toe out of our comfort zones and try something new, too! Today's trend will be tying shirts around your waist. Happy creating!

Give yourself the illusion of more coverage when you're wearing a small mini or thigh-grazing shorts by casually slinging your denim or leather jacket around your hips. It gives your short proportions a little more volume.
