Spotted: Knotted

Sept 17, 2018

It’s that time of year when the weather feels like a rollercoaster & we’re just along for the ride. One day it’s cool & breezy. The next it’s blazing & we’re left scrambling to figure out what to wear, which is why we couldn’t help but notice that our fashion directors have cracked the code. We keep spotting them killing the knotted top look day in & day out at the office no matter what confusing thing is happening outside—and you know what they say: pics or it didn’t happen, right?

 

So we took to the streets to see how they brought their own flavor to the trend with faves straight out of their closets. Turns out this transition season is even greater reason to get all up in knots—it’s a look that feels pulled together & effortless even when the humidity & ever-fluctuating temps just won’t quit.


 

A classic canvas of black & white instantly feels different & exciting with the addition of a knot. Not to mention, that simple knot moves this look from day to night brilliantly.

Alyssa Spirito, Assistant Fashion Director of Women’s Ready-to-Wear


 

I’m really into high-waisted, wide-leg trousers these days & a cinched tee-shirt with a short sleeve feels like the perfect balance of proportions. Plus, I love the juxtaposition of a sporty, casual top with a more business-formal bottom.

Lauren Bernstein, Vice President of Editorial Content


I love a white tee, but sometimes I just feel like it needs a little more oomph. Adding layered necklaces & an edgy leather jacket do the trick.

Darcy Patterson, Associate Content Editor


My grandfather arrived in this country from Italy after WWII & this is his local union t-shirt. I adore that this t-shirt is living proof of his American dream. Knotting it takes it from baggy to fitted so it gets even more outfit mileage.

Elise Saetta, Fashion Director of Beauty


All things high-waisted, jean skirts included, are having a moment. However, a higher rise doesn't exactly look great with a lot of the longer, less fitted tees in my closet. For a quick fix, I've been knotting those go-to faves & now they feel like new additions to my closet.

Lauren Wolfenden, Fashion Director of Women’s Ready-to-Wear


A longer skirt can sometimes feel too business-y, so I like to give it some room to breathe. A knotted tee & a killer print balance out that serious vibe.

Erica Gustafson, Associate Fashion Director of Accessories


Who wore it best? It’s totally a tie & you can nail the look, too. It’s simple: grab a tee & take it from casual to flawless with a simple knot on the center or the side. Pair it with high-waisted pants, a skirt or even over a dress.
