• Current Trend Crush: Knots

    This post is contributed by Ashley Aikele of The Daily Bucket

    It’s so easy for me to get bored with my wardrobe, which is why I love little tips and tricks that help me see my clothes in a new way. Over the weekend I tied my chambray blouse up and paired it with a high-waisted maxi, it felt so much more like summer and got me excited to experiment with some of my other clothes. Here are some of my favorite knots from around the web. Now get “knotty” everyone!

    Anyone know where the top knot image is from? I would love to credit the source so let me know!

      Love all of them. Like you said, the temporary commitment is perfect! And there’s something sculptural about it.

      But the headscarf – on me it’d look like I was getting ready to clean out the garage. There are some looks that are so lovely yet I just cannot pull off. Not that I’m losing sleep over it!

      I’ve never seen a knotted dress before but I think i like it!

        That was my exact reaction when I found this picture! And the best part is when your not in love with it anymore you just take the knot out. No commitment, just the way I like it 😉

      I’ve been knotting my button down shirts a lot lately. It’s a great way to make a fancy outfit a bit more casual and ‘Hamptons chic!’
