HOW TO STYLE PAPER BAG WAISTS

The paper bag waist will be EVERYWHERE this spring… Skirts, pants, shorts… this audacious trend deserves to be looked at closely so it can be worn with confidence. Let’s begin with its original name. This scrunchy waist, which is usually tied with a ribbon or a belt, looks like a paper bag that’s held firmly with one hand.


Aside from its awesome name, there are many reasons to adopt the paper bag waist. Here are a few of them!


1.     It defines the waist and creates nice feminine curves. This cut, straight back from the 50s, will give you a beautiful silhouette in no time! If you have large hips that you prefer not to emphasize, paper bag waist skirts are a better option than pants, which tend to add volume on both sides.

2.     It adds style to your basics. T-shirts or camis, the paper bag waist goes with almost any top, as long as it can be tucked it. Crop tops also work and, with a high waist, it’s the perfect occasion to wear one without showing too much skin.

3.     It’s suitable for any kind of style! To make it chic (and elongate your silhouette at the same time), wear it with a blazer and heels. However, make sure that your blazer is long and wide enough so the scrunchy paper bag waist doesn’t annoy you. To make it more casual, go for sneakers and a simple top.

4.     If you can remove the original belt, try wearing it with a coloured one, which will add a fun twist to your outfit and define your waist even more!

5.     It is SOOO comfy!

 

Now, here are three looks that will show you how to wear a paper bag waist on almost any occasion!
