Hot Trend: The Knot

 

Mary J. Blige keeps it classy in this figure-forgiving knotted gown.

 

 

 

Kristen, Gwyneth and Ali Larter stay on top of the trend in their draped skirts.


Many designers featured fluid, draped clothing on the runways for Spring 2010- and one of the chief ways it has been interpreted in real life is with knotted shirts and dresses. This is good news for moms in particular- It gives some definition to areas you like (your chest and decolletage) and easily hides the areas you don't like (your waistline). Want proof? Take a look at these options...

Put on a pair of Spanx and this dress will be perfect for datenights. I love that it's sexy without being too revealing. It's $65 from Victoria's Secret and comes in a few different colors.

 

 

 

I think I may have to get this $70 skirt from Topshop. It's almost a dead ringer for the $1,600 skirts worn by our starlet trio above.

 

 


This knotted matte jersey dress is comfortable, flattering, and suitable for the workplace! It's $128 at Dillards.

 

 

Show off your sexy side (and hide your mummy tummy) with this babydoll bra-top shirt, $48.50 at Victoria's Secret.

 

 

 

You could make this $69 Victoria's Secret dress casual or dressy, depending on how you accessorize it. Love it- and it comes in several different colors!

 

 

 

A simple twist in the collar takes this Michael Kors tee from basic to beguiling. It's on sale for $32.99.

 

 

 

When at the gym or out running errands, try knotting your tee to make it more figure-flattering. This version is $39 from Athleta.

 

Are you buying into the knotted trend? I am- Ever since having children, I've found myself buying a couple of knotted tops or dresses each summer. I think the style is so flattering that it has become a perennial favorite among shoppers- and consequently, designers.
