As Seen On The Streets: Shirts Around Waists

The last time you tied a shirt around your waist, it was probably unintentional: Your cardigan got too hot, your bag was too small, and you were headed home anyway. And, the time before that?

We spotted the following women who tied their plaid and non-plaid shirts around their waists with panache. Click through to see their individual styling quirks, and spot a few shoppable options to help you fill the holes in your own wardrobe.
