Today I am up with another trend post about backward shirt trend. Off lately on Pinterest, I have been seeing lots of pins about this new fad or might be a trend. I was wondering if its actually feasible to wear a shirt backward. I thought to give it a try, although I tried to wear it in a more wearable fashion. I was a bit skeptical if I can actually pull it off and walk through streets. I mean people will stare you for sure, but who cares as long as you are confident in your skin. Pull it off like you actually mean it instead of a fashion faux pas.
To wear a shirt backward comfortably, pick a loose shirt preferably a button down so it doesn’t hurt your neck. If conventional is boring then this trend is definitely for you. Initially, I thought it won’t be comfortable to wear a shirt backward, but girls I was wrong until I tried. You can pair the backward shirt with shorts, midi skirts, denim or even over a backless maxi dress. I wore with denim as I was bit doubtful initially, probably next time I may try it with a skirt.
I thoroughly enjoyed wearing the backward shirt than the conventional way. Nowadays I am smitten by peekaboo back phase, therefore wearing backward shirt gave me that peekaboo back look in a very subtle way. I picked up hubby’s beach floral printed cotton shirt, this one’s my favorite due to its print and extremely soft fabric. I tried to style it in two easy to pull of ways.
First Look: I wore the shirt backward, rolled up the sleeves, and buttoned the top and second last button as it was a windy day outside. You can wear it with just two or three top buttons closed and leave rest of the buttons open to give it a split back look. Kept styling very laid back with just kitten heels, red lips and a hand carry pouch. Take a look at the pictures below.
Second Look: I kept top button secured and then tied the ends in a knot. I find this look more chick as it structures the whole look, reveals a bit of the skin, shirt fits me well too by tying it in a knot and lastly I love knots. You can also leave the top button open and secure the ends in a knot if you feel like flaunting that sexy back.
I loved wearing the backward shirt a lot and next time I am going to wear this look with a solid shirt as this time I was a bit skeptical and wanted to keep it subtle by a big confusing print. I hope you guys liked this post.
