Trend Importance Factor: High.
Wearability Factor: Medium High.
How to Wear It: Get the look with thick belts, yokes, and other forms of waistline detailing. This trend is great for boyish body types, as it helps to create the illusion of a waistline. Avoid this trend if you have a large tummy, as it will direct attention towards your midsection.
Where in Trend Lifecycle: While the idea of focusing on one’s waistline is definitely not new, it’s been given a new lease on life this season. We expect to see this trend at least for the next few seasons.
