Though relegated in recent years to moms just trying to be practical and bring a sweater with them to the movies, the shirt tied purposefully around the waist is making a major comeback on stylish stars including (from left) Gwen Stefani, Vanessa Hudgens and Nicole Richie.
While Stefani and Richie both attempt high-fashion versions of the grungy look, Hudgens wears hers the most like we remember: Plaid, beat-up and ready to be repurposed as a slouchy top at a moment’s notice. Of course, this trend wasn’t always intentional the first time around — sometimes a girl just really needed a top to tie around her waist at a certain moment.
