It started at New York Fashion Week this season, wait, before New York tying your jacket around your waist was a functional style often seen worn by your everyday, average worker, anywhere.
As the cinched waist for men became more popular as a style the tie-waist was adopted as a sort of bridge that men could try out on the sly. Like, ‘is he being fashionably coy or did he need to shed a layer because it’s warm?’
With the Lucio Vanotti fall/ winter 2018-19 runway look, it’s a bonafide fashion trend. It’s nice that Vanotti expanded the look to work wear. Typically you’d see this for sport clothing.
And the functionality of the Lucio Vanotti look is just as relevant, it remains the number one way to manage layers.
