tie knot dress trend

A knot detail on a dress adds flair to an otherwise simple silhouette. The tie knot trend can be found on everything from skirts, dresses, pants and shirts. 

Get inspired to step out in trend with Zara's knotted dress with stripes. The knot is at the bust and the dress features a front cut-out at the waist and buttons fastened down the skirt. 

A simple twist on an everyday outfit makes for a fresh, effortless style. Plus, it's flattering and easy to wear for all body types.

What I like about Zara's version is that because it has a cut out you can mix up the look. The first time I wore the dress, I layered a black lace bodysuit underneath. By doing that, it added an edginess to the clean-cut style and didn't leave me feeling overly exposed. I opted for a size medium in the dress and it fit comfortably. The back has an elastic waistband, so the small may have been too tight. The buttons are functional so you can fasten as many (or as little) as you like. The 3/4 sleeves and collar give it an office style look, but if you do decide to strut this dress around the office a solid bodysuit may be necessary.
