It's not exactly the way we wore our knotted tops in the '90s, but the easy-chic, slightly undone feel that comes with that tied top is back. I love the nonchalance of a knotted top with high-waist denim, or over a favorite printed sundress. That said, I'm taking styling notes from some of the most fashionable celebrities. From Anna Lynne McCord's '70s-style take to Kristin Cavallari's breezy elegance, browse the looks below for a celebrity-inspired tutorial in outfitting your knotted tops for Summer.
Minka Kelly's knotted version of the classic white button-down is ideal for a leisurely afternoon out. I love pairing the basic top with a graphic print maxi and summery accessories, like a woven tote and leather sandals.
Make use of a cool chambray top by knotting it over a printed sundress. I love how these summery, classic pieces play off of each other for a sweet seasonal style.

I love Anna Lynne McCord's take on the knotted top for its super '70s feel. To re-create the style, pair high-waisted white denim with a chambray denim shirt. Finish it all off with a hobo bag and a pair of Summer wedges for an easy day look.

For a flirty, fun take on the knotted top, and try a lighter, sleeveless button-down. Add a fun contrast with printed shorts and a pair of sky-high wedges, then tie it all together with a cool fedora and trendy backpack.

Kristin Cavallari's punchy-colored top makes her knotted style all the more playful — and perfect for Summer. Just pair your bright button-down with a loose fitting pencil skirt, and knot at the waist. To finish, add a few neutral accessories, and you've got a great look for brunch or afternoon cocktails.
