Starting on the Spring/Summer 2017 runways, cinched waists were everywhere – primarily in the form of oversized belting and corset lacing. However, there is one small detail that has emerged to become a strong contender for one of our favorite micro trends of the year: the knot.

If you’re especially style-savvy, you’ve probably been rocking this keen detail without even noticing its ubiquity across catwalks and street-style categories alike. We’d even go so far as to say that, if your outfit has this detail, you’re nailing the style game in 2017.
