Tie it, tuck it — however you pull it off, 2015 is all about the obi. Forget your skinny leather belts or your traditional buckled styles, the obi is feminine, minimal, and actually easy to pull off. While we first spotted the look on last season’s runways, the trend has carried into Fall, this time with a cool-weather twist. And it seems the trend is inspiring the street style stars as well: we’ve caught favorites like Caroline Issa and Aimee Song trying out their own spins on the cool trend. So how do you try the look out for yourself? We’ve broken down different ways to test the waters, and we’ve done the shopping for you, too. Just read on, and get inspired to try out this season’s coolest (and simplest) new trend. . . . Wrap it, tie it, tuck it — and you’re good to go.

Martha Graeff sported the trend with a pair of relaxed high-waisted pants that cinched tight around her waist. This high-waisted style works well with a simple top you can easily tuck in.

This little white dress takes obi-tying in a whole different direction by finishing with a bow in back. Play with this look yourself by switching where you tie your style — the hip, at the front, or in the back.

At Edun, models donned sashes that were belted using circular rings. Play on this version of the trend by belting your favorite day dress with a color-coordinated belt.
