I do this but not as a fashion-oriented option, simply as a practical one sometimes. Finnish sunny days can be chilly on a whim, especially as the day wears on a bit!

I do it out of necessity. I'd much rather do that than wear it on my shoulders, preppy style.

I used to do it until I noticed it looked dumb (until 9years old)

I haven't done this since I was in elementary school. I can understand the practicality of it though. Just the other day, I saw a mother who was really pissed off trying to wrangle up her 3 kids and and all their crap and she had her jacket tied around her waist. So it has a place in the world. But I try to avoid doing that because I know that I'll just look dumb.

I never thought of tying a sweater around my waist as a fashion choice. More like a necessity so not to have to carry it!

It's too uncomfortable, above all, it hurts my toosh!

Er, I stopped doing this after Year 6. Some girl in my high school used this to hide her period stain though.

OMG I HATE this!!!! I just saw it the other day and made a mental note (yeah I know, I waste brain cells on that) to NEVER do that (and I dont usually, although I did in the 90s when it seemed to be cool). And tourists always do this - not just with sweaters, but with jackets, etc. Tie it over your shoulders if you REALLY must!

This screams tourist to me. I think it's because they always tie they're big sweatshirts around their bermuda shorts (I live like 7 blocks from big tourists spots). But even with the touristy thing aside, it's a bad, bad look. It ruins the outfit! Not a fan.

well, sure, when you show such an amazing picture of a beautiful girl looking fashionable as hell with a sweater around her waist, of course 212 people are going to think that it's a good style. well, I have news: it's not!

The only time I really remember tying a sweater around my waist was when I was in middle school in the mid-90s! Tying it around your shoulders looks better. And the 'sweater-over-bag' look is better too.

I only do it when I'm out hiking or doing something active, and I'm in a place where I can't drop off my jacket. Normally, I'll drape it over my canvas bag as I walk around campus or stuff it in a bag.

If I don't feel like wearing the sweater or holding it I would wrap it around the waist. If not I wouldn't do that otherwise.

I can't nay's not particularly attractive, but its practical and I'm always on the side of practicality.

Nay. When I was in 2nd grade I used to do that to my sweaters and over shirts all the time (I was going through a tomboy phase then...) and trust me, I do not want to look like my 2nd grade self. I just dislike it on myself for that reason.

The only time I would ever do this was if I had a menstrual accident, lol....otherwise, its way too 4th grade for me.
