I’m all about doing new things with my clothes that make me look really cool which is also known as maximizing my wardrobe. Of course, I prefer “being cool.” When I can take a piece and make it look like nothing it did before, I get excited. I recently discovered how to tie a collar shirt into a strapless top and had to share. (I remember seeing it on Tumblr, but can’t recollect where to give the source :( ) After all, I’m all about creating the illusion that I’m cool.
I’ll be using a thrifted denim shirt that’s larger than my usual size, which I suggest. Something too snug may not work. This also looks incredibly cute with a plaid shirt. Okay, here we go:
Start with your shirt being unbuttoned at the first two buttons.
Then take your arms out to create a sweetheart neck line. (Unbutton or button according to your bust size.)
Tie the sleeves tightly to create a silhouette.
Finish by tying sleeves into a bow. To get the bow: Take the sleeves and make them loops then cross them over like an ‘X’. Take the top loop and put it through the opening. Let go of the end of the loop once it’s been tied through the opening. The bow will be messy at first. Straighten it out while tying even tighter. It won’t be perfect (unless you’re Martha Stewart.)
And that’s it. Totally take this idea and show it to your friends. It’ll make you look cool. Trust me. I know.
