What are some cute ways to tie a shirt for summer?
In this section, you will get to see some of the cutest possible ways to knot your shirt. Here’s for you to pick –
1. Let’s start with the classic front knot
You can never stop looking cutesy with this. All you have to do is – leave the upper part of your shirt unbuttoned and twist the lower loose ends of the shirt in a singular knot – and you are done for the day.
Is that all? Not really! There are multiple ways to style this knot and step up your game.
If you are wearing a T-shirt –
. Tighten the fabric of your tee and accumulate a maximum portion of the shirt under your waist level or chest level (as per choice). Create a ponytail out of it.
. From this ponytail, create a loop-like structure and then thread the tip within it.
. You will automatically get a knotted look when you tighten this knot and straighten the T-shirt.
. Have you tried tying a shirt with a bandeau top? This section will give you an idea –
. You will have to start by putting on the bandeau top. On top of that, put on your shirt.
. In a normal manner, you will have to tie the ends of the shirt. But ensure that you do it loosely.
. Take the tied area and put it under the top. Now take it out from above and let the knotted part hang down.
. From there, you will have to tighten the knot and straighten the shirt.
#Stud-like earrings and open hair go best with this look. Opt for mid-waist jeans to amp up the cute game.
2. A back-knot is so cutesy!
Too tired of the front knots? Want something a little cuter? One of the cute ways to tie a shirt is to opt for a back knot on a flannel shirt or a regular one (sporting a transparent strapless bra!) to inch your game up.
. Wear the shirt backwards so that the buttons are placed at the back. Leave them unbuttoned.
. Take the loose ends and tie them down at your waist level or even below. Go in for a single knot.
. Once you have tied the single knot, you will have to close some of the buttons (2-3 buttons maximum). Avant-garde look!!
#A high bun with normal waist jeans or even flannel trousers would go well. Add a pair of clung-ear-type earrings. Get a tote with a steel chain, and you are ready to go!
3. Who stops you from showing some skin?
You are looking for a handful of cute ways to tie a shirt, but that doesn’t mean you cannot show some skin. This super cropped front knot is best worn with a strapless bra, but you may try it out with a longline bralette as well!
. You will have to take a part of your shirt and knot it at the back (just like what you do in case of a back knot). This time it will be higher.
. Now take up the fabric that is dangling on your front portion and tie the knot higher than the backside.
. Ensure that the front and back knots are not in symmetry. Also, the front knot has to be as high as feasible – allowing your navel to show completely.
#To up your game – try low-waist jeans and a sleek neckpiece with it. A chunky pair of earrings with a top knot is a great way to complete the look.
4. Tuck it in front with a knot
This is not just knotting but going a step ahead and tucking! If you are looking for a cross between a knot and tuck yet want to let the shirt loose, then you may very well try this alternative.
. You will have to start with a front knot but a rather loose one. Take the ends of the fabric and pull it to the front. The placement must be to one end.
. Ball up the fabric in one end and give it a twist with your fingers. Again, you will have to keep it loose. There should be enough fabric available for you to leave out the loose ends of the shirt.
. Tuck in the knotted portion of the shirt and leave out the loose ends. Now wrap the loose ends in a way so that it gives the impression of a tucked-in shirt.
#This look goes perfectly well with denim, denim shorts, and short skirts. A pinned hair, threader earrings and a bare neck will set you apart from others
5. What if you have to knot a fitted T-shirt?
You might be looking out for cute ways to tie a shirt – but if you are wearing a fitted one, then you might find it a little tough. No worries! We will show you how –
. Already the usable fabric is little. Gather as much as possible on one side and twist it in a way to create a ‘rope-like’ look.
. You will then have to fold the rope of this fabric in half. Take a rubber band and wrap it over this rope-like fabric twice to knot it well.
. From the end of the loop, you will have to adjust the fabric in a way that it covers the band completely.
#Either opt for hoops or studs and try this style with figure-hugging jeans or a slit midi/mini-skirt. Leave your hair open, or go in for a French braid.
What to remember about knotting your shirt?
As cute as you may look by tying your shirt in the choicest manner, you must note these points down –
. Try to pick a baggier shirt to ensure maximum leverage for knotting it the way you like. The fitter the shirt – the less cloth for tying.
. If you are too bored of styling the same shirt, you can always draw a temporary stencil sketch on it.
. Do not leave the knot on your shirt for more than a day since that could permanently stretch the material.
. Always de-knot your shirt before putting it into the washing machine. If not, you could permanently ruin your shirt.
Whether it’s a lackadaisical day at the office or you have a class to attend – a knotted shirt always adds a ‘feel-good’ touch to your regular wear. Pair it up with high-waist jeans, skirts or harem pants, and assuredly you will be the cynosure of every eye.
