Summer season’s Styling Trick- Knotting is the new tucking

By Posted on No tags 0

I’m sure you are no stranger to the tucked-in shirt- it’s clean, more polished and feels professional, but this season knotting is the new tucking.

Knotting you shirt at the waist can sometimes be more flattering than a full tuck- it gives you a casual and retro effect. This has been gaining in popularity over the last few years and a lot of celebrities wore it.

You can easily achieve the look in two ways:

  • Tie the two fronts of a regular shirt/blouse into a knot at the waist, with the front buttoned or unbuttoned
  • Purchase a shirt or blouse that  has a knotting designed front so it cannot be worn like a regular shirt

I’m using a little trick- I fasten the tightly balled up fabric with a hidden elastic band in the front of my shirt ot t-shirt.

It’s low maintenance—once you have your shirt perfectly tied, there it stays, as opposed to the constant adjusting and re-tucking of a shirt throughout the day and you can knot as high or as low as you please.

Here are some inspirational photos with knotted shirts and T-shirts.
