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.
