I get so many questions from y’all about how to tie up a shirt and especially after Monday’s killer workout post with this outfit on! It really couldn’t be more easy to do and it’s such a quick way to add a little detail to your top and a little extra definition to your waist. And since these Onzie pants have so much character about them, I love tying up my t-shirt to show them off even more!
There’s really no wrong way to do it, just try it until you get a knot that you love! Before you start, decide where you want your knot to be- in the middle, or to the side? And if you’re really adventurous maybe try it out in the back! Wherever you want your knot to be, that’s where you’ll begin.
How to Tie Up a Shirt:
Step one: Gather a portion of your shirt between your thumb and fingers. Hold onto it tightly and pull as much excess fabric away from you as you can. This will make it easier to tie your knot. The more fabric you have to work with, the less you’ll be pinching and squeezing your shirt later on.
Step two: Begin to tie your shirt. Keeping your thumb and index finger tight around your shirt, drop your other fingers down and wrap your shirt around those fingers. Dropping those fingers down allows you to make a hole for the rest of your shirt to fit into.
Step three: Now you can begin to bring the shirt back towards the hole you just made.
Step four: Almost there! Bring the loose fabric around your fingers and tuck it tightly into the hole.

Step five: Pull tight and adjust to make sure the knot will hold, and that your shirt fits. You’ll notice that you can kind of pull and tug to adjust your shirt. You may want the knot a little farther away from your body so your tank fits looser, or if you want a tight fit, pull the knot tight so it’s close to your body.

VOILA! All set! Now you can rock your knotted tee or tank! This is the perfect pop of detail to your workout outfit and makes any top a great piece to be able to transition from the gym to errands, to coffee and back again! And who doesn’t love a little waist definition with the additional comfort of a great tank top! Enjoy friends! xoxo
