Tying the knot on your top, whether it is a t shirt, a shirt or a tank top, has become a fashion trend that is here to stay. You can see people doing that more and more, especially in the spring and in the summer. I love this trend because of the energy and cheerfulness the outfit expresses. In this blog post, I am going to talk about some of the best tie-up-the-knot outfit ideas, such as knotted t shirts, tie-front shirts, knotted tank tops, and much more. But before that, let’s just quickly talk about how to knot your t shirt.

How to Knot a T Shirt?

Some t shirts are actually designed as knotted t shirts. For the rest of the t shirts that are just normal t shirts, it’s actually very simple to do it yourself. The best positions for the knot is the middle front of the t shirt or a few inches to the left or right, or the middle back. You can tie the knot in a way that it shows your waist like a crop top, or in a way that it doesn’t show any skin at all by making the knot just low enough for the t shirt to cover your waist.

Why Do It?

There are mainly two reasons for tying the knot on your top. One, it makes you look energetic and fashionable. Two, it helps showcase your beautiful curvy waistline. Let’s jump into the different beautiful outfit ideas now.

Knotted White T Shirt with Boyfriend Jeans

Pairing a knotted white t shirt with ripped boyfriend jeans has to be one of the most iconic boyfriend fashion outfit. It is a minimal outfit that makes you look stylish and casual. Without the knot, this outfit is going to look a little dull. The knot just adds the right amount of curve to the outfit that pulls together the causal look.

Knotted Tee with Denim Shorts
