All knotted up | 10 ways to wear a knotted button-down shirt

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m a fan of knotting, or tying, a button-down shirt. I thought I should back up what I said, so I went through my archives to find examples. I’ve seen tying a button-down listed as a “trend” off and on, but for me, it’s always a classic look! 🙂

So throughout the past 4 years, here are 10 different ways I have knotted a button-down shirt:

This is one of my favorite tricks, as it basically turns the dress into a skirt — with no extra fabric or lines at the midsection!

      What a great idea Jen, this really makes dresses more wearable for everyday. My favorite is the bold navy & red/coral print dress with the chambray shirt over it, love that combo!

    I really like the way you do this! The silly thing is, I did this with a sleeveless shirt about a year and a half ago over a dress that is a teensy bit too big around the armpits and it really worked well! Must do it again!
