Button 2 flannels together to create a completely one-of-a-kind look. I just love finding new ways to wear old clothes.

This is such a great way to restyle your favorite flannels.

Tools and materials:

  • 2 flannel shirts
Buttoning one side

1. Button one side

Put one sleeve of one shirt on one arm and one sleeve of the other shirt on the other arm.

Then button the one side of one shirt to one side of the other shirt, turning it into one big shirt.

Buttoning other side

2. Button the other side

Take it off and put it on again so the buttoned side is at the back. Now button the shirts together in front.

Tying belt

3. Belt it

Take the two extra sleeves at the back, pull them around your waist, and tie them together in front.

This allows the sleeves to act as a belt to add some definition to your silhouette.

I can’t get over this fresh and modern take on 90s grunge. What do you think?

Give it a try and leave me a comment to let me know if you love this hack as much as I do. 

Next, Grab Some Walmart Hoops and Yarn for an awesome earring upcycle.

    Looks absolutely ridiculous. "90s grunge"? I don't think so! And what's with all these "trends" where almost your entire back is out? It's FALL / WINTER. Why would you want your back out in the cold weather?

    I give this a -5.

    Interesting! Wish that I had two flannel shirts.
