I don’t know about you but I am always in search of fun fashion hacks. I love a hack that enables me to use one article of clothing in a variety of ways.

This fashion hack does exactly that. Grab your favorite button-down flannel and I will show you how to turn it into a fabulous summer top.

Tools and materials:

  • Long sleeve button-down shirt
Wrapping sleeves

1. Wrap the sleeves around your waist

Hold your shirt from the shoulders with the front open.

With the back of the shirt facing your body, wrap the sleeves back around your waist, crossing them over and bringing them back to the front.


2. Secure in front

Button one sleeve to the other at the front of your torso.

Bringing shirt together

3. Bringing it all together

Take the rest of the shirt from underneath and hold the bottom corner in each hand.

Bring the corners up over your body and tie them together at the back of your neck. This creates the cutest little wrap around shirt.
