Crop tops are super trendy lately. Have you noticed them in practically every store?


Follow along to see how you can transform any regular t-shirt into a crop top without cutting it.

Tools and materials:

  • T-shirt
  • 2-3” bangle
  • 1 hair elastic
Folding t-shirt

1. Fold

Put on your t-shirt and fold the front side underneath to the desired length for the cropped look.


2. Add a bangle

Find a bangle or ring that’s about 2-3” in diameter. Place it on top of the folded shirt, right above the fold.


The ring doesn’t have to be exactly in the center for this laid back look.

Adding bangle

Next, cover the bangle by folding the fabric upward and onto it.
