One basic way to make an oversized shirt or button-down more trendy is by adding a knot to it. I do this a lot to my oversized shirts by pulling on the bottom of the shirt and giving it a single knot, usually in the center or one side of the shirt (examples via Cosmo here). You probably unintentionally do this trend too, such as when you tie the bottom ends of your button-down together (shirt example here). I love how various brands have started incorporating this twisted trend into more classic clothes like the shirt dress I’m wearing. The extra fabric helps make the knot dramatic, easier to tie, and more comfortable to wear. Although most fashion trends come and go, I don’t see this trend disappearing anytime soon so if you’re looking for a way to spice up that basic shirt in your closet why not upgrade it with a knotted version of it? Below are some of my favorite picks in stores right now.
