Step by Step: How to Tie a Shirt Knot

Note: Be careful not to damage your tops by over-stretching them. This works best on tops that have plenty of fabric such as tunic length and relaxed or slouchy styles.

  1. Wear a cami or fitted tank underneath your top. Tuck the cami/tank in fully.
  2. Loosely fold the hem of your shirt up and inwards around the sides and back.
  3. Gather enough of the top along the hemline to create a knot. Can be centered or to the side.
  4. Tie a regular loop knot by creating a loop with the gathered fabric and pulling the fabric up through the loop (may have a long tail).
  5. Pull at the shirt from both sides of the knot to shorten the tail.
  6. If desired, tuck the tail into the center of the knot.

When To Knot Your Shirts

When Not to Tie a Knot on Your Shirts

If your shirt doesn’t have enough extra fabric to easily tie a knot and you’re having to really stretch you may damage the hemline permanently. 

Opt for a front tuck on your fitted shirts instead.

How to Knot Your Shirt Without Looking Fat

Knotting your shirt can actually help hide a tummy bulge if done right (because it prevents your shirt from clinging to your tummy awkwardly).

If you’re self-conscious of a tummy bulge, try wearing high-rise/high-waist pants or skirts when you knot your shirts.

Then layer with a cami tucked into your bottoms fully so that you don’t have to worry about skin peeking out when reaching up for something.

Do You Have to Wear a Belt If You Tie a Knot on Your Shirt?

A belt is optional.

However using a belt with a fun color or pattern look adorable peeking out under your knot, and it’s a super mom-friendly way to look stylish!

No belt is still a totally acceptable way to go, especially for a more casual vibe.
