Knot it!

Start by taking a chunk of material and wrap it around your fingers. Then, simply tie it like you would a normal knot! You can loosen the fabric around it if you tied too tightly. Cute for ANY top, sorority or not!

Crop it!

This one is so easy! I like to personally start cutting a small amount and then work my way up. First, lay your t-shirt/sweatshirt on a flat surface and cut a straight line across the waistline. Try it on, assess if you like it or not, and then cut more and more until you’re satisfied!


Pair it with a denim jacket!

This one is my personal fav! Grab that oversized jean jacket, sweater, literally ANYTHING and make a layered look! Want to spice it up a little more? Wear a cut shirt under the jean jacket, SUPER CUTE!

Toss on a pair of overalls

This look is super easy to pull off too! If you’re not an overall person, grab your favorite shorts or skirts to match what you’re wearing! Just because you’re wearing a basic tshirt, doesn’t mean you can’t dress it up!

Make it a tube top

This look is SOO CUTE for those bid days coming up and is super simple! All you have to do is cut the bottom to the length that you want it, and then cut off the top (sleeves included). Once you have done that, cut the back in half (vertically) and then cut little strips on either side to tie together. This is one of those tutorials that is easier to watch, so definitely look up a Youtube tutorial to get that perfect look!

Now that you have these tips, dressing up your simple t-shirts is going to be a lot easier! While you’re posting those picture perfect looks on instagram, don’t forget to tag us at @universitytees.
