Hey guys what’s up mystery girl Karina here!
I did a fashion hacks video a while back and you guys loved it so so so much that I thought I would gather up some new hacks to show you guys. As always these hacks are super easy it’s super quick and they take under a minute! Also, there’s no sewing required so anyone can do it.
This time I’m showing you guys how to tie a cute little knot at the front with your t-shirt. There are so many different ways you can tie it but I found the best way is to just take the two sides of your t-shirt cross it over and then twist it. Use one of the twisty ends and just wrap it around the other, twist the end, and that way you create a perfect little knot. It’s actually really simple! I find out most other knots tend to just fall apart, but this knot actually stays in place.
Okay guys the second hack is one of my favorites for spring and summer and it is turning your simple dress into a skirt. Say for example you really like the pattern of a dress but it doesn’t come in a skirt format?
I would simply unzip the dress, fold it inwards, and stop at the point where your waist begins. Pat, it down smooth on the inside. If there are no zippers on your dress it’s even better because you don’t have to be fussing around with zippers and stuff. If you find that it’s falling down and not staying in place on your waist because there are no belt loops we’re just gonna be using our good old elastic band belt hoop trick. I actually covered this hack in detail on my other hacks video so make sure you check it out if you haven’t seen it.
You just turned your cute little dress into a summery skirt! Save material! Save closet space! Save money!
The next hack is for those of you who want to spice up your boring old white t-shirt. I’m just using a simple hair scarf here and I tie it around the first knot just once. Then I tuck the knot or fold it inwards and then just use the remaining part of the scarf to tie a knot or a bowtie. You can experiment with different accessories and you can also tie it at the back if you want.
Here’s another trend that I’ve been noticing going around and that is tied back tops and this way you can literally pair any t-shirt with any hair accessories and it’s going to look cute and different each time!
The next hack I’m showing you guys is how to wear a bra or a bralette under a tie front top. You can tie it normally like outside your bralette and have it show or if you want to conceal your bra here’s a way to do it. First, you want to take the two ties of the shirt and tie it halfway into a knot but not all the way and with your inner loop you’re gonna tuck it underneath your bralette and now with your other hand pull it out from underneath and then secure and a knot in the middle.
I find this is especially useful for bathing suits and cover-ups.
For my next hack, I’ll show you guys what you can do if your denim jeans are a bit too large for you around the waist I call this the button loop method. You can take a shoelace or even some ribbons or even like a bra strap from one of your bikinis. Take the string and loop it around the back three belt hoops and then you tie it into a bow tie and then once you have a bow tie all you would need to do is flip it inside and tuck it into your jeans. If you want it to be more undetectable I suggest using a piece of string that’s the same color or close to the same color as your denim bottom depending on how loose the waist was, to begin with, it might look a little bit scrunched up near the back but then you can just throw a belt over it and it’s gonna hide all the scrunch.
I know I’ve covered a lot of hacks for jeans that are too big around the waist but what if your jeans are too tight around the waist? In this case, all you need to do is to secure a hair elastic. You just want to loop it around the button and then through the other side of the buttonhole and then back onto the button. The only downside to this is that you need to wear something that goes over it to cover it up. In my case, I’m just wearing a relaxed sweater so you can’t really see underneath.
I don’t know about you but sometimes I’ve had really embarrassing situations where the zipper on my jeans just doesn’t like to stay up so sometimes I’ll just be like walking around for hours with a gap in my jeans!
One way to prevent this is just to use an elastic band. It can just be a hair tie. I’m using clear elastic this time but you can use like whatever color you like. I promise it’s not gonna fall down again!
This next hack I’m so excited about and it’s for people like me who loved to wear tights and leggings. Let’s be honest even the most expensive pair of nylons can rip around the toe if you’re not careful. I’m not being crazy! I’m wearing one on each foot just to show you guys what its gonna look like if you’re wearing semi-sheer or opaque tights. It’s gonna be so much harder for your toe to manage to rip a hole in your tights.
I’ve also had moments where I’m wearing a pair of tights and I’m wearing a dress or skirt over my tights. Then, when I’m walking around I realized that my tights are gradually slipping down. One way to fix this if your tights won’t stay up is just to use a pair of high waisted underwear or high waist swimwear. Wear them over your tights and because it’s high-waisted and hopefully tighter than your tights it’s going to keep your tights in place and prevent it from falling down.
Another great option is to use something like shapewear I’m just wearing a super-duper high waisted undergarment that looks like this it actually sucks all your tummy in and then you get the added bonus of your tummy looking flatter.
In my first Hacks video, I also covered how to turn your regular shirt or tops into a crop fitting top. I’m calling this hack bra tuck v2 and what you basically need to do is take the two sides of your shirt and twist it until the height of the top is where you want it. Then you’re going to take the two side loops fold it in and tuck it into the sides of your bra. This way you can tuck in the front side and back of your top at an evenly without constantly having to like twist and check to see if they’re okay.
Guys! Thanks for checking out my new hacks video!
