Tie-Front Tees

Tie-Front Tees

Hey y'all!

Today, I'm talking all about tie-front tees and linking my top picks for you. My top tie-front tees. Say that five times fast, lol! Anyways, I'm loving this look lately...and it's so easy to create.

My favorite way to style this look is simply with jeans or jean shorts. I think you could get away with pairing it with a denim skirt as well. Y'all know I love my denim ;) I would definitely pair it with some high-waisted denim, if you have some. That will make your legs appear longer, especially if your tee is on the shorter side, like mine is.

I got this 1985 tie-front tee from H&M and knew I HAD to have it, since I was born that year.  Definitely meant to be!!! Fun fact: I found out the other day that Dairy Queen blizzards were also created in 1985, so it was quite literally the best year ever!

When I purchased the 1985 tee, I had a feeling it would sell out fast, and sure enough it did  :( But not to worry, because there is the exact same shirt in three different colors linked for only $13 below, plus some really other great options! Annndd I'm still keeping a close eye on the 1985 tee for you (really hoping it restocks) and I'll post to Instagram Stories if I see it available again. So, be sure to connect with me over there if you're not already!

The tee is a little shorter than I would have liked, to be honest. But I also am pretty tall (5'8" and have a long torso in relation to my body.) With the tees in today's post, I'm going to link some longer length ones, since I know some of you might not be comfortable showing your belly. Also keep in mind...you can ALWAYS wear a tank underneath a shorter tie-front tee if it's too short. For this one, I would pair a black tank underneath if I wanted more coverage, and tuck the black tank in my shorts. That way, you can still get the tie-front look, without exposing your mid-section. Or just buy one that's a longer length :)

I distinctly remember having a tie-front tank in the fourth grade, and it was a black and white collared gingham print tank with (also super trendy right now....funny, eh? we all know that fashion comes and goes), and I remember it being one of my most favorite shirts ever. Isn't it funny how things always come back like that, and also that I remember it so distinctly?
