Update your wardrobe using an old t-shirt with this simple step by step tutorial!
It seems everywhere I look these days I see pretty people rocking off the shoulder cuts. First there was Leandra Medine – mother of all things fashion -, then the lovely Alissa, then the Sartorialist. Before I knew it my friends, neighbors, hell, the bus driver all went shoulder revealed. Now it might have been fashion hallucinations due to the fact that I’m properly obsessed. So I stole The Boy’s t-shirt and figured it was DIY time.
