I don't know - it sort of strikes me as a good solution should something really bad happen to the clothes you left home in...but beyond that I think I would pass.

I've also done a long sleeve as a strapless or halter shirt. stick your shoulders through the neck-hole and tie the sleeves either in front or around behind your neck! Usually pullovers are the best for this though.

RaspberryLIme
RaspberryLIme on August 07
I tried this but instead I double-knotted the front and tucked in the sleeves towards the back and no one noticed until I told them
michelleloreto
michelleloreto on August 07
I LOVE this! Perfect reason to continue using those old shirts I thought I was bored of.
nicstix
nicstix on August 04
all I can think of is "walk of shame, walk of shame" I can't and wouldn't be the only one if this was noticeable, especially with the sleeves hanging out.

LEM413 on August 04
Sorry, y'all, but I can't be the only one to think this is absurd, and I wear some absurd clothes.
illq
illq on August 04
cool idea, it is somewhat reminiscent of childhood when I would use to tie my jacket/sweater around my waist because I didn't want to hold it.

awesome idea! fashion IS all about being creative & versatile with items of clothing.
EmilyWujek
EmilyWujek on August 04
This complements the article on Thrifting really well. Thrift a men's shirt and use that. That's what I intend to do to try this look out. My only concern is if the buttons would stay done up as you're walking around/sitting.
kwiniekate
kwiniekate on August 04
now i don't have to buy skirts. . . all i have to do is buy button downs and experiment. . . such an inspiration!
sallyannk
sallyannk on August 04
Not sure if I like this look. It looks a little, "I just rolled out of bed and couldn't find my pants" but I'll give it a try. Maybe sewing the shirt a little to give it a waistband that will make the skirt stay in place. Hmm.

i dunno about this... some skirts were made to flatter. a shirt is meant to be a shirt. it's a unique idea, but i don't think it's practical

leiann on August 01
i'm gonna make myself sound really old, but i agree with amyruthblue. i did this in high school using long sleeved t-shirts, but i tucked the sleeves in instead of making a bow...hahaha!
AmyRuthBlue
AmyRuthBlue on August 01
I think we did this in the 80s, with our long denim or chambray shirts. But true, we usually still had shorts or jeans on underneath. Also, if women went topless while wearing the shirt as skirt, this trend would be the complement to shirt cocking by men.
