Watch: How to Waist-tie a Flannel Shirt


Have you ever noticed a disconnect between how a flannel shirt looks when casually tied around the waist of your favourite TV show character (think Emily Fields on Pretty Little Liars or Jughead Jones on Riverdale), and what the actual result looks like when you attempt this at home? Us too. As it turns out, there’s an actual technique to this seemingly nonchalant look and luckily, our stylist spilled her secrets and showed us how to master it. With outdoor events like Jazz Fest coming up quickly, having a long-sleeved shirt available to layer on when the sun dips below the horizon is not only stylish, but practical. Watch our video for a few simple tricks, and you too can saunter down the streets of Winnipeg looking as cool as your favourite fictional teen.
