Off-the-shoulder tops are the latest trend we’ve developed a love-hate relationship with. They’re super-adorable and majorly flattering, and yet they never seem to actually stay off our shoulders unless we stand with our arms pinned to our sides all day. Here’s how to get your full range motion back without sacrificing style—all you need are four safety pins and two hair ties.
Step 1: Loop one hair tie through two of the pins.
Step 2: Clip each pin where a strap would be on the inside of the top.
Step 3: Repeat the process with the remaining hair tie and pins on the other sleeve.
Step 4: Slip your arms into the shirtsleeves above the hair tie so that it sits just below your armpit. Now swing those arms with abandon.
