T-shirts are anything but boring

The t-shirt is often thought of as a basic essential.  You get one at your kids’ school “Relay for Life” event for participating or maybe took one from your significant other to sleep in.  You may even have purchased a few “nice” t shirts to wear when running errands to not look like a slob.  Whatever the reason t-shirts are viewed as a simple article of clothing to be worn in one way and no other,  When you hear the word t-shirt your mind probably goes to this:

But a t shirt can be many other things.

Below is a list of the top 7 things you can make out of a t shirt without having to sew.  Many of us weren’t blessed with amazing sewing skills so the following t-shirt hacks only require scissors.

I absolutely love the statement necklace.  It takes any outfit from 0 to 100 real quick.

I like to lounge around in black leggings and a tank top.  So I look basic.  But if I throw on a statement necklace I suddenly go from basic to baddie.  Luckily a quality statement necklace doesn’t have to break the bank.  With the option to turn a basic t shirt into a beautiful statement piece everyone can be a baddie.

3. Cozy square top

After doing 30 minutes or so of cardio chances are your armpit sweat has had its chance to ruin your expensive workout shirt.  Pit stains are inevitable, one way to minimize them is by going sleeveless!  Also, if you do manage to ruin this shirt and have to throw it out  chances are you did not pay as much for the t shirt as you would for an activewear top.

5. Tank Top
