We'll admit it: More than a couple times, we've (accidentally) worn a shirt backwards, only to find we actually like it better with the tag in the front.

The finished look is way less "Oops!" and way more "How did you do that?" But, in fact, the process is the same one we mastered in middle school, only reversed. We know, we know: Don't try to re-invent the wheel. But, this sleek, sophisticated 'do is proof that shaking up the most classic of styles can yield totally chic results.
