Chantel paired the new look with a black one-shoulder top, then carefully tucked the dress and straps over the belt.

The outfit looked seamless and could be dressed up with heels and a blazer, or dressed down with sneakers.

The clever trick would be ideal for those who want to wear basic pieces multiple times in different ways, but would work best with thin sundresses.

In the comments, other TikTok users praised Chantel, calling the idea “amazing.”

‘So clever!!’ One person wrote, while another added: “I don’t think you just pull the top over, that’s much better.”

And this isn’t the first time Chantel has revealed savvy fashion hacks.

Earlier this month she released another video showing how to tie a coat the right way, revealing that many Australians get it wrong.

In the clip, she can be seen in a black wrap coat and jeans and said it’s wrong to button up the coat and tie it with a simple knot – it looks much dressier to do a simple bow.

Chantel wraps the black belt around her hand several times, forming a small loop before slipping the belt through – which allows her to tighten the waist a lot more.

“Make any outfit look effortlessly chic with this simple pleat,” she wrote.

Hundreds of people commented on the video, praising Chantel for the simple hack.

“Okay, but this actually looks so much better,” said one.
