Tuck it in, tuck it in.
Having great style isn’t just about cleaning out your closet so you have just what you need, or setting style goals to keep your outfit decisions focused, it’s also about knowing how to style the clothes once they’re on your body.
That’s why I wanted to talk about tucking. The half tuck is a big thing right now and while you may have seen it and rolled your eyes or thought you could never pull it off – the visual power it brings to your look is big.
The whole purpose behind tucking anything in whether it’s a half tuck or full, is to show off your waste and bring definition to your body. This helps you to look skinnier especially when you’re wearing something voluminous.
No one wants to look heavier and when you wear bulky things you run that risk – that’s why you tuck!
I love the half tuck because it’s like you tried, but not too hard – which falls right into the cool range.
The half tuck is also good if you have bigger hips. That little bit of waste you see gives you just the right amount of definition, while the volume that’s left spilling over balances out your hips and bum.
A full tuck is good when you’re rocking a high midi skirt and is perfect for showcasing your waste in an outfit like this.
If you’re nervous to try it, half tuck your shirt and wear an open cardigan or jacket with it that way it’s not so obvious and you can see how you feel about it throughout the day. I’ll showcase that look in an upcoming blog so you can see just why it works!
