The Half-Tuck Trend

What’s the half-tuck? It’s not a new dance move, so all you non-graceful readers out there can relax. It’s one of the hottest fashion techniques right now, and it’s super simple! If you’re diggin’ the casual and sloppy look that’s popular this season, you need to implement this trick into your style. Here’s how it’s done:

-Throw on any oversized shirt and your favorite pair of bottoms. It’s best if you go up a size or two when purchasing the shirt.

-Take the middle part of the bottom of the shirt, and tuck it in!

-Let the loose sides of the shirt fall out for that thrown together look.

-The less “square” the tuck is, the better!

*Variation: For button down blouses or chambray-type shirts, you can also tuck in just one flap into your bottoms.

The half-tuck is great because it’s so versatile! The tuck works with skinny jeans, boyfriend fit jeans, mini skirts, shorts, or leggings. It’s also a really easy option that’s perfect for you on-the-go gals OR guys. That’s right men, this trend is for you too!

So next time you find yourself looking for a little change-up to your style, try the tuck!
