Okay, so this is nothing new or novel, but I am really loving the half tucked-in, half untucked look I’ve been seeing styled this fall. I am not sure why this hasn’t occurred to me recently as a great way to style a button down (or any other shirt for that matter) — especially since I was all about leaving the back of my shirt untucked for all of 7th and 8th grade. I used to rock the grunge flannel and tshirts only tucked in in the front, every day of the week. When I saw it popping up again recently, it was kind of a “DUH” moment. Like, how could I have forgotten!?
So, this fall I am returning to my roots. Button down shirts that are untucked in the back and tucked in in the front. It’s a stylish way to make what can be such a conservative, buttoned-up or reserved look, appear just a little bit more styled and laid back. I say, just a dash of dishevelment is good. Keeps it casual and draws more attention to the waist instead of billowing, which I think slims the figure.
Since I am absolutely obsessed with Equipment shirts, those are the first blouses I am going for in my closet. They have the perfect drape to them and come in a million colors and prints. Plus, the silk and chiffon material is sophisticated and looks great with a little slouch from tucking in the front. Seriously, they are simply the best blouses out there. I can’t get enough of them.
Do you do it half-tucked?
