To tuck or not to tuck?
As I was getting ready for work this morning, I had a moment of hesitation.
Staring into the mirror, I thought: Does this untucked button down shirt look sloppy?
I wanted to change, but I was already running late.
Instead, I tucked just the front center section of my shirt into my jeans and slid on a brown belt.
Instantly, I felt more polished and put together. Confident enough, even, to wear a chambray shirt with polka dot jeans. To work.
A spin around the world of fashion blogs tells me that the partial tuck is a thing. Ladies are discovering that a front tuck nips in the waist but leaves rear problem spots covered.
Just remember, not all trends work for all people or situations.
For example: When I tucked just one side of a button down shirt into my jeans at a recent family gathering, three aunts approached me separately and quietly (bless their hearts) told me that my shirt had become untucked.
I told them it was a fashiony thing and they nodded like they understood.
Later, when one of my shirt buttons came undone, no one told me. When I asked why, my aunt said she wasn't sure if it was a fashiony thing.
So, what do you think? Is the partial tuck something you do?
