I’ve noticed a fashion craze that has literally been going “in and out” of style lately. It’s the half-tucked blouse. And, ladies, you might be surprised how this trend can help you look longer and leaner.
While on a shopping trip to Austin, I visited two of my favorite stores: Chico’s and Talbot’s. In both stores, I noted mannequins wearing half-tucked shirts. Take a look:
The first time I ever saw this concept was on my friend Judy McLane’s website, Harmony Designed. Judy demonstrated the half-tuck in this photograph.
You can use the same technique by knotting the front of your shirt and leaving the back long. Take look:
It’s hard to tell from this photo, but the blouse is tied in front and left untucked at the back.
And, on the other end of the style spectrum, men are suddenly “untucking” their shirts. There’s even an entire brand called
Fashion may be confusing, but at least you can’t say it’s boring!
Please let us know your thoughts on tucking, tying, and untucking. Would you do it?
I never thought about a half tuck for myself. I just saw it as a fashion trend for younger women. But I will try it. Anything to look a little more slender! Thanks Sharon.
