The Half-Tuck!

The deliberate half-tuck trend offers a solution to fashion challenges: perhaps you want to show off your waistline to create a more flattering silhouette, or maybe you’d like to display a cool belt or emulate a stylishly disheveled look. It’s a savvy trick that the fashion set, such as Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller and Karla Deras of Karla’s Closet, has recently adopted. There’s an art to this technique, though: in order to avoid looking half-dressed, make sure your top is carelessly tucked into a tailored skirt or pants, resulting in a casually cool outfit.

  1. I love the half tuck. I have been doing it for awhile. There is a technique it’s true, otherwise it can look sloppy.

      • lol perhaps I looked a little nuts when I first started my half tuck “trend” but it looks like it has caught on so I don’t look like I got half dressed 🙂
