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.
