The Tuck.

To tuck or not to tuck, that... is the question.


This spring and summer season as I become obsessed with the T-shirt all over again I have fallen in complete and utter love with the "tuck". Although I haven't been able to share this mutual love with you since I am a blog beginner, I thought what better time than another manic Monday! Ill show you my ensemble later in the post, but Id like to focus on my key inspiration of the "tuck". Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen... fashion Icons no doubt or just your occasional spoiled brats, but I find some liking in there wear from day to day. When Mary Kate doesn't wear the same shirt three days in a row, and Ashley actually does her hair, one can really pay attention, as did I when I fell in love with the tuck. For me my t-shirt faze is a small one, I tend to lean towards more professionally dressed at times instead of a plain t-shirt, yet this put me right back in check for the perfect balance of a casual look, but not toooo grungy (we cant really not have a bit of grunge). So once I saw the twins pull this look off time and time again, I wondered why I hadn't jumped on the bandwagon yet. So after I got over the self conscious factor I just did it, and we have lived happily ever after... except for the occasional hole in the shirt, then the tuck really pisses me off... ♥

Hmm, I never liked to tuck but now I am obsessed in tucking in my shirt! =X To me, the question I always ask myself is to belt or not to belt.

I like the tuck as well. Plus it helps keep things covered when you have jeans that are a bit too low...

When I was young I hated tucking in everything (probably because I wore a uniform and we had to tuck our shirts in) but lately I've really been digging the tuck. it makes a whatever outfit look a little nicer super quickly.

Tucking is great - gives a bit retro look and perfectly elongate our legs and defines our waists!

I guess it can make the same look slightly more in a chic way... I love the way you did it and with that cute MJ bag... you are such a darling xx

Haha, I just did a post on the half tuck! I swear by it, it makes any outfit look more chic. You look great!

CoutureCarrie said...

Good lookin' out! This is definitely a hot trend, and MK & A can make anything look chic, even if it's a raggedy old plaid flannel tucked into skinnies!

Mikkle said...

I love belting and tucking right now! It is a must.

Beka said...

I love the tuck. The only problem I have is finding the right pants. A lot of times, when I try it, someone will come up behind me and untuck my shirt...someone I know, that is. Have you had that problem?

Miby said...

Tucking is not bad at all! I personally like it!
Your shirt is quite nice! I love the Eiffel tower on it! Lovely outfit! :)
