Re: Amy's half tuck

I wear a half tuck with my jeans often, but prefer it on the side.

I believe the half tuck trend is the result of the proliferation of leggings and skinny pants, where women want coverage in the back, but not the volume in the front which cuts the body in half, and can look unbalanced, or frumpy. Half tucking provides asymmetry which lengthens the body visually and accentuates the leg and the waist.


@ballinmom 

Exactly! that and those darn long a** tunics! lol

A simple tuck can knock off  (the look of) 10 pounds! especially if you're an hourglass like myself. Defining the waist always takes off inches...


@Andreatoo the cute twist front sweater you ordered is the perfect solution, so cute. I also like an aymmetric top (not hankercheif hem).

Good point, @ballinmom, but wouldn't one want to cover the crotch area of leggings too?

Only the ones that give CT!😉 (which means they shouldn’t be worn to begin with)

If that's what you think, don't copy her look.

Re: Amy's half tuck

I love the half tuck. I am petite and it allows me to wear so many more tops. It’s hard to find the right length in tops for petites so this half tuck fad has expanded my wardrobe so much. So it works for me.

I don't copy anyone's look ... I have my own style!  Smiley Wink  

 

(For the record, it wasn't the fact she had a half tuck, it was the fact that the shirt fabric was too stiff for that style and made a bulge above her waist band.   Bad fabric choice on Amy's part for her half tuck.)
