The No-Tuck Trend

Hey friends! I'm writing this post comfortably curled up in bed, after having submitted my last paper for my undergraduate career... which feels so totally weird to write. Anyway, you've heard me ramble about my thesis/graduation/college in general a lot recently so I'll just keep this part short ;)

This outfit was inspired by my new sandals, which I raved about in my last post. They're my first pair of block heel sandals (admittedly late to this trend), and I whipped them out of my closet the moment the weather warmed up (aka the monsoons finally abated)! Bonus points for being super comfy- I've never been a heels girl so these block heels are saving my granny self.

Speaking of trends, I recently read Who What Wear's article about how tucks of all forms are being seen less in some street style photos. While I'm not one to follow fashion trends unless I like them, I actually thought I'd give this styling trick a try. Since this top is fairly loose, or even borderline humongous on me, I thought leaving it untucked created a more streamlined look as compared to stuffing the extra fabric into my jeans. While I normally do a front-tuck, my shirts aren't usually this long (I didn't take a petite size in this one as it wasn't available) so I made an exception to my signature way of wearing a button-down.

Tucking in shirts is a good way to emphasize your waist and elongate your legs, particularly if you're a petite gal like myself. For this outfit, however, my heels did the lengthening so I could give my shirt a break. ;P Regardless, fashion rules/guidelines are merely suggestions which are meant to be broken if that's what suits your outfit or personal style! What do you think? Do you have any fashion "rules" which you'd be okay with breaking yourself?
