 …that is, tucking in your shirt in the front to achieve a pseudo high-low effect. This would make a loose-fitted top look more tailored,  and would also enable you to show off a statement belt, and make your bottom half look longer, and finally, generate a casual effortless chic vibe from a simple outfit…

Well today I got more creative with this tucking-in fashion trend due to the unique feature of this moroccan-inspired top I purchased a from Winners (this is why I love rummaging through the clothing racks at off-price retail stores, because you often times find items that are one-of-a-kind). The top is even cut at the bottom except it has a flap in the front. I like the color and the pattern of this top but when I tried it on for the first time, the cut is not flattering at all. It looked too plain, old-fashioned, and shapeless. But, as soon as I tucked the shirt in while leaving the flap in the front hanging out, it immediately elevated the entire outfit. I love the asymmetry and the waist line that was created. It’s amazing to see what a big difference a small action could make. Maybe you guys have some shirts in your closet that are ‘tuckable’. Try it out! Perhaps you’ll realize the shirt is actually more stylish than what you thought.
