3 Easy Ways to Tuck Your Tops

In fashion, shirt tucking can be considered an art, hang with me here. Have you seen some of those videos on social media, all the different ways to tuck and tie tops- I mean, MIND BLOWN!

There isn’t a wrong or right way per se when tucking your shirts or tops, but I think you do have to be careful because sometimes the tops can look bulky, making the fabric not lay properly, or look “off.”

half tuck

I have found myself doing this half tuck more times than I can count! This half tuck is also called a “one-handed” tuck and can be achieved by only tucking one side of the shirt you are wearing. I tend to do this tuck when the shirts are slightly oversized and have a boyfriend fit. Make sure to leave the buttons undone when you’re tucking on the side, so the fabric doesn’t bulge.

front tuck, AKA french tuck

The front tuck, or AKA the french tuck. One of my very favorite tucks, and a great way to define your waist! To create this look, you are simply tucking the entire front side. You can create this tuck with any style top and even graphic tees. Make sure to fold the fabric under so the material doesn’t stick out too much.

full tuck

Finally, the classic! I will only do a full tuck if the top is fitted or fits just right. If you try to fully tuck a top that’s too oversized, what will happen as you wear the top, the fabric will loosen around the waist and look very unflattering.
