Tucking has increased in popularity ever since Tan France graced our screens and debuted the ‘French Tuck‘ on Queer Eye. He demonstrated that the average guy should pay attention to the subtle styling details when building a look.
There are, however, a lot of different ways you can tuck in your top that will create a subtle shift in how your outfit looks.
Here are my favourite ways to tuck in your top:
THE ‘FRENCH TUCK’
If you have been living under a rock and missed the ‘French Tuck’ frenzy, here is how you achieve the famous tuck.
Tuck in the middle portion of the hem of your shirt leaving the outer ends and the back hanging down.
For those casual summer days french tucking a t-shirt creates an effortless attitude.
Utilise a belt to secure the tuck in place.
THE FULL TUCK
The full tuck ensures that all loose fabric is safely secured in your bottoms.
Tucking in a shirt adds a formal edge to your look.
For a smart-casual look, tuck your t-shirt cleanly into tailored trousers making sure there is no fabric overhang.
Up the causal attitude by loosening up the tuck for a baggy look.
Tucking a sweater fully into your trousers can be slightly bulky; however, the result is a pleasant texture contrast. I usually tuck in the ribbed portion of the sweater.
THE SIDE TUCK
Choose either the right or left side to tuck in your top to create an asymmetric look.
The side tuck for a t-shirt should be subtle and effortless as if it was an afterthought.
The same applies for a sweater, adding a casual cool to your outfit.
For a shirt, unbutton the last button and fold one half into your trousers.
