The Casual Half Tuck
Nothing is more cool, effortless, and stylish than the half tucked shirt. To get the look, unbutton the last 1-2 buttons of your shirt. Take one side of your shirt and tuck it in the front, from the button to the side seam. Leave the back hanging out.
What matters most about this top-button shirting trick is the type of shirt you style it on. Sheer, soft fabrics and interesting maxi length button-up shirts work best because they keep the look trendy and feminine (not stiff and starchy).
The classic full-tuck. Let’s face it, you should already know how to do this one by now.
Off-duty style is all about comfort, and that why an un-tucked shirt with relaxed, rolled sleeves works well on the weekend. Give your sleeves 1-2 rolls so when your arms are down, they rest just between your elbow and wrist. Don’t be a perfectionist, rolled sleeves don’t have to be symmetrical.
The best part about the button-up shirt? It’s an outfit investment! Buy one and wear it forever. This spring staple is so versatile, it’s a must-have.
