Visually creates a waist & draws the eye up to your waist rather than leaving your body visually one long line. Grab the front of your top & tuck, then tuck a bit on each side. Loosen a little as necessary.

π˜Ώπ™Š: when you have a thinner top that is not too long paired with a mid to high rise pants/skirt
π˜Ώπ™Šπ™‰β€™π™: tuck super tight, but also not too much fabric hanging out

I usually keep this for dressier occasions. When I want to look more tailored for work, am layering, want my bottom layer tucked in for a less bulky look, or when I am wearing a high waisted pant & want a streamlined look. Another reason to full tuck is if the waist of the garment is made to be shown off like the currently trendy paper bag waist. Doing anything other than a full tuck on it won’t work.

π˜Ώπ™Š: for a tailored look with a high waisted bottom & slim top or when the waistline calls for it
π˜Ώπ™Šπ™‰β€™π™: with a low waist or a chunky top

Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing! The reasons for this would be if the shirt has a specific hem like a peplum or a band at the bottom, or it’s a long tunic made to be worn out.

π˜Ώπ™Š: leave your blouse untucked when the shape is made to be that way
π˜Ώπ™Šπ™‰β€™π™: when your pants are lower rise & will accentuate your hips. Don’t tuck with a thick top that will create a pouch effect in the front because it doesn’t tuck nicely. Remember, the goal is visually showing your waist, not creating a bunch of fabric.

This is a fun option if you are feeling bored or brave. It’s easy to do with a thinner t-shirt that has a little length or a tie front top to mix things up a little.

π˜Ώπ™Š: when you want a fun alternative to the other tucking options & you have a thinner material. When you want your outfit layering not to look loose and bulky
π˜Ώπ™Šπ™‰β€™π™: when it’s too thick/makes a huge, long knot
