To tuck or not to tuck?

There are probably those days that you are feeling a bit frumpy and it seems like your outfit is just not coming together.  If you one of those encounter those days, try this trick - tuck in your shirt.  For the last few years, I have been wearing a lot of tunics, so this trick was not so useful to me.  With the recent trends of high waisted pants coming back in style, I have re-discovered the magic of tucking.  Then, I realized that it works with low waisted pants too, as long as your shirt is long enough to be tucked in.  By doing so, you will give your outfit more shape and less 'blah'.

A picture is worth more than a thousand words, so here is the comparison.  I am wearing the exact same thing in both pictures, the only difference is untucked t-shirt and tucked t-shirt.  Notice how much more 'put together' the outfit looks with just one simple trick.  Your legs also look slightly longer since your top is not covering part of your bottom.

Shirt:  Marc by Marc Jacobs
Jeans: 7 for All Mankind Flynt
Shoes: Prada sport wedges
Belt: Rough Roses
Cats: Tippy and Tasha

Give it a try if you haven't already, it'll bring you a different look.
