4 genius ways to tuck in a shirt

A step-by-step guide to a life-changing style tip.

At the risk of sounding too dramatic, mastering these four genius ways to tuck your shirt will change your life. Here’s how… shirts that were once too long or too boxy that hung unworn in your closet will suddenly fit just right. The outfit that was once ho-hum will be transformed to stylish in a snap. And you will become the “stylish one” that can make a simple t-shirt and jeans look elevated and chic. Pro Stylist Kate shows us step-by-step how to master these four tucks. Are you ready?

1. The Front Tuck

Works to define your waist, show off a hint of a belt, and gives shape to boxy and bulky tops.

 

STEP 1: Grab the front edge of the top leaving about four inches between your hands.front tuck step 1

 

STEP 2: Next, tuck about 1.5 to 2 inches into the front, aiming for the center section of your pants. Using your belt loops as a guide work as a great. front tuck step 2

 

 

2. The Side Tuck

Accomplishes everything that the front tuck does, just with a bit more flare.
