Tuck it in

Tuck it in, tuck it in...I am willing to bet that you just sang that as you read it,right? Sorry about that, for some reason I thought today's title needed a song to go along with it. 

Last Friday was another “Jeans Day” at work, my evening after work was looking pretty busy so I need an outfit that could easily transition from day to night.  I have been feeling like my country roots lately so I decided to indulge by pairing my flower print crochet tank with my new AE distressed denim. The two items made a perfect pair besides the fact that I hate the way this shirt fits me. Usually, I love longer shirts but this one is long and loose which does not flatter my chest or my waist.  
Have you noticed a lot of people wearing the fronts of their shirts tucked in? I have seen it everywhere and have kind of passed this look off as a hipster trend. Well wouldn’t you know that there is a purpose behind this? It has successfully solved my problem of hating the way this particular shirt hung on my body. I was able to tailor my look by just tucking in the front of my shirt and adding a belt, simple enough! It had a similar outcome as tying a button up.
I am really pleased with the effectiveness of this little secret. I will definitely be utilizing it more often as shirt shopping has been EXTREMELY difficult lately with all the styles being “oversized”. It’s like the clothing designers have forgotten that there’s a whole group of women out there that have actually grown out of their training bras. J Go ahead, give it a try!
