    Great post! Love the look of a tucked in shirt, but it always seems to look a little sloppy or lumpy when I try. I’ll definitely be trying your method when I get dressed for work tomorrow!

    I love to do the half tuck – it shows off a coordinating belt, and I think it’s very flattering as far as accenting a waist while concealing hips. It’s also good for throwing a cardigan or blazer on top, so you get a peak of the blouse from the back.
