Half-Tuck Shirt Trend

Are You on the Half-Tucked Shirt Bandwagon?

To tuck or not to tuck? That is this Summer's shirt-styling question. Luckily, we've got Stella McCartney and chic street stylers like Elin Kling providing an easy compromise — the half-tucked shirt. We first noticed the styling trend in our beloved J.Crew catalogs and, with Resort 2013 showing off similarly undone silhouettes (look to Rebecca Taylor's sportier wares for proof), we thought it time to test-drive the trend, too. See below right for evidence of the half-tuck in action. It's got a laid-back feel to it with all the makings of a "borrowed from the boys" statement, although some may argue that it just appears messy and haphazard. Now, after spotting the half-in, half-out look on some of the fashion industry's finest (even Vogue Paris editrix Emmanuelle Alt rocks it), we have to ask: does this trend look ultrasloppy or do you think of it as a way to achieve that effortlessly undone vibe?

I think youth and skinny make it work. I, on the other hand, am neither of those things. I won't do it.
