Fashion Over 40: The Half Tuck Shirt

Watching fashions change fascinates me.

I love it when I can remember when the “new thing” used to be in style.

Take the tucking-in-your-shirt dilemma.

I remember when it was totally in vogue to tuck your shirt in your super high-waited jeans with a super wide belt.

Then it was cool to have your shirts  untucked and flowing freely.

Now, it seems  appropriate to have a little of each.

I’ve watched it on fashion blogs and found it slightly baffling fascinating from the start.

Having a shirt tucked in a bit in the front helps give better proportion between the legs and body (and the illusion of an acutal “waist”!;))

It’s particularily helpful on a short person like me whose shirts tend to be a tad long sometimes.

Isn’t it funny how we work so hard to make ourselves look just the right amount of easy-going and messy? 😉
