How to French tuck or half tuck

Do you tuck in your top or leave it untucked? Before, people either tucked in a shirt, or they didn’t. But now, some people tuck in only part of the shirt. There are two ways to do this: the French tuck and the half tuck.

These are casual looks. Use loose, lightweight tops and mid-to-high rise bottoms for these partly tucked looks.

For the French tuck, loosely tuck in part of the front of the top. You can tuck in the middle or slightly off-centre. Leave the back and sides hanging out.

For the half tuck, undo any bottom buttons. Then tuck in just one side of the front. Leave the other side of the front hanging out.
