I’ve been absolutely terrible with sticking to my commitment to make a weekly post on wearing vintage at the office. I do still wear a lot of vintagesque outfits to work, I just keep forgetting to photograph myself before I head out the door. I know what you’re thinking: Why can’t you just take photos after work, Katie? Well, I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite moments of the day is taking off my work clothes and putting on my regular clothes, or even better, my pajamas. Don’t get me wrong, I love my vintage wardrobe, but cinching belts and pantyhouse are not the most comfortable things in the world. All that to say, my vintage at the office posts may not be as frequent as I’d like. I promise I’ll try harder, though!
This week’s post is all about the miracle of the tuck. Tucking can be very forgiving, especially for ill-fitting shirts, which a lot of thrifted blouses tend to be. A tuck can also make your outfit look more professional and dressier. Not to mention that it gives you the opportunity to show off a funky belt (like the one I’m wearing here, which is a secondhand pony-themed children’s belt). I also find tucking is more fitting with the vintage style I tend to go for. When I was younger, I was very anti-tuck because I thought it would make me look old-fashioned. Funnily enough, that is exactly why I love tucking shirts in now.
Try it out for yourself – give a tuck!
