When it Doesn’t Work for You

Today I want to talk about a little discussed topic… when trends don’t work for you! I picked up this J. Crew button up on super-clearance after seeing it all over the web being worn in the “half-tucked/half-untucked” trend. I loved that slouchy cool look and was pumped to pull it off for myself! But y’all I’m going to be real honest, when I half-tucked my shirt I just looked a fool! I don’t know what happened, but somehow on my frame the trend just fizzled out. Boo! But you know what? I loved it on me untucked and fancy-free! So I tell you this to say, that trends are fun for inspiration, but at the end of the day you have to wear what make you look and feel as fabulous as you are! ๐Ÿ™‚

So here is the trend gone wrong! Enjoy these silly pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Thursday friends!

    I'm not a half tucked person either. I think it's because I'm short, it just doesn't look right. Great top, untucked!

      I think having a short torso is my problem too! Oh well! It's fun to try something new ๐Ÿ™‚

    I always try to do this look! I feel like a fool too, but I don't think it looks that silly on you! I pull it off a little better when I tuck in the whole front of the shirt and leave the back untucked.

    I fell in love with that shirt and bought it when it first came out, but never once thought to wear it tucked in- the sequins are too pretty to hide and I love that it has a bit of a tunic feel because of the length! I am definitely with ya on trends…they have to work for you!

      I think the length and the sparkles are my two favorite features! And you're rightโ€ฆ who wants to hide that shine?! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I always see the half-tuck on other people and it looks so cute but I'm sure I'd look so silly if I tried it lol The shirt and outfit look super adorable un-tucked though! Have a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚
