I love to tuck in my shirt… into jeans, skirts, pants, you name it. How do you avoid the unsightly fabric and button bumps from the tucked-in shirt?? I need to know your secret! —Emilee
Good question! And I have few tricks up my tucked-in shirt sleeve:
1. Choose a bottom with a thicker fabric.
In March, I featured a bandage skirt in the ttF Fashion Staples Series. The material is thick enough that it hides that unsightly fabric. Same thing in February when I featured wide-leg pants. The heavier material meant you couldn’t see any of the shirt. (It of course helps too when your top is a thin, tighter fabric.)
2. Watch the length of your tops.
Either go with a short top that falls just below the waist line of your bottom (sometimes I actually cut my camis since I stock up on them for $2.50 from Forever 21). Or, go with an extra-long one that ends just above the hem, like I did here.
3. Tuck your top into your shapewear.
I know it sounds strange but this trick really works! In this post, I wore a thinner jersey skirt. When I tucked my cardigan in you could see the buttons. So I slipped on a pair of Spanx and tucked the cardigan into the shapewear. It smoothed out the buttons, along with my bottom!
