I'm way into tucking my shirts in. I mean, I literally tuck in everything from my fitted white tees, to the oversized white button-ups that I steal from my husband. But there's absolutely more than just one way to do it—you've more than likely seen or tried the half-tuck, and you may have even used the front tuck. But I believe that there's a certain tuck for every shirt you have. While I'm all about tucking in my sweatshirts, I'd never tuck em in fully for fear of looking like a donut, and I'd never tuck an oversized tee into a pair of high-waisted mom jeans, since the final result looks frumpy. I think you see what I'm getting at, but watch this clip for the ultimate visual.

Kristin Cavallari in her Naven Oversize Crop Blouse ($220, left); Katie Holmes and Khloe Kardashian in the Equipment Signature Blouse ($208, center & right) The silk safari blouse is dressier and more feminine than its chambray and cotton counterparts, but it's every bit as wearable. Dress it up like Kristin Cavallari (left) with swingy shorts - her's are Naven, $110 at Singer22 - and nude pumps, or complete the menswear-inspired look with a pair of fitted cargo pants like Khloe Kardashian (right). The best thing about this trend is that there are endless ways to incorporate this blouse into your existing wardrobe no matter your personal style...but once it's in your closet don't plan on it staying there too long because it will likely become one of your most rotated-in pieces.

What happens when the stars aren't aligning for you -- literally. This week's news of the shifting Zodiac, threw me, and apparently a bunch of others, into planetary/wardrobe chaos. If you're having a Zodiac-related identity crisis, here is our cheat sheet for upgrading your wardrobe to match your new sign: CAPRICORN: You're practical, so versatile and comfortable clothing, like a great pair of black pants, just makes sense.
