Trend Alert: Don't Muck Up The Tuck
February 26, 2006
To all you trendy tuckers out there shoving your flares into a pair of boots, I say STOP. Bunching is not beautiful. Get a pair of skinny jeans like Brit ‘It’ girls Kate Moss and Sienna Miller. Hot with heels or tucked if you must, Vintage skinny Jordache jeans can be found at Nordstrom.com (145.00). If your body is not built for skinny, go for a sexy straight leg. Find the Tom 5-Pocket Dark Tulsa at eLuxury.com from James cured by Seun (aka James jeans). If you’re working with a skintight shoe you can cheat with a crop. Avoid unsightly ankle bulge with Rock & Republic Ciggy Slim stretch jeans. But be careful- there absolutely cannot be any leg showing between mid-calf boot and the hem of your denim. It’s an epic faux pas and will not be tolerated. Tuck with caution. Trends can be treacherous. Find the straight and narrow at Nordstrom.com.
