The Half Front Tuck:

To tuck or not to tuck? That is the question. Well, you can have both by going for a half-tuck—tucked in the front, loose in the back. Take things up a notch by tucking into your front pocket for a high-fashion twist.

The Shirt Loop Pull:

Instead of a front tuck, you can also try the shirt loop pull for a similar effect. Feed the end of your shirt through a belt loop at your hip, then twist and tuck the excess fabric away and you’ve got a twist-knot hem!

The Floppy Sleeve Cheat:

Extra-long sleeves got you down? Don’t fret! Simply use a hair elastic at your forearms for those oversized, floppy sleeves to keep them rolled up. Make sure to bunch them up so the folds hide the elastic.

The Turtleneck Hack:

Use a safety pin at the back of a loose turtleneck to tighten up the neckline. This hack is great for when you want to showcase your favorite necklace.

The Slip Tuck:

Transform your slips into tanks by simply tucking the hemline under your bra. This will create a shorter balloon hem, and you’ll have everyone fooled! This also works well with longer sweaters that you want to crop.
