What if I told you there was a super simple fashion hack that could could make you look leaner, taller, and more put together? And what if I told you that you could do it in about two seconds? You might think it sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t! This fashion hack is the real deal, and it seems like everyone is talking about it! And depending on how much TV you’ve been watching lately, you might already know about it too!
This particular fashion hack has been around for years, but I didn’t know it had a name until just a few weeks ago. It wasn’t until I was binge-watching the Queer Eye series on Netflix that I actually heard this hack referred to as “The French Tuck!” The Fab Five’s fashion guru Tan France not only sports the French Tuck himself, but he recommends it to several of the makeover recipients over the course of the show. So what is the French Tuck, exactly?
What Is The French Tuck?
To do a French Tuck, you simply tuck the front portion of your shirt into your pants or skirt, leaving the sides and back untucked. It only takes a couple seconds to do, and according to Tan, it can have quite the effect on your overall look! On the show, he says, “It’s going to balance your proportions, and help you look taller and leaner.” This tuck also can also make an outfit feel a little more sophisticated and smart, even when applied to a casual outfit.
Who Can Use The French Tuck?
One of the best things about this particular fashion hack is the fact that anyone can use it! Men, women, and even children of any age can add a French Tuck to their outfit, and it looks great on just about everyone. This versatile hack can also be applied to almost any kind of top, not just dress shirts or button-ups! You can use the French Tuck on a blouse, a sweater, a t-shirt, or any other kind of top!
Why I Love It
After seeing Tan explain the French Tuck on Queer Eye, I started noticing it all over the place! I’ve seen dozens of models sporting the look on retail sites and in catalogs over the past few weeks. I’ve also seen plenty of people in real life sporting the look too. It looked so great on everyone that I had to give it a try for myself. So incorporated it into a few of my own outfits recently, and I’ve been loving the results!
For anyone like myself who feels a bit self-conscious about their tummy area, the French Tuck can help. It helps provide a bit of camouflage around the tummy area, while also making your legs look nice and long. I’ve noticed that when I wear a French Tuck, I tend to feel a bit leaner and more confident! It’s rare that you come across a fashion hack that is truly quick, easy, and costs nothing, so I simply couldn’t resist sharing it with all of you here. And since it is so easy to do, I highly recommend giving the French Tuck a try for yourself! :-)
