Hey - haven't seen you guys for a while. I'm sorry for my brief departure, but I'm back~
I notice that blogs seem to grab "inspiration" from one another - especially when it comes to styling. Recently I've been seeing a lot of the half tuck and the top knot.
|Hand in hair, top knot in place, flamingo pose, admiring the ground - my most original picture to date.|
To start with the positive - I really do like the top knot. I'm not exactly good at it, but they're flattering. Looks great with collared shirts.
Now, onto the bad - the half tuck. Based on my "research", I believe that J. Crew started doing this, then popular fashion bloggers, then regular bloggers. I really don't understand what is appealing about this look. I think fully tucked in shirts look much better than leaving a flap out or just tucking in the middle.
Maybe the half tuck is only popular because J.Crew (and Madewell, much to my chagrin) is doing it and bloggers want to attract them as sponsors? Or maybe people actually do like the half tuck.
I would love to talk about this in the comments! If you do like it, tell me so. Thought provoking discussion can be had even when it comes to fashion.
|Gotta love the reflection of my boyfriend.|
P.S. - This is only a taste of some new, more opinionated and "discussion promoting" content that I plan on bringing to my corner of the Internet. Stay tuned!
