half in


One small way to look current this season is to wear your blouse kind of half in. Tuck the front half into your skinny jeans or skinny trouser and leave the back half kind of billowing out behind you. The extra volume created by leaving the back half out works well with the narrowness of a skinny pant. It’s all a play on proportion.

One big way to be half in is to pick up a pair of Valentino ‘Rockstud’ Pumps. Go half in by doing the flat or in this case, the 2 1/1″ inch heel, a newer version of the original sky-high one. The real fashion crowd has worn the ‘Rockstud’ for three years now, feeling this is going to be a wardrobe classic so finally went there. This here is every day dress so being a little late to the trend game is okay and good.

Liking the look of the pale pink silk blouse? You can see that here and in three more colors at upcoming Spring Summer Trunk Show, by appointment. Liking the look of the skinny Quinn pant? That too will be here in Spring and Summer weight fabrics. As for the Valentino shoe, can definitely help you find that on the internet, come try mine on first, you know I love sharing the shoe wardrobe.

  1. LOVE! THE! SHOES! I’m still up in the air about the half tuck, I want my skinny belts to show but it’s kinda sloppy … Like a fashion mullet, biz in the front party in the back. Maybe I’m not wearing the right cut for the shirt.

  2. I need this outfit for my new OFFICE job!! Especially those shoes – size 40. xo
