The comeback of the untucked shirt (and our thoughts on it)

In this section, we discuss the revival of trends or it-pieces we’d never expect to make its comeback. We elaborate on the particular trend, tell our thoughts on it and offer you the best items for those who are convinced. And because we totally accept that this trend might not be for you, we also offer some alternatives. This edition: the untucked shirt. We can’t longer deny its revival.

The untucked shirt, a not so new trend

The untucked shirt – it’s a revived trend. Or maybe we could better call it a lifestyle. Can you remember the last time you didn’t tuck in your shirt? As jeans and pants in general high more and more high waisted, the credo seemed to be “tuck it in there or be square”. Well, this era has come to an end.

A new fashion era

So, why is the untucked shirt a recently often spotted phenomenon? Well, the fashion industry is finally loosening up. Boundaries are slowly fading away, unambiguous trends are non-existent and gender neutral garments are the new norm. Therefore, loose silhouettes form a logical next step. What do relaxed blouses, big sweaters and oversized hoodies have in common? They’re all unable to be tucked in, so don’t even try.

Comfortable fashion

We like the fact that this trend leads us to more comfortable fashion. Despite the saying “form over function” is still very popular in the fashion scene, comfort seems to be the new black. So, buy a pair of mid-waist pants, a loose shirt or blouse and go for it. If you still feel a bit uncomfortable while wearing this new chic, then add a pair of heels and you’ll be good to go.

This tropical explosion doesn’t only look good on the beach, but also with your wide fit white jeans and a pair of boots or high heels. Even though it’s perfectly suited to tuck in, please don’t do so (or at least if you’re on team untucked).

Mike Amiri is a LA native, which can be seen in the latest Amiri collection. Not only is LA’s surf culture very on point, the big silhouettes are also very on trend. The designer isn’t afraid of big cardigans, shirts and sweaters and that’s how we like it.

5. Monse oversized asymmetric sweater
