I’m sure we all remember a time when the normal thing to be done was to tuck our pants into our boots regardless of pant or boot style. Since it’s obvious that this style has made a strong return, but does this mean anything and everything goes?? Tucking methods vary based on boot height as a number one factor and pant style as a second. Whereas it’s common sense that over-the-knee boots require skinny jeans, sometimes things are not so clear cut! Read below for tips and inspo on how to wear your tucked-in pants this season stylishly and effortlessly!
1 || Western Boots
Western boots are usually quite heavy but they can easily fit in any pair of loose-fitting pants such as a linen number or a jogger like Kendall’s. Nowadays your pants can bunch up at the top of your boots and that would still be definitely ok.
2 || Slouchy Mid-Length
So many fashion-forward women are embracing this style! Slouchy mid-length boots, especially if they’re white and pointy are perfect to pair with neutral pants and all the more stylish if the pants bunch up a lot!
3 || Utility Pants
Another über-stylish outfit inspo is this combination of oversized utility leather pants ballooning out of patterned ankle boot. This is a look that screams style first and comfort a close second. Utility pants can also be dressed up with sleek ankle boots or dressed down with chunky winter boots.
4 || Mixing Textures
If you’re as fashion-savvy as you claim to be then you may have obviously picked up on the elusive fact that suede is back. That being said, mix up your textures like a pro by tucking in a pair of leather pants into your slouchy suede boots.
5 || Straight-Leg Denim
It’s not just about the boot style, like we previously explained, it’s also about the pant style. Case in point here are the straight-leg pants, these can easily get tucked in your Western boots since these boots almost always sport a bit more room at the top. Take it up a notch and tuck it into your combat boots for maximum bunch up. Or wear them with knee high boots and a blazer.
6 || Tonal Tucking
Keeping it slightly monochrome can allow you to subtly play around with most types of shoe styles and pant styles as well. Take your inspo from the image above to mix tonal dressing with pattern clashing; don’t be afraid to shake things up by pairing a side-striped pant with a checked knee-high boot to make a semi-safe statement!
7 || Joggers
This is perhaps the most confusing trend of all but it shouldn’t be, especially if you keep track of certain celebrities who glamorise controversial trends. Now perhaps you don’t need to go all out and pair your joggers with glittery slouchy boots, or maybe you can. But you probably need to take a few style pointers from Emily and Gigi and tuck your joggers into a pair of dressy white boots.
8 || Bermuda Pants
This definitely doesn’t qualify as a tuck in, obviously, but many are confused as to how to style the pants of the season. You can copy Gigi’s lead and pair them with over-the-knee boots, or you can be more on trend and wear a pair of mock-croc knee-high boots or a slightly slouchy black number, with the top just skimming the end of the bermuda pants.
