Oh mah goodness… I’m posting this as an emergency. (Sorry for the terrible pic.)
Based on the comments here some of you never wear belts, I guess.
Whether or not you have muffin top issues… whether your pants fit you correctly or not… may I please introduce the quarter-tuck.
For casual dressing, I like this because it shows your belt buckle (which is totally part of the outfit, and the part that matters most on the belt anyway) but you don’t have to tuck all the way around. This can also help cinch a wider-fitting top but a smidge, so you don’t feel like you’re wearing a dress.
Tuck slightly to one side (as opposed to right in the middle) and inch your buckle over a little bit too. It works, I tell you. Try this at home.
