How this street-style trend can serve you in surprisingly simple ways.

This is the trend that we are adapting from the street-style scene: the tucking trick. And no, it’s not what you think, we are obviously talking about shoes. Already briefly suggested in the ‘Big Season Edit’, we are here to tell you how to master it. Surely a trend that adds some practicality to your winter styling; no more slush soaked hems and ruined pumps, but we are especially loving it for the versatility it brings to your wardrobe. Chances are you already own the pieces required for this trick. 

The best boots for this comes with a wider calf, so look for ones with a straight, loose fit or scrunched ones where you can fit your trousers in without bulging. Your Balenciaga knife over-knees are not for this one. Opt for a boot that cuts right under your knee. These are our favourites to shop now.

You’ll then need loose fitting trousers, high-wasted for all the ones that haven’t, ahem, drawn the height card in the gene lottery. Carrot legged and straight cut trousers will be your best pick. We are loving the following.

And finally, style with a matching blazer, knit, white shirt – you name it! Blessed be the fact that this look looks better the more you layer. So play with proportions and wear your winter warmers with confidence.
