One small change: Tuck in your collar

One small change: Tuck in your collar

Why make the change

"This one's quite obvious: no matter whether it's a polo shirt or button-down—and no matter whether you undo the top button or do your shirt all the way up—an outfit looks more understated, and sharper, with the collar tucked in."

Thread's style director, Shaunie Brett

Why this works

  1. The collar is soft, so it fits nicely under a crew-neck jumper. "If your shirt has a starchier collar, it might look better with a v-neck jumper, which leaves room for the stiffer collar."
  1. The collar doesn't interfere with the rest of the look. "The tucked-in collar is unfussy. It doesn't look as if you're posing for photo day at school."
