Easy-peasy!
IMAGE Pinterest ART Clare Magno

As much as we love to play dress up, we got to admit that we do have our days when we'd rather just spend time under the sheets than standing in front of our closets wondering what to wear. While we do have our lazy days and we know you girls have your own, too, that doesn't mean that you should scrimp on style already. And what better way to jazz up your OOTD minus the effort than a quick tuck and fold?

For days when you want to look on-point without spending too much time in front of the mirror, bring out the stylist in you and try out these six easy styling tucks and folds every lazy girl will surely love!

The Pin Roll

This '80s inspired fold is a great way to inject an instant dose of cool to your classic OBJs! To score this cool fold, pinch the outer portion of the pant leg and fold it on the side to create a tighter fit. While still holding the fold in place, carefully roll up your pants two to three times depending on the length you want to achieve. This will keep the tight folds in place and a great way to show off your new pair of shoes, too!

The Front Tuck

Instead of tucking your shirt all the way around, aim for an effortless look by casually tucking only the front side of your top. Whether you tuck it tightly or loosely, depending on the look you're gunning for, you can be sure that you'll look amazing either way.

The Asymmetrical Tuck

Make a stylish splash without trying too hard with the asymmetrical tuck. This styling tuck adds a hint of playfulness to an otherwise minimalist look. To score this look, don't button your top all the way up. Leave some buttons undone at the end and tuck one side in while leaving another side out. Easy-peasy!

The Knot

Great for cinching an oversized top or a too stretchy shirt, grab enough fabric on one side of your top, twist it, and knot it!

J Crew Cuff Fold

An updated version of the classic sleeve roll, instead of bunching your long-sleeve tops to create faux half-sleeves, try the J Crew cuff fold! Grab the unbuttoned cuffs of your shirt sleeve and fold it once until the cuff reaches your arm halfway. Then, roll the parts below the cuff up until it covers the seam and you've got yourself a cool, undone look for the day.

The Wrap Tuck

Give your classic button-down a modern update with the nifty wrap tuck! While your shirt is still unbuttoned, take one side of your button-down, wrap it across your body, and tuck it in the opposite side. Do the same for the other side, and you've scored yourself a flattering wrap top! You can wear a camisole inside if you're going for a looser fit or you can wear it alone! If you opt for the latter, make sure to secure the tucks well enough so that they don't budge!

Which of these tucks are you going to try first?

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
