What are you tucking in to? If it's tshirt and jeans, then I find that if you catch just the hem of your tshirt into the waistband of your jeans at the side, then it looks ok, kind of casual, but not square. I do know exactly what you mean, I am an apple shape and hate tucking things in as it seems to emphasise my stomach, so I wear lots of tops with shaped hems, bubble hems, wrap overs....basically anything that won't need tucked in. If I had to wear a skirt for work (thank the sweet baby cheeses i dont), I would wear fine knit jumpers, or dresses, rather than have to try and make the skirt/blouse combo work for me........because in 50 years, I have never managed it!
