Is this tucked shirt w/ chinos good fit?

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but when I tuck in this shirt with these pants, I dislike my silhouette. I don't usually tuck anything in so it might be my head but I want to get other's opinions. Idk it feels like my thighs and lower body just looks too big proportionally after tucking in. I'm a shorter guy (5'6") so I thought tucking would give me a better proportionate fit but it doesn't feel like it. The last pic I included shows me with it untucked which I think looks pretty notmal/decent. I'm very new to this still so please go easy on me, just want actionable advice.

Tuck looks good imo Probably just not a silhouette you’re used to as you said Maybe a belt would help? My other actionable advice would be to go for some straight fit chinos, I think that would also help the silhouette

Hmm, yeah maybe I'm really just not used to it yet. I feel like when I see pics of guys with the tuck, it looks more sleek whereas mine looks meh, esp in the first pic Hmm, I might explore that actually! Maybe the drape would help a little, idk thank you!

tapered slim cut on the pants I think is kinda wack but yeah the tuck looks fine

Either really. I personally just don't really like the carrot silhouette from slim tapered pants

Yeah I’d go straight fit first as I think it’s gonna feel more natural to you than relaxed But either would work better than the tapered

For reference the mid rise on the chinos make tucking in easier and looks better imo
