Fab Body Guide: 1-2-3 Belts!

Day in and day out I see belt abuse. The belt is a fabulous accessory that is here to stay, but so many women do not know how to style them. There are a couple things to consider: the clothes you are pairing them with and your body type. I have taken a stand and created a little belt guide. I hope it's helpful and please spread the word! Proper belt users unite!


To create womanly curves:

Create a classic look like this Liz Claiborne Retro Polka-Dot Dress with white belt, $129. A corset-style belt carves out the waist and draws the eye inward giving you an hourglass figure.

To hide a tummy:

You want to go with a wide belt that slightly dips in the front. This Hobo International 'Strength' Belt, $78, is cute and is worn a bit lower to offset a poochy stomach. It creates a nice blouson effect that is romantic and classic.



To play down wide hips:

This Urban Outfitters Skinny Patent Belt, on sale for $15 (originally $24), is ideal. With a skinny style you can position it slightly above the natural waistline. This will elongate your legs and narrow your hips.
