Simple Styling Trick: Belt It

One-Minute Makeover Tip: Belt It

Ever look at yourself in the mirror and wish you looked just a tad better, a touch chicer, a bit more polished? We have, which is why we're introducing our quick-hit tips for instant style gratification. There are some very simple things you can do to instantly improve your look, and it doesn't require money or loads of time. We culled our adorable Fab readers for inspiration. First up, a trick we love: belt it.

  • Cinching the waist with a wide or skinny belt is maybe the easiest way to flatter your figure. For fuller figures, try a wider belt to balance your curves and hug your waistline.
  • It doesn't require an entirely new outfit, no new purchases, just the simple addition of a waist-defining belt on any of your looks.
  • It instantly draws attention to your narrowest point, and works for all body types — and nearly every occasion.
  • Keep a couple of belts in your office drawer — if you find you're going out for a post-work drink, you can elevate that work dress instantly.

^I agree. While I love belts I hate it when people wear them all the time.

I love belts, and they can really change the entire complexion of an outfit - some outfits even need a belt. One caveat, however: not every outfit needs a belt and some outfits can be ruined by a belt. Let's not go crazy ladies...
