The Power of a Great Belt

No matter what your body shape is, the perfect belt can give you curves in all the right places! Use a belt to enhance and flatter your look.

Here are tips on how to wear a belt for your body shape (from my friend Sunil):

  • AppleSoft knit belts or cord belts tied to the side create an illusion of a waist without emphasizing it. Never wear a belt across your mid section and stay with colors that match your outfit.
  • Pear – Choose a mid-width belt; avoid anything skinny or very wide. Stay in the same color family as your outfit and wear it slightly lower on your waist.
  • Pencil – Avoid anything too wide; wear it at your true waistband create a soft blouson effect by pulling at the fabric on top.This will give the effect of soft curves and is very flattering.
  • Hourglass – Belts are great on you and you should be wearing them almost all the time. They should always be worn at the middle of your waist and the smallest point and dark colors flatter you best.

Not only will a belt enhance your shape, it can be a pop of color that accents your waist over an all black ensemble or a neutral colored belt to cinch in your waist as an accessory, too.

In any season, a belt can be the perfect accessory to a shirt, dress or high-waisted pants.  It can make you feel “thinner” on those bloated days and/or give you the curves you are looking for all while being fashionable, too!
