Belts That Fits Your Style

Whatever the belt trends is in this season, choose the one that fits your body shape and style is the wise choice. Don’t follow others just because some item is hot, it may not the one for you. So first understand yourself and make the pick based on the clothes you already have, otherwise, you would waste more time and money to looking for the apparel to go with the stylish belt you are bought with a big sum.

Different body shape fits in different belts
Petite women
Petite women need to keep clothes in line, slim narrow belts. A slight contrast in colors and fitted lines will flatter you endlessly. Also stay with fabrics that are soft and flowing that fits well. Over powering prints should be avoided.

Tall women
Tall women can indulge in wide belts, avoiding tight clothes and skirts that are to short or to long. Beauty expert Stephanie Faber recommends tall women play down their waist by wearing their blouses over the pants and skirts and avoid tight belts.

Belts at the Hips
Low-slung belts draw the eye to more womanly curves: the hips. The most relaxed and casual mode of wearing a belt, hip-hugging belts do wonders for tunics, casual shift dresses, trendy low-rise jeans and boho skirts, adding a ring of color and a finishing touch of flair and personality to the outfit.

Belt at the Waist
Tightly fastened, bellybutton grazing belts are the by far the most popular way to rock the belt this season:
Wear thick or thin waist-level leather belts with a pair of high-waited trouses belted over a naughty secretary pencil skirt, or cinched over a simple shift dress.

Tie together separates – tops, sweaters, skirts, trousers or jeans – by wearing a waist-hugging thick or thin belt over light layers for a more refined look. Give definition to day dresses by nipping them in with textured, woven, cut-out or plaited medium and thick belts.

Amp up the allure of a curve-flattering dress with a patent leather belt or a decorative belt studded with crystals, rhinestones, gemstones, sequins, and metallic finishes. Accentuate your curves and add sharp focus to tailored jackets and structured shirts by looping your waist with a belt.
