Thin or Â wide, bright, or bejewelled, a belt is an easy way to add polish to any outfit. For the true fashionista this accessory is a must have this season. In whatever fabric; satin, velvet, leather or Â metal, the belt Â is making a comeback in a big way.
No more do we wear them Â just to hold our pants. We wear them to be seen. Â Traditionally worn for their gift for pulling in waists to create the most feminine of figures, belts are now migrating all over the feminine body, from just below the bust line, to the natural waist, and even thrown Â low around the hips.
Hereâ€™s how to update your look and how to Â team them with your clothes for that super chic result Â with the seasonâ€™s most stylish belts.
TipsSkinny belts are often fabricated out of very tiny Â strips of leather, chain links and rope. And because skinny belts are so slim, you can go for a bright splash of color or a shimmering metallic finish without dominating the outfit. Â Remember skinny belts are a lovely complement to elegant dresses and separates.
Remember to keep in mind your bodyâ€™s proportions when choosing a belt; an ultra slinky skinny belt might visually add weight to a plus sized woman, whereas a slightly thicker medium width belt will produce a more balanced skinny-belt look.
