An often overlooked and underappreciated accessory. Yet, a great belt can make you look slimmer, pulled together, accentuate curves, and add bling to an otherwise bland outfit. A thick black belt on a black dress instantly narrows the waist and highlights your curves. A skinny belt on a low-slung trouser makes you look polished. But the belt is not just about the silhouette. Think of your belts as pieces of jewelry. Look for unique designs, styles, fabrics, and big buckles. Try out corset belts, hip belts, ethnic styles, red crocodile, green python, zebra print, etc. These are the kinds of belts that you can add to a white dress, a black dress, or jeans and T-shirt-and in seconds the look is transformed.

A wide belt around the slimmest part of your waist creates an instant hourglass. Cinch it!

A skinny belt works best with a low-slung or high-waisted trouser.

If the belt is big and/or bold, keep the jewelry simple. Let the belt be the focal point.


A belt is a great way to get a piece of a designer collection without spending a fortune. Most designers will have a signature belt each season, and if you can get your hands on it, you’ll be able to achieve the look without splurging for the entire outfit.
