Cinch It

Defined waists are making a comeback. Although belts are functional, sometimes finding the one that meets a certain fashion standard can be difficult. Belts have been and always will be a thing. Usually belts are a means to hold up pants, but often women like to use belts to create an ensemble.

There are a variety of ways that belts can bring style to a lady’s wardrobe. Even that simple brown leather belt adds polish, looped into jeans with a tucked-in shirt. Also, you can pull together a basic pencil skirt and blouse with a wide waist-cincher, transform a plain day dress into something cocktail worthy with a jeweled belt or tone down a flowy chiffon frock by adding a braided leather belt.

When you want to make a style statement, the wide belt should be your weapon of choice. These belts look best when paired with form-fitting clothing, such as an A-line or sheath dress. As a bonus, the wide belt can act as a fantastic waist cincher and tummy tamer; you can sometimes find these belts offered in corset-like styles.

The chain belt is comprised of interlocking loops of metal, which can be thick or thin. These belts can be plain or embellished, and make for a fun addition to any flowing top. Giving off an edgy vibe, we’d recommend pairing this belt with your favorite jeans and statement booties.

So, if you’re feeling ready to up your accessory game, take a cue from your favorite trendsetters and give the belted look a try!
