Style Help: Different ways to change up an outfit and wear belts
SAME OUTFIT, DIFFERENT LOOKS
A nice neutral shift or an outfit for instance, and you can just throw on different belts and get a completely different tone and look.
BELT A JACKET/COAT/SWEATER
BELT A LOOSE OUTFIT TO TIGHTEN IT UP
CHANGE THE EXISTING BELT
I always wear a different belt than what was given, just to see if it gives another look.
This dress for instance, came with a cheap grey braided polyester belt. I have since gotten rid of it (I hated it), and now do the obi belt thing:
HOW TO FIND THE PERFECT BELT
If you are a full-figured woman, you shouldn’t have a belt that is too skinny because then it looks disproportionate, the same way that wearing stilettos would look awkward and a chunkier heel would look much better.
It’s all about length and width.
If you are very skinny, a belt that is too thick will make it look like a belted cobra is eating your midsection.
Look for a belt that when you put it on, looks… RIGHT to you.
Anywhere from 1″ to 3″ would be the most flattering on most body types.
