Find Out How to Use Belts for Function and Style

all_about_belts_1
When it comes to styling an outfit, belts are often overlooked, unless they’re needed to keep clothing in place. True fashionistas know there’s more to belts than functionality. A belt can be a great accessory, and with so many options available, now is the time to consider which style works best for you.

Skinny Belts

The skinny belt is a versatile fashion accessory. It can be used to hold both tops and bottoms in place. Our favorite way to wear a skinny belt is with an open cardigan or sweater, using the belt to hold the sweater closed. Paired with your favorite slacks or skinny jeans, this look is preppy and fashionable, without being too forced.

Wide Belts

When you want to make a style statement, the wide belt should be your weapon of choice. Ranging from two to six inches wide, these belts look best when paired with tight, form-fitting clothing, such as a clingy sweater 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. Try placing one over a high-waist skirt and fitted top.

Chain Belts

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 dress or top. Giving off an edgy, rock and roll vibe, we’d recommend pairing this belt with your favorite night-on-the-town ensemble.

Unconventional Belts

Unconventional belts can be made of pretty much anything. You can find them in quirky, trendy boutiques, or fashion one for yourself. When you’re in a rush, a scarf, sash, or even a long necklace can quickly be tied around your waist.

The unconventional belt is both unexpected and welcome, and can add a special kind of flair to any outfit. The key here is to avoid hiding the belt behind pant loops; let is shine by attaching it to your favorite tunic, sweater, or dress.

Belt Buckles

Another way to make your belt extra chic is to consider adding a unique belt buckle. Just as you can switch up an outfit by adding a scarf or a pin, you can change up the look of your belt entirely by adding a snazzy buckle of your choosing. There are endless options available to create hundreds of “new” belts.

Don’t be caught with your pants down on this fashionable trend; invest in a stylish belt today.

Belts are a cool accessory for dresses. It makes the oufit more stylish and trendy; but, I personally don't like wearing them just because it just doesn't fit my style. I like creating looks that is a little different from everyone eles. This comment has been removed.

I've always wanted to try the wide belt with a skirt and top, but I just don't think I can pull it off. Definitely need to add to my belt collection though. This comment has been removed.
