Belt it Out!

By Catherine Cassidy

Want an incredibly simple and quick way to update your wardrobe and really pull together your look? Add a belt!

I know some of you might be wary of this idea and have passed on it for quite a while, but now’s the time to try it! It’s never been easier … especially with so many designers adding the belt for you!

One of my style tenets is ‘mind your waist’ because this is how you’ll create the hourglass effect whether or not your body actually is hourglass (which only accounts for 2-4% of women, so don’t fret!).

And it’s so reasonable to add to your wardrobe because you can find great belts for $15-$50 at places such as J.Crew, Nordstrom, H&M, etc. LOVE.

Depending on your body type, the trick is simple: the thicker your waist, the thicker your belt. I love belts with elastic at the back because it allows for a bit of flexibility which equals a more comfortable fit.
