The Power of a Belt

by Glamorouslady_x

A belt can transform an outfit - it can make all the difference to a simple garment. It can be worn over a dress, a skirt, trousers and even a few other items that you would never think of adding a belt to!

I am ashamed to admit that I have only discovered the power of a belt about a year ago. I’ve always considered a belt to be an unnecessary accessory. However, once you use one to accentuate your outfit you’ll never look back! Take this very simple casual shirt dress, it’s just a plain dress.

However, as soon as I added the belt to this plain shirt dress, it cinched in my waist, accentuated my figure and completely changed the whole outfit.

A belt does not necessarily need to only be worn over a dress, skirt or trousers. In recent years a new trend has appeared, where a belt can be worn over a scarf or even a blazer. Once again, this cinches in the waist and accentuates the figure whilst adding and changing the whole look of an otherwise simple outfit.

In my opinion, a belt is a must in every wardrobe!
