THE HEAVY HITTER - HERMES
|Scarf as a belt|
|Scarf as a scarf & H belt as a belt|
|Scarf as a trench belt|
THE WIDE BELT
This one's tricky for 85% of women - if in doubt, switch to a narrower width.
Oh & give yourself enough time so that if you need to switch,
you have the time to make the correct selection.
|Vera Wang - eccentric fashion to the max. |
Don't try this at home.
FLORAL DRESS? SKINNY BELT PLEASE
|The ties and curves on an obi sash |
can work well to flatter a waist.
|You need a terrific figure to pull this off. |
If in doubt, narrow the belt.
|Want to lengthen your legs? Keep the belt the same colour as your bottom.|
Want to lengthen your waist? Keep the belt the same colour as your top.
If you have a fabulous waist & want to show it off? Make the belt high contrast.
|For maximum all round flattery, |
keep Mr Belt thin & Ms Sweater fine.
|A chunky sweater can be hard to pull off - only for the skinny.|
|For an oversize long sweater, keep the belt soft & blousony.|
If the belt has body, keep it on the narrow side.
|Burberry AW 2012/13|
|A ribbon belt = Lincraft + bow tying skill. |
Easy when you know how.
THE L-O-N-G BELT
|Extra long, hanging loose so it slims.|
I buy two belts & buckle them together to get the longer length.
|Wrap around belt. Be careful. |
In this case, its not sitting at her arrowest waist
& so it makes her look blocky.
Avoid blocky. Not a good look.
|Its all in the buckle & the extras.|
THE CHAIN BELT
|None other than Chanel|
|Belt or necklace? Either will do.|
|Awww, cute. Purse belt. |
THE SELF BELT
|Avoid at all costs unless the garment is custom made.|
Swap any self belt for a leather or metal one.
Self belts on 99% of garments are not only
a cheap way to decorate but they look cheap.
