As I’ve mentioned previously, I am in a style slump.
For practically the entire winter, I rocked a pair of black leggings, a blouse, and black boots.
…and, yes, I even have been wearing that to work on the daily…
Don’t judge me too hard for that because I am making an effort to change.
I’ve spent the past few months making individual purchases to update my wardrobe.
My updates included dress trousers, velvet pumps, chunky sweaters, and even a vest!
I could style a manikin to perfection, but I’d probably hate how it looked on me. Horrible much?
In an attempt to get my
sexy style back, I called my
cousin for help.
She’s reliable in the sense that she is completely honest with how something looks on you.
Her advice doesn’t end there. She almost always has tips to modify different looks for your body type.
My body type is petite which means I drown in clothes. Luckily my cousin has a clever solution!
To develop a shape or help sharpen an outfit, just belt it!
Jax wear a belt? Aren’t those for men to keep their pants around their waist?
This has been the best fashion advice I’ve gotten in a while.
I’ve managed to take a few stylish garments out of retirement using this belt trend.
Loose sweaters that make you lose your shape? A belt will give you your shape back.
Slight muffin top on a bloated day? A chunky belt will help hide this.
Baggy shirts that over power you? A belt will find you.
Dress trousers and a blouse still look too casual? A slim belt will make you look sharp.
Who knew such a small thing could make such a huge different in the fashion department?
What are your belt tricks for the fashion challenged?
