Belts Ė The Number One Fashion Accessory


Accessorizing has become a major part of a womanís wardrobe. You can turn a plain and otherwise boring outfit into a fashion statement, by simply spicing it up with a belt.

Today, there are literally hundreds, if not thousands of belt styles on the fashion market. They range from thick to narrow, chain belts to strings, buckles to ties and just about everything in between.

Any old outfit can be updated by simply adding a belt. The latest fashion trend is wrapping a high-waisted belt around a plain or bold pattern print dress. The wider belts give a flattering shape to petite, bustier women, while a narrow belt looks more appealing on a woman with a smaller bust.

When choosing to finish your look with a belt, it is important to match your belt to your shoes and/or your handbag. They donít have to be identical, but they must all blend into each other, unless you want to create a statement with your belt. For instance, if you are wearing a black A-line cocktail dress with black heels and are finishing it off with a turquoise belt, then you would not need to match it to your shoes.

When it comes to jewelry, if you are wearing gold jewelry, donít wear a belt with a silver buckle. Rather go for a buckle thatís gold or copper and always match it up to your accessories. The last thing you want is your belt to look like an afterthought.
