After a bit of a style dry spell on the belt front, the humble accessory is back with a bang. So, step forward with a pirate-inspired ‘swashbuckling’ belt – think, Captain Jack Sparrow – Pirates of the Caribbean.But before you buckle up, let’s explore the ups and downs of wearing belts.
A great belt can make or break an outfit. It can add a stylish touch to any outfit, so be sure to invest in at least one for your accessories collection. Accentuate your shape and create a feminine silhouette with a waist-pinching belt, or add an extra splash of colour to your jeans with a skinny belt in bright, pop colours. From classic plaited to chunky with metal letter detailing, you’ll be sure to make a style statement.
Some belts are made to be seen like this season’s offerings with cut-outs, metallic finishes, studded or stretch to cinch-in that lovely waist. At first glance a belt can look quite casual but added to a posh frock or smart trousers – celeb style, lifts them from a regular accessory to a mega-glamorous update.
So what are the styling rules?
The size of your belt needs to match your scale (based on the size of your bones), if you’re petite you need to wear narrower belts or the belt will wear you, if you’re average scale you need a belt of about 1.5 inches wide, if your shoe size is 38 and above you can really go for it and wear a 2.5 inch wide belt. Keep the buckle size in keeping with your scale too.
Belts are one of the best and cost effective ways to update your look this season, so if you have a great waist – you’re in!
