Designer Belts: Your Wardrobe's Defining Piece
Designer belts can be as individual as the person wearing them. Regardless of your style aesthetic, there is a gorgeous, designer belt that’s perfect for you. An eye-catching belt is one of the best and most interesting ways to spice up a drab dress or boring outfit. The possibilities are endless.
These days there are designer belts of every size, shape and style to flatter all figures. Skinny belts hearken back to the 1950s and add a touch of femininity. Dyed leather belts in various hues are a fun way to incorporate a taste of color into an outfit. Ann Taylor’s skinny rope belt in grass green and Julie K’s bright yellow Katie belt add playful shots of color at the waist.
Slim metal link belts like Yves Saint Laurent’s chain belt or even skinny metallic leather belts like Prada’s gold Saffiano plaque buckle belt give a cool, metallic effect. Beautiful leather belts with embellished buckles, like Roberto Cavalli’s gorgeous chunky, funky green stone-embellished waist belt add glamour to even dressed-down jeans.
Thick belts make a bold statement and add drama to slim, hourglass figures. Alexander McQueen’s fierce cutout patent leather belt is unbelievably hot paired with a body-hugging bandage dress or a pencil skirt for a super-sleek 1980s vixen look. By contrast, Stella McCartney’s “ballerina” blush pink wide lace up belt feels soft and sweet paired with summer dresses and skirts in neutral shades.
If you’re not sure how best to wear your belt, check Internet retail sites that carry designer belts. Many offer excellent advice on the type of clothing with which you can wear your belt. They can also give you pointers on what belt will be most flattering on your figure type. With a sense of adventure and a little know-how, your designer belt can easily become the defining piece in your wardrobe.
