July 20, 2011 – Forget the wide waist belts that pinch excess waist flesh (if you wear a very small size) and get quite uncomfortable to wear sometimes… the Skinny belt is in!
A skinny belt as the name suggests is a super thin belt that is used to accessorize outfits. They add a delicate touch to an outfit but that’s not all… you can wear them to add a dash of color and style to your outfit.
With a skinny belt you can do a mild “color block” (the patent ones are best for this effect). It gives you an edge while making you look with it!
Good thing is that you can wear your skinny belt with anything…cardigan/sweater, shirt, pants, skirts, dresses, coats, tops, blazers name it! And depending on what you are trying to achieve you can wear more than one. Just make sure you don’t overdo it when you decide to try the layered skinny belt look.
What I love about skinny belts is that they make a rather dull outfit come to life by adding a special something to your outfit. They are also very light and skinny you barely feel like you are wearing a belt.
If you don’t own a skinny belt, I recommend that you try one, compare the feeling and effect with the wide belt and then decide. I guarantee that you may want to keep the wide belt away for some time.
