People that know me well, know that I love to throw a belt around just about anything – my dresses, my sweaters, my blazers and my coats…
If an item comes with a standard, matching tie belt, I often replace it with a regular leather belt to create a whole new feel and look. Adding a belt to any of your looks gives you an instant waist, which creates a figure flattering shape. It’s also an easy and inexpensive way to put together a very different and chic look.
Keep in mind when styling your look, to make sure your belt size is proportionate to your coat. For instance, if you are belting a thick coat, like the faux fur I’m wearing, your belt should be at least two-inches wide, otherwise it will get lost and is too dainty to look right for the heaviness of the coat. Whereas, a slim belt is perfect when paired with a more fitted, lighter-weight coat.(as seen in photos below).
