Style Fix: Just Belt it

Oh, The Things a Belt Can Do!

For many seasons now, the belt has been a stylish accessory meant for more than simply holding up your pants. Why bother with a belt you ask? A belt can increase your style quotient in several ways. Wearing a belt as an accessory will give your outfit a focal point. A belt will rein in voluminous clothing to keep your waist in check. Belts can raise your waistline and therefore re-define your narrowest point while visually lengthening your legs. No matter your shape, size or age, this is one accessory that can look fantastic when worn in a non-standard way.

At a Wardrobe Remix session with a client recently, we changed things up by adding a belt to an already pretty and easy outfit.  Notice how much more interesting her outfit looks with just a simple change. The belt serves to keep her shape from getting lost when she still wants the coziness her soft, drapey cardigan offers. It also does a great job of creating a focal point for her outfit. Simple, right?
