Here's what I'm wear my skinny belts with:
- classic cardigans
- fly-away sweaters
- blazers (belted over the top or under "peeking out")
- knit or woven blouses
- basic dresses
- long tunics
It's the added bit of waist definition that seems to make all the difference. Instead of the top and bottom just coming together...the waist gets highlighted with the skinny belt and it magically "balances" my shape! It's easy, yet makes so much style sense.
The beauty of a skinny belt is it can be worn by so many different shaped women. No need for a "perfect" shape...no really! If you are short-waisted, a bit undefined in the torso or have a full bust...you'll often find a belt that is too wide "messes up" your body's proportions....whereas a SKINNY belt will be just right! Give the skinny belt a try-on.
I was at Target again yesterday... (Yes, I'm aware I go there often. Ya know, I didn't ask them to build it so close to my house, LOL) well, while at the store, I saw lots of adorable skinny belts hanging on the racks: animal prints (black/white, brown/black) there were bright pinks and yellows too...there were skinny belts for every wardrobe and budget! So, if you have a Target near you check out the accessory department for yourself...you'll probably buy one. (Me, I have enough already...so I looked for you. Yes, that's how I roll: I look for YOU)
This is the last weekend for wearing my sandals (mid-70's)
