When it comes to adding a belt, it has become more of a style accessory rather than a necessity since most of our pants and skirts are fitted. The most common way to wear a belt is at the waistband but you can also use it to cinch your waist.
Besides accessorizing your outfit, a belt can be used to add shape. In order to do this, the outfit has to have some extra fabric, like my oversized blazer, to shape up. Using a belt on a fitted dress would just look weird. Where you place your belt to define your body, all depends on your body shape.
If you have a defined waist, adding a belt is a great way to accentuate your waist. You can do this by adding a belt or wear an outfit that has one built in like a wrap dress. I love wrap dresses since they look good on everyone! But if you have a thick waist, trying to create an illusion of a thin waist doesn’t really work for you. It will only only draw attention to your waist which is something you don’t want. Make sure to place it where your waist is the tiniest. And wearing your belt like this will make your legs look longer.
This is a great if you have a round stomach. It helps give your body some structure. To do empire waisting, add the belt just below your boobs on your ribcage.
This is a good option to give structure if you don’t have a defined waist. It also works for women who have a defined waist but if you have large hips you should avoid it. If you have a short waist, wearing it low is a great way to elongate your torso.
