Monday, March 15, 2010 Right Now: Belt It!

belts

Though accessorizing with belts isn’t particularly new, lately we’ve been noticing fresh takes on cinching that deserve to be shared with our fellow Nasty Gals. During the chilly months, we love giving shape to otherwise bulky winter coats and cardigans with belts of all shapes and sizes, but thankfully this styling tip can easily be translated long after you shed the parka.

Whether you prefer rocking a low slung belt with a military-inspired ensemble a la Rag & Bone or using a waist-cincher to dress up a basic tee or classic trench, belts are a perfectly modern (not to mention affordable) way to add polish your spring wardrobe. We recommend investing in a timeless brown leather belt with some extra length so you can wear it at your hips or looped through at your waist as well as a few bold vintage numbers that pack a bit more punch.

So do tell, what’s your favorite way to accessorize with belts?

    I love to belt my over-sized cardigan over a loose fitting blouse on a windy day! :)
