“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” ~Coco Chanel
“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”
“It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.”
— Alexander McQueen

A belt is a fashion must have. Yes this applies even if your pants fit perfectly. A belt has multiple uses. Belts add character and contrast to outfits. Also belts can be styled several different ways. Belts come in an array of colors and styles.I personally Think belts play an important role in an outfit. I believe belts are not just for fitting adjustments. I believe they are equally important in decorating an outfit.They give off a fun flare and can dress up or down our outfits.
One of the most versatile belt is the soft leather tie belt. This belt can be used for a dress, sweater, even use to extenuate the waist.This leather tie can be bowed, twisted or straight tied. A chain belt is elegant and classy. Here are a few ways to style different types of belt, Skinny belts: are ideal for adding a sophisticated, elegant feel to a suit or a pair of slacks Belts in simple lines and styles are perfect, for adding a little to an out fit. Solid colors (solid blue, solid red, etc.)Neutrals (such as black, brown, beige, white, etc.)simple belts in solid colors and with minimal embellishments. This belts will not take away form an outfit.
A belt can turn a plain outfit into, new fun outfit. When trying to put an out fit together first look for a belt, and find a great shoe or handbag that will match great together. Belts can be styled several different ways. To Create a Fashion Statement simply pair a plain, basic dress, and bring attention to your waist with a statement belt. Create a Trendy, Layered Look This can be a practical way to wear a belt (other than holding your pants up) which can also create a trendy, layered look that really nips the waist! Simply wrap a skinny belt around an open cardigan or a slightly too big shirt.
- I absolutely love the braided belt, paired with the floral dress. The belt matched with the wedges. This is great because matching the belt with shoes is a perfect way to land a fabulous outfit. The entire outfit can be purchased at Dailylook.com. The belt is just $12.99
- Leather Belt + Loose-Fit Dress—Not everything has to sit high at your waist. Wear your belt loose and slung around your hips to give a shapeless dress an interesting, ’70s silhouette.

Shiny Belt + Layered Cardigans—It’s hard not to look boxy in thick, textured cardigans and shirts. But if you cinch your waist with an eye-grabbing, skinny belt in a patent or bright color, you can keep from looking like a soup can.

Embellished Belt + Patterned Skirt—If your floaty skirt’s got a busy pattern, accentuate the chaos with an embellished belt. Not only does it keep the skirt in place, but it also gets in on the print-on-print trend without overwhelming the body.

Knotted, Skinny Belt + Trousers—To take the “Business Casual” out of structured trousers, we usually favor a long, skinny belt to notch and then loop around itself. Image via Zara; BP Skinny Woven Belt, $10, available at Nordstrom; J.Crew Notched Skinny Belt, $32.50, available at J.Crew.

I love this classy chic outfit. Coral Harem pants, black flats, whit basic top. “Brightly colored harem pants that taper at the bottom are a welcome change from basic slacks, and look sharp when paired with a crisp white top and tuxedo jacket. Pointed ankle strap heels are interview appropriate but still stylish, while an embellished chain link necklace, crystal bow bracelet, and chain flap purse are unforgettable”. This outfit is a perfect outfit for a sophisticated fashionista. I would wear this outfit for any fashionable event. I personal love this look because is following the color blocking trend perfectly with out overdoing it.

I love this look for Spring!! “Take a walk on the sunny side with this cheerful outfit. We fell head over heels for this for this bird printed blazer because of its unique print and thin material, making it perfect for spring and summer. When styled with a white cami, a bright high low skirt, and jeweled statement necklace, this outfit takes on a chic contemporary feel. Nude ankle strap heels elongate legs and a dark teal clutch adds polish.” I love the over sized bird blazer, it goes perfect with the bright skirt. It was best to pair nude pumps with this look because the print and the colors, and the statement necklace all speak for themselves.

“Sail the Rivera in this classic ensemble of red, white, and slim stripes. Crisp white jeggings with a reptile door-knocker belt look fresh and fun when paired with a red and white striped tank and long red blazer. A nylon tote bag with leather trim and simple strap heels are on trend for spring but still feel timeless, while a matte chain necklace and white and red bracelets anchor this stylish look.” I love this look all around.
