Q&A:Styling With Belts

This week, an avid reader and dear friend of mine, Alyce from Blossom Heart asked me a question with regards to styling with belts. Here’s her question:

 

Q: Being post-babies, I’m still learning how to dress my new shape with it’s extra curves! I like wearing loose and flowy tops and tunics to camouflage the Girls and the extra padding on my hips, and then wearing a belt to highlight my waist and give me a nicer shape. But I have been wearing these 2 belts for a couple of years now, and am a bit stuck for inspiration as to what else I should have in my belt collection! More black? A grey? A plain brown? I need versatile and style, on a budget. What would you recommend?

A: Alyce, I do love the two belts that you’ve already got – the first one is great for casual wear and the carvings on the belt add some lovely texture and colours to the belt. The black one is such a versatile piece that you can wear with a skirt, pants and really, even jeans! While black is always a safe option, I would say, try belts in red and grey. Brown is another safe colour but can be a bit boring.

 

There are many shades of grey and if you like, choose a shade that is in between grey and brown – sort of like a washed out grey? That way you can wear it with your casual as well as slightly more dressier outfits. The type of belts and how you wear a belt can also change the look of your outfit. I’ve included some examples of belts and the colours I’ve mentioned. I’ve tried to find a slightly more cherry red belt but can’t seem to find an image of it.

Also, be sure to check out our post last week on the different ways that you can wear your belts. Some of the readers have got some amazingly interesting ways that even I didn’t think of.
Hope that helps you out a little Alyce!
