High-waisted belts


Love them or hate them, people just can’t seem to figure out when or how to wear them! Ah, the dreaded high-waisted belt. So here are a few tips: Thin to medium width belts work on most body types. If you are short waisted this is not necessarily the best look for you, but if you must, the thinner the belt the better. If you have a large chest, also stick to a thinner belt. Wearing a large belt with only exemplify your ample bust and not in a good way ladies! Color and texture can be your best friend with a belt. Purple, red, crocodile, patent leather, gold… The list goes on and on! I always suggest owning at least one metallic belt to give your outfit a pop without overwhelming the rest of the look.

Trick: Wear a blouse that is slightly longer than your hips and is a bit loose. By cinching it with a belt, you will truly be accentuating the smallest part of your body, your waist. Blouse the shirt slightly so the belt is the most fitted piece in your look. Inevitably your waist is now specifically the smallest part showing off that curvy body of yours!

How to wear textured tights

These tights are not just for the ultra sexy! Textured tights are a great and fun detail to funk up your outfit. It is also a very inexpensive way to change your look. Don’t be scared by crazy patterns, tone them down by wearing boots to cover up more of your leg and the tight. Another way to lessen the pattern and add warmth is to wear an opaque tight underneath the patterned tights. Layer up ladies!

My favorite brand is Hue because of their selection and price point, inexpensive! You can find them anywhere from Macy’s to Filene’s Basement. Be scared no more.
