Belts are often an overlooked and under-appreciated accessory. Yet, a great belt can make you look slimmer, pulled together, accentuate curves, and add bling to an otherwise bland outfit.

Consider This:

A thick black belt on a black dress instantly narrows the waist and highlights your curves.
A hip belt on top of a tunic will draw the eye down.
A skinny belt on a low-slung trouser makes you look polished.
A wide belt around the slimmest part of your waist creates an instant hourglass. Cinch it!
If the belt is big/bold, keep the jewelry simple.

Think of your belt as a piece of jewelry. Look for unique designs, styles, fabrics, and big buckles. Try out corset belts, hip belts, ethnic styles, red crocodile, green python, zebra print, etc. These are the kinds of belts that you can add to a white dress, a black dress, or jeans and a T-shirt -o and in seconds the look is transformed!!
