Let’s admit, Belts are often underappreciated when it comes to accessories. Mostly used only to hold those loose pants and denims on hip tightly. Rest of the time they lay in our wardrobe, never receiving much attention to it. Today, I will give you some tips that you need to know to wear belt as an accessory for any event or occasion.
Belts can make much impact to the over all look of an outfit. Any belt that is lying in your wardrobe can be used as an accessory. No need to buy any special types of belts. Let’s dive straight into the tips.
6 Best Tips You Should Know To Wear Belt As An Accessory
Belt and shoes:
Whenever you choose your belt keep in mind the nature of the whole look. Is it casual or dressy? Pairing up casual shoes with a casual belt, dressy shoes with dress belts is a good idea. Also, it will bring the whole look together.
Match color and Finishes:
While wearing belts as an accessory, keep in mind to match the color of finish of belt same as shoes. You can’t mix these and make a fashion fail moment.
Pick one statement shoes or belt:
Bringing in too many statement items can break your outfit as well. Always choose either of the item to focus on and keep other items subtle. This will enhance the belt from your outfit in this case.
For a modern look, camouflage the belt:
To bring in the modern element in your outfit, camouflage the belt and other accessories with the outfit. This will give your outfit a modernized look.
The Simple The Better
The simpler the buckle, slimmer the width, and less rugged the leather, the dresser the belt is going to look.
Use belts to add a little extra shape and visual interest to dresses, but you need to be careful if you’re trying to create shape where there is none.
If your belt is very long, tie it in different ways around your waist, just like I did in the picture. The extra length of the belt won’t dangle and also gives a dressier look to the outfit.
About the Whole look:
In this look I’m wearing a beautiful olive or emerald green H&M dress. It’s a straight-cut dress in sturdy jersey with 3/4th -length sleeves and front pockets.It is made of viscose, polyster and elastane. Feels very soft when worn and you can buy it for your next brunch date or evening dinner. My faourite part of the dress is pockets. I have added this white belt to the waist and looped the extra length. This gives a different look to the outfit. To keep the belt a statement, I went with minimal makeup and pink lips. Also, paired nude shoes to keep the belt as highlight of whole look (ps…ignore my tanned legs from the vacations).
That’s it for the tips ad tricks to style a belt as an accessory. In love with the colour after wearing this dress. Looking to experiment more such different colours in future. If you loved this post and found it useful, comment below your favourite tip from the whole lot.
