Cinch that waist

Belts have been in for a long time now and they aren't going anywhere anytime soon.  They are a simple accessory that can be thrown on with a t-shirt and jeans and also look fabulous with dresses, collared shirts, tunics, and even overtop of a little cardigan.  

Victoria Beckham wearing a grey tunic with a brown belt.

Nicole Richie wearing a gold belt with a black romper.

Compare these two looks.  Wearing the same satin dress, Lauren Conrad pulls the outfit altogether by adding a black leather belt.  By putting on this accessory, the waistline is accentuated making any body shape look slimmer.

Here are a few other examples of how Lauren Conrad ties her outfits together by adding a belt.

Lauren Conrad wearing a grey dress with a black skinny belt.

Notice how Lauren Conrad pairs her braided brown belt with her brown shoes.  Navy blue and brown go very well together too.

Eva Mendes mixes patterns wearing a black and white belt with a tan and white shirt.

Kate Moss mixes patterns and colours breaking up her striped dress with a light brown belt.

Cameron Diaz puts a belt on making a casual outfit look stylish.

Jessica Biel wearing a loose collared shirt with a brown belt.  I like how she chose a brown belt which goes well with her red shirt.

Here are some other examples of how to wear a belt with different kinds of looks.

Add colour and texture to your wardrobe and choose a belt that will stand out.
