Day Four: Belt Savvy

Many women are belt shy, and shouldn’t be.  Belts are easy to wear if you choose the right one for your outfit and body, AND can really make an outfit.  Here are some of my favourites to try in the coming year:

Great for adding curves

My best advice for venturing into new belt territory: USE PINTEREST!  Go out, buy a belt that you like on you, then go home and search for ways to wear it.  You’d be amazed at what “thick brown belt” turns up.  Try it out, then take a breath and WEAR IT!  That’s all you need to do 🙂
