Trend Alert: Totally Waisted
April 11, 2006
Behold, the shape-shifting power of the belt. A recent article in the New York Times looked at the hip (and waist) status of this most versatile accessory. The belt is taking on MVP (and most ubiquitous) status this season as itâ€™s used to cinch waists, hang off the hips and generally enhance your hourglass or lack thereof. But with so many styles â€“ and great brands, like Linea Pelleâ€“ how do you ensure that your belting skills are on point? According to the Times, this seasonâ€™s four major styles are the low-slung hip belt, the corset belt, a multicolored, embroidered or metallic belt, and the wide raffia belt. They can be worn with just about any look, from white eyelet dresses to draped tunic tops. Find a designer belt for every day of the week at Bluefly.com.
