Fashion Math: Can You Wrap Your Head Around $25 For A Glittery Belt?

December 22, 2009 by Jeanine Edwards
shefinds | Style

If you haven’t already found what you’re going to wear on New Year’s Eve, the chances of you finding the perfect party dress before December 31st are dwindling. But if you’ve been following Michelle Obama‘s style diary, you know that an amazing belt can instantly dress up even the simplest of outfits. It doesn’t get more festive than this J. Crew crushed glitter sparkle belt, but it’s $25. You could buy a few cocktails with that money. Or a bottle of champagne, for that matter. But if you think about how many times you can actually wear this belt, it’s totally worth it. Let’s do the Fashion Math:

fashion math

If you wear this belt on New Year’s Eve, then wear it for the next two months every Saturday night out and once a week to work over a neutral cardigan or dress,  it will have cost you about the same as a bottle of water a day. The timing is perfect, actually. By the time March rolls around, there will be new trends to embrace and you can retire this glittery belt knowing you made it worth the 25 bucks. And when glitter and sequins come back-and you know they will because everything always does-you can whip out your sparkly belt and it will be as good as new.

Shop more great belts, plus choose your party dress now if you’re still on the lookout for one to wear for ringing in 2010. See more of our Fashion Math equations, and while you’re at it, taste your fashion know-how in our Taste Test archive.
