Belts are really functional fashion pieces as well as play role of accessory. They are fixing our clothing, we need them especially when wearing jeans and trousers, and at the same time belts are able to highlight (or create appearance!) of feminine curves.
The only requirement belts have to meet is to be comfortable in wearing and provide reliable fixing.
Belts suit almost everyone, but it's important to choose your right color and width. General rule is the wider waistline is, the narrower belt shall be.
How to wear belts on different body shapes:
Wearing belts on figures with tummy
If you have a tummy (Apple Body Shape), wear your belt on the hips instead of waistline. Slightly pull the clothing out of the belt to create a loose look. It will perfectly cover your problem area. Also try to avoid wearing clothing tightly fitting at the tummy.
Wearing belts on full-busted figures
Full-busted figures (Inverted Triangle Body Shape) may look a bit heavy on the top. Wide belts will add on to the heavy look, so instead choose narrower belt models. Narrow belt will help to make full-busted figure look lighter.
Wearing belts on figures with wide hips
Figures with wide hips (Triangle Body Shape) look heavier at the bottom. Wear your belts loose, do not tie them tightly. It will make your hips look slimmed down and will add some lightness to the figure appearance.
General tips for wearing belts:
Buckle usually works as decorative element of the belt and draws increased attention to itself. If you are wearing belt with decorated buckle on the waist, make sure waistline is your figure strength and no flaws are visible.
Belt has to match the color of your other accessories, preferable bag or shoes. In this case they will complement each other and can be worn together complementing your outfits.
How not to wear belts:
Do not tie the belts too tight. Tightly fixed belts may create appearance of unnecessary curves around the waist (effect when the skin looks spilling over the belt) even if in fact you do not have them. And it just will not feel comfortable too, which is not less important.
