How To Style A Belt!

2 years ago

Skinny belts have become a favorite of mine recently and a staple for my work wardrobe. They let me break up a plain dress, or bring together an outfit with a longer cardigan, and so on. I`ve had some weight loss recently, though, and some of my belts have become a bit big on me. In order to keep them up on my waist and not sliding down to my hip, I`ve found some ways to style them to hide the fact that they`re too big.

Of course, you can always do the old hammer and nail trail and just make a new hole on your belt if it becomes too big and you`ve run out of holes to use. The downside to this is that skinny belts like this don`t always have the loop on the opposite side to run the extra length of belt through. So here`s what I do :)

I feed my belt around itself to make a cute `knot` that isn`t too obnoxious and still looks cute with the outfit. To do this, I feed the extra length of belt underneath the part it`s naturally headed toward and then bring it up and under, tucking it underneath itself in the process (almost like a basic tie knot, really). It adds dimension to the belt while hiding the fact that it`s too long!

There are a bunch of different ways to style a belt that doesn`t have a loop to `hold` the extra length, but this is my go-to and favorite way. I normally do it with dresses or on top of cardigans higher up on my natural waist.

Let me know how you combat similar belt problems!
