How to choose belts for your outfits?


Some time back Ramya asked me this question over on Twitter. Ever since I have been thinking about this. Trust me, before she asked, I hadn't given a single thought to the concept of belts. Ever! Things that blogging makes me analyze :) 

Figuring out the belt fitting/styling is more of an art than a science. But these are some guidelines to follow if you are a complete novice:

Where? You have to first figure out where will you place your belt on your waist. Sometimes the spot will be a little higher than your natural waistline and sometimes a little lower. If you have regular bust size and a little extra 'something' around the midriff, positioning a belt above the waistline is usually the right spot. If you are short-waisted but well endowed, positioning a belt lower than the waistline in front and at waist level in the back is often the solution. If you are long waisted, wearing a belt high on the natural waist is usually most effective.

What? Choosing the width of the belt will depend on your waist and the outfit. It is hard to specify which belt will go with what. Usually if you are short waisted then skinny belts would be more flattering. However, if you are long waisted then you could go either broad or skinny depending on the dress/outfit.

How? Once you have figured out where and what, how is relatively easy. You can 
- choose a belt in the same color scheme as your outfit or go bold and pick one in contrast.  
- pair two belts together to wear double-color. 
- belt it over a jacket or under. 

If you are not used to wearing belts then it is natural to be hesitant to try instantly. But it is a process of trial and error, before you figure out exactly what works for you. To begin with you can just try it at home and click pictures for yourself to see how it looks.

I had done a Belt Tutorial last month, which incidentally goes with this post.
