Quick Tip Tuesday: Belt It {Loosey Goosey}

It’s time for another edition of Quick Tip Tuesday!  This time, Jelita asked for styling help with belting but loosey goosey {for those of us who don’t feel comfortable accentuating our waist}. 
The rules that seemed to work with loose belting and a cardigan: 

1.  The cardigan should be at or below the belt line (when the belt is sitting on the hips).
2.  The cardigan is worn over the belt.

{Keep in mind, I’m am not an expert!  This is just my humble opinion.}

Here, I have a Tucker for Target dress that really doesn’t have much shape until a belt is added.  I belted it on my hips.  Notice my hand is placed right below my natural waistline.  (I chose a short sleeve cardigan because of the larger sleeves on the dress.)

dress :: Tucker for Target
cardigan :: Target
belt :: ? from mom
shoes :: Stuart Weitzman
earrings :: Anthropologie

Here are two other outfits for demonstrative purposes. The foundation is a tunic.  The belt is right above my hips.  And the the cardigan falls right at the belt line.  I like this look a little less (when the cardigan is shorter).

cropped pants :: Limited
belt :: RL (from Marshall’s)
shoes :: Chanel
necklace :: gifted from mom
earrings :: Premier

Last one!  Here, the foundation is a jumpsuit (and conveniently the elastic falls at my hips).  The belt is on my hips.  And the cardigan/vest  is much longer.  {Mr. S calls these my ninja pants!}

Hope this helps for those people that want to belt it, but loosely!  Until the next Quick Tip Tuesday!
