Belt it!

One of our favorite ways to complete an outfit is by adding a belt. Some women are afraid to really accessorize with belts because they aren’t sure how to wear them, so we’ve come up with some fun and interesting ways to add them to any outfit!


Dress- Yoana Baraschi sz S/M $17

Turtleneck- M/L $36

Scarf- $12

Smaller Bead Necklace- $15

Larger Bead Necklace- $20

Tired of your plain old black belt? Try using a silk scarf as a belt! The scarf cinches in the waist of a shift dress to give you a great shape. Just knot it off to the side (almost like you would tie a men’s tie!)  and let the ends hang down.

Skinny Jeans- True Religion sz 23 $80

Sweater- H&M sz S $20

Scarf- Tolani $20

Necklace- $12

Belt- Streets Ahead $40

Bored with ways to wear your favorite pashmina scarf? Trying belting it! This works with a plain top and jeans, or a plain knit dress too.

Blazer- Elizabeth & James sz 6 $30

Dress- Silence & Noise sz 6 $24

Agate Necklace- Jay King $68

Patent Belt- sz M $12

A great way to give a longer blazer some shape is by cinching a skinny belt over it at your natural waist. Skinny belts are especially great if you are petite or curvy.

Gray Cowl Top- BCBG sz M/L $36

Blue Sweater- Neiman Marcus Cashmere sz M/L $36

Cardigan Sweater- Theory sz M $14

Skirt- W/D NY sz S/M $16

Necklace- $20

Braided Belt- $3

Knot a braided belt instead of buckling it the old-fashioned way for a unique look that adds interest. Don’t be afraid to put a belt over several thin layers, or an open sweater. Again, the belt keeps you from looking shapeless, and creates a nice proportionate look!

We’ve got loads of great belts in stock right now (many of which are on sale- did we mention we are marking down new sale items today since we will be closed for Thanksgiving tomorrow?!) so come on in and stock up!

Happy Turkey Day!
