You cannot believe the things a belt can do. It is one of my favorite little tricks for flattering any figure.
1 - Apple shape: A belt is your silhouette's very best friend. To thin your waist, look for dramatic styles with ornate buckles and rich colors. Wear them low-slung & askew to flatter your hips. (pictured above) All belts available at One Brilliant.
2 - Hourglass figure: play up your shape with a medium-width belt cinched right at the narrowest part of your waist. It draws the eye right to it & accentuates the shape you already have. We just received this fabulous belt pictured below available in black & brown at One Brilliant.
3 - Pear shape: Minimize your hips by bringing the focus up with a wide, embellished belt worn below the waist.
4 - Shorter torso: A medium width belt worn low at your hips will subtly drop your waistline and elongate your torso. It is a great way to balance your proportions.
5 - Boyish figure: To create curves, reach for a statement belt & wear it low on your waist, just above your hips. Over-the-top styles have the most impact.
A belt is an amazingly chic way to cinch your waist. Whatever your taste, we have a version for you. All belts available at One Brilliant.
