Trend Convert: The Skinny Belt
My latest fashion obsession? The skinny belt.
As a short-waisted girl, I am a longtime belt avoider. Wear something that draws attention to and accentuates my curves in the least flattering way? No thank you.
But the skinny belt has been a revelation for me. Chic, gentle definition of the waist and perfectly on trend for spring and summer. And it indulges my love for vaguely retro fashion — think 1930s.
My skinny brown patent belt is so versatile, I dare say it may replace my beloved shoe collection as my favorite go-to accessory. I’ve worn it twice in the past week. Once with a casual linen tunic and leggings for girls night out, and again with with a black silk DKNY dress for date night with my husband.
Belts at Goodwill are 99 cents. Really! For that price, you can afford to get many skinny belts in a variety of colors to add pop to any ensemble.
