A belt can really turn any outfit upside down. A simple belt across your waist can either make or break your outfit. You can jazz up the palest looking outfit or you can add that extra inch of fabulousness to your already chic look with something as simple as a belt.
So what’s new this summer with belts and how can you jazz up your summer look with an awesome belt? Well, for starters, there are a variety of outfits with which you can belt yourself up. Wear it with jeans, shorts, skirts or dresses because a belt this summer is going to be burning hot.
A pair of colorful or denim shorts would look incomplete without a nice belt holding it together. You may choose to wear a T shirt with it or a buttoned down shirt and you can simply tuck it in to show off your fabulous belt. The right way to accessorize a pair of shorts with a belt would be going for a broad belt with a conspicuous buckle. As for the color, you can go with whatever best compliments your outfit and also stands out.
Just like a belt goes great with a hot pair of denim shorts, belts look fabulous with denim skirts too. Although, you must be careful not to overdo it by wearing belts with every type of skirt because belts don’t look great with formal, leather and long skirts. Casual miniskirts look terrific when paired with a belt.
We’ve been accessorizing our pairs of jeans with belts for as long as we can remember and it goes without saying that a tucked in T shirt with a pair of jeans and a belt with it looks simply amazing. So you can go ahead with this look for summer 2013 and you can add a bit of funkiness to it by alternating your blue denims with all the new bright colors like red, yellow, green, pink and purple for the summer.
Casual summer dresses with fun floral and abstract prints and designs look complete with a belt. The best part about this is that your belt need not match the color of your dress to the inch and you can play around with color and also the width of the belt as a smart way to let your belt stand out.
For summer 2013, you can pair belts up with a short summer dress or a long flowing Bohemian maxi dress, either way, it will look really beautiful.
