Big Girl in a Skinny World: The Belt, a Fashion Must-Have

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

Hi Ladies,

My suggested must-have item for this week is something that I'm sure you all have. I'm talking about a belt. It's not like I think wearing a belt is ground breaking, but it is, in my opinion, the most common missing item in an outfit. A belt at the waist can instantly turn a frumpy dress in to a well-fitted number. Aside from its amazing cinching qualities, it can also serve as a statement piece and help to draw the eye to the slimmest part of your body.

Most Popular

Pick up a belt in a bright hue to add color to an all black ensemble. Target has several options and carries belts to size XXL. Try the Women's Mossimo Link Belt in purple or the Women's Merona Trouser Buclke Belt in green or orange. If you are looking for a neutral option with a little more flair, try Old Navy's Women's Plus Suede O-Ring Belt in Black Jack or Chinchilla. Looking to add a wild accent to your outfit? Try Lane Bryant's Reversible Fashion Belt in snakeskin green. For a night on the town, opt for a metallic approach with a Lauren by Ralph Lauren belt in silver or a skinny Calvin Klein Belt in smooth metallic. Try it—you might just find yourself adding a belt to every outfit you own. Let me know how it goes!
