Ac­cen­tu­ate your curves

The Sun (Malaysia) - - STYLE -

BELTS pulled in at the waist are great for en­hanc­ing your fig­ure. "Team­ing a belt with a boxy-cut top or dress cre­ates a gor­geous hour­glass sil­hou­ette," says fash­ion con­sul­tant An­dreas Rose.

"The belt is a tribute to women's waists," he ex­plains.

Belts have been a big fo­cus in fash­ion shows around the world re­cently. "A high-style belt above the hips and closer to the ribs de­fines the lines of the dress you are wear­ing and ac­cen­tu­ates a jacket or a coat."

Rose men­tions some ex­am­ples: "De­signer la­bels such as Prada, Alexan­der McQueen and Loewe are us­ing corset­like belts to add a touch of vin­tage glamour to their col­lec­tions."

The de­signs of the cur­rent crop of tight belts are di­verse.

Rose notes that "the so­phis­ti­cated fas­ten­ers on belts com­plete an out­fit and mean you don't need to wear other pieces of jew­ellery."

Women with curves should wear a wider belt, while women with a smaller build should go for some­thing more del­i­cate.

"I rec­om­mend us­ing a tight belt to style an over­sized blouse, or a very fem­i­nine dress or to gather in a coat or long jacket," he says. – dpa

A wide belt worn tight and well above the hips is a tes­ti­mo­nial to a woman's waist.
