August is here and fall fashion is on the horizon, so I’m getting more and more excited for fall and its wardrobe possibilities to arrive. I’ve started adding in a few plaid and striped blouses, along with couple cozy sweaters (love this one) in preparation of the cooler weather. I may not technically get to do back-to-school shopping (sans school and all) but I cannot resist adding in a few new wardrobe pieces each season, along with embracing a trend or two. One of my favorite trends for this coming fall is the simplest of all; a waist defining belt.
This simple addition is an instant update for any outfit and can easily run the gamut from classic to preppy to edgy. The cinched effect a belt gives to any ensemble is easy to create and takes mere moments to add on to any look or style. Add a belt over a favorite cardigan and blouse combination to bring the multiple layers in closer to the body for a figure flattering ensemble. Pair a leather belt on top of a sweet dress for added depth and drama or a classic skinny belt looped through your favorite denim is just right for a casual style.
