Fashion Tip How to Belt a Dress

Fashion How to Belt a Dress

While summer is a great time to play, many of us also need to work. Wouldn't it be great if there were clothes that could do both - work and play. Well of course this exists, it's called a dress. Today I'm talking about a fashion tip - how to belt a dress.

I'm working with this great Treasure Dress from cabi. It's a vintage print with, wait for it, pockets. The rich colors are right on trend and can certainly be worn into September.

This great dress from cabi is a terrific piece to wear to the office. It's also a wardrobe item that can go from summer to early fall. The wrap styling makes it very flattering on most figures. I took it a step further - I belted it.

Why a belt? It accentuates the waistline and slims most of us. In my opinion, you want to use a contrasting belt. This belt is also from cabi and works with everything from jeans to dresses.

Robert Clergerie Poma Sandal

For the shoes, yes, they were a splurge. This sky blue Poma Sandal from Robert Clergerie are gorgeous and a pair I can walk in. As I get older I'm less likely to buy a stiletto. I want a heel that can support me. This pair can go from meetings to school pick up to date night without giving me blisters.

Ladies, our feet deserve better than discomfort. Let's all vow to only wear shoes that make us happy and serve our feet well. It's time for a footwear revolution! I'm having more fun than ever with my clothing choices and I hope you are too!
