Style tip?  You can visually create curves where you don’t have any with a belt–wide or thin.  And if you are already blessed with curves, you can accentuate them with a belt.

What do you think?  Would you wear a cinched waist outfit?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    Never wear a cinched waist!!! There are very few figures that can get away with it. It generally does not create an attractive hourglass.

    While these runway examples aren’t the most figure flattering, there are some figures that can get away with a cinched waist. Especially those of us with boyish, straight-up-and-down figures can benefit from a belt at the waist to visually create curves.

    When wearing a belt similar to the DVF model, what can you do with the excess belt left hanging?

    Love. It. I think this is the most flattering silhouette on most figures – *especially* women with curves! I have an hourglass figure and my favorite outfit is a belted A-line skirt with a fitted top or a jacket that nips in at the waist. During 2007’s Year of the Clown Smocks I was frequently heard cursing out the Fashion Gods: “Where are the breasts? Where are the waists?” Everyone with T&A looked like they were wearing muumuus – not a good look!!!
